Steampunk Broom

 Happy New Year's Eve! As some of you may know, I won Victoria's giveaway! Let me share with you:
Ta-da! Not a very good picture I know, still haven't gotten a light box.

Victoria's version would look something like this. Go to her etsy shop and check out all the "dark side" art!

More oysters

I made more oysters as I was sold out...I am sick of making these and this will be the last batch I make for a very very long time. It took me 3 days to complete!

I won a giveaway!! I will update you with pictures when I get the wonderful prize :)

Candy Cane and Cookies

After watching people make candy cane on tv, I decided to use their method with polymer clay, and it actually worked!! Got a little carried away and made them in all sizes (this picture only captures 1/4 of what I made).

Bree & Bynn with their own

And then I decided to make cookies with candy cane bits.( I apologize for the picture quality. Will purchase a light box very soon.)

Tropical Fruits

Made some mangoes and papaya last night so I could take pictures of them in the morning in natural light. But it's pouring rain and no sunlight : (  It's time for me to get a lightbox.
I used polymer clay and pastels to color it up.

halved papaya and the rest in a wooden bowl

I never knew papayas were so bruised outside until I made them yesterday. It took a while just freckling and bruising it up!

Tudor Boar's Head

Finally finished the boar's head (babe). Decorated the platter with plums, red apples, gala apples, bartlett pears and holly.

Ikura sushi and a fruit bowl

I am currently still working on the boar's head (remember babe?) and I needed some fruits to decorate the platter- so I made some extra for a fruit bowl. While making the bananas, I realized how bruised they were in real life...made me sad.

And I got bored and made my favorite ikura sushi in 1:12. The eggs seem a little too big for the size, so I will try making it in 1:6 or 1:8. I bought the bigger version at Haneda airport for like $13 and actually felt good about it (this is how much I like this sucker!!).

Christmas Sweets

I wanted to join my fellow miniaturists in their holiday spirit and created some christmas cookies and cupcakes. Obviously Brynn wants the cupcake to herself.

I also tried to make Dorothy shoes, but as you can see it was a total failure. The glitter is all over the place (even for the 2 seconds I try to snap a picture...) and my fingers got too sticky and gooey and what a mess!

Cookie Monster

My favorite character from Sesame Street used to be Big Bird and the Cookie Monster, so when I saw the cookie monster cupcake, I HAD to make one for myself! (In mini of course...)

Since I'm almost sold out on cookies, made some more :)
Only if it was real, I would be eating them right now...and adding more pounds to the holiday weight ;P
