{Works in Progress}

Below are some of the dollies I am working on for my shop. They will be a mixture of painted cloth and clay...I am having so much fun with these!

I also finished up my tree topper and made 4 dolls to put under the tree for the kids.

the blonde is for Ruth, the zombie is for Aaron, Doctor Who is for Sam and the brunette is for Myrna

{Christmas Tree Topper}

This is my newest project - a tree topper for our christmas tree...she isn't done yet and still needs hair, wings and to be stained but for now she has to wait until I find a good felting tool.

{Happy Thanksgiving!}

We celebrated Thanksgiving on Wednesday. It was impromptu and so much fun! One of the gaming groups William GM's came over and we enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving lunch/dinner and they headed up to William's room and played pathfinder while the kids ran off their energy outside.

I made pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie, rolls, turkey, sausage cranberry stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. I was a very busy gal for 2 days. I actually got everything done and done on time - which is a first for me and ya know what ? All our guests were late by more then an hour - but that's ok. Everyone had a nice meal and had fun playing a great game.

Towards the end of the night Sam and Aaron started fighting and as punishment I made them sit and hug eachother for ten minuets. Mind you Sam had no problem doing this unlike Aaron who threw a massive hissy the whole time - you would think I had him hugging a rabid badger or something.

Finally the kids were in bed asleep, the game was done and all went home and Myrna and William were sitting on the couch and next thing I knew Myrna was asleep in his arms and both he and I were pooped.

It really was a good day! Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving!

This is what greeted me when I put the turkey into the oven

After dinner they played some pathfinder

toby found some loves from both Tim & Chrissy

This is the dungeon that William created - well part of it

Aaron and Sam were being bad so as punishment they had to hug for 10 minuets - Aaron wasn't happy about that

So tired after a very Looooong Day!

{In progress}

I still have 2 more fairies to do to complete the six fairies that I am going to make to hang from the ceiling during Ruth's birthday party next month but I did get four somewhat done, (they still need hair, wings and tutus but they are painted and varnished).

I think with each new creation I get a little better and more comfortable with my work. I love to create art with photographs, watercolors, charcoal and many other art mediums but never had the time or desire to work in clay and now I am wondering why that is because this project has really pushed forth my creativity like nothing else has.

I am becoming more confidant in my clay work and I am relishing this new found freedom that the clay allows for.

I took the below images with my workhorse and will do more detailed images with my big girl camera once I have them completed.

This is the first "teacup" fairy I did

This is my 3rd "teacup"

This was my 2nd "teacup"

and this lovely is the 4th "teacup" I sculpted
