Happy Birthday Mr President...

OK, two things happened. First, I realized that I put Marilyn's mole on the wrong side, so I fixed that. Then, I thought she looked lonesome, so I made her a John Kennedy of her very own! Here he is with a tiny champagne glass being serenaded by Miss Monroe.

Lil' Red


Little Sakura:

A Rose For Emily:


Spirit in the bottle.

Here are more wine spirits in better detail. (I took the photos with my fancy new camera!)

The idea is, that every bottle has a different personality or spirit. That is why each of these are a little different.

Back detail:

Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand...

I just finished this little recycled doll project I've been working on.
Here are a few pictures of her.

This is just before I made her dress:

I call her, Tiny Dancer.

She is made of Polymer clay, a wine cork for her body and her dress is leftover wrapping paper that was sprayed and molded into a skirt and hat.

"Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand..."

In my head there are Wine Spirits and Robots...

I made some really fun stuff today. I love how they all turned out.

These are the Wine Bottle Spirits. I have been trying to find a crafty way to use the corks I've been collecting, and today I did! I LOVE these ladies so much. The photos do not do them justice. I'm very proud of them.

And then, do you remember this guy from a while back?

He was one of my favorites, so I remade this drawing in Sculpey:
Even the worm is smiling! Isn't he too cute?
And I made a tiny robot charm as well. Here is the whole gang together.
I wish I could get a better photo of the grape detail in their hair. It is really cool looking.
