My first winner OWOH- Debbi from Diamond Grove

Debbi from the blog Diamond Grove is my first winner and this is her Angel. She loves fall and anything to do with fall.
She wanted an angel and is an angel from what I can see on her blog and the small amount I have talked to her.
She calls her children "Diamonds in the rough" and posts on thursdays something she calls "thankful thursdays" (How beautiful is this? I love it) .
She loves to craft and is happily married with 3 little angels in training.
Debbi also plays with the clay and I am so happy this little angel is going home to her. Her angel is filled with inspiration to aid her in her love of crafts, home, and gratitude.
Check out Debbi, my 1st angel (I mean my 1st OWOH winner) and her blog Diamond Grove - Debbi says "where I am surrounded by people and things that help me shine".

Debbi's angel is adorned with a crown of acorns, has a heart and wings hand sculpted of antique gold cernit washed in black ne-opaque paint to bring out the details, the face is molded from my own mold made from one of my original sculpts and is gold cernit washed in black ne-opaque for definition, and the angel also sports the hand sculpted fall harvest symbols with a one off scarecrow to chase away any fears that Debbi may find. It is made with gun metal 16 gauge artistic wire and the hand sculpted Cernit pieces are attached with 24 gauge artistic wire.
I too, adore a fun fall piece and this was a pleasure to make. I hope you like it Debbi.


  1. Marie, this angel is beautiful. I love all the details that go into your pieces. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Marie, wow, this Angel is awesome! Of course everything you make I love! I'd like to say Congrats to Debbi on her winning this gorgeous Fall Angel. I may visit her at her blog. I hope that you have a great rest of your evening Marie, I've been busy beading all day today so the time flew by, which for the way I feel is great! Giant hugs to you Sweetie and to Madi. Talk to you sometime tomorrow.
    Hugs and much love...

  3. OMG!!! There is sooooo much detail in this----you are amazing!!!
    As soon as I have the banners off the table, I have to get back to the paperclay and try a few things.
    I am inspired.....well, at least until things start going wrong! LOL!!!!
    Take care!♥♥♥


  4. Debbi is a lucky ducky - but she sounds like such a lovely person that I will be happy for her. :) How are you, Marie? I am thinking of you and sending you a big old Monday hug (those are often the biggest because we need the extra OOMPH for the week). xox Pam
    PS Give Madi a kiss on her nose from me.

  19. Thank you so much Liz. I love sharing the pieces.
    I love making them, but it is so rewarding when someone else likes to look at them.

  20. Thank you so much Bobbi. You are so sweet.
    I kiss Madi all over her face for you. Someone hs to do it I guess.
    Hope you are feeling better.
    Love and hugs.

  21. Oh Thank you Anne. I am so glad to hear your banners are progressing too.
    I am looking forward to seeing what you do with the paper clay. There is so much detail you can accomplish by adding paint.

  22. Thank you for the monday hugs, boy was that great timing. I did need them.
    I kissed Madi all over her face for you Pam. I figured I had to do it for Bobbi, might as well do it again ;-D.
    Love and huge hugs to you too.

  23. Thanks Faerielore, I hope she does. I shipped it out to her at the beginning of the week she should be getting it any day.
    Glad to hear spring is finally making its way to you, so very nice after a wet, snowy, and cold winter.
    Flowers seem so much brighter, don't they?
    ...Grass greener too.
