Ever have one of those days?...

The hurrier you go the behinder you get? Well...that's what my whole month has been like!!!! My sweet grandies just celebrated a milestone in their tiny lives, they had their first Birthday,Sat. It was so funny to see their little mugs all covered with cake and riding a choo-choo train around the neighborhood!!! But I doubt they will remember...good thing for cameras!!!! So I barely had enough time to do my sculpts let alone come check my blog or mail! But I did have priorities! I was actually thinking that I might not finish my sculpts in time for tomorrows SpookyTimeJingles offerings!! Thank goodness I got them done, but only two items this time, I just finished about 30 minutes ago!!!!!Here's one of the little guy's Punkin Pete & Joe

The summer trees have shed their leaves.
An Autumn wind throws it's first freeze.
Then Punkin Pete And Joe his crow
Delight in the night, dontcha know!
As haints and witches and goblins alike,
And even the ghosts are seen.
Punkin Pete and Joe his crow
Make ready for halloween.
by Flora Thompson

And here's the other...Frost Fairy

I'm the frost in the air,
The nip on your nose.
And the chill that you feel,
Way down to your toes!
It's not hard to guess
It's only me...the Frost Fairy!

by Flora Thompson

I'm getting too old for they are before

Ahhh a new post with great creations! I love them. What kind of clay are you using? Looks like 2 different ones. I just love their eyes! Really great sculpts Flora!


Flora said...

Hello Amy!,
Actually it's only one clay, shot one wet the the other dry, they both have apoxie sculpt for support,It's an airdry clay, but it's terra cotta colored, stains everything if you're not careful!!
