Christmas Stuff And Others

I'm really happy with my jewelry and as you can see, I've made alot with it. Some studs, rings and more. Next week my second order with jewelry should arrive. Unfortunately some rings I've ordered removed from the program, so I removed them from the order. But that does not really matter. Then I will order some other next year.

Until now I've not make alot of christmassy stuff, but maybe I will make some in the next days. I wanted to make some small Santa Claus earrings or some snowmens. I will see.

I've sewn a lot

While I waited for my jewelry order, which arrived today (yay!), I sewed a bit. It was a lot of fun. It's something different if you sew by hand. I'm much more stressed when I'm sitting at the sewing machine, but by hand, it's easyer for me and without stress. ^ ^

Now that my jewelry arrived, I'll handle the next days with clay, but I will still sew. I've made a few new patterns for new small pockets and I have many ideas.
Once I have enough clay and jewelry, I will get more fabrics :)

Some New Stuff

In the last time I was really diligent, but just too lazy to upload my pictures. (^._.^)
My jewelry order nr. 1 go finally out and I've ordered me some new clay. This time I've ordered some  additional colors like rose quartz, ice crystal and jade. I'm very excited about how the clay will look when it baked. In my last post I said, that I don't know what I should make with shimmer and glitter colors, but now I've got some ideas.
I am really looking forward to my jewelry package, but I must wait a bit. Before 14.11. it will probably not be done, well.

Small Craft Update

Here are some more dolls and charms I've made in the last time.
Gradually, I have not many keychains, mobile phone straps and chains. I need new Fimo too and next month I will order me some new blocks.
I have noticed, that I have alot of Fimo blocks I've never used, but I don't really know what I should do with the glitter and metallic colors. I've bought them because I like the colors, but I don't thought about if I need these colors or what I can do with them. Maybe I'll use them for shimmering or glittering dresses.

Small Dolls

My previous dolls always become a bit too big and I think, they are even too big for necklaces. Pendants for necklaces can be a bit bigger, but it all depends on which pendant you will use. In my opinion especially dolls can look quick "too much" and cheap if they are too big, so I've made the last few days a lot of small dolls, which I find much nicer for both necklaces, as well for keychains and others.
It's hard work to make little dolls, but at the end the result is much better. I think it was good that I've been practicing on larger dolls, otherwise I could have done the little ones not so good.
Besides my dolls I try to find some good looking cake forms. In the future I want to make some
marble cake or something similar, but I've failed all the time. I need to practice.

In the next days I'll show you my other small dolls. :)

Different Doll Types #3

I was really diligent in the last few days and I've made some new dolls. Actually I want to finished my unfinished dolls, but I think I don't can make good looking dolls out of them. Maybe I will complete them when I find the motivation.
Well, so I've made these brand new dolls and I'm really happy with them. The faces are similar to the doll, which I have attached to a swing, but I didn't made the hole for the eyes. I think, I have found my own style. I like this type of dolls and I think I can make really good looking necklaces and keychains with them. I'm happy when my jewelry order comes. I will see, which necklaces I can make out of them.
The last days of course I've also made a cake and some donuts. I've also made a table. 
I thought, that I will try to make some little furniture for my pictures. So that they will look better. I must see if the building center in my near have some thin wood. Then I can make some cupboards if I do not fail. :)

Earring Designs

Early next month finally I will make my first (big) jewelry order. Of course I can wait no longer and have already modeled the first designs for my earrings.
When I order, I am always extremely impatient and want the stuff right after I bought it. ^ ^ To wait a week or longer, is horror for me and so I could hit the roof when the postman has no package for me. Waiting is definitely not my strength.

I think the motives for my ear studs are quite cute and they are a lot smaller than they look in the pictures. I like especially the cakes. I've been thinking the whole time, which little earrings motives I could make yet. Maybe a few small cupcakes? ^ ^
My Koala buns have become unfortunately bigger than I wanted. Well, they are just made ​​into rings.

Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes

I knew it would happen eventually. Now I'm in the cupcake fever too!
 It's not like I've never made cupcakes, but so far it has given me not the great pleasure. But now I would prefer to make permanently cupcakes.
Cupcakes come in so many variations, you have so much freedom and you can let your imagination run wild. Whether you simply make a normal cupcake with frosting and a few sprinkles or a cupcake in monster form for Halloween - you can do so many different things.
How you can see, I've finished a few cupcakes. There have been not many, but I'm pretty sure I'll make some more. Right now I will find some ideas and I hope that I can made them well.
Gradually we go on the autum and I tried to make a pumpkin. It looks pretty ridiculous, is it not true? I do not know why, but I think it looks more like a Christmas ornament
I also made a little cake, whose base should look like a pumpkin. Well, there is not much resemblance, but I think it's a pretty sweet cake.
 I am currently a bit unimaginative, but I try to make in the near future some autumnal things and maybe a few things for Halloween. I do not know why, but I'm really looking forward to Halloween, even though I probably will not do anything - like every year. ^ ^

Different Doll Types #2

I still have dozens of unfinished dolls around here and I don't have the motivation to finished them. I have the feeling that I will not get better in modeling dolls or chibis. I'm afraid to make my dolls hairs, clothes and faces, because I will not mess it.
Faces are the easiest thing. When my painted faces look bad, I will wash it away and paint a new one, but I don't know, all my faces look bad.
On the heads above I've experimented to model lips and noses and to paint eyes, but I don't made really great stuff. Drawing is not easy, especially with chunky and thicker acrylic paint. I will mix my colors with water in the future, so I can paint better.
So well, maybe my stuff will become better in the future. The doll in the middle don't look bad, even if the eyes and the mouth are a bit to high.
I've also made some other stuff - waffles, cookies and other food. The most stuff are lying unfinished around too. ^ ^

Second Place In The Competition

Some days ago I joined a competition. The theme was: Mythical Creatures.
I've been thinking about what I could do and my choice was a Kappa. Kappas are relatively unknown in this country, and so I was pretty sure that no one else has taken this character. Originally I wanted to make a mermaid, but I changed my mind.
Kappas are fictitious creatures of japanese mythology. Ask Wiki if you want to know more. ^ ^
 Anyway, I have with my Kappa (which is sitting with a fish on a stone in a lake) made ​​the second place. I share the second place with two other people.
I never believed that I'll get such a good rank because of all the other people who participated the competition.
The works of the others were so incredibly beautiful and I have doubted at my Kappa.
Now that the competition is over, I wonder now, what I should do with my Kappa. My friend said it looks like an ashtray .... oh well.

 Otherwise, I have done quite a lot of stuff in the last few days, but most of it is still unfinished. Right now I'm very unmotivated to finished my dolls, because I just do not really know, how I do the hair and I have a few unfinished cookies and cakes around here. Well, I need to see, that I finish things in the next few days.
