Off My Rocker is having a terrific giveaway

My First Giveaway!

Maggie from Off My Rocker is having a giveaway and I'm here to say, "You do not want to miss it!"

As most of you know, Maggie is my sister and the reason I'm sculpting again. She sent me an email with photos of this Santa and one other that she had made using a compound that she told me was paper mache clay. I could not believe that she had made these lovely little figures from paper mache. I had to see them in person and the minute I did it was love at first sight. I was hooked. I had to see what I could do with this strange compound. The Santa in the giveaway was the catalyst which induced my Santa sculpting frenzy.



Here are some of Maggie's Santa figures. As you can see, they are really detailed and each one is a treasure.  I think Maggie is caught up in the same Santa sculpting frenzy that I am.

Maggie is a very gifted artist. She doesn't just sculpt Santa figures either, she also makes the most amazingly imaginative art dolls.




This is one of my favorites. He's not just adorable to look at but he is standing on a music box. How great is that?




Here is another example of her work. I've seen this little darling in person and believe me the photo does not do him justice. He is the sweetest little fellow and I wouldn't mind adding him to my collection.

If you haven't visited her blog yet, now is the time to do it.  You really don't want to miss out on entering the giveaway.

Thanks for stopping by.
