Beautiful Cane Work!

Hello and Thank You for stopping by my blog today!!  I put together a beautiful treasury and wanted to share it with you!  The polymer clay artisans that I see while browsing through Etsy really amaze me with their talent!  I hope you'll visit each of their shops.  In addition to the beautiful cane work pieces you see here, each artisan has many other lovely items to see, all of which would make wonderful gifts for someone special (and even for yourself too!) 

*Click:  "CANE WORK"  ~ It will take you to The Polymer Clayspot, a site with all kinds of great information about polymer clay cane work and more.  You can see what's involved in creating these wonderful works of art.

We bundled up very warm and went to the Snowfest in Frankenmuth last night, and it was a lot of fun!  Frankenmuth is Michigan's Little Bavaria, and the architecture of the shops and buildings reflect the Bavarian charm.  The trees that line the main street were strung with white twinkly lights, giving it such a magical feel. We arrived just in time to see the very end of the fireworks show, which lit up the winter sky beautifully.  This year they are celebrating the 20th Anniversary for the Zehnder's Snowfest.  I read that twenty years ago they would have been happy to have had 10,000 visitors come to see the snow carving competition... that first year they had about 80,000 visitors ~ a success from the very start!  The annual event brings world-class snow and ice carvers to Little Bavaria, and they all did an amazing job this year... by the end of the weekend they will attract about 150,000 visitors to view their incredible work!  As we walked up and down the main street, sipping hot chocolate to keep warm, we enjoyed all the snow and ice sculptures ~ and I took lots of pictures, here are a few...  Enjoy!

Have a wonderful day! ~Trina

.¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥ Today I am featuring one of my favorite artists, Shawna Erback.  I absolutely love her work.  She is a professional artist, and she paints and designs almost every day.  Her paintings and prints are in high end stores all around the world.  Looking through her Etsy Shop, Shawna Erback Studios, to pick just a few of her beautiful works of art to feature on my blog was difficult, because I love them all!  But I did choose a few and I hope you'll visit her Etsy Shop to see more of her wonderful paintings and prints ~ and to learn more about her.  I enjoyed reading her Etsy profile, learning about what painting and creating means to her... Here's the link, so that you can read it too:  http://www.etsy.com/people/shawnaerback.   Also, be sure to check out her Etsy Shop Announcement to see what is happening in her shop right now!   And don't forget to visit her website as well, at:  shawnaerback.com

Night Time Prayers...

.¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
(¸.•´ (¸.•` ♥ A sweet little boy kneeling with his dog to say his night time prayers...  Reminds me of when my kids were little and they would kneel beside their bed and say their night time prayers.  Such sweet memories of those images in my head!  The sweet, innocent beauty of a child with their head bowed and their hands folded, as they pray for good things and good health for all the people they love.  When I created this figurine, I thought it would be a very special gift for a First Communion or Confirmation.  Coming Soon... I am creating a little girl kneeling with her kitty saying her night time prayers.
