Happy New Year and Flashback

Hi all! I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope that all of your faerie wishes come true at the New Years Ball!

And I wanted to take a moment for a flashback rewind to the old days for me. I remember all the great concerts me and my friends used to save our change and any little bit of money we pulled together at our fast food jobs just to get to the show in town on the weekend. One of my absolute favorites was Jon Bon Jovi! He always sings with such emotion and powerful energy. If any of you were ever there at one of his concerts you will remember how he would fly across the crowd with a a harness... I can remember him stopping for a song right above me once so close I could jump up and grab him ... I ALMOST did lol!

Some of the girls would wear ball gowns to the concerts. How time flies when you are having fun! This song brings back lots of lost memories for me. And its a good one to say goodbye and end the events of 2016 going into the new...thought I would share.

((hugs to you all)) You know who you are...


Updated: I had to add an update to this post and REMOVE Jon Bon Jovi video-for the point of it. I have recently came across some info about what a jerk he has been ruthless to the bands he "helped". I agree with the poster of one comment, Karma always comes back to get you. Especially when you are greedy!! Richie However does the right thing!

But as for Jon I am no longer a fan :O(

A little Scrooge rant before Christmas...

Hi All

It has come to my attention yet again that a certain artist is copying my work. She even sent out a christmas notice to her customers with a troll painted face just like my etheric elves with a jewel in the forehead. She is from Norway and one would think that her being born in the home of the trolls would inspire her own original ideas... yet not. So I decided to write a poem to the Scrooge Shirley on this fine holiday.

And also announce that I will begin a secret section that only my customers can sign up and have access to see private listings. That way no one will have access to certain trolls except the buyers. Look for that section coming soon! Tammy

Troll Scrooge Shirley
by Tammy

Shirley Shirley the copycat
Stealing ideas and inspirations
How dare you take from others joy
And soil their aspirations!

Shirley Shirley surely has talent of her own
if only she understood how true artists have grown
Through our own hard work, trial and error
From our dreams and visions!

Shirley Shirley surely wishes to be like us!
They say that imitation is the surest form of flattery...
And being inspired is one thing ...but not searches from bing!
Not when stealing from our art supply money
And our livelyhood to pay our bills, honey!

You undercut our prices and lie to the collectors,
The fans that know us all and have an eye for beauty!
Shirley surely they know you are a Scrooge this christmas
Stealing the art from all the other artists holiday sales!
Santa surely has you on his naughty list...
For your art compared to ours Shirley, surely PALES!

Siberian Falcon, the beautiful Circa

I thought I would share the day here at the studio with you all. We got a visit today from a beautiful Siberian Falcon mix from Russia. Her name is Circa and she is 6 months old. Her owner who is an experienced bird of prey handler brought her out for a while. She has a barn she shares with a lovely owl that will be making a guest appearance with Fairy Willow characters look for that coming soon.

She was absolutely beautiful and well behaved.  We were all freezing and she was perfectly at home.

The Gnomes Winter Gift!

Their gift and my gift to you ! I had the idea to try and combine all of the crazy art forms that I know in one holiday short. Sadly I ran out of time to get as much in as I wanted. So much to do!

I was late getting this out and had hoped to have it done by the first. Hope you all enjoy and love to hear comments!

Rupert and Ludo

Linda sent the cutest photo of Rupert in his new home! The tiny little guy next to him is Ludo named after Ludo from the Labyrinth! Isn't he adorable? Rupert is about 6 almost 7 inches tall so that tells you exactly how tiny little Ludo is. So cute. 

Thanks Linda for letting me share your photo!

Its October-watchout for the Gremlins!!!

Oh what an awesome blog post I have today... I got to meet Mark Dodson, he stopped by my shop for a visit. And brought something so awesome and amazing that I had to run and get my camera! Any Gremlin fans out there?? Well here is the unboxing... of one of the original Gremlins from the 1984 movie kept in the best near mint condition possible by Mark. It has recently been acquired by a collector and is with us for some restoration work. He will be on display at the Witch's Dungeon museum for Halloween!

Here are the photos... he still looks like a creepy little devil. Mark is an amazing voice actor and did the voices for creatures in Starwars and the Gremlins. Maybe one day soon we can talk him into switching to TROOOLLLS! oh yea ;O) He sounded up for it !! How exciting...

Please take a minute to visit Marks site here for some great Gremlin sha-grins!

Something Different...

Today I am being a little creative and working on something a little different. I plan on adding a shopping cart to my website and am in the process of redesigning it right now. I want to have some new pretty exciting things available so that I can entice my fans to move over to my site instead of Etsy.

These swords started from an idea I had for making these for myself. I have been really inspired by sword dancing and have been practicing the art myself. But I need a good sturdy duo sword set. I will post more about the idea behind this soon... here are the first rough versions. There will also be practice daggers too !

Video of an awesome Russian sword dancer

Kitten Adoption videos on vimeo

Stop by and check out some of these sweet kitties in need. Helping my friend Juliet try and find homes for these little guys. She came up with this great idea for using crazy talk. It really gives them a voice of their own to be heard. If you are in the area, there may be a new friend waiting for you.
