3 Am Art Productions on Etsy dot com

This is my puffy white clouds photo. I took this this past summer, at the beach. I have it for sale at This is my etsy shop where I sell photography online. I'm in love in with etsy. The ease of selling & shopping is combined. Best of all all the items are handmade or vintage. If you can't find something on etsy I would be shocked. It's so jam packed with sellers and buyers, it's amazing! There is literally tons of stuff. So far in my purchasing side, I have yet to find a person with negative feedback. All these people seem to be wonderful and helpful and they CARE. I'm in several (three) etsy street teams. These are all folks with a common goal or idea who support one another by getting the word out about the team & the members. EFA Etsy for animals is the first team I joined. Vegan etsy team was next. Then Etsyveg..I help all three teams in various ways.

To search on etsy for these teams items: EFA = 'Efateam'
Etsy Veg = 'Etsyveg team'
Vegan etsy = 'Veganetsy team'

Need help? Just convo me, I will be happy to help. I'm at

See you there, Heather 'aktie9' :)

Union Station Celing in Worcester, Massachusetts

lellow, originally uploaded by Aktie9.

Stained glass ceiling.. in a city that has a ton of snow every winter.... interesting idea. Altho these are on a downward slope.. would just make me nervous in a house. Glad to know it's not my problem. ;)

Gorgeous building of marble and stone, that has totally been revamped. I'm planning on going again, taking some more in depth shots. This was back when I first got my camera and was still learning how to use it.

Castle in the Sky

This is my photograph of the Olde Stone Church in West Boylston, Massachusetts.
I call it Castle in the Sky, since it looks like a Castle in this shot. It's not
actually a Castle. It's a simple dirt floored Church, that overlooks a resevoir. It's a very old one too. Sometime around the 1800's IIRC it was built. You can read more on it at wikipedia.

Enjoy! ---Heather 'aktie9' :)

Pretty Punchy Polymer Pin!

This is a pin I handmade. It's made from polymer clay, pressed into a mold, cut out, baked,cooled then sanded. Then I choose ink colours for them rebake them and let cool and harden.

Once the ink sets up, I glaze it with enamel paint. Then I add enamel glitter paint and a one final clearcoating of glaze and let air dry overnight.

These are small pins around 1-4 inches usually. This is 1 inch x 1 inch. For the small size they do pack a lot of punch & pop up a sweater or blazer lapel. These are my original designs and each one is just a little different than the last one. There is no recreating a purchased design exactly. I quite like this fact. As I'm something of an original, myself.

hydrangea collide

hydrangea collide edit2, originally uploaded by Aktie9.

This is my hydrangea collide picture. It was a regular photo of a hydrangea plant of mine up close. Then I pulled into a program on the computer and using collide tool, I switched it all around, and edited it some.. Now it's a nifty piece of digital artistry. I love doing this sort of thing to photos, and artwork. It's a lot of fun.

Enjoy! Heather 'aktie9' ----is my website where it's for sale. Thanks!
