Art and Adornment inspired by Nature & Fantasy


Heather Toupin, known as HeatherJeany, lives in a little house where she likes to make little things. In her words… “I collect forgotten odds and ends; bits of wire+ribbon, other people’s shopping lists, broken baby dolls, old lace, ripped up photographs. I love paper and pattern and birds. I especially like making big batches of [...]

Blame it on the sheep

Carol Boden Mania of Lodestar Wovens says it best….” “While homesteading 35 acres and smiling my way through the garden, I just knew I needed sheep, and so began my journey with “Stillwater” and “Wrinklebottom“. They provided both the insight and the inspiration. Self-taught, truly blessed and now 19 years later, all those spun fibers, [...]

Zombie Kitty, Mad Jack & the Boneyard

It’s a gorgeous sunny Saturday and I’m working on a few new pieces using my air dry clay, updating my Esty shop, as well as revisiting my “boneyard” to finish up on an old piece I started and let sit for two years.  Then it’s off to the races for the evening and some time [...]

WIP Wednesday

While we’re getting ready for our AHA Marketplace opening in a few hours, I thought I’d share my newest work in progress. A little mouse sculpted of air dry clay. I can’t decide if this little one should be a Halloween mouse or a Christmas mouse… What do you think??

Bye Bye Monday!

As Monday slips away into Tuesday, I’m hoping it will also take some of the rain with it. We do need it but it’s so dreary… I worked a bit on my little Halloween pumpkin pal today.  Imagine our surprise at finding an unwelcome guest that had been hiding inside!!! A few more tweaks and [...]

Do you like Halloween?
