Here are some of my latest creations. They make me happy.

This is my *signature* polymer clay charm.  It's one of my favourite things to make! It is a skull in the shape of a cupcake with a big glob of icing on their heads! Just like a cuppy-cake! The best of both worlds - spookiness with sweets!



This is something that I have been wanting to show you guys. Something I have never seen done. But I thought you might like it and might want to make some of your own:



It's saltwater taffy! You take a nice little rectangle of colourful bright candy coloured clay, and than roll a piece of transparent clay really really thin, about twice as long as the rectangle. Than you put the rectangle on the clay, roll it up like a piece of waxed paper, and than gently twist the ends. It gives the look of that old fashioned waxed paper wrapper! I love it.

These are some yummy looking chocolate eclairs. Mmm.



Some donuts!





Inspired by one of my favourite cookie recipes to make as a chef. Death-by-chocolate cookies! At the restaurant I used to work in, I used to make these cookies and would sandwich two of them with some homemade vanilla icecream for a dessert special. Oh so very rich. I'm hungry...  Tongue

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Thanks guys! I can't tell you how hungry I get after I make these bloody evil things!  Cheesy

I go to the art store and get myself "White Charcoal". It seems hard to find. I find it with all the other black charcoal and stuff. You could also use a hard white dry pastel pencil or stick. You just dab a little liquid sculpey on the donut, grate the charcoal with a razor blade, and than bake it up. If some of it comes off (which it will) just throw on some powdered charcoal just after you glaze/varnish it.

Those are all so cute!  I love the textures on them, they look very realistic. (Neat idea for using the dry charcoal, I haven't thought of using anything other than acrylic paint on sculpey before.) For some reason I'm really enticed by that semi-transparent look of the saltwater taffy.  Great job!
