New Orleans to Jamaica - small shop update

My husband and I had some nice travels to get out of this cold snow/weather. We flew down to the lovely New Orleans. I will have to say I always adore that city. It's full of art that brings a smile to my face. Every time we have been there we stumble across a new art gallery or artist that amazes me. It's one place that I always enjoy visiting there. The hotel we stayed at was a historical little place that really felt like a part of NOLA, plus it had a resident cat, win win in my book ;) 
After New Orleans we had a night in Miami to chill before our cruise. From our room we saw a pelican diving for fish (he caught one too!) Sometime around 3 in the morning while I was sleeping Mike called me from the balcony because you could hear the dolphins squeeking and making their dolphin calls - half asleep I skittered over to it and ran right in to the glass door, (dork points +7 because I only hit it with my knee. ;)

From there we enjoyed a 311(have you heard of them? maybe you'll like them, look them up and give them a listen) Jamaican Cruise, it was a nice time. We enjoyed the sunshine! Our balcony had a nice view and from it we saw a large bird catch some flying fish. That was the first time I ever say a flying fish so I actually thought it was a smaller bird he was after at first, hehehe.
I would love to hear some of your favorite bands or places to visit if you care to share <3

And yes so now I'm playing a little catch up with shop updates, but there are 3 new Teeny's available: A bison, a laying lion and a Barn owl. Each Teeny comes in a clear box for displaying them/ putting them in your pocket? Which ever you choose I'm sure they will be happy

Jumping Beans.... from me to you with love


When I was younger my dad would bring home Mexican jumping beans, they came in the cutest little plastic boxes with a little pad to keep them safe, when you took them out to hold and examine the beans the warmth of your hands made them move around (well the larva inside of them anyway). Although they were so small, they made me so happy. They were so mysterious and fun and slightly magical. 


As a maker, my work is proudly cherished in the homes of many... both near and far. It has been gifted, traded, and and shared amongst friends and family through this world wide web. 

In a wonderfully weird way my art is my way of sharing the love and fun that those little jumping beans were to me with all of you.

My creatures may not jump around with the warmth of your hands like the beans did...but who knows what they are up to when your not looking. ;)
