Sleeping Baby Ornaments

Ha! Ha! Fooled you!! This one is awake!
But those sleeping babies.....
I've spent the day uploading pictures to my Etsy site as you may know. The brain is weary. But I always have something else to learn. My camera is not the best but I definitely am LEARNING how to use it's limited capabilities. It should prepare me for when I get a REAL camera.
These ornaments I listed are a little sidekick from the real deal. But they are fun anyways and if they don't sell then I will have some nifty gifts...!
Tonight I have a couple of white babies and another pink one. I don't think I will get them on tonight, maybe tomorrow morning.
As you can imagine there is glitter everywhere! But, hey, it cleans up, right????
Tomorrow the gang comes and I get to play grandma...

I make the best.....

Sometimes I put other things in the oven besides doll parts.....
I am the only one in this house who will eat the stuff so I am pretty lucky.!
Do you want the recipe?
Well, here it is anyways....

2 cups cooked rice (1 cup uncooked)
2 cups scalded milk
2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
little bit of salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup craisins or raisins or blueberries or raspberries

Beat the eggs with the sugar, add the salt. Add the hot rice and hot milk. Add the vanilla.
Pour into casserole dish and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Place in pan of 1" water and bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or when knife inserted comes out clean.

Eat all at once before it gets cold. Serves one.!!! JK - probably four.

Angel doll part two

Okay, so now she gets her arms....

Her dress is mocked up....will have to revise.....

Someone is watching....someone is bored....

Next project

Think I can finish this angel by Monday? We'll see. That's my next deadline. Sorry for the dreadful gray images. Need a new camera - can you tell? And sorry too for the backward time to fix it.

You sculpt what?

Snowmen. Actually these are for our church sale tomorrow. They are just kind of fun and easy. They brought back memories of the good old days making ornaments.

Back to the Cernit problem. I ordered some "new" stuff - it is supposed to be rid of the issues that have been plaguing it for the past two years. We'll see.

In the meantime I decided to finish a piece that I had started. I am making one of my annual Christmas angels. I had one half package left of the old and now precious Cernit from way back. It sculpted up like a dream. Pretty sad day. UNLESS the new stuff is just as good as the old stuff.....

Now what?

So as you can imagine I have been muddling around kind of lost in this messy studio.
1. Cernit has changed. It has been very hard to work with.
2. My arms and shoulders are totally wrecked.
3. My eyes are crossed.
4. Been experimenting with Puppen Fimo.
5. Been sculpting tiny stuff - used to hate it....getting to like it...
6. Every year at this time the Christmas crafts call my name....
7. IDEX usually cancels the call.
8. This year I answered quietly.
9. IDEX still looms.
10. I made some really cute sleeping baby ornaments.
11. The floodgates opened.....
12. Angels, more babies, more angels, Santa Lucia's, birds, glitter, glitter, glitter...
oh my. now what?
