Update on my first clay creation...

She now has a finished face and hair! I have named her Baynshee and have added gothy stitches to her mouth. Her name came about as she screams like a banshee to be loved and understood for who she is but no one seems to be listening.

I am listening sweet Baynshee, oh yes my darling I am....

She will be my first creation for my "Soo... im Different Dolls"
I will post more pics as I go.

To Clay...or Not to Clay...

I am being brave *big sigh*
I decided to show you my first attempt at clay. Yes, yes,.... I know I have a long ways to go, but perhaps if I stick at it I will get there!

I had no clue as to what I was doing but I have to admit it was fun after I got over the frustration of not being able to master my first attempt lol. In all honesty my main goal finally became to try my best not to mess up those beautiful hand blown eyes.

The head you see above has no idea what kind of body she will be stuck onto, maybe that's why she looks a tad bit less then happy? I think I am heading in a gothy creepy yet cute direction.

What do you think?

I want ice cream...what?... but it's cold outside!

Well it's all her fault, really it is! I was just doing fine until she insisted on having an ice cream cone, now I want one.
I thought it was about time that I posted a little about what I have been working on.

Above is Letti the baby yeti and she just loves ice cream. I suppose a yeti wouldn't be cold eating one in the middle of winter?
I have been cracking up and having a ball while working on Letti. She is just the cutest mess with ice cream all around her mouth. Her ice cream cone has a magnet in it that will stick to the one in her hand. Oh and it's also a pin cushion, how wicked cool is that?

In my world a yeti must have horns so I gave my first try at them. I'm super happy with the way they came out and I have to say Letti is too. Of course she's yelling to be finished all together so I should get to hustling I suppose....

I am also working on this funny guy. Isn't he a trip? I have noooo idea what part of my mind he popped out of but I have been convinced to finish him. He is going to be all steampunked out which will be a totally new area for me as far as soft sculpture goes. I am so excited to give it a try. Think steampunk with super long legs and arms.... 

Last but not least I have FINALLY introduced a mini Baby Giant line. These little stinkers stand at only approx. 7 inches tall and sit at only approx. 5 inches. They are fully jointed just like the original BGs and I will either be making all of their outfits or will put in orders for Michele Byars at Hopelessly Hooked to crochet their outfits.

Wishing you a beautiful day full of blessings!
