Things About Me!
My name is Penny Ellen Adams and
have been creating art most of my life.
As you can see my initials are "PEA"
and my nickname is "Sweetpea."
I am a Grandmother of three, and a Great-Grandmother of two.
When I retired, I moved to a Senior Citizen Community and love it here!
My work space is by a large window overlooking the Root River
and a wooded area, where the deer bring there fawns to feed.
In the Winter the trees are gorgeous as the
snow hugs their branches, what a sight to behold!
I love Winter and God's nature.
As a child, I loved to draw, doodle and color. My teachers loved my art
and thought I was very creative. When I was in my third grade art class,
I made a dinosaur out of clay. My art teacher chose that piece to be
displayed at the school board of education. Little did I know back then,
that years later I would choose clay to be my major medium!
For years I painted folk art accessories and miniature watercolor portraits.
I created jewelry and all kinds of ornaments and babbles. In 1992 I was introduced
to polymer clay. My first design was my "Little Sweetpea" Angel and shortly after,
I created my "Blanket Babies," "Peas in a Pod" and "Photo" Keepsakes. To this day,
each of those designs remain as favorites. They are so loved by both the person who
purchases and by the person who received them as gifts for the special occasions of life
and as a comfort to those who are grieving the loss of a loved one or pet. I am always
grateful and in awe at the wonderful feedback I receive.
I specialize in personalized, hand sculpted Keepsake Ornaments for all occasions of life,
however, a large part of my business is creating memorial angels. My heart goes out to all the
families who suffer from the loss of a loved one or their beloved pets. I have been doing this
for over 25 years and it never gets easy for me to know that people are grieving, and it
never ceases to sadden my heart. Yet the feedback I receive assures me that they are
comforted by a tangible remembrance of their loved one. And that's what encourages me
to continue creating personal memorials and keeps me to continue to do what I do.
All of the Keepsakes I create are my original ideas and are totally
handcrafted in the USA by me. Each Keepsake is handmade from start to finish.
When you purchase from me, you are getting a piece that has spent quite
a bit of time in my hands and are made with a lot of care and love.
It's very satisfying in knowing others appreciate what I have created from
scratch with my own hands. It never stops bringing joy to my heart when
customers tell me how my keepsakes have touch someone's life.
For the past several years I have been creating my own line of "Snap-Pea" jewelry. At first,
I created "Snap-Pea's just for me, but when others saw them, they wanted to purchase,
and that began a whole new venue for me. I am so happy to be doing what I am doing. I feel
so incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love and benefit others at the same time.
I consider each one of my Keepsakes
"little pieces of art to be treasured for a lifetime."
