My On LIne Shops

Greetings again........I have been working on all my on line shops for the past couple of weeks. I believe that these shops will really help me to 'get out there'. If anyone has any other places for me to check out, please let me know. These are mine:




So today you can check out all these sites and let me know what you think of my shops.

This is my real booth -- Last year's League of New Hampshire Craftman's Fair --always starts the first Saturday in August.

Have a Great Sunday.......and I will be back soon with a couple new designs I am working on now.

Take Time to Enjoy the Little Things.

My mom is in the hospital with pneumonia, so time is important and so are the little things.

The Little Ones -- Birds & Ducks, that is....

These "Little Ones" are favorites with a lot of people. These are  wonderful little 3"x4" pieces.  I developed the series because I really wanted everyone to have a chance to have a piece of Sandra White. Since then, I have a few collectors who email me with this years new designs. They are helping me to decide what's next, but watching their feeders and letting me know what they have seen. I have found that only a few miles away can change what bird you have at the feeder.

The one challenge with these smaller pieces is that there is little room to make mistakes on color or design. It sometimes takes really tiny pieces to get that little bit of orange or green somewhere where it will be important in the whole picture. And then you step back and find it IS in the wrong place.  Try again....

The goldfinch is probably one of the best examples of the little bits in the right place. The wing is particularly challenging. And every time I do another one, the color location may change just a little -- that is because I think it is getting better.  But, you know, every bird is a little different, too. I guess the quilled picture depends on which bird is posing for me.

Then along came the Hummingbirds. There are so many different hummingbirds. We see the ruby throated hummingbird, so that was my choice for a design.

The other decision was what to do for a "scene" behind the bird......or is it in front?  This hummingbird is wonderful just flying, so he has no scene......this time!

Next time I will show you the Little Ones Ducks.....................
