Hi everyone,

I thought I would have a short little after Christmas/New Year's sale at Night's Vision. Head on over to and use the code SAVE15 for 15% off any item in the shop from now through January 1st. Please share if you know someone who could benefit from this.

I hope everyone had Happy Holidays and that you all have some great plans for New Year's Eve. It will be a quiet one around here. Christmas was too. Sadly the Friday before Christmas my beautiful Aunt whom I've mentioned here several times had a massive stroke that she was unable to recover from. She passed at a hospice facility several days later. I was unable to be there. I will miss her greatly she has always been a source of creative inspiration for me and I haven't quite gotten all my thoughts in order about it yet. Keep your loved ones close and remember how precious each moment is.

<3 and best wishes for the coming year!

Recently Curated Treasuries

I've found that one of my favorite pass times these days is making Treasuries on Etsy. I love helping to promote other artists, AND I feel like i've gone shopping without spending a cent. Here are some recent ones featuring members of several different Etsy teams Night's Vision belongs to.

Etsy Dark Team



STATTEAM Challenge

The Labyrinth Team

I won the STATTEAM Challenge with this one! (changed from original state)

Whimsically Dark Art Team


Etsy Dark Team

Dark Calaveras Team

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them!

Treasuries I've Recently Been Featured In

I am so stoked by all the great Treasuries I've been included in on Etsy lately. Every Once in a while I want to make a post and share these with you.

More to come, along with Treasuries I've recently made.

New Dollies

I listed the three new dolls I was talking about the other day. They are soft dolls with painted faces rather than sculpted, but they still have the fabulous fiber hair of my other dolls this size. Taking photos is superfrustrating on these winter days when the sun is either only around for a very short time or not all. Not only that, but I'm still super careful with my back and I'm always paranoid bending over for close ups and such! Either way I think there are a few decent shots of these dolls.

The Green Man can be found HERE

The Seagoddes can be found HERE

The Pink Goddess can be found HERE

I have one more that I am working on. I really hope soon I can get back to sculpting and more detailed dolls. I still have to photograph my finished Geisha/Hanya and show you all!

This time of year I always feel as if time is flying by at warp speed. When you are someone like me who often finds themselves with a flipped sleep schedule, the shorter winter days become even shorter. It seems like I no sooner wake up then the sun is going down. The next thing I know I've stayed up until the sun begins to rise and and the whole cycle starts over again.

Despite all this I have been rather productive the last few weeks. I'm starting to feel normal again and don't have too many problems with sitting. Last week I listed these ACEO Prints on Etsy. Click on the picture to be taken to the listing.

I have also made a few new soft dolls. They have the body shape of my little way dolls, but the faces are painted rather than sculpted. Beside fabulous hair and some paint the bodies are unadorned. I should have a few listed tomorrow.
I hope everyone is enjoying the dawning of the Holiday Season.
