I haven't done any crafting in eons. It has made me sad. Cry

So I joined the 50 in 50 craftalong. The crazy skills and wild productivity there has lit a fire. I'm not making progress on my 50 projects yet, but I am crafting. Sort of like priming the pump, maybe?

So tonight I dragged out my tub-o-clays and made this sheepy magnet for a friend whose birthday was Sunday. She likes sheep and has them everywhere, except on her fridge. Until now.



The design was based off a card I had only the front of, so I don't know who did the original, sorry. I stamped the "curls" with thin wire I formed and glued onto an old pencil's eraser.



On the gift, after modpodge, magnet attachment, and temporary attachment to part of a coffeehouse cup holder with a texture I couldn't resist.



Lotsa fingerprints, and the back's a mess. It's nice to be playing again!

I spent more time trying to hold onto the super-magnets than I did molding and stamping the sheep. Those things actually flew about a foot to a frame...after they'd been in the glue for several minutes. Huh

But anyway, after a long drought, I'm crafting again!  Grin

Thanks, maxxev. I hope she liked it!

green r my tears, it was hand-formed. I used a clay tool to cut the body shape/legs but you could use an x-acto knive. I used another clay tool to poke eye holes and make the "curls" on his forehead, but you could use a paperclip. The face started out as a ball, pulled into a teardrop, and the ears started out as snakes pulled into teardrops, too!

Good luck! I'd love to see yours if you try one!
