I am a little late posting a Mother's Day gift, but I wanted to be sure that mom got her gift before I put this up on my blog :) That would have ruined the fun!
I made this little chipboard album for my mom who adores her little doggie Susie. I guess since I live so far away from her, she had to have someone else in her life to cuddle and play with ;) Hahaha...here are the pics:
Another project I have been working on for myself is my "Fairy Garden". They are very popular, and I decided to make one in a pot I can keep inside. The pot is plastic and looks like an old cauldron. The "Fairy" house was made using a clay flowerpot. I glued rocks to it, then grouted it. Once the grout was dried, I added moss, and other plant bits. I added smaller gravel stones around the house to give it room between the house and the garden soil.
I made the fairy out of polymer clay. It took a long time to get her done. The rose in her hand was easy as I have made lots of polymer clay roses in the past. I had a dollhouse size glass of lemonaid that I placed in her hand shortly after baking her. I glued her to a log that Kaitlyn found for me, and added the plants. These are perennial succulents, and house plants. I am going to add a few more river rocks, however, the Fairy Garden is pretty well completed. Hopefully the cat won't think it is his litter-box!
Isn't this bracelet beautiful? I made a bunch of cupcakes and sliced strawberry cake charms with polymer clay. I used to make a lot of miniature stuff with polymer clay and one day whislt surfing away, I saw these cute charms made of food....you know the rest of the story!
I can't wait to show you the lemon meringue pie slices I made. They even have a lemon stuck in some whipped cream!
This bracelet is for sale, so if you know of someone having a birthday soon - let me know!
