The talented Madame Euphyley

I had one of my "Oh NAVI /facepalm" moments this week.

About September last year Euphyley had her baby and so she took some time off her blog, but she started doing some craft things!  They were GORGEOUS!  I instantly bought some and sent them to my friends for Christmas - they loved them.

One of the Christmas presents was a bit late...must be that international Christmas rush ....so I decided to give that person a different gift.  Then I thought I'd give it for their birthday - but I got something better for their birthday so I decided to keep the item. So I opened the box to get it out and what I found...

... was OMG there was something inside the box that had "For Navi" written on it in addition to the other gift item.  And it was this cute little treant!


I was thrilled, and then instantly MORTIFIED. Poor Euphy will think I am the ungrateful friend EVER - it's 5 months later and I hadn't even thanked her for this gift!!!

So I emailed a gushing letter full of thanks and apologies for my tardiness but she knew I hadn't opened the box as I hadn't said anything!  My little treant is sitting at my computer with me, and its just all types of awesome and I think what a brilliant talented friend I have!

Of course, I'm not the only one who thinks so.  In February this year, Euphy was interviewed by WoWInsider's Anne Stickney - you can read the article here.

Big bear butt also plugged her earlier this week!

But let her art speak for itself.  Here are some pieces which I find particularly special!


I've been adopted!
I'm sitting with Santa and a Norwegian Painted Horse now!
Not convinced?  Go check out Euphy's other artworks at her Deviant art page, or in her Etsy store. And yes, this time I put in my order for Christmas WAAAY in advance :D

  1. That stuff is AMAZING!! I love using clay but I've never been very good at it, but this makes me want to try again - for about half a second until I remember how bad I'll be at it. You lucky devil!
