making stuff



So, as usual, I've been busying myself with a bunch of craft projects and I wanted to share a few photos of what I've been doing. Most of these are works in progress.



This is the start of a top secret project that I will be sharing later next month. You'd think making a small pinch pot out of polymer clay would be no big deal but getting the surface even and smooth is a challenge! 



I made this tiny polymer clay skull for no reason in particular. After a coat or two of white paint he'll be a cute halloween accent on one of our bookshelves. 



I also made a few tiny polymer pumpkins that are about the same size as the skull above. I've got five of them made so far and I have plans for more. I love these!



I've been playing around with paper mache too. I've wanted to make a small deer head for soooooooooooooo long. I'm talking years and years. I finally started a few weeks ago. I can't wait until it's done!



This colorful piece will one day be a pillow cover. It kind of reminds me of these painted chevron candle holders I painted awhile ago.   

Oh! I finally finished one of the crochet flags I've been working on! One down, one to go.

What kind of things have you been working on??

  3. There's so much to love in this post! Chevron awesomeness, a cute little skull, excellent looking pumpkins ~ and I can't wait to see the finished deer head! Major props. When I see the colorful cardboard ones online/in little boutiques, I love them & want to buy them, but... I always think 'I could probably make that'. (It might take me years to actually get around to making said things, but nevertheless!) ^-^ Good stuff ~

    1. Thanks! I wish I could just focus on one project until it's done but when I think of something I want to make I can't stop myself! I've got a zillion half made things all over the place. And I just started a new crochet project. Literally! Oh well. And I can't believe it took me so long to start that deer. I have sketches of what I was going to do in my college notebooks... from 2008! Back then I thought I was clever and now they're everywhere! You should make one! It's a lot of fun!!
