Back to Basics…..

Hello All!
Well it’s been a while since I last creped…yes creped!
Have you missed my mad creations…maybe…. maybe not but I decided to get back into my true calling…yes crepe paper! I’ve been back at the sewing machine and hand creping away…Take a look, maybe you’ll find a ruffle or two you can use or a rosette to display amongst your fanciful artful creations.
I’ve listed them all on my Etsy site for your pleasure… I know a few of my faithful customers have had their way and will be just delighted when their packages arrive!!!
Onward and Happy Creping!!

Thanks for stopping by
and Happy September!!!

Halloween Rattle Workshop


Halloween Witchie Poo Rattle

Artist Ann-Denise Anderson

This Original Witchie Poo Halloween rattle is the quintessential Halloween favor. It’s reminiscent of the rattles from Germany back in the early 1900’s. This workshop will show you how to work with paper clay and all the accoutrements that you see here!

She measures at approx. 22 inches high and is detailed to the very hairs on her mole! Her dress attire is fashioned of crepe paper and she makes the best rattle noise, good enough to scare all those spooky spirits away this Halloween season!

I’m getting a little hungry and a good cup of Tea would be yummy right now……
Maybe , I’ll sit a spell, I don’t think anyone is using this cup…..tee hee
I hope someone comes by soon…

Paper Cowgirl Part 3

Well ladies this is it..the last of the pics…

I hope Y’all enjoyed  them

and hopefully this will have prompted you

to want to come to

Paper Cowgirl 2012!

Thanks again to all the instructors and students because without you none of this would ever be possible!!

Paper Cowgirl Part 3

 Also The winner Of the Paper Dress raffle was

Jean Callah!!!

She actually met Karla Nathan and Beth Leintz  at Smitten in McKinney, Texas and because of them she decide to take a stroll over to our neck of the woods and come to our vendor fair! So the rest is history!!

Congratulations Jean!!


This dress took me three days to construct. It has over three – four hundred coffee filters ( I lost track), some recycled, tea  and coffee stained, paper tissue, butcher paper, crepe paper all sewn and some pieces glued. The neck work is of paper clay, hand molded and antiqued. there was no pattern for this dress… just came straight from my own crazy mind!
