New Products....A New Look

I've been busy lately, making products, products and more products to stock my new website with. Even though the new site is a few weeks away from being up and running, I've been atleast able to add a bunch of things to my one ETSY site.
This clock and jewelry box were created from my Brilliant Pink Rose on vintage ceiling tin painting. It has been great to see how all the different pieces look on the various surfaces.

This is my Red Dahlia watercolor on a tile coaster.

This is my Ocean View watercolor on canvas as a jewelry box.
This clock is the first item I ever had made and ordered for myself....it now hangs in my kitchen.

I've also been creating items from some of my favorite Orchid photos as well. This one is a Purple Vanda Orchid, made into a set of coasters.

Some Red & White Pansy Orchids made into a jewelry box.

Finally, a Pansy Orchid that is now a decorative framed tile. This is just a sneak peek and there will be more to come on my site but in the meantime I've listed as many as I can on ETSY - http://www.artfulcreations.etsy.com/ . I listed so many the other night that I worked for hours and ended up with a wrist that ached the next day so, I better lay off clicking that mouse for awhile.

Love your photos... so many beautiful things. And the Purple Vanda Orchid photo (I've never even heard of one until now) is spectacular! Lovely things.

Thanks Christi, Alicia & Jean... It really has been a lot of fun creating all these pieces. I have some wild ideas for shirts and tote bags for my seed packet art line that I'll be starting soon.

LOVE those orchid photos! They're fabulous! The clocks are such a wonderful and unique idea.

My husband does yoga and just loves it. I haven't found a yoga class that I like yet. :-) They're all too slow for me (I guess that the point) LOL!
