Made some good progress on my big HO and then ... disaster. *sniffle* Okay, it's not a total disaster and can likely be salvaged but, but ... it was so perfect before. *wail* Damn you polymer clay and your inevitable minute shifts and contractions when baking. I needed you to stay PRECISELY how I had you. Now I have to get really creative.

My big HO is this huge undertaking.
Step 1 - decorate the ______ and make it appropriately holiday-ified.
Step 2 - sculpt my wittle heart out and flex my polymer clay muscles to make a ______ ______.
Step 3 - sew some ______ for the _____.
Step 4 - fun with Photoshop.
Step 5 - Resin tinting and hazardous materials for fun and profit. Er, rather just fun.

Step 1 is complete Cheesy I can only focus on one thing at a time to convince myself I really can pull this off. But if I do ... well if I do I'm going to be taking a bajillion pictures and brag about it for at least a month. If I can pull it off.

Rethinking my Big HO--Not in love with it so it might have to be an "extra" Cheesy

Very happy with my small HO's...I might need to make duplicates for me! Cheesy

I am going to get more opinions from some crafty friends before I decide what I might do instead...I think it might be food overload brain fog! Hope everyone (in the USA) had a happy turkey holiday!

Dear partner, I'm sure the large HO you made is wonderful and I will love it!  No need to redo it!  Hopefully your crafty advisors will agree with me...
