Sharing Mrs. Munson


You never know when you are creating... 
exactly what will happen.
 Sometimes a character will take on a life, beyond any expectations that you had, after you have created it....

It's especially surprising, when it comes from such a personal place as the memories that you hold dear.

I wanted a little witch tuck for the Doll House and also for my Fall show.
I didn't realize until she was finished, that she would look like someone held deep in my memory.
I do that a lot, but then, that is why we create and make art... it is reflection of our heart and soul.


I could not keep up with her.... 
I sold every one and made more.
Messages were pouring in.

While many were requests for her; 
there were some from those who had given a home to their own Mrs. Munson.

It didn't take long to realize that this stern and motherly Witch had become a confidante to many.



 When Better Homes and Gardens contacted me to see if I would release her to them; I thought, "how perfect"...so I have been mum to all those who have written and asked.

And she is ready!!!!



I can't wait to see what you all come up with! 

Please share your Mrs. Munson on my Facebook page. If you haven't already, put a "like" on my business page, please do so by clicking the picture for the link here:

Happy creating friends  ~*~

Hello Miz Stacey,
Mrs. Munson is wonderful. I am glad you are having such good fortune with her, good fortune always comes from the heart doesn't it.
Many blessings to come I am sure!
