I have not been able to make anything for the past 2 months and am dying to create something!!!
For those of you who have added my blog or fanned my facebook or etsy page, thank you very much and I am sorry for the delayed notice.

A friend of mine has recently asked me to make him anythin chicken and that got me really motivated, but I am in a very difficult situation right now...
I have this great idea in mind but cannot create it, which really hurts.
I guess I have to be doing some sort of creating in my life to feel like I'm really living :)

I will get back to work as soon as possible, so please don't forget Summergerine <3

Halloween is around the corner... Really?!

Getting ready for Halloween.
I guess it's a late start in the artsy world.
But its so hard to get started since its still summery hot in Texas!!!
The pools are literally boiling, it's like a hot tub!
I took my lil sister and my kids to the pool around 3pm to cool off, but returned in a hour b/c we were heat struck and dehidrating.

So anywayz... I'm making candy corns thinking of Halloween and trick-o-treating and all.
Did I already mention how much I hate GRAVITY???
When I'm making these little clay parts, and when you don't have finger prints like me, everything just tends to fall.
and then I'd have to stop what I'm doing and pick it up, like every two seconds!
It gets annoying.
Yeah, I'm missing a finger print on my thumb today:(
Me and my skin allergy to clay (and everything else).

I got my fingerprints taken a while ago, and the officer taking them thought she was doing them wrong or something.
And then looked at my hand and was like, "oh..." after noticing I didn't carry a set of fingerprints to print. lol
So yeah, it's very hard to work b/c without a grip on the finger pads, things just fall.
I broke a glass the other day b/c the cup just slipped outta my hands.

The heat, gravity, and my un-useful hands are making the situation terrible...
so getting ready for Halloween is gonna take a few days :P

V's Contact Lens Case

This is the contact lens case that V asked me to make.
I was thinking of decorating contact lens cases, but just the little L and R cases, not something like this.
I mean, have you ever seen like a whole contact lens travel set or something?!
This set comes w/ tweezers and a little eye dropper tool and this something else that I have no clue what it is...
First of all, I don't wear lenses.
So I was clueless w/ all these tools.
Anyhow, I thought about decorating just the lens case, but then decided not to b/c you don't wanna get up every morning having to deal w/ twisting something that's hard to twist b/c of decorations.
Until V showed me a picture of what her lens set looked like and was like, oh---- I can decorate the square case itself instead of the contact lens case.
I'm probably getting some readers confused by saying "case" too many time.
But you'll see what I'm talking about when you see the photo of the actual item below.

Yeah neat huh?
It's like a contact lens travel tool kit or something.
Loaded w/ stuff!
I always thought the case just consisted of this L&R thing, whatever it's called.
But I was so wrong:)
Now, there's something to decorate!!!

Candy Shop

Here is the 2nd of the "Shop" Series: Candy Shop.
All the colorful candies and goodies that I love to pick out*

And I love how the M&M's turned out!
Broken in half, or bitten, whatever you wanna call it.

Today I worked on the 2nd of the "Shop" series, "Candy Shop."
...and at the same time, I had a request from Vxxxxxx to decorate a contact lens case.
They are both finished, but it's too late (and dark) to shoot photos, so that'd be the first thing I'd be working on tomorrow.

It's currently 12am and my kids (1 yr. old and 2 yr. old) are still awake...
I'd put the younger one to sleep around 9pm, but she'll always wake up around 11pm again with all the energy she just stored from her sleep, and they'll both bother me until 1am....
Still trying to figure out my work hours...
My kids are waaay too energetic!!!

"Never Be Late For Dessert" Alarm Clock

Simple alarm clock decorated with a whole new look!
Whip cream and a lot of sweets.
It looks really cute as a room decoration too.
