Cherrylicious!!

  Yesterday I whipped up a batch of polymer clay cherries. Then I mixed up some cherry sauce from fimo, clay from my cherry batch, and soft pastels. It was my best cherries yet, so I went all out and made a bunch of desserts with it! Two of my favourite cakes; Cherry Cheesecake andContinue reading “Cherrylicious!!”

BBQ Ribs & Baked Potato for 18 Inch Dolls

I made these today as I thought about BBQs getting fired up soon. It occurred to me that little girls should have some BBQ food for their dolls too. And if the dolls should have food, why not make it realistic? There are lots of plastic mass produced doll food in the big box stores…butContinue reading “BBQ Ribs & Baked Potato for 18 Inch Dolls”

A Mini Succulent Garden

  This weekend brought news that we were in for more snow Monday. I have seriously had my fill of winter!!! I could wait no longer for spring…if the real blooms aren’t happening, I was going in search of some faux ones.

So much so that it inspired this latest creation. The other night I was finishing up season 2 of HBO’s The Leftovers (the weirdest show since TwinContinue reading “Tiny Abundance”

Time to make the donuts…

Valentine’s weekend left me with a full heart and chocolate withdrawal. The only way to get my fix was to make some donuts. It didn’t matter that they weren’t edible, they were still satisfying. The weekend allowed us to put together a small light box from a wooden frame and vellum panels. Until I getContinue reading “Time to make the donuts…”

Little Sweeties

It’s funny. As a society we are getting more uptight about what we eat. We (ok, maybe not me) are healthier, more fit, and more thoughtful about what we put into our mouths… But OH, how we love looking at delicious food. And wearing it. Have you seen the explosion of foodie jewelry on theContinue reading “Little Sweeties”
