I have a friend who is completely batty over Nightmare... Well, anything Burton for that matter. So for her birthday back in May (yes, I'm a procrastinator at times), I decided to make her Zero for her desk at work.

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy my bit of procrastination as much as Nicole did!
There's a light on in the attic. Through the house is dark and shuttered, I can see a flickerin' flutter, and i know what it's about. There's a light on in the attic. I can see it from outside, And I know you're on the inside...lookin' out.

This was the very first poetry book I ever received as a child. In fact, it was a birthday present from my older sister. I fell in love with Shel Silverstein at that point.
Ever since then, I've always wanted to make something Silverstein-inspired... Since I could never think of something to have tattooed on my body, polymer clay was my next best bet.
Other than the eggshell inside, hemp cord and acrylics.. It's entirely made out of polymer clay.
Two of my best friend's co-workers finally stopped drooling over her penguin figure I made her for her birthday, so they finally put in teir requests. They didn't give me too many details just "I want penguins" & "I want frogs".So, I went off in my own little direction and the gals loved them.
My favorite, the penguins.
He just cracks me up every time I see his little blank stare.
I love this time of year.. When all stores carry neat little Halloween decorations. I came across these little bad boys the other day and nearly bought the store out. I think I have a problem... but the possibilities are endless! So far, I've only turned one pack into necklaces. The hands are awesome cause they 'click' together making them the coolest clasps ever. I'm truly in love... And once my toddler goes to bed, another pack of these little beauties have a date with my Dremel.
You would never guess that this octopus was once a mix of glow in the dark and translucent sculpey. My toaster oven at work is the mouth of hell and burns everything within 2.5 minutes. I rather enjoy what happened to it.. it gave it a really neat texture and well.. looks awesome in black, especially with the silver.
This was pure genius on my behalf... I finally found a use for silica beads you find in new shoe boxes and other crazy random things. And I also found out that when coating them in sculpey glaze sometimes makes some of them explode. It kept me on my toes and totally turned out awesome.
This is my corporate-safe, cutesie skull. Most of the cubicle zombies think it's a cloud... No imagination, I swear. lol
Bubbly zombie hands are so cute
First time experimenting with spider web cane.
Painting with poly clay is interesting. And I love this pendant, I want to make one in red now.
Inside the jar there's various shades of blue & pearl beads, along with a treasure map and other little sparkly do-dads. It's one of the cutest spur of the moment creations ever.
A cuppy cake for my daughter.. once she's old enough to finally wear it.
This thing is freakin' huge! I wear one constantly.
This one I'm thinking about putting on a hemp necklace, it's nice and chunky.
Yet another rather large pendant.
I <3 Jeffry Combs & mad scientists.
No comment is needed for this one... The cuteness says it all.
I truly do have a skull obsession
Phew! My pinky is tired of copying & pasting... Hope you like them.
This is a collection of a nice-size chunk of all (my favorite) sushi/takeout related sculpey (and paper) creations from the past 2-3 years. I'm queen of procrastination and take forever to upload pictures.
My personal favorites are the bracelet (Which was my very first sushi/takeout experiment and my 3rd project ever using sculpey), the 2 small plates o' sushi charms and the little salmon egg thingys. I don't like eating the stuff, but it's so much fun to make. Whatcha think?
I've seen lots and lots of people carve their own stamps out of erasers, which is freakin' awesome. I've always wanted to do it, but never remember to buy erasers to do it with. But I was wondering, since I have mounds and mounds of Sculpey eraser clay, if I could use that. Has anyone ever tried it? The boredom of work is tempting me to try that right now... hopefully the toaster oven here won't burn my stuff again.
I've been a busy girl for the past couple of weeks, trying to finish things for craft fairs and silent auctions. And here's a few things I've made in the past few days. Excuse the not too great photos.
