A beautiful sunny day... perfect for picture taking!
Little Miss selected this new teddy as her favorite...
... she pinned him close to her heart~
He is going to be listed in my Etsy store
with fourteen other teddy friends!
Bright yellow for the bee hive bear...
Sweet soft pink for the delicate girl...
Rich blue for the Americana bear and his star charm...
LOVE finding buttons... LOVE sharing them!
Many friends, family, students ask me about art.
How do you become one?
How do you get ideas?
How do you keep people from stealing your ideas?
How do you know they're not just buying it...
and copying it?
How can I sell my art?
Ooodles of questions from VERY talented,
creative and unique people!
Each answer I give starts the same way...
"BE UNIQUE. BE YOURSELF. DON'T COPY...
DON'T TRACE... Come up with your own ideas."
Art is from inside of each of us.
We all see the world in a unique way...
We add our own personality...
to be one of a kind.
I rarely purchase from copycats.
I can tell the original artist because it's details
are fine. It's feeling, moving.
It's quality... top notch.
You can be awesome.
Step out of the box to discover your own style.
Don't be afraid of people stealing your art~
It's not fun.
It's not fair.
I Federal Copyright EVERY piece I design.
Don't let cheaters stop you from being creative!
There is an amazing amount of fun to be had~
And a world of WONDERFUL PEOPLE who enjoy
collecting pieces from people like
