Ornaments

I am still busy creating things for christmas.  I finally have the first batch of ornaments I mail out finished and now I can move on to making christmas cards to go with them.  On another note, I made my first polymer clay cane this last weekend, and even though I made a few mistakes and know what to do better next time, the cane did work and I was just proud as I could be about it.  I can't show you how I used it yet, because it is part of a christmas swap, but I think I will be making more of them to try and get a bit more realistic.  What fun!  Here's some pictures of the first batch of christmas ornaments- I'll be MIA again for a bit while I do the cards :)

Oh my! The ornaments are wonderful!! What a lot of talent and time you have invested in them!!! I can't wait to see the cards that go with them. And the candy cane from polymer. Wow!

Kim said...

Thank you everyone! These have become a tradition for me- I started out with just six people I sent them to and now I have over 40! They are a labor of love and I don't think my christmas would be the same without making them :)

OMG!How long does it take to make all these Kim? it is extraordinary!
I cannot wait to see your cane!

Kim said...

Patricia- I work full time, so I can't devote full days to them- but I would say I work on them at night for about 2-3 weeks or so. Now I start special ornaments that I make where I put the faces of my nieces and nephews onto the ornament. This year they will be reindeers! I'll post one when I am finished if I can get permission from one of my siblings to show their child's face on my blog :)
