"Ix Chel" Mayan Divine Mother Goddess Guide Sculpture

I have completed another "guide" sculpture. This is Ix Chel, or Ixchel.  She is a Mayan goddess, revered as Divine Mother and she is also known as the moon goddess.  Ix Chel started showing up in my meditations a few months ago.  She has been contributing to my healing sessions regularly and I decided to sculpt her the way I see her with blue skin and in the "mother" aspect, rather than the maiden or crone.  She is dynamic, loving, beautiful, and always moving.  She is wise, powerful and an amazing healer.  I am blessed to know her energy.

About Ixchel

Ixchel is the ancient Maya goddess of fertility & healing. Ix means goddess of the feminine. Chel means rainbow or light. Ix Chel is known as Goddess of the Rainbow and Lady of Sacred Light. She is associated with bodies of water, lakes, streams, rivers and creeks. 


As the Maya moon goddess, sometimes called "Lady Rainbow", she wears a serpent on her head . The snake is associated with  Kundalini energy, medicine, healing powers and intuitive forces.

She is the goddess of fertility, motherhood , the moon and menstrual cycle. She is mother of all. 

As the Crone she is in charge of medicinal plants, healing and the moon phases. She carries spiritual knowledge and blesses the earth with rain - in a bad mood she sends floods and hurricanes.

I have had a little fascination with pugs lately.  No particular reason other than they are just so unusual and creepy-cute which is my favorite kind of cute.

 If you want a pug of your own stop by my shop...

Cake Toppers & Ornaments

I have a little trouble with consistency.  I would like to promise that I'll post once per week from now on, but that wouldn't last long and then I would have lied to you.  So instead I will promise to post when I feel inspired, and hopefully that will be more often than once per month!

Here are a few cake toppers and ornaments from February:

Just click on the pictures to see them in my shop.

Toy Story Character Sculptures #2

For the first post showing Bo Peep, her 3-headed sheep, Chuckles the Clown, and the Hockey Puck, see this link:

Here are a few more Toy Story inspired sculptures I've done over the last 18 months.

Trixie, Bonnie's dinosaur toy-
Trixie was my most time consuming Toy Story project, and definitely the largest.  This was by far the most difficult replica I've done.  She is over 16.5" long and it took me 60+ hours to complete.

The Robot:
 I made two of these, and they took about 40 hours each. They are 9.5" tall.  The robot has so many details that were challenging, yet the result is really fun.

 Now I need to show you the snake, because Robot and Snake are best buddies and they are almost always seen together in the Toy Story movies.

Snake is pretty fun to make.  I have made several snake replicas, they are jointed and each section moves.

That is it for today.  I have many more sculptures to share with you, so check in again to see the next round.

Thanks for stopping by!

Toy Story Inspired Character Sculptures

I have had a group of Toy Story collectors asking me to make 3-D reproductions of various Toy Story characters over the last 18 months.  Making 3-D reproductions of computer animated toys is not my favorite thing to do, but I have continued to do it because these collectors are VERY persistent and some of the characters are a lot of fun.  They have all posed challenges, and some were not fun at all to sculpt. All of them take a lot of time (usually way more time than I expected). Overall I think I am a better artist now because of this work, and ultimately that is the most valuable thing I have received from doing these sculptures.  Here are a few of the Toy Story characters I've reproduced:

Bo Peep's 3 Headed Sheep-
This is one of my favorites.  I just love the character of the sheep's faces.

Little Bo Peep- She was one of my most difficult sculptures.  Everything is so detailed on her, and I was SO HAPPY the day she was finished!

Chuckles the Clown-  This one was actually pretty fun.  He has a soft body with sculpted head, hands and feet.  I love sculpting clowns.

Hockey Puck-  This is an obscure character from the first Toy Story movie.

These are just a few of the many I have made.  I'll post again soon with some more images of Toy Story Characters.

Sock Monkey SMASH CAKE Toppers

Sometimes when ambitious party planning moms create fantastic parties for their little ones they have a regular sized cake for the party guests and they also have a very small "smash cake" for the birthday boy or girl to dig into.  This makes for fantastic photo opportunities!  Until recently I had a very tiny mini monkey serving as a smash cake topper in my shop, however at the request of many photo hungry mamas I was asked to make a slightly larger, more photogenic smash cake topper.

So here you have it...

 Smash cake topper with polka dots (and a red balloon add-on) for boys or girls.

and smash cake topper with flowers (and a red balloon add-on if desired) for girls.

The smash cake topper is only 3" tall.  I also made a matching 4.5" topper for the big cakes.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope at your next sock monkey birthday party everyone has a SMASHING good time!
