Back in the Swing of Things!

Well it has been a long time… I see from my last post I hadn’t done anything since July 24, 2013. Wow I tell you, times flies when you have a baby. My little baby girl was born on October 23 and was a healthy 6 lb 6 oz. Now she is a chunky 12 lb 10 0z, it that good mommy milk she’s getting.

Well enough with the baby talk and on to the craftiness! As most of you know being Prego made me super sick so it wasn’t after my little girl’s arrival that I was able to really go back in my craft room. I tell you there were un-human smells coming out of my craft room that only pregnant women could smell. Now that I am somewhat normal I don’t have that problem, and I was able to create these beautiful ornaments for my husband’s co-works.

Pretty nice huh? I wouldn’t have made these ornaments if it wasn’t for my husband taking his personal ornaments to work that I had made in 2012. They were prototypes of King Boo, Ba-Bomb, and Spiny. Even though they were prototypes they were still very well made but I didn’t feel they were sell-able. He displayed them proudly on his desk and before I know it I had orders to make the lovely creatures you see above.

And I am still getting orders. I recently finished a Kirby Fighter ornament that turn out pretty nice. If I make at least 5 to 8 of each item I posted above, I just might go back to Etsy to sell them.

 

 

Ornament Transformation – King Boo

King Boo (Japanese: キングテレサ King Teresa) is the leader of the Boos and the main antagonist of the game Luigi’s Mansion, where he first appears to be Luigi’s nemesis. He is also an ally of Bowser, who has aided him in his various schemes. He is more than capable of devising and enacting villainous plans by himself, including his capture and imprisonment of Mario. Although not the biggest Boo in the Mushroom World, King Boo has abilities that far surpass that of the average ghost, and he wields a number of impressive magical abilities, including the ability to materialize objects. King Boo’s magical power is directly proportional to the number of Boos in his vicinity.

 Yeah, that way too much info for a polymer clay and glass ornament. lol

Ornament Transformation – Bob-omb and Spiny

Hello All,

I’m taking a small break from making Halloween themed items and moved on to transformations. I wanted to use something I already have and transform it into something else. Now this project I’ve been working on for a few days. What with painting, sculpting, heating, gluing, glazing, and of course letting it all dry in-between. If you don’t have the temperament to wait this is not the project for you. However, if you do have the ornaments to follow along get your materials ready. Meanwhile you get yourself prepared just know this took me a while. So with that being said again I’m going to be demoing piece by piece on YouTube it will save me a lot of typing in the end. So stay tune in for an update.

  • Ornaments (they can be one you already have as long as they don’t have embellishments they need to be smooth)

  • Paint – White, Yellow, Black, and Sliver
  • Gesso – White

Cat Toys for Max

Hello There,

Well some of you may be wondering why I haven’t posted in a while? Well I recently moved and the process was very time consuming. But that doesn’t mean I was slacking off while I moved boxes back and forth, duck taping myself in to a tizzy, and un-mounting my magnificent moments  off the walls.

No sir! I kept my hands busy while I had some down time, thinking about various members of my family. So I thought of our 18 year old cat Max, since he was having the hardest time with the transition. To cheer him up I made him a few cat toys to ease his old nerves and keep him somewhat happy while we moved stuff around. All templates will be posted up later once I have my main crafting computer up and running.
