Pikki & Kippi the black athletic creatures!

Name: Pikki & Kippi
What I do: Look for high places to play
Task: Train with others for a possible escape
Likes: To play badminton
Body: Lightweight, small, dark skin and fleshy red lips
Ability: Good jumper
Food: Plants

They do everything together and usually Kippi carries Pikki above, he doesn't mind because he knows Kippi would do the same for him, this is called totem behavior.
These two athletic Kritures, since the day they have found racquets, they know that they were meant to play badminton. The problem is that one of them is a lefty and other one is a right hander, so one of them have a huge tendency to lose games. This is a good way to know who's who when both are on the ground.

Where did the year go?

Wow. What a crazy year! We started doing shows 13 months ago with our creepy little Grimmleigh's dolls, and we really had no idea what was coming! We're not quitting our day jobs by any means, but people seem to like what we have been doing. The best part has been watching people start to "get" what we're doing!

Being part of Monster Etsy has been awesome, too. There has been a lot of camaraderie and support out there, and we really appreciate it. Even though we haven't been very active for a while, the support we found here has been a large part of why we have been able to become more active with our local craft scene, start a craft co-op, and get the word out about the hand-crafts movement.

Whatever the years ahead bring, we just wanted to say thanks to everyone at Monster Etsy, and encourage everyone to keep doing what you are doing, supporting each other, and being a great team!

This is Onyx Derful. She is a sprightly friend filled with music and hugs. She is a commission for some one who wanted teal and pink. And Tahdah!
Derfuls like warm soft places and quiet moments. They tend to travel in packs because if one Derful is good, many derfuls are fantastic!

Clay and Fur Creatures - Kriture

Soft Kritures are the union between clay Kritures and plush. They are totally malleable, and are prepared for children to play or to hang in your car, as they don't break so easily. Each one has a Kriture sewed tag in the back and instead of glued, the clay is sewed into the fabric so it lasts for ever.

The eyes on this one glows in the dark.
Each one is OOAK and have 3.5" (9cm) height, 2.4" (6 cm) weight and is less than 30gr.

Here you have some of the pics, visit the store for more info about this creatures and more pics! :D

The wallet caddies are done!

I made two of them. they are hand built from fine porcelain and high fired, so they are super sturdy. The wallet goes in the gaping maw and rings or keys on the tail or horns... have put one of them in the shop and maybe the next one up after the upcoming Renegade Craft fairs in LA and SF.

Flower Farm in Loomis, Ca!!

You can now check out my tamer ceramics at the Flower Farm Nursery in Loomis, just north of Sacramento in Ca. I have a few korean Teacups there and a yarn bowl or two. None too monstery to fit the area :)
This is a great little coffee shop, nursery, local artist's store and Bed and Breakfast. Enough stuff there? Yeah, I would say it is just about right. They make a mean iced mocha, too!

Aveedum Monster Twins

Hi, I'm Christine with Vidaliah Crafts and I'm new to the team. I like to make plushie monsters like the twins here. You can check out their friends at and Thanks for adding me to the team.

365 monsters/Skeletal Dropkick art swap...

So Mr. 365 and I thought maybe we should try an art swap here at the team. So to test it out, we swapped with each other, he painted one of my Ochibos and I made a ceramic zombie brush holder for him. It took a while for each of us to get off our butts and get our work done but the end result is so freaking cool, it was totally worth the wait. Here is the "Stompchibo" he painted for me:

So, Whoever wants to get involved in a trade, send a message to the group message board under the "Art Swap" posting. Get to it!!

I'm Katie and I'm new to the team. I make little "munsters" from polymer clay. They'd like to be scary, but the truth is - most of them are silly, bashful little guys.

My shop is located at

^ This is Xavier.
He's a mischievous little Munster. He likes switching the salt&pepper shakers whenever he enters a kitchen. He's a night owl and frequently stays up until sunrise doing crossword puzzles and watching the Golden Girls.

Let me know what you think of my shop!

I'm happy to have found the team :) Love everyone's work.

The poster version is also available, you can see it here is an A2 poster.If you are interested, please contact me.

All work and No play Make Jen a DOLL girl

HEHE! I have pretty much been working full-time getting ready for the KVAL fine arts festival in May. I am also a full-time stay at home mom and feel incredibly guilty taking all this time away from my kiddos. But it will all hopefullly be worth it. Being on one income is super tough for us. Living paycheck to paycheck is really depressing. So I am hoping that I will get some great new fans of my dollz at this art fest.

So anyhow, here are three of my newest creations. I call ThEm Francine, Bernie, and Ollie

Jed is dead

He thought his arm would do the trick so he ate it.
It only helped a little bit.

Vince is feeling really overwhelmed today.
He has a sinking feeling that someone is planing on stealing his beloved teddy bear, and the paranoia is starting to set in. Is it you is it you??

meet Vera
Vera is thinking about eating that fat little maggot over there...

whats your favorite food?

I looooveee Vietnamese food. I don't usually go out to eat Viet food because both of my parents are amazing cooks. :D Since I was a kid, I've been fed yummy authentic Vietnamese food and so my standard for Viet food is pretty high. Haha. There are a couple places in OC that I really like. There are a couple Viet places in SB too. They're not bad but I wouldn't eat there if I have other options. (Shhh!)

I love Pho, both beef and chicken. :D My idea of good Pho is that the broth has to be clear but still flavorful and the noodles are neither too hard nor too soft. Even Pho places at home tend to mess up one or the other so I usually just get my parents to cook it for me. :D I also like Com Tam from Thuan Kieu (on Brookhurst) and Mi Quang from Lien Hue (on Euclid). My mom makes amazing Bun Mam, but not many people can eat it though because, if you're not used to it, it's super stinky. Haha.

I go to K-BBQ places a lot but only because I love their condiments. :D <3 Cham Soot Gol.

If you get a chance to visit SB, I would suggest Duck Curry from Pattaya (Goleta) and Tostada & Quesadillas from Free Birds (IV). Haha. Those always hit the spot.

Ask me anything

Formspring's not worth it.

Funny that you asked because I recently had a convo with a friend about how much I actually like Formspring.

I think it's okay. It's not fancy but it's a cute idea.

Formspring isn't worth it though if people keep giving out short or one word answers. I mean, if I wanted your one word, I'd Facebook/IM you. Or if they give you statements instead of question. Sorry, but if you're not using it for its function, then it's obviously not worth it. :)

Ask me anything

ThEm Dollz- New dolls coming next week.

This week I worked on barbara the monster. I gave her a new style of eyes and a new nose. Let me know what you think of her. I used acrylic paint to stain her a light green tone and it also gave her a nice ring around her eyes. Her arms are different than I usually do. They are a bit patch-work. Check her out!

dissected monsters

I've been working on a series of dissected monsters and I'm delighted to tell you that some of them will be in the $50 Art Show at the Red Loft(in Downtown LA) this Saturday! I'll have around 8 pieces there, all full of monsterey goodness.

Here's a preview of some of the monsters...they'll end up on Etsy if they don't sell.

Farewell for now, monster lovers!
