I love them all, but I especially like the coffee and PB&J's. =)

Thanks! I love the coffees most right now. I kept a pair of mochas for myself as earrings. Yummy! lol ^_^

I love the sushi ones!

I think the donut charm needs a Homer Simpson charm to match Wink

these are really cute!  I esp. love the PB&J and the pancakes... the butter looks melty! that's really cool.  Also, good work on the sushi cane. I love how everybody on here loves things that look like sushi even if they don't actually like sushi (I love sushi not sure if you do or not  it's just a trend I noticed!).

My favourites are the coffee and the pancake charms.  I especially like how the butter and syrup look glossy and melty on the pancake.

lol, I haven't noticed a trend. I do however, love sushi though. My hubby and I go out for sushi every couple of weeks or so and we try to make it at home as well (but we always make a huge mess).

That would be totally cute. lol

Thanks! I really think the pancake charm is one of my faves too...

Wow, you were really productive when you were sick!!  Very nice little charms.

I would also like to know how you get the metal to stay in the clay? I tried this, but when they came out of the oven and i gave the metal loop a test pull it came right out! just wondering if you had any tips on that.

reuse, the best way to get eyepins, etc, to stay in the clay (when inserting them before baking into raw clay) is to bend the bottom part of the shank (I actually bend a zigzag) before inserting, then snug the clay back around the shank.  That creates a mechanical hold on the shank which makes it impossible to pull out, and no glue is necessary.  (A hole or a slit can be made in the clay for the shank before inserting.)  
If you want to read more about that and other ways to put "hangers-connectors" of various types in polymer clay, check out this page:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/pendants_cording.htm
...click on Top Loops and perhaps also on Flat Holes

also if you could show how to make donuts that would be great!

(There are some lessons on making donuts as well as other sweets and breads on this page, for now:
http://glassattic.com/polymer/miniatures.htm > Donuts)

Just one thing about blades to use with clay too, especially for slicing canes... for best results, you'll want to use a very thin, very sharp blade, and also a blade you can hold with both hands while cutting. There are various long flexible or semi-flexible blades that are sold for use with polymer clay, but single-edge razor blades work well as long as the clay or cane isn't too thick, and even wallpaper blades can be used for some things.  
There's lots of info on all kinds of blades (and other cutters) that can be used for polymer clay here,
under Blades:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/cutters-blades.htm
And info on Cutting Canes in particular, here which also includes cooling them, etc:
