Our Newest












AT LAST!!!
We finally got our little fellows listed on EBAY last evening.... with Pumpkin Glop to spare!!! This was a fun one to make...trying to figure out things and how best to make something work and look natural...those are always the fun ones...What I took a chance with was both of us jumped right into this one started making dolls and props... and then it dawned on us... 'What if I can't make the Pumpkin Glop look real enough...what then'!!! So it was a tad 'bass-ackwards'
but in the end I think we managed to make the 'glop' look pretty real....tee hee...I even added a bit of 'fall spice fragrance' to the mix... smells yummy... WOW...SMELL-O-VISION Art!!
Also the little Drac Bust is a miniature 'Faux Marble' that we listed...
With a few big pieces pending...we are thinking these will unfortunately be our last goodies to list this Halloween Season...BOO-HOO!! I so wanted to make some witches...
Here is the Listing for more Pictures Elves and Drac
Off and Running...much to get done today...one being Clean Up the 'Glop' mess I made....
Going Kayaking tomorrow...first time for the fall season...VERY excited...
Hugs To All on this Fine Fall Tuesday

I realy, really love this! I love the glop too!

Drac looks like one of your followers. I forget the mans name but he has a great sense of humour from what i can tell.
What size is Drac?
He's fab too!

Tace said...

Let me add my words, 'Gorgeous, drool-worthy and sooooooooo cool" to the teetering pile of praise already here. :D You guys rock! I especially love the details of authentic looking pumpkin glop and fall spice fragrance. That's brilliant! Wish I could smell your glop, never thought I'd utter words like those before...hahaha.
I just love the expressions on their faces and your hands, er, their hands are AWESOME. Great photos, thanks for sharing.

Sue said...

Oh my!!! And again.....Oh My!!!

Amazing! And yes, the pumpkin goop looks good enough to roast.

The talent that you two have astounds me. I am in awe.

Hugs

Sprite said...

My gawd Jodi, could you two be any more awesome? hmm yeah...didn't think so ;) I feel like i'm looking in on something very real. The punkie sprites are incredible, even the punkin itself, man you're makin me feel a bit bad for the sad little one I made today. ha ha ha. The Drac Bust is really cool too. Not that you'll need it but great luck on ebay!!:) Seriously amazing work as always.

Have fun kayaking tomorrow!

hugs, Sprite

julie campbell said...

So wonderful Jodi ! it made me smile too ,I remember that glop getting everywhwere when my kids were a bit smaller and we used to hollow out the pumpkins for halloween ! here in the UK we used turnips when I was a kid as pumpkins werent available and they were such hard work to hollow out ! pumpkins are so much more fun LOL and these little fellows are just perfect :0)Love drac too !

WendiesMiniWorld said...

WOW!!! this is by far one of my most favourite pieces ever! maybe i say that every time you create something new?.... but I really mean it this time, the 'slop' looks so real! I absolutely love them! especialy the little guy with the clipboard and slops on his head :o) just wish I was rich enough to be able to afford them :o( I might have to go buy a lottery ticket or two and keep everything crossed!!! LOL

jennywren said...

Oh these two little chaps are just adorable! I just love everything about it. Their expressions are priceless - just can't help smiling when you see them. Their clothes are such fun and the detail is just perfect too - the clever way the platform is hooked onto the pumkin, the ticksheet and blueprint!!! Brilliant, no need to wish you good luck with the Ebay sales but I do anyway.

LDWatkins said...

Incredible! Speechless. Enjoy being out on the water.

William Bezek said...

Fayette said...

Hello,

Just a comment---your newest piece, the "Punkie Sprites" are absolutely delightful---as usual! I am wishing I was rich instead of soooo good-lookin’ (ha, ha). Those punkin guts and the fun blueprint are especially nice touches----love ‘em.

I am sure I have probably inquired about this before---but, are you two ever going to do a book of your doll art??? It would be great for those of us who are a tad bit poorer than many of your collectors. If so, I will start saving my pennies now!

I look forward to seeing what creations are coming next.

A fan---

fairly new follower here, and I really dont want to repeat previous compliments, but WOW! your pumkin goop looks better that what was inside my real pumpkin!! Your work is truely inspiring! :)

Creager Studios said...

Howdy Do Chris...

Thanks bunch...so happy you like the Glop and Crew!
Happy Happy Weekend to you as well my friend...

Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Fayette..

Great to see you...so happy that you are enjoying our little Sprites..
Thanks for asking about an Art Doll Book...actually it's weird...we have received several private emails about this very same subject since liting the Sprites...We have kicked this idea around for a few years now..but think that maybe it is indeed time to produce a small book of Dolls and Stories. We would self produce so will need to look into that first..and see what's involved... But I do believe that by next year we will be producing our first little book...thanks for the push...
Hugs,
Jodi

Creager Studios said...

Hi Lori...

So very nice to meet you, welcome to the blog...
Thanks too for your vry nice compliments...
Hugs,
Jodi

joanna said...

Fayette, Ditto on the Book idea!

I just love reading the little stories and background that ya'LL create along with the wee creations.

It will be a great book and great gift idea also.

Keep us posted...

hugz,

Creager Studios said...

Well zippity doo dah Joanna...that is good news that you too think it's a good idea for us to look into... it really is something I have always wanted to do...I do love to write and have about a million stories in my head....and lord knows we have the doll photos..looks like this thing is looking better and better all the time...

Hugs,
Jodi
