Mixing the Right Blend!


, , ,

Hey All,

Look who’s making a special order. This girl, yup that right me! I was starting to doubt I would ever get a request. I had extra ornaments Gesso ready to go when I reopened my Etsy account.  And that was way back in September. So after months of waiting I finally got one. I’m super exited!

If any of you remember my original Kirby from 2012, his back with a vengeance! Yes crafters his is my new work of art I am doing. I had to prep my colors to get that beautiful hue which my husband masterfully calls Pepto-Bismol pink. (Hummm… Crayola really needs to make that color)

After trial and error with Apple Barrel Diva Pink and Craft Smart light pink or Rose Clair. I like Rose Clair better it sounds fancy, I found that perfect blend.

Which you can see from the photo below this Kirby needs a few more coats to give it that strong yet huggable look.


I am on a deadline and nothing is wavering me from getting the job done right the first time.

A Gift for My Sister

Hello All,

Well I had hope to sell Mrs. Potts on Etsy but my sister loved her so much that I gave it to her for her birthday. How could I say no to my baby sister? Ah well I wish I could have taken better pictures but I was trying to hurry and wrap it up for her.

Snorlax Figurine Display on Wooden Plake

Hello All,

Well after much thought I have officially put Snorlax on the market. If you want to pick up this one-of-a-kind hand-sculpted figurine of Snorlax it’s a perfect addition to any Pokemon lover’s collection! This is a display figurine, it is not an ornament to be hanged. He has been carefully hand painted with acrylic paint, and sealed with a glossy finish. Snorlax is mounted onto a 4 inch wooden base that has also been lightly glazed in wood stain varnish. He measures approximately 4 inches tall.

If you want to pick it up this up you can find it here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/211230631/snorlax-figurine-display-on-wooden-plake?ref=shop_home_feat_4

Review on Sculpey Art Doll Faces

Sculpey Art Doll Faces


Before using this product read all the instructions so you get the most out of this product. That being said here is a tip that is NOT listed on the instruction. Do NOT leave clay in this mold overnight. I have not tried it with the Air Dry Clay. So I can’t confirm that portion.

I don’t know why this happened however, I left small pieces of Sculpey III on the mold overnight and it ward and ate at the mold.  Other than that I didn’t see anything wrong with this product. The instruction do say it freezer safe which is it, but if you want to release your mold without having to put it in your refrigerator. Just a dab of corn starch or flower will get that clay out.

Mock Stamp’in Up “Boxes of Sweets (candy boxes)”


, , ,

Hello All,

Well it’s update time again. I know I have been MIA for a bit hay I got two kids to teach, a husband to help, and a business that I am starting to get off the ground. So I’ve been a little busy however, not too busy to let you guys know where you can find free templates to your favorite crafts.

Why? Well when I first started crafting I didn’t have much of anything. I didn’t know how to make things that I saw, what kind of tools or papers I needed. Most of what I saw were in magazines or books and believe me DIY magazines/books don’t come cheap. But they were helpful with templates and tips they provided. Nonetheless some of the instructions where not always 100% clear. So when YouTube pop up and all sort of people started showing their own DIY projects it made it easier visually. And this is just my way to give back.

So the first box I found comes from Silk and Leather Love – DIY Faison: http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/f9/4f/87/f94f872f26de139faf918d1e9150b9d7.jpg

This second one is from Master Class (Russia): http://master-klass.livejournal.com/355980.html#cutid1
If you do not have Chrome translator I have taken the liberty of cutting and pasting what it says in (English) I have put it right here below.

Boxes of sweets (candy boxes)

If you have a holiday and are inviting guests, they usually come to you with gifts :) but imagine how your friends will be delighted, if you prepare for each small box with their name to your brand cookies or cake box! They will be delighted!


You will need:

1 Two types of colored card stock
2. Pattern Paper
3. Scissors
4. Craft Knife
5. String or Ribbon
6. Label
7. Tape

To start Print pattern  (See below.) To the desired size and print it on plain paper. Cut form boxes and place on a sheet of colored card stock. Carefully draw out a simple pencil edge pattern. Cut with scissors, and thin slits (zip) using stencil knife and a ruler. Fold the resulting “petals” on the lines indicated on the pattern dotted line. From another card stock cutout the tag. It can be any shape. I used a shaped punch, but you can do with scissors. On the label, you can write the name of the guest, the desire or the name of the cookie that will lie inside the box. Fix the tag on one of the “petals” boxes with glue and decorate a small bow of ribbon. ‘re baking cookies, pack them and invite guests.

Hello All,

As some of you know I have added a few items to my Etsy shop. If you haven’t stop recently at www.etsy.com/shop/UniqueDesignbyMonica here is what you’re missing.

Etsy has been reopen!

Hello All,

Well I finally did it! I’m on Etsy…. again. After the debacle on Storenvy in 2013 I just thought it best to sell what I have on Etsy. I trust it and even though it has fees up the wazoo I can deal with them. Since Etsy does give me a lot of perks like support and helpful tutorials I do not hate that much.

So check me out at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/UniqueDesignbyMonica
