I am finally back and creating my new Santas for 2010....Here is the 1st and featured on artsaflutter.com
He is my Norwegian "Julenisse"
I plan on doing my Santa guys throughout the year. I just love working on them, collecting quilts, old buttons, bearding and vintage fabric for their creation.
Winter has not broken up yet here in the State of Wisconsin so it seems like Christmas to me!! i did see my first Robin yesterday and heard the first Wren of Spring so it can not be long now for the Spring rains to fall and the grass to turn green again. All we need now is a little heat to melt the gigantic snow piles. thanks for visiting Melissa Zietz..Melissa & Company

Summer is on the way!!

I have been out of it for a while..My best buddy..my 14 year old Schipperke Pepper left us in April and have been very sad. But the good news is we are expecting a new Pup into our family in 4 weeks. he like Pepper is a Schipperke and from a breeder and dog rescue in Iowa.. I am so happy once again but will never let my old dog out of my heart!!
Currently trying my best to be in the groove again creating Patriotic Fellas, Santas, Witches and maybe a few Pumpkin Boys once again!!...Melissa Zietz of Melissa & Company
