Deviant Art Doll in A Box

So did I tell you the story about loving to create?


this time I

decided to create something completely different. Not jewelry, not a painting. ....

can you guess by the above picture what my plan is that I have been forming in my head?

What I have been planning and now am pretty much finished with is what I will call a deviant art doll box.

A box that contains a beautiful doll that is missing half an arm. As with all art, there is a meaning. Love yourself as you are. Let others see your beauty under your superficial flaws. You are beautiful.

I painted a wood cigar box a teal blue on the inside and black on the outside. I used a silver permanent marker for the lettering:

"You are beautifully made and I accept you lovingly as you are"

Because this lovely girl is beautiful on her own, she doesn't feel the need to cover herself in fine clothes or jewels although she does favor them and they lay amongst her as treasure. They are more than simple treasure, they are memories captured in textiles and stone.
May your memories be sweet...

I love to create.

It creates a happiness in me
that doesn't leave.

I moved my jewelry into my storenvy exclusively and have decided to keep etsy for other art..

Today, I was thrift store shopping and came across this...

Shes a beautiful monster doll minus half an arm and I knew she had to come home with me for my next project. She's bolted and sewn together and her entire body is a greenish blue color. Shes perfect ...

So perfect in fact that I am going to create an art piece around her..... and then the art piece will go into my etsy shop

And She Painted the Afternoon Away

While the breeze rustled the trees
while the music continued on
she painted the afternoon away

Welcome to the Alice Painting
where there is hope
Where worlds intersect and collide in
unsuspecting and friendly ways

Where lyrics sing along the lines
of flowers that sprout from nowhere


May you have a beautiful day...

Head Turning Jewelry

For whatever reason your head turns quick
                                                                 to catch a glimpse
                                              of the jewelry the person that just walked by
                                                                  is adorned with.

Its asymmetrical, its quirky or just plain stunning. You admire the way it rest on their skin.

You think about how it would feel. You examine the colors and the way it catches the light.

                                               You appreciate the finery in every detail

The wire that bends like it has been catapulted into time and space with irreverence and a touch of grace

                        The pearls that stroke the skin and melt the fears within

The flowers that are forever in bloom

The crystals with deep glow

                                               and birds that have no where to go

Expressing Myself

I decided to doodle on a canvas with a fine marker

This sweet girl is dreaming of tea. The scent of it, the warmth of it and the pretty little cup she sips from

The bird is a hunter with broken wings, he hunts anyway. His spirit can not be broken.

The white canvas is absolute fun for me. later, I decided I must do more...

I have named this ghost figure Sue. Blue Sue. You will see why in later pictures. She is reaching out..

Every corner needs a few wild flowers..

And then the painting begins...and I must add words for I am a word girl...

The flower is a bright sunshine yellow and is strong despite winds of turmoil.

I add purple for a dramatic effect

The wildflowers get tiny bits of pink and yellow that matches the tea dreamer girls hair...

This little guy is just learning and is filled with love

I'm making progress after about three hours or so of work...Sue is now Blue

See? Blue Sue.

For Within Life and Death There is Beauty


Close up of the peacock tear drop shaped pearl that I wire wrapped with seed beads and hung a gold flower under.
Pretty gold flower with a crystal center

                                I am quite happy with how the pendant turned out.

                     Contemplating whom this necklace should be worn by....
