Inspiration from within.....

I've always been quite partial to Gnomes (maybe because I'm small in stature and I find Gnomes to be comforting and relatable). Anyway, I remembered a Halloween photo from two years ago that I thought would be funny to post for this blog entry. You can say that it was my inspiration for this new Gnome Doll.....
This was my costume in 2007.
Nuff said.

Have a Great Week!

New Gnomes and Lumberjacks!!!

This weekend I've been busy working on some re-orders for some shops and Etsy, making birthday gifts for my adorable niece and nephew, and creating these two new characters:

I've had sketches for these two dolls for a while now, but I never had the time to sit down and make them. I'm pretty pleased with the end result. I just need to make an ax for the lumberjack.

The Gnome and the Lumberjack will be available in my Etsy shop!!

Gnomes $25.00

Lumberjack $25.00
Stay tuned for more new dolls!! And the launch of my new site in May!!

Movin on up.....and out!

Hello Everyone,
My posts have been few and far between because I find myself with a never ending to-do list these days. When one project or idea is completed I quickly move to the next thing without hesitation. I'm a mover, a shaker....
Anyway, I just wanted to let all of you know that Sweet & Sour Goodies will be sold at the following locations all across the U.S.!! I'm so excited for this phase of Sweet & Sour. I've discovered so many things through this 2nd year of business and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for S & S. Other exciting things to come including some craft shows and maybe even a mid-year sale (you know, something to get those economy juices flowing!)
