Last upload this year: a Hot Dog

This will be my last upload for this year - sounds dramatic, doesn't it? 
I am still thinking about what to make next. Hope to start this week on it. :)

This is my last project: 'Weenie' a OOAK little Hot Dog.
Would you turn into a vegatarian if a hot dog would look at you like that? 
Weenie is about 11"- 28cm from the head to the tail.

I don't know if it is a she or a he actually... what do you think?

Best wishes to everybody!

A Merry Christmas and have a wonderful and creative 2012!!!

I am trying so hard to get into the Christmas spirit but it is not really working. It's raining (last year we had snow), feeling a little sad and lonely, my hubbie was working the 24th and on Christmas day, nothing decent on tv and not many Christmas cards this year - everybody is sending unpersonal greetings through Facebook...
Highlights though: My new watch I got from my husband, I made Sushi yesterday and we watched 'The Gruffalo's Child' on BBC1 afterwards and we are going out for diner tonight!

I have somone new for you to meet.
It's 'Ting Ting', she is a little orangutan girl. 
Creating her took me as long as a real birth, I guess. I started on her but was not satisfied so she ended up in a little bag in a drawer - handless and unfinished. I decided to fiinish her afterall and now I am quit pleased with the result. I am sorry I had to give her away :(
Hope you like her.
Love Mel

'Annabel' my little basset hound lady.

As you can see I am very motivated to make new creations. 
Though my fingers are very painful and difficult at the moment.
But all your sweet comments, the nomination for the TED Worldwide Award, being in a local paper and on TV has given me a very big boost to make many new creations. Thank you! 

So this is 'Annabel' :)
I would love to have a basset hound - I love them! Though I am allergic... hate drooling, moulting and going for long walks... I'd die to have one! ( Looking with big puppy eyes to my hubbie - no responce.) 

Any ways,
I hope you like my none drooling or moulting, allergy free and cleanly little 'Annabel' .

Love, Mel

Going nuts!

I am happy to introduce you to my latest two creations:

'Hazel' and 'Scrappy'

Two very hungry squirrels! And they love candybars!
I did not mind making them because I had to eat all the candybars they are holding and sitting on (!)
Yes, they are all empty and filled with aluminum foil.
So, no candybars for me for a while... :P 

'Scrappy' -  He is holding a 'Snickers' candybar. His favourite!
He is about 23cm – 9”.

Scrappy is actually the name of a mouse my sister used to have for a short while - untill our parrents found out...
There is a very funny story to that actually. :) Isn't it, Bi?

And then 'Hazel'.
'Hazel' a hungry squirrel. His favourite candybars are 'Nuts' and he is looking forward in eating them all!
The candybar is made of FIMO polymer clay. It was hard not wanting to eat that one too.
His total height 24 cm - 9,5". 
Hazel without candybars: 18cm - 7".

 Hope you like them both.

Love Mel
