The excitement and joy of your Sun Catchers are
never ending! The magic they bring to our gardens bring smiles to our faces every day!

- Howard & Debbie


Just about everyone knows that Suncatchers make a great addition to your garden as they are colorful, glowing and mood enhancing throughout the entire year. But there is so much more Suncatcher’s are great for! One of our most popular photos features a Bluebird resting on a Suncatcher as it waits for the feeder to be free (photo credit to my husband!) Howard McCoy, a client who has lots of Suncatchers in his garden, recently started a new Facebook page called Backyard Birders of South Eastern PA (SEPA). He asked me to join his group and I sent him a few pictures I took with a Red Headed Woodpecker, Bluebirds, etc.. I did not realize that in the background was a Suncatcher. When Howard saw the pictures, the Suncatcher in the background inspired him and he strategically placed an entire installation behind his bird feeders.

Equipped with his camera, he went on a “hunt” to take pictures of his backyard birds. These are some of his beautiful pictures. The little colorful patches in the background are his installation of Suncatchers he enjoys and uses to enhance his photos!

Check out his Facebook page and if you have great pictures of your backyard birds, I am sure he would love to share your pic’s on his page: Backyard Birders of South Eastern PA (SEPA) We love when our customers get creative. We encourage you to share any of your Suncatcher photos or installations so we can feature them on our website and social media. Spring is our favorite time of the year and we are getting our garden ready. Like all of you, we look forward to welcoming the dramatic burst of flowers and colors. Enjoy your week and we look forward to hearing from you!


Every year, during our shows or events, we collect money to donate to animal shelters or to the wildlife centers. So many animals need help, so we try to select shelters which are honest, nice and supportive to animals.

So, from our “Holiday Open House” event we cash donations, food items, toys, soft clothes, cat litter etc. and will be providing a donation with a value of $300 to Lambertville's Animal Alliance of New Jersey! Animal Alliance is a 501(c)3, non-profit that rescues/rehabilitates shelter dogs and cats, placing hundreds into new homes each year. AA's Planned Pethood clinic provides low cost spay/neuter/vaccines to the public.

artYful would like to send a special THANK YOU to one of our customers JOHN B., who gave us a gracious money donation. This was such a sweet and beautiful gesture -- thanks John!!!!

And thanks to all of you who made this donation possible!

Being from Germany and growing up with heavy winters and lots of snow, I embrace living here in the States.

19 years ago, I escaped the cold and gray season in Europe. I was a skier, tried snowboarding, enjoyed hiking up the mountains in the winter and sledding down as well. The typical winter has beauty, but the days are short with longer periods of darkness. They are also primarily cold and gray -- without the wonderful garden colors that I truly enjoy.

Given my love of color throughout the seasons, I found that the Suncatchers were just perfect. I quickly discovered that they are a wonderful addition to your garden -- regardless of the season. However, to me, they have even more importance during the winter months as they become “therapeutical” and mood enhancing.

To go outside and see the Suncatcher's beautiful, bright, color during the normally gray winter months helped me to “cut those winter months short”. Suncatchers are “uplifting” and, like one of my clients says so well, “…they bring a smile to your face".

Today, I wake up to snow and sunshine. All is powdered and covered in a fluffy, white blanket of powder and it looks beautiful! And my Suncatchers have transformed into Snowcatchers. They each now carry a little white hat of snow and underneath, they display a glowing, bright, colorful rim.

It is such a peaceful and quiet scene outside. Some of my Suncatchers are bending down because of the heavy load of snow. With the help of the sun, the snowy hats will soon melt and the Suncatchers will straighten themselves showing an abundance of color again in the garden.

A tip to everyone who likes to shorten the bridge of these winter months to spring, don’t wait for the warmer weather to display your Suncatchers! The winter season is the ideal time to enjoy them and to experience their uplifting glow.

You will not regret it. Just watch for the magic that they bring combined with big smiles from all who see them!
