The Newest Miniatures I Am Finishing Up!

I am happy to announce that Peepers and CordeRoy are sold, so that means I have to get crackin' on the next items to put up in the gallery......

I just finished this tiny baby lop-eared bunny. I haven't named her yet. I decided I better make more HER creatures as I have had too many HIM ones. So this one is a SHE. Her name will be announced when she is launched on the Motivated Motion Gallery Site. She should be up on the site in around 24 hrs.

I am putting the final touches on "Weird Al-paca Yankovick". Which is my crazy curly haired Alpaca with a cute face. I still have to decide which eyes I am using on this one. I am trying to choose between the realistic taxidermy eyes, or my glass bead eyes.....
I am also working on my first cat. This one is a seal point siamese cat. He is an anitomical model which is spoken for already. I will post him on the gallery, but he will be marked sold when he is finished.

Isn't Weird Al-paca's face just sooo cute!!

Videos Are Coming Soon!

Yep that is right!
We are prepping some videos for the Needle Felting Gallery and this Blog.
I will introduce you to needle felting and show you how I create a piece.
The piece I do in the video will go on auction right away, so the person who wants it because they saw it made can bid on it right away!
I am very excited!

We have decided to create kits and have online classes you can access with each kit, so you now do not have to feel isolated from instruction.

Stand by for the videos. All being well they will be on the site within two weeks!

What an amazing night!
Carl and I have busied ourselves tonight with getting the new needle-felted items up on the Motivated Motion Gallery website.
For the first time I have chosen to post on Etsy in my shop that I have had registered for over a year.
Everything I will post on Etsy at this time will be charity pieces.
100% of the profits of these pieces will go to the growth of the York Region Animal Rescue League run by Nicole Dente.
She is on my friends list in my facebook. So please make friends with her and join her charity groups. I can tell you all the money she raises goes to help local animals with rescue, vet care and adoption.

I put two pieces up on Etsy : Harper and Peepers
If you click on each photo it will take you to the Etsy Page

If you clicked on Peepers Page you will notice he is sold.
Within 5 min of posting him on Etsy he sold!!
My Friend, and miniature collector bought him! I am thrilled to bits! She was the person who inspired me to make an owl after she told me a story about her family.
I was able to send her a sneak peek of the page right from the Etsy shop and she scooped little Peepers up right away!
There is a tear in my eye to know that I can give York Region Animal Rescue League 100% of the profits of this sale ASAP! Yipppeeeeee!
Thank you HB. I know Nicole thanks you too!

What Has Grown From My Imagination This Month....
Needle Felted OOAK At Their Finest!

I have been busy trying to co-ordinate a few pieces to be dedicated to my friend's charity.
I have decided that I will be putting two pieces up on Etsy solely to raise funds for Nicole Dente's efforts to help animals who need aid and rescue in York Region.

So next week Peepers the Owl and Harper the Harp Seal will be sold on Etsy with all of the profits going to Nicole's Charitable Efforts. I am personally holding a stake in helping Nicole get her Non Profit Status so she can then get corporations to help her efforts.
She has a great number of folks world wide who buy her products knowing the money goes to get vet care for abused animals, to find them homes or foster homes while they recover.
Please consider buying Peepers and Harper when they go up on the Motivated Motion Gallery.
I will only take $7.00 max to cover the materials, as the eyes are the big cost. I am donating my art and time to this and the rest of the money of the purchase will go straight to help Nicole get recognition for her work creating Unchain Ontario Dogs and York Region Animal Rescue League. Please look Nicole up on my friends list on My Facebook and make her your friend, and join her groups. Find my Facebook link in my Margin.

Come to Motivated Motion Gallery in the middle of next week and see these pieces up for sale and auction!

What is coming next? A sneak peek into what the students will be making at my workshops this fall, and my newest works- THE UNDEAD SERIES (a collection of zombies), and NINJA vs PIRATE (you figure it out)

Also for the super geeks... the future holds an homage to the greatest web passes in internet history....Do you like "Star Wars Kid", "Numa Numa"? Well...I got something in the works........!

If you are a collector and have a specific miniature you collect that I have yet to make you can send a request in comments and I will make one.

Please don't forget I also do commissioned work of folks pets and favorite teddy bears too.
