‘florida snow’ - ink, gloss medium, spackle, thread, and matte medium on watercolour paper. this piece is from around 2015 originally and recently showed up in ~tropical dreams~, it’s funny to me because it’s almost an exact copy and i usually change things up more, it’s also part of an ongoing series based off my personal collection of theme park mugs @lala4adolla #psychicjacuzzi #drawing #sculpture #softsculpture #universalstudios #souvenir #mug

It has been said that on the night that the first forest was born, the woodland creatures all gathered at its heart. They worked together in the moonlight collecting the softest bits from the forest floor. Fallen feathers, velvety mushroom caps, clouds of green moss and the seeds from one hundred dandelions. It is with these objects that they made up the dreamiest of beds at the base of the very first tree. Just before dawn a hush began to fall. As the last piece of moss was carefully placed each creature gently closed their eyes and began to whisper wishes of hope for the forest. The creatures were not quick to open their eyes, each taking a moment of thoughtful silence. Their eyes were closed for so long in fact that they began to fall asleep. While they slept a calming rain fell on the newborn forest. One by one the creatures awoke from their slumber and a wave of happiness washed over them. The magical bed they had created was no longer empty. There under a blanket of green moss clouds, atop a bed of fallen feathers, velvety mushroom caps and the seeds of one hundred dandelions slept The Everwilde, and the creatures new then that their whispers had been heard. The Everwilde are rare creatures indeed. Brought forth from hope they are the the protectors of the forest, the guardians. They wander through the woods humming a tune that inspires the bees to buzz, the buds to bloom and the breeze to blow. Connected at their core the Everwilde will survive as long as the forests do.

You guys. My life this week, while hectic and tiring, has been so fun. More on that in another post, but today is all about these middle school art pieces and me getting to pretend I’m an art teacher. 😊
Taking inspiration from Claes Oldenburg soft sculptures, Bethel Park fifth graders are sewing up classic Pittsburgh foods.
I’m all smiles today. #claesoldenburg #softsculpture #kidsewing #pittsburgh

Size reference *I’m 5’5”*
I think she might be called Blossom 🌸I’m undecided as to whether to give my dolls names, or leave that up to their new owners. I’d love to know what you think. If you’re a maker, do you name your creations? Or if you buy a handmade treasure- do you prefer to give it a name yourself?
It’s been a while since I posted here. Sorry for the long silence. Moving and setting new work space. Promise to show a few new dolls soon 🌿
Fuzzy & new

Just a little hedgehog exploring the outdoors! I felt silly taking pictures of this guy in front of my office building, actually had some people come up to see what I was doing and do a double take and ask if this was a real hedgehog haha. I made this little guy as a gift for a friend!
