Warm holiday greetings and wishes for a Happy New Year to you all!

What a year it has been here! Our flooding this summer certainly was the big event of the year, but things have been gradually getting back to "normal" more and more each month. I am so thankful for all of the blessings that have come about this year, and that my family and loved ones are all well. We have so very much to be grateful for, and are looking forward to 2011 with great anticipation!

Killian and Kaleena always insist that I make some Eclectus creations for you every Christmas! They are quite proud to be so perfectly colored for the holiday, and love modeling for me, so it has become an annual tradition now I think! Here is the selection I have created for you this year!


Up for auction are a Male Eclectus bracelet charm, Male Eclectus cell/purse charm (not shown), Male Eclectus charm for necklace, Male Eclectus charm choker necklace, Male Eclectus pendant (no cord), Male Eclectus pendant on cord, Male Eclectus glass beaded necklace/earring set, Female Eclectus pendant on cord, and a Female Eclectus glass beaded necklace/earring set.

Please note that these items are on auction for the next THREE DAYS (not a week, like usual) as well as having a Buy It Now option for those of you needing to get them quickly for gift giving! Go to my eBay Store to see the entire list of new items available!

 

CUSTOM ORDER NEWS:


Well, at long last, I'm coming to the end of what has sometimes felt like a never-ending list of custom orders that have kept me so busy over the last few years! Within the next month or two, I will be having the first opening for new custom orders since 2009!

Just a handful of custom orders are left for this year, then I will begin updating my website with new pricing, adding more current example photos, and some other much needed updates. I will send out a newsletter in January with the exact date that I plan to put the order form up, so that you will have a little time to plan ahead and get ready to place your custom orders.

Thank you again to all of you that have been waiting so patiently for your chance to place a custom order! I am looking forward to working with you this coming year!

Killian, Kaleena and I want to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's a perfect time of the year to take some time to reflect on the many blessings in our lives - and one of the things I am so very grateful for is your continued interest and support of my artwork through the years! Many of you have consistently been following my work, some from the very beginning 10 years ago, and have become treasured loyal customers. I can't even say how much it means to me - thank you!

One way I can show my appreciation is to offer another sale - so from now until Christmas, I am putting all current eBay Store Items on SALE - 5% off!

Can it really be that time of the year already? It doesn't seem possible, but the air is getting crisp, leaves are turning, and the holidays are just around the corner! Killian, Kaleena and I hope that you and your feathered friends have a fun Halloween!

Talking about Halloween, I have created three special one-of-a-kind pieces to celebrate this month's holiday: a Sun Conure Pumpkin Pin (or Magnet), Congo Grey Pumpkin Necklace and Timneh Grey Witch necklace! You can check them out on eBay this week on auction.

Earlier this year I was introduced to the magnificent Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos of Australia by one of my wonderful ornithologist customers! I had never seen photos of them before, or even heard of them before for that matter, since they are very rare here in the US. I was itching to sculpt something new that I've never created before, so I chose the male of this species for the October Bird of the Month!

The male Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos on auction for the next week include the following: bracelet charm, choker necklace, pendant on cord, and a glass beaded necklace/earring set!

Killian and Kaleena would like to send out a BIG "Thank you!" to those of you who voted for our entry in the Pampered Parrot Giveaway! I recently was informed that my "bumper sticker slogan" won, so the birdies will be getting some new toys and goodies soon, what fun!

Talking about Killian and Kaleena, it's molting time here, and they have been very generous with some lovely feather contributions, so I have created an assortment of earrings! :) You can check them out on eBay this week on auction.


Three Goffin's Cockatoos and a new Congo African Grey Pendant are on sale in auctions this week on eBay! There is also a new one of a kind jewelry set features a vibrant parrot that was hand sculpted from leftover scraps of clay, all swirled together. I love making these "scrap clay birds", you never know what they will look like!

After the flooding in June, I am so happy to report that I have moved back in now, the birds were able to return to my studio last week, and it is starting to resemble normal life a bit more every day. It was such a great feeling to get my hands back in clay last week, after over a month away from work! YAY!

I want to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you that emailed or messaged me on Facebook when you heard the news of the flooding, and all of your well wishes, I so appreciate it! Besides the support of my wonderful family, I have 5 very adorable furry and feathered friends whose sweet faces and silly antics have certainly helped keep me smiling in the midst of this little "bump along the road"! :)

 

SUMMER SALE!

I am working to get back on my feet financially after the flood, and wanting to sell as much inventory as possible right now, so I have started a Summer Sale in my eBay Store. All Fixed Price (Buy It Now) items are 5% off through the end of August! I hope you will stop by my store and browse! It might be the perfect time to start some early Christmas shopping. :)
