Oh Baby!

For Mothers day I requested a peaceful, uninterrupted day in my studio, chocolate and a fondue dinner. So far it has been a wonderful day.

I could have finished the dolls for the Somerset submission or started on the rainy day figurines. I could have vacuumed and organized the ribbon drawers or did the drawings for the new buttons.

Instead I decided to learn something totally new. I had a box of Super Sculpey that has been sitting in drawer waiting to be brought to life. Today was it's lucky day, it became a tiny baby. This is my first attempt but true to my nature it will not be my last. My neighbor stopped in fell in love and has pre-ordered one, then a really good friend of mine stopped by for some silver clay and thought it was kinda creepy. I love it, what fun, I think it must give you an oxytocin rush.

Thank you Cheimarie for the lesson!

The baby is so cute!! It brought a huge smile to face and tears (not sobbing tears) to my eyes. It just transported me back to when my three boys were babies. It is so adorable. You did a great job.
