A LITTLE ZETTI EVERYDAY

I love a little Zetti everyday!

We each have a few things on our list that we think we can't live without each day. I am sure that on the top of many lists would be coffee and maybe chocolate,.. maybe not in that order and probably not that short. To make my day the happiest and the most peaceful, I have to be in the process of creating something everyday. In the creative moment, or in the creative thought process. At any rate, that is the most peaceful place on the planet for me when I am in that mode.  

I started making these little Artist Trading Blocks when they were included in a workshop I took last summer for Art Dolls with Mary Jane Chadbourne over at Artful Gathering. I had so much fun making the art dolls that I never got around to making of the ATB's. Recently, a swap opened up for them among the same group that took the class and that gave me just the push I needed to get started making mine. Once I completed my two for the swap, I couldn't stop making them. The ideas are unlimited as to what you can do with them, but I really like these little whimsical girls and I call them "The Girls on the Block". They begin with a 2 1/2"X 31/2" block of wood. Mine are 3/14 inch thick, but I am in the process of making some 1 1/2" thick, currently a work in progress.

 Flowers are people too!  I totally stole this phrase from my friend Lisa who made me a beautiful journal page of a sunflower face that says: "Sunflowers are people too" Love you Lisa.  

I like to complete all sides of the block, and adding beads and feet is another addition that gives each block their own personality. I am not sure when I will get stop making these, they are so much fun. I have some listed in my Etsy shop and each one is so hard to let go! :) Take a peek in my Etsy shop. I am listing more as I make them and soon will be adding another exciting feature with these girls!


 Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you Creative Magic everyday and New Found Joys!

  4. Kim, these are so darling. I can see you are having fun. Following on your blog now. Here's mine if you'd like to take a peak. Not quite so colorful as yours, but it does show what I do in Ukraine too. I'd be honored if you wanted to follow. www.vintageterrace2.blogspot.com
