happy NieNie day!!

thank you soooo much!!!!
Okay we go!!
First off, thank you so much for stopping by.
there are literally TONS of auctions
celebrating NieNie day today and I can't
wait to go check them all out.
there is a full list of participants on

introducing my little contribution...

one of my original wall sculpture lulettes
created just for NieNie day!!

"happy NieNie day" measures 8 inches tall.
she is hand sculpted from polymer clay,
painted in acrylic paints and
finished off with a satin glaze.
her style is very primitive and oh so funky!
she holds a lovely little house that
has a snippet of vintage text saying
there are a little bunch of red balloons
as well! She has a hanger attached to her flat back,
so that she hangs on your favorite wall!
one thing that touches me so
much about Stephanie is her love of home
and family. I hope that you might
want to have this little piece of art and hope
for your home...thank you oodles for stopping in
you guys!!!!!

Yay Barbara! What a beautiful gesture for Nie! I think that is a fantastic idea! Thank you Jenn! It was so fun, but mostly so enlightening! To see so many people rally around folks we don't even know but care about none the less, is some of the best medicine there is! I love this lttle community on Etsy! Thank you for bringing us all together for this very special day!

As Nie would say-Kisses! Janel
