I love looking at magazines and cutting out art that inspires me and applying the design on my sculptures. Here's how a recent project turned out with my color choices of lemongrass yellow, hot pink, orange and white flowers...hope it inspires you!

Hello blogging world. Over the past six months we have come across many belly casters and photographers using our photos for their personal use to drive more business to their sites and some claiming our work as their own. With that said, we would appreciate that you do not copy our photos for your personal Facebook, website or blog use. If you would like to share our work or any other artist's work, please make sure to ask permission and include a link to our sites. We work hard at what we do and we each have a unique style so please be considerate and ask first! Thank you and keep on casting!

A new mom saw this style of tush casting and wanted it for her nursery. She loves to garden and wants to carry the theme in her daughter's nursery. The little watering can says "Baby's Garden" and we can add your child's name or birthday.

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from a desperate client who had just lost her son at 24 weeks but most of all the sadness that her son's keepsake was cracking that the hospital had presented to her. She had planned on calling me for a belly cast but when she noticed the damaged plaque, she called to see if I could help. When she brought it over, I told her I could recast it with a more durable product and she was so grateful. I made several copies and made her an ornament for them as well. She will keep the original and I'm receiving a new box from the hospital to display her new plaque and she'll have an ornament to hang in their home and on their Christmas tree when the time comes. I feel so blessed to have helped this grieving family and especially preserving CJ's memory.

Here you go boyfriend! I love casting lips, especially when there's a good outline and you can almost see her teeth if you look close enough! This customer wanted her boyfriend to have a keepsake of her and then she decided she wanted one for herself for her frig, plus, she wanted them painted pink, her favorite color.
If you live in the Phoenix, AZ area and want a cute and simple keepsake or looking for a great gift idea, come and have your lips casts, it only takes 5 minutes and such a deal at $35.00 for an ever lasting keepsake!

This new mommy had me faux finish her belly cast to match her daughter's nursery. This baby's nursery is so bright and cheery that you can't help but smile when you walk in. When I created the baby bum casting, she had me embellish it with flowers to match the belly cast and it turned out perfect!
If you are expecting and would like a beautiful keepsake that will last for generations in your home, please email or call us, you'll be happy you did! We also transform belly casts made from a kit.

Sometimes my job brings me the most incredible women and this is one of them. She is a nurse in Northern California and during a regular checkup, she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Her husband reached out to me and asked if I could cast her before her surgery...of course the answer was yes. My artist in Sacramento did the original cast in plaster gauze and mailed it to me to be preserved and completed in a smooth finish for our client. Our client was unfortunate to loose her left breast but very fortunate to survive her battle with cancer. She is doing great, is back to nursing and is enjoying every day of health!

How cute are these two little bum keepsakes! I just love casting newborns and creating a beautiful and fun sculpture for the nursery. I like to cast within one week of age, this way, they sleep through the entire process and makes it so much easier for mom, dad and baby. If you live in the Phoenix area and are wanting a cute keepsake of your little one, please email or call us, we're always here to help!
