Handmade Whims

Welcome to my Handmade Creative Whims


If you are a creative person, you know how hard it is to just do ONE creative thing, right? I love dabbling in many creative endeavors and this page will feature some of the things I love to do other than create paintings. Each item is handmade by me with much love and attention. My handmade creative whims include everything from finished punchneedle, rugs, clay sculptures to framed silhouettes, jewelry & spun cotton ornaments.

The frame is painted black and grungy, art is covered with glass, the back is sealed with paper and comes with a saw-tooth hanger.

I bought a little pig staring at a butterfly today. It is a little gift for one of my daughters who kinds collects piggies. When I arrived home and looked at it more closely, I saw your name etched on it. That made the little pig even more precious. I wish it also had the date.

You are so kind. Thank you Pat. I have to share a story with you. A few years ago I was at the gift market in Atlanta GA doing a signing for Blossom Bucket to help promote the products. I was hand-signing and dating a pig figurine (not sure which figurine it was now as it was few years ago). Anyway, the only place to sign it was on it’s “back side”. I said “you know you’ve really made it when you are signing a pig’s butt”. lol! Thanks again for contacting me and blessings :)

How long will it be until we can start purchasing your beautiful jewelry? I purchased a wonderful orange poppy necklace from you about three or four years ago on stay and have very unfortunately misplaced it. Please let me know if you ever make another. I truly love all of your work and designs.

Thank you Heidi and sorry to hear you misplaced your necklace. I know exactly the necklace you had purchased. I am not sure when I will get back into creating jewelry. I just don’t have enough time in the day to do all the things I’d like to do. However, if and when I do make more, I will sell it through Etsy and/or this website. Thanks again,

I purchased a cute cat figurine at a garage sale last week and it had your name on it. It’s of two cats, one has a heart necklace and the other is standing with it’s paw resting on the reclined one’s back. Can you tell me when you did this piece?

I read your blog. You have some very useful information that I intend to pass onto my daughter who does pottery. She has an etsy shop, Corduroy Clay, and is trying to find ways to promote her artwork. I think your blog will give her some good ideas.

I als0 looked at your angel artwork. I love it!

Hi Carolyn,
Not sure exactly when Blossom Bucket came out with my cat figurine. I do know it’s been many years though.

Hope your daughter finds some of my information useful. That is my goal is to help. Blessings,

Hi Teresa…Just wondering if you sell your rug patterns as paper patterns only, rather than on linen or monk’s cloth.

Thanks for your time! Deb Day

Hi Deb.
Thanks for asking, but, no, I don’t sell just the paper pattern. This risk of copyright infringement is way too high by doing that. Thanks for checking with me though. I hope you understand my reason.

Hi Teresa:
I just saw a throw blanket that said “There’s no buddy like a snowbuddy”. Can I get one of them? I just love it & want to give it as a gift.

This fleece throw was for sale quite awhile ago and not sure that it’s still available. It was through Books Are Fun. Try searching on Ebay. I see some of my fleece blankets for sale there often. Search Teresa Kogut Fleece Blanket.
Good luck!
