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.
