Rustic Snowman and Others

About this design:

I am trying to get into the spirit of winter! lol We have already had one snow...not bad just a light dusting. Not enough to build a snowman, however.
But yet still thinking of fall too! :) And owls! :)


polymer clay, acrylic paint, my nemesis called sculpey glaze

    On my word, the snowman is sooooo precious! Love the earmuffs! You should name him “Chester” after Chester Greenwood, the inventor of earmuffs :)
    I adore the owls; they are precious, too! Love the detail in the leaves and links.
    I need to take a class from you on how to use PC!!

    Oh my! Those owls are just fantastic! Especially the little red one with the heart face! Love the leaf beads too. You should make some more of the silvery gray ones, hint, hint! Chester and his little bird friend are adorable too, although I’m steadfastly refusing to acknowledge that winter is lurking.

    Oh, what a riot! I’ll check your etsy site :)

    I was reminded about the earmuff invention because there was a special on Maine PBN about Chester Greenwood (who was from Farmington, Maine). I think he helped put that town on the map – LOL.

    Thanks Need4Beadz and Gail!

    Gail: I will see what I can do about the silver leaf beads. :) I will let you know when I make another set if you would like first shot at them! ;)

    Lois you are too funny! lol :) Yeah, that was a pretty fantastic invention…I read he was only 15 when he invented them! Sheesh..wish I would thought of it! ;)

    I love the owls! I’ve been crazy about owls since I was a kid, that’s a long, long time. But all your stuff is to die for.
