It seems that I have caught a case of the rabbits...Like bunnies will do, I made one and have since found myself surrounded by a couple more overnight. I have a feeling there will be more than 3 by week's end. So, for now, here are the next pair...Enjoy!

It seems as though I'm stuck in the Halloween mood for the moment, and I have to admit that it's rather fun!! Here are a couple more creations from this past weekend....'Topple' and 'A Little Batty'. Enjoy!!

So it's mid-March and I'm already in a Halloween mood. Here are some more of my 'going bigger' experiments, a ghost, mummy, and a witch. I think that I'm really starting to like making these larger scale (at least for me) figures, so who knows where this might go, but for now, enjoy!

I've gone and super-sized my pumpkins - or at least one for now. This new guy is just a tad under 4" - not all that large, but when I look back and see that when I first started making anything out of clay (pumpkins were first), they were only about a half of an inch in height, this guy is super-sized. It was kinda nice to work on a slightly larger scale, I can get a little more detail added in. I think that he turned out fairly well for my first attempt at going large, but you be the judge...
Here are a few pics along the way and then the finals. Enjoy!
Ok, so I've been a sucky at getting any sort of regular posting going on with this here blog thingy...no promises that I'll get any better, but I'll try.
Wanted to post some pics of this past weekend's craft show - not really a big, deal, but it was my first 'official' craft show, meaning the first that I had to shell out money for a booth.
For my first official show, it didn't go all that badly. It was at my old high school and seemed to be more of a flea market than an actual craft show comprised of hand made crafts. (Lesson #1 learned: going forward, only apply for booths that require crafters only.) Most of the people really seemed to like my stuff as I received more compliments than money - which was nice for my confidence if not my wallet. I thought that I had had some sure fire sellers. I came home with just about all of those sure fire sellers - thanks to my family, I didn't have to come home with all of them (Lesson #2 learned: I really have no idea what is going to sell, and what isn't.).
I did receive some applications for some upcoming crafters only shows, so I feel like I'm at least getting my foot in the crafting door. I have a couple more shows lined up for this upcoming fall, and I'm already looking forward to those as I can let my inner-Halloween run rampant.
Ok, enough babble, here's the pics...and a special thank you to my Aunt Barb, who was kind enough to spend the entire day booth sitting with me!!
