FEATURED ETSY SHOP - WHIMSICAL CREATIONS

WELCOME....WHIMSICAL CREATIONS as a featured Etsy shop....! At Whimsical Creations you will find different colored snowflake ornaments, like the one shown above, whimsical children's necklaces, tiny character ornaments, which you can have personalized, and more. Be sure to pay a visit to WHIMSICAL CREATIONS. Christmas will be here sooner than we think. Let's find out a little bit more about Melanie, the creator behind Whimsical Creations.

What led you to start creating your art/craft?

My mother and her love of crafts. I made salt dough ornaments as a child with my mom.

How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?

I love to do many types of art, but I kept coming back to polymer clay. I love Christmas, and each year I like to create something new for family and friends. I have just started branching out by making beads and pendants.

What aspect of creating your art/craft do you find the most enjoyable?

Right now, I am finding my son's reactions to my creations fantastic. He loves to watch me work, and just recently I gave him some clay and let him create something. He wants one of everything I make.

If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?

I would have to choose fruit to describe my art. I find most of my creations sweet.

If you had to choose one other medium in which to display your “creativity”, what would that be, and why?

I would have to pick painting. I hadn't painted in years and just recently started painting some things for my kids bedrooms and a friend's nursery.

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art/craft?

Being fun and whimsical.

What advice do you have for other artists/crafters?

I have been doing this for years, but have only selling my creations for a few months. The only advice I can give is always to remember to have fun being creative.

Thanks, Melanie, for taking the time to share your fun whimsical creations with us. The personalization you offer with your creations is sure to make them keepsakes to be cherished through the years. You can also find out more about Melanie and her Wimsical Creations by visiting her blog.
