Apparently, the old blog template screwed up and sent comments to moderation but I was never notified of them and didn't know they existed! I feel so bad! I don't even want to think about the number of you who thought I was just ignoring you!! I am soooooo sorry! It would take me forever to answer each of those comments now but I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who left comments and didn't get a response! I didn't know they were there!! UGH!!
Okay, okay...getting a grip... Just know that the problem is now solved and I do get your comments now. I'm sorry if you thought I was ignoring you, I would never do that!

I still need to paint the stuffed animals but here in this pic I was playing with some fur, trying it on him so to speak. I'll post another pic once I get the stuffed animals painted.. Back to it!
I have finished all of the sculpting on this doll and now I get to start painting and adding fur! I'm really liking how he's turning out and my hubby has said more than once that he wishes I wasn't giving him away. He instructed me to tell Kim that if she doesn't like him to return him and he'll pay the shipping.

I'm going to save the story behind him for when I have him finished but this is what I thought was under my bed when I was a kid!

Becca over at http://www.magikalseasons.blogspot.com/ gave me this blog award! Please stop by her blog and say hello. Thanks Becca!
So here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Copy the Logo and paste it to your blog.
3. Link to the person who gave you the award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself no one would really know.
5. Nominate 7 "Kreativ Bloggers".
6. Post links to the 7 blogs.
7. Leave a comment on each blog so they know you nominated them.
7 things about me:
1. I have the BEST kids on the planet!
2. I'm a night owl that rarely goes to bed before 2am.
3. I met the love of my life on the internet.
4. I love faeries.
5. I have the BEST husband on the planet!
6. My grandpa used to call me fancy pants when I was little because I had those panties that had ruffles all over the butt of them.
7. I have a warped sense of humor.
I now pass this award to the following 7 bloggers:
Today, my oldest daughter came home very excited because she sold one to her friend Kayla! You see, the girls get a 25% commission on each pin that they sell. You can just see the dollar signs flashing in their heads as they count how many pins I make and figure out what their take will be on the sales! My youngest daughter has a Claire's Boutique addiction and can't wait to sell some pins so she can buy some treasures at her favorite store.
If you'd like to purchase one of these silly little feel good pins, just drop me a note and I'll hook you up. They are made of polymer clay and have been sealed with a gloss varnish. Each one is initialed on the back and are available at rock bottom pricing! $4.00 each. The girls receive $1.00 for each pin that sells.
I just love finding ways to get them excited to earn money! I think it's so important that kids learn the value of a dollar earned. Otherwise, they take so much for granted. I love how their eyes light up when they hold that dollar in their hand after WORKING for it. Makes me so very proud and more importantly, it makes them proud of themselves.

This tiny skelly measures 2.75 inches tall and 1.2 inches wide. He is jointed with wire and hand painted in acrylics. He has a pin back so that you can wear him!! How cool is that, right?
He was hand-sculpted in polymer clay without the use of any molds. He is initialed and dated on the back and now available in the SHOP..

I made a few little goofy faces with offset eyes and silly expressions and then all of a sudden, I got this urge to do a gothic girl pin/brooch. So, I grabbed my clay tools and sculpted one up.
Here she is, "Emma", the Halloween Gothic Girl Brooch.
Emma measures 1.6 inches tall by 1.5 inches wide and is now available in the ETSY SHOP.

Now I'm a veteren auction participant! We have bought so much stuff there! I would have to say about 60% of what is in my studio at the moment is from auctions! Two art and crafts stores were liquidated and a florist (ribbon) in the past year and a half and I came home with a car full each time.
There is nothing like the high of buying about 60 tubes of artist watercolors new (marked $7.95 and up per tube) for 15 dollars! There were tons of beads that are perfect for mini making and paint, tons of paint, acrylics and watercolors, doll armatures and doll eyes, my goodness I'm getting excited all over again! lol
We didn't come home with everything we bid on, but I'm thrilled with what we did get. Some of it will be auctioned off on eBay because they're mulitples of things that I'll never be able to use in a lifetime.
I encourage all of you to investigate your area and see if you have an auction house near you which specializes in liquidation of police, school and store merchandise. It's a treasure hunt like no other!
