Follow your heart




Here are some of my old clay works! (Which I would love to try remake with colored clay- these are painted) I think one of these dudes was the first thing I sold when I moved back to selling on etsy when I made the animal totem alphabet sculpting one animal for each letter of be alphabet animals a-z (which I recommend as a great project to dive into. It is a good fun thing to really help your skills with sculpting by reading and studying about animals postures, poses and specific details that make them each unique is so worth it!) if you decide to give something like this a try or if you come up with another project to dive into by reading this I would love for you to tag me along in your journey. 

I have come quite a ways in my sculpting over the past few years. I want to share this with you so you can see that I was not always the best at it, yes some were sloppy some were so difficult I almost gave up but i didn't. I continued sculpting. I worked hard and believed in myself to get my art to where it is today, and guess what it? It will even get better from here! it's a constant work of learning and expanding to new levels of making awesome things even more awesome. 

Please continue to follow your heart your dreams and keep making what you want... PLEASE keep at it, keep going, keep trying you will make mistakes you will get frustrated. Trust me I have started over countless times in one piece- (sometimes taking a break from it and coming back to it with fresh eyes helps greatly!) Don't don't give up on yourself. Keep doing what you love making what you make be it art or music or ANYTHING, please follow your heart and the rest will follow. I love you all and thank you for being here with me. 

xoxo

I am truly humbled by reaching 25 thousand friendly faces in the world of weebeasts on instagram. 
 Thank YOU! I am overjoyed with happiness to have you here as a part of it what I do and what I share, because it is more than just me, you are a big part of it and I appreciate every little thing that you do. I am inspired by all of the constant love and support I get from all of YOU. The simplest things bring joy in life (stale popcorn anyone?) and I am honored to continue to share that simple joy through the wonderful world of weebeasts and their friends.
This is just the beginning, and as this year moves along I have lots of new things to come.I have been working on some pretty exciting things for us. It’s SO hard for me to not share it with you but it’s going to be worth the wait! I will have a full announcement of it towards the end of this year. I am looking forward to the journey ahead and to continue to share my love and joy with all of you through these stale popcorn loving pals called weebeasts.
p.s. Reminder: Did you know that with each adult weebeast adopted you are entered to win a custom adult weebeast at the end of this year?

new adoptions 3- 28 16

Hello!

This weeks update is a fun and special one- I have teamed up with the awesomely talented Aimee of Weftward Company she has hand woven a little blankets made of sustainable vegan friendly good for all of the weebeasts in this weeks update.

Please be sure to check out more of her work in her shop:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/WeftwardCompany)p.s. they are so soft!


This weeks weebeasts are a bison weebeast and a cactus weebeast. Travel is a big inspiration in my work and we just recently visited Arizona, which made me fall in love with cacti even more. Seeing so many was pretty awesome for my coniferous michigander eyes. Sierra was named after Sierra, Arizona.

One of my favorite places to go is to Wyoming and Yellowstone, .... you know the Bison if you've been there! We have been fortunate to have seen many of them on our trips there in the past and they have easily become of of my favorite animals, so a weebeast form was calling me! I named the bison weebeast after Hayden Valley in yellowstone.

Shop will be updated today monday 3-28-16 at 11:00 am EST
