Wow- life is keeping me hopping right now! We are very busy at work- lots of good changes coming up. Between work, keeping the house tidy and the gardens I am not getting lots done in the crafts department. I have been managing to sneak only small pockets of time here and there. Remember Pedro- my naked doll? His Niche is all painted and ready for him to occupy.
Since I don't have much to show you that I have been working on.......let's look at some new goodies I bought for the Candy House! Christine from http://dandelionfair.blogspot.com/ sells the cutest little crocheted animals. Here are 2 that I recently purchased from her etsy store- a little mouse and a cookie monster! They are so tiny--I took one picture with my thumb in for scale. Amelie is in love with them- they are perfect for her play room- thank you so much Christine!!!! You can find Christine's etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/DandelionFair
While I have been so busy I missed the very last Creativity Challenge from June at http://acreativedreamer.blogspot.com/2011/06/final-big-reveal.html and I was pretty bummed to have missed it. The theme this time was Artist's Choice and this would have been my entry. I worked on this piece for at least 2 or 3 years and it's one of my favorite creations. These panels are polymer clay tiles in a mosiac. Each tile was hand cut and carved by me and then handpainted. The little niches/houses hold polymer clay prayer boxes and I can add more prayers to the piece until the niches are full. I was so proud when I finished these- mostly for sticking with a project this size and not quitting :) Thank you June for holding the Creativity Challenges- I will really miss them!
