Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!!!!

Some old porcelain pieces I made...just practicing my collage and imaging in Picasa! So I thought I'd take the opportunity to change my pics and wish you all well for 2010! The top photo is of some porcelain pins I made and the bottom one is a mermaid I made for a shadow box. See you all next year!

Inspired by Jane DesRosier and Sandy Mastroni....

The doll pattern is based on a Jane DesRosier pattern and the hair, buttons and lace were inspired thanks to Sandy Mastroni! I love this doll and am going to make more. I am calling her Cute as a Button! I love how the stain came through with the darker edges and splotches! This was really fun to make, now for more!

More Sandy Mastroni treasures...

I have coveted this pillow for a long time! I just happened to ask Sandy if she sold it, I assumed she did. Thank goodness for me thinking of asking cause now I do own it! YAY! I just love this little face! Look at the wonderful card next to it...makes me think of Spring! Thank you again Sandy! Check out my blog list below and click it to get to Sandy's blog!

A few new projects completed...

I finished my Pod creature from Pattee's class at Odd-dolls.ning but it won't come through it is all blurry and I've tried three times! Ok one more before I publish post to see if it makes it! OK, it looks like this is the best I can get so far of my pod creature! (Santa I need a good camera with a great zoom!) The Pod class was fun, I haven't used polymer clay in a very long time and it has convinced me that I prefer earthenware clay and paperclay. Oh well, to each his own! Polymer for me is best used like this pod creature as little as possible! Just my! I will leave the polymer clay to the expert hands like Pattee at Odd-dolls! Check out Pattee's blog on my blog won't be disappointed! Thanks Pattee for a fun class!

The bottom picture is of the Little Miss Mollies from Jane DesRosier's tutorial at cloth and clay dolls. I really had a lot of fun making these. The funny thing is that I had some porcelain figures hanging near my front door since the late 1980"s and had this sort of similar pattern all along! So the one on the left is made using Jane's tutorial and the one on the right is made similarly to my hanging porcelain figures near my door.
