My muse has been so busy whispering to me about new ooaks she wants me to get started on. I thought that we had decided on beginning a new Santa. Apparently, I was sooo wrong. I didn't know that I was suppose to change directions until I was writing to a friend (waving at Johanna....hope you're feeling better) and telling her about the vintage carousel horse I was planning on using for the Santa piece. Once I posted a picture of the horse, my muse saw something else and immediately started pestering me. Hate when that happens. Don't you? Ummmm, your muse does do that to you too, yes?
Y'all know I love to write stories or poems to go with my ooaks. All of my characters have a story behind them. My imagination really lets their story or poem bring them to life and I feel as though I need to share it as well as the piece itself. I'm also starting a new way to do my COA (certificate of authenticity) when someone adopts one of my characters. I'm going to put their story/poem in a little handmade book. Like getting two pieces of art with one. Here's the poem that is going to go with the little KISSES jar.
