Halloween is Coming!!

Hi everybody, I hope that blog world is doing great.  I just wanted to show everyone what I have been doing lately.  Here I made a Pumpkin candy container.  Mr. Pumpkin Face is made out of polymer clay and baked, sanded and painted with acrylic paints and sealed.

Here is the back of Mr. Pumpkin Face.

My second creation is my first jointed doll.  I know blog world has been doing alot of Alice in Wonderland pieces lately.  I just had to do my rendition next.  Here is Alice!!  She is made out of air dry clay and so is Cheshire Cat.  I sanded and then painted them with acrylic paints and sealed and signed.  I made the toadstool out of polymer clay and baked.  It is also painted with acrylic paints too. 

 Her dress is made of cloth and painted and sanded too.
 Look at what came in the mail for me.  I found this wonderful book on Amazon for only 13 dollars.  I have been doing alot of research lately on Halloween vintage decorations.  This book is Halloween in America by Stuart Schneider.
I got this book to give me inspiration for my new creations and also I would love to start collecting these wonderful creations for myself.

Please let me know what you think about my new creations, I just made.  I would love to have suggestions or comments on how to improve, change, or ideas for my future creations.

My New Creations

Hi everybody, I know it has been a long time. I just wanted to share with you some of the dolls I have made.
Here at the top is Jackie.  He is made out of polymer clay and I sewed his clothes.  I have alot to improve but I think he is really cute.

Here is a up close picture of Jackie.  Look closely  and see his arms and hands are made of the vines he was grown from.  He is ready for Halloween and he loves to eat lots of candies and scare the local teenagers.  He wouldn't dare scare a little child.  He just gives them candy and hugs!

This next creation is a white tail deer.  He is made with air dry clay.  This was the first time I have used this medium.  I really like how he turned out. I went and bought some more air dry clay too.  His name is Bucky.  His horns have not come in yet but he doesn't care.  He is just happy laying in the sun. 

My Dad saw Bucky and had to have him.  So Bucky will have a loving home with my parents.  With that said, I have 2 new creations that I am working on.  As soon as I finish I will post my pics.  Any feedback would be awesome.  Let me know what you think.  I know I have alot to improve on, before I start selling my creations.  If you have any suggestions that would be great too.

A Frosty Winter In Our Neck Of The Woods

Lately we  have been hammered by these winter storms.  Hey I am not complaining at all cause I love snow so much.  We even had a white Christmas this year.  We live right on the North Carolina border with Virginia.  My husband is from Colorado so he has seen plenty of snow.  We haven't had this much snow since I was a little girl and it snowed almost 2 feet.  Even as I am writing this we are getting snow.

    Here is Abi making a turtle.  She has such a wonderful imagination!

Joey made a cool snowman. 

I have been in the making mood lately.  I drew up some sketches of some polymer clay dolls I want to make.  Sorry they aren't more clearer but I drew them up with a pencil and they are not very dark.

Here is another sketch of some creepy dolls except for my valentine bird.  He just plain cute.

Like Mother Like Daughter.  Abi wanted to sketch like Mommy so she drew a vampire.  She is just like her mother.  I really love how his fangs are so big and he is sticking out his tongue.

Last but not least, I made a Turtle from one of Wee Wonderfuls Pattern Cards.  He is made out of felt and hand stitched.  Abi had to sleep with him last night. 

He is a top view of him.  I really like how he turned out.

And finally here is his side view.  She does have some wonderful patterns on her site and blog.  Go and check them out.  I promise you won't be dissappointed.  Until next time!
