I've been busy making more 'Maubles', they are such fun to make.
They make great last minute gifts.
I have these and more listed on ebay and etsy.........see links on the left.

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my Maubles.
A lot of you want to know where and how you can get hold of the pattern.......I wanted to answer all your emails individually but I didn't have all your email addresses-
You can purchase the pattern from me at this point, either the traditional paper black & white version or as a full colour e- pattern, where I send it to you attached to a email and you have it instantly.

Both versions are $15 (Australian) or $13 (U.S), plus postage for the paper version. I can accept payments through Pay Pal to this email address-
The paper version will also be available at the usual U.S outlets in approx. 2 weeks, (that is how long the mail takes to travel to the U.S from Australia).

Thank you so much for your interest.

Gee I can't believe November is almost over, We're rushing into Christmas and I haven't even thought about presents, it gets harder with teenagers, what do you buy them? Anyway I wanted to make some new Christmas ornaments and this is what I came up with, I call them Merry Maubles, I've even written the pattern for them.
To my friends in the U.S & Canada, have a Happy & safe Thanksgiving....

Starting working on a new doll, made his head for the Clay over Cloth class that is currently running -for more info click on the link on the left. Now I've decided he looked like and old elf, so far I made him glasses so he can see better and given him pants, can't have him hanging around in his undies.

I recently tried something different from dolls, I experimented with some impasto medium on canvas, painted over it with acrylics, then I sculpted 2 small fairies from polymer clay, this is what I came up with.

Halloween Doll

Thought I would get into the Halloween spirit early this year by making a pumpkin themed doll, his name is Jack O' Pumpkin

He's a bit more country style from my usual stuff, what do you think?

I must apologise for the state of my web site, I haven't been able to update it, my a few months ago we lost all the files when my computer died and I haven't been able to work out another way to do it, so the best thing I think is start all over, in the meantime my current site has deteriorated all by itself, every time I look at it the pics and text are more overlapped.
In the meantime I will continue to update my blog.
If you would like to know about anything on my site please email me at-
Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you keep returning.

more Gargoyle

Here is a bit more of my gargoyle done, started to give him a bit of colour, don't know if I'm happy with it though.


Just want to show you a pic of my cat Fluf, he just turned 10 this month, he's so gorgeous, he runs the house or tries to.

Most Recent Project

My most recent venture is my gargoyle, I've wanted to make one for years, drew pics of him months ago but never got around to it. Last week I thought it was time to bring him to life.
I had to write a class on Paper Clay over Cloth, so I made a cloth head then covered it with clay.
This was the beginnings of my gargoyle.............

August 2007- Cat Stump Doll

In August 2007, I've been designing my cat stump doll, I couldn't come up with a decent name so I asked everyone, had a few suggestions but nothing jumped out at me.
As I was working on her, I thought of the word masquerade, by the time she was finished she became Meow Squerade, my kids laughed at me but that's who she here
she is my new pattern-
Meow Squerade.......
