Swirling into Autumn

The Fall season is upon us and this quartet is perfect to celebrate the season with the apple, mushroom, leaf imagery. The scalloped edges are glittered with a vibrant orange glitter.
Celebrate apple-picking season with our newest ornament. 
A bright green apple tree is embellished with tiny red seed beads

 A ghost and a pumpkin make up this quartet, along with candy corn and a lollipop.

Based on our popular Home for Holidays house, this autumn themed ornament has rich colors of oranges and reds while glitter makes it shimmer.

A spooky glow-in-the-dark skull is encased in a wire cage with a black grow for company.

Whooo loves the fall! Our Swirly owl does, that’s who.

These 3 mini swirly ghosts are floating around again this season.

Inspired by vintage papier mache treat bags, ours doesn’t hold treats but sure will make you smile with it’s bright colors and tinsel handle.

How do you like these apples? A sweet pair of luscious apples ready for picking!

One of our newest 3D mixed materials ornament is this pumpkin who likes candy! 
Made with ultra light clay, color wire, tinsel glitter, cupcake cup and paper.  

 Who’s in the tree? Mr. Gray squirrel is hanging out in our swirly tree, holding a paper leaf as an acorn dangles below. A green chiffon ribbon (which was chosen from our Facebook fans!) 
finishes off this ornament.
Gobble Gobble! Our swirly turkey is not just for Thanksgiving! 
Decorate your fall tree with a few of these great birds!

Sharing the Love!

Everyday here at the studio we are either working or celebrating some holiday and today is no different. Today we are celebrating Valentine's Day! Yes you heard us right! We know it's September, but we are so excited to see our Valentine's designs in the pages of:
We have been a fan of this wonderful magazine since 2008 and it is the only magazines out there that we know of, that showcases all the holidays in one issue. So for us to be a part of the new 2012 issue of Somerset Holidays & Celebrations well all we can say is... 
we are tickled pink!

The project that we contributed to the issue is titled: Sweet Mini Valentine's Ornaments. We have a how-to for five of our Swirly Valentine's designs. We updated our popular Swirly Cupids from our Valentine's collection this year to fit more with the look and style of the magazine (if you ever have seen the magazine you can quickly get a feeling of the style of artists that are in the magazine.) We added text to the body of one of the cupid designs and the other cupid we added a heart charm and sliver tinsel glitter. We then did a dry brushing of gold to create more of an aged look.
So get your craft on and make your own version of these sweet swirlies and be sure to send us pictures of your work, we'd love to see it. Look for a copy at your bookstore or you can order a copy here.

Here are a few more shots (not in the issue) that we took here at the studio before we sent them to the magazine.
