Snowman Prints

 I've been working on snowmen in my studio for the past few weeks. I've made about 40 of them!  Some are standing, some are on rocking horses and some are jewelry.  I decided to take a break from the clay and painted these two paintings.  I'm going to make them into prints and cards to sell.

Published in PRIMS magazine fall 2014

These were my pilgrims that were selected to be in the latest issue of PRIMS magazine.  
I was very happy to get an email from the new editor to submit these for the issue. I love how they were photographed and I always love seeing my pieces in print!  

I love getting to do what I do every day.  It brings me a lot of peace.


BLOG hop

I'm participating in a blog hop!
I've never done anything like this before and I'm just renewing my blogging.  More details to come!

Back to the blog....

I've been working on making a new website and building my name in the past year.  I changed my business name from indigotwin to cortneyrectorDESIGNS and it's been a lot of work!  Since my name change I've been published in a new PRIMS magazine and made a million pieces of art.  Here are a few of my newest Santa designs, as well as some of my new packaging materials.
