Studio Mascot

cupcake studio mascotIn honor of one of my words of the year, I’ve adopted a studio mascot!

This clever little character is sitting in my studio, keeping a close eye on me. Better not slack off or try to get away with anything – I might get smacked with that brush!

This charming little cupcake is the creation of Karly at Bittersweetz, who makes fantastic characters out of polymer clay. The personalities in her  shop are irresistible.

Browse around her Etsy shop here: and her Facebook  page:!/pages/Bitter-Sweetz/123038717753621

When I asked Karly to make me a mascot, I gave her some basic ideas (pink frosting), but she picked up ideas from the artwork in my Etsy shop. Here the photo of my mascot next to my Golden Flowers ACEO. Look familiar? How clever is that!

The other photo shows my mascot perched among my supplies, looking right at home and ready to get to work.

    Such a wonderful idea! Aww so cute and inspiring at the same time. I’d love one of those! Maybe I’ll pop on by her shop too.

    Hope you are having a fabulous weekend Karen!

    Thanks, Vanessa! I just can’t stop smiling at it! I wanted a cupcake, but also something with attitude, and couldn’t quite imagine how that would work out. Karly made it happen.

    So…the studio is calling! I’d better get in there!
