Hey y'all! I have and haven't been around much here lately...I read all of your posts but just can 't see to get up the energy to post my own. Mother Nature has been having a field day with me lately...she seems to think that I need her to not just visit but STAY!!! ARGH!!!! Finally got in to see a Dr about trying to get her to go away *she's been here for 4 weeks now.) They are rather baffled and I am having a bunch of tests done. Good news is I'm not pregnant, I'm not anemic and I don't have any thyroid issues. Bad news is they are still confused!
BUT....this has been really affecting my motivation, which is bad as I have about a bazillion things that I should be doing as well as things I want to do...I just can't get up the motivation to do them! :-( Hopefully things will change for the better soon.
As far as my claying and mni-ing...well there hasn't been too much going on...although I did make a mold to make chocolate truffles...and have made both white and milk chocolates. I have my dark chocolate all mixed up and ready to go too. I am about a 1/3 of the way done with painting the 2nd green, pink and white chair...I have decided that after I finish the green they WILL be getting a darker pink...this one is just too pale.
I got inspired today and have a rather ambitious (atleast for me) project planned for a swap in one of my yahoo groups. There are only 3 of use...so I should be okay...but if they turn out looking good I hope to make a few to put into my etsy shop.
I also bought a huge box of pre-made canes from a gal in another group...there are flowers and gorgeous kaleidoscope canes galore! I would like to try making some wall art or possible small table tops from them. I'd like to try dishes too, but I have to ponder the best way to do that first.
I also worked up a little tutorial on making hard candies...once I get it uploaded to my flickr I'll share that too!
OOOOH got a question for you gals...our PX (post exchange) had these Melissa and Doug dining room accessory packs...they say they are 1:12th scale, although to me some bits seem a bit too big. BUT it was $17....I bought one...do you think it was worth it?
