Midnight Snow Holiday tree for Charity

Happy Holidays!! I'm donating my fun little "Midnight Snow" decorated tree to the Saint Joseph Downtown Associations "Winter Night Extravaganza" auction. All the money raised will go to the "Noyes Home" to purchase gifts for the children living at the home. The Noyes Home is very dear to our family...all my children went to school with children who live at the home. Noyes home is a safe place for kids to live while their parents try to get off drugs or find NEW home for the children. Noyes home is privately funded... I hope my donation will bring much needed funds.

Happy Holiday to all!

The Secret of Christmas
It's not the glow you feel when snow appears,

It's not the Christmas card you've sent for years,

Not the joyful sound when sleigh bells ring,

Or the merry songs children sing.

The little things you do on Christmas Day

Will not bring back the friend you've turned away.

So may I suggest the secret of Christmas

Is not the things you do at Christmas time,

But the little things you do all year through.


This is my favorite Holiday song...because it's so true! During this holday season don't get wrpped up in the hype and stress yourself out... give from your heart YEAR ROUND!

Happy Holidays!!

My new Hair-do

Crazy Hair day!!

Throughout my whole 27 years of marriage I did not color my hair. Then last spring I went NUTS!! And I’m loving it!! I found this wonderful little Hair Stylist Megan Thomas from the Hair Fair Ltd II( she is the one in the front of the photo at the “Halloween art spooktacular” ) Yesterday I changed my color AGAIN and it’s really cool and different. I went from Pink, dark brown and a little purple to Titanium, golden brown and a little blue! Megan also styled my hair into a really cool short cut! I just LOVE her style she is like an artist and gets so excited sculpting and coloring my hair. I’m going through a creative change right now . . . I’m creating an ALL Pink Christmas, Changing all my clothing into vintage and bright colors, redecorating my house! I’m going creative-Bananas!

Change is scary but for me it’s necessary sooo I can keep my creative juices fresh!!!

Happy CREATIVE Friday!

New designs...It's nice to be back

It’s been a great week!
I’m feeling back to my old funky self and started to design some unique stuff . . . a Yeti Holiday pin, Vamper Moon pin, witch wands and of course more of my ornaments. We have a new little shop in our downtown named Mod-Podge, it is owned by designer Casey Wallerstedt. Casey is a designer and textile’s artist her website is www.modpodge4u.com (I taught Casey Fimo art when she was in elementary school..I feel sooooo OLD!) .

Also I’m designing a Christmas tree to be auctioned off Tuesday, November 27th in the “Winter Night Extravaganza” hosted by the St. Joseph Downtown Association. All the money will go to the “Noyes Home” to be used for gifts for the children at the home. The Noyes home is very dear to our Families heart! I’m sculpting my Pixie Pine cone Chenille ornaments on a really cool metal 3 foot tree. It will have an outdoor rustic look . . . I’ll post photos when I’m done.

I better get to work! Have a great creative weekend!

NEW eBay store

As an artist I’m always challenging myself to try different things. This past Halloween with the Halloween Art Spooktacular I was totally burnt out and did not even want to look at another pumpkin! I know this feeling very well and it’s time for another change. So I opened a store to sell my “Yadiloh” ornaments and pins. My daughter Annie will be coming down this weekend and I hope she will help me with the store design. I’m really nervous stepping away from Halloween art (Just for a time) and jumping feet or head or Ass first into a whole new world, but that’s me always trying something new. So wish me luck and hope my customers like my new designs.

I’ll keep posting a couple Halloween themes designs under EHAG . . . I have a new line of Vampire art I want to introduce in December.
