I am STILL settling into our new home and STILL trying to get my new office and pottery studio set up, so it has been a very slow start to the new year - but you can still adopt a Lil' Clay Dood or a Lil' Jar Dood in my Etsy shop by clicking here: CewellArtStuff

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram @cewell.art.stuff for sneak peeks, news and updates on what's to come.

The Origin of the Lil' Jar Doodz

Each Lil' Dood was once either a lumpy ball of clay or a lonley glass jar! Sadly the glass jars have had a rough life and are usually found just sitting and waiting outside the 'big blue bin' - while all their plastic and cardboard friends can be recycled with ease, many Lil' Doodz have been known to be given a home in a garbage can (and they deserve better!). While some forms of glass can be recycled many times, here in British Columbia, Canada, glass cannot be recycled through the convenience of a recycling bin at home... so many glass jars are lazily tossed out never to be recycled, thus filling our landfill. But here at CEWELL Art Stuff, each Lil' Dood has been given a new smile and a chance at happiness - a happiness that will surly be contagious enough to get you smiling, as well.

Designed with Cute in Mind

Lil' Doodz were originally designed sporting their signature smiles, strong brow, and adorable paws on a glass jar - but now, thanks to the flexibility that clay offers, Lil' Clay Doodz come in all sorts of shapes and sizes!

Now you can wake up in the morning drinking your favourite coffee with your favourite Lil' Clay Doodz Mug; you can show off your prized succulents on the windowsill with your Lil' Clay Doodz Planter; and you can... well, think of anything houseware-related and we may just slap a Lil' Doodz' face on it!

We love all seasons, holidays and special events - and we love thinking up new adorables ways to help you celebrate! So just know, there will always be Lil' Doodz to choose from and bring home!

Digital Download Lil' Doodz

Your loveable 3d friends are also made available as downloadable colouring pages and prints -  and not to mention at an affordable cost (plus you get to save on shipping by downloading and printing them at home yourself)! The digital Lil' Doodz will never be sold out and will always be there if you need to take some time for you, smile and colour.

And if you want to save some trees and are not interested in printing, we also offer Digital Lil' Doodz downloadable wallpaper for your desktop, laptop, and cellphone home screen!

Whether you want to hang a smile or upload a smile, we got you covered... in cuteness!

This was one of the most pleasant and lovely purchases I have ever made on this site! Caitlin was communicative from the very beginning, patiently answering all of my questions about the size of the Lil’ Dood, the sturdiness, and just being an all-around lovely human. 🥰 I can’t believe to describe how happy this Lil’ Dood makes me! I literally have been looking at them on my desk at work and smiling like a ninny. They’re colorful, adorable, and HUGE. Perfect for all of my pens, pencils, and scissors! You can tell how much love Caitlin put into them. If you’re looking for a wonderful mug or pen holder, I highly recommend this shop and Caitlin’s work!

I am over the moon with my new Lil’ Dood! Caitlin was the sweetest and super communicative throughout his journey to me. Even though this was considered a B-grade, you really can’t tell at all. I think everyone should have a Lil’ Dood to brighten up their desk!

I’m so happy with my lil dood and I will be purchasing more in the future! Caitlin is such a darling and goes all out on every single lil dood. You will not be disappointed. She packages them so carefully and even makes beautiful tissue flowers when you open the box it’s like opening a present on your birthday. Please support this wonderful small business you will not be disappointed. 10/10

My lil doodz are hands down some of my favorite babies to date. They are SO well made , so precious and adorable and the sizes are just perfect for brushes, stationary, etc. The seller is an absolute sweetheart & shipping was so fast!!
