Older Pieces and New Beginnings

This is an older piece of mine, The HausMaus. He stands about a foot tall and is ceramic. The poor dear has a lovely crack running down his front after being badly abused as a door stop for a couple of years.
I plan to revist this little friend of mine in the coming year.... as there are big changes coming to the Pumpkinhaus.
With the advent of the new legistation (CPSIA) I will have to put my childrens items on hold until they can somehow ammend this poorly written law. It is happy/sad for me as far as my shop is concerned.... I feel I have been neglecting my first love of sculpture and dollmaking. I have always been searching for an excuse to fully switch gears and return to my roots, now, I have to. I am just glad that I have something that I love that I can fall back on... there are many, many wonderful shops that are looking at fully closing thier doors come Feb 10th.
I have plans to put my shop on a two week vacation starting Monday, Dec. 22. I will be doing some shop cleaning.... house cleaning..... kid cleaning.... kid cuddling.... Joe cuddling, you know, the important stuff!

And, I will return in 2009 with a bright, shiny new shop! I will post updates over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for an inside peek at all of the exciting new things to come! I can't wait to dig in and share!

I wish you the Happiest of Holiday Seasons! Now go give somebody you Love a Big, Big Bear Hug!!!!
