When I first came to Etsy.com to set up my shop I began to scout out the Holiday section to see how I would fit in with all the other shops. One of the first shops that I spotted was http://www.debralinker.etsy.com/ and her adorable "Folksy Santa" series of Christmas cards http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=16866617. I immediately fell in love with them and decided after I made my first sale those cards would be the first thing I would buy.
A month or so later I made my first sale and the first thing I did was, you guessed it, I bought those cards. Soon after Debra and I began messaging back and forth admiring each others work and soon we decided to collaborate and give each other permission to make and sell designs inspired by each others designs.
Well, I'm so excited to say that I finally have begun the crafting of her "Folksy Santa" ornaments and decided that it would be fun to show some of the progression of what goes in to making dough art and especially the dough art inspired by Debra's "Folksy Santa's".
Here are some being baked!
And here are some of the first ones I made in the series monday night all ready to go to my mom's house to be painted!
That's it for now! I will add more pics as I progress!
Bye for now!
