These are my last two ornaments for this year before I pack everything up for our move. I would like to make more but time is getting on and I am downsizing everything. Once I am settled in the new place I hope to get back to creating. I shall wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year .

I was not feeling like doing much lately so did this easy peasy project I found in pintrest. I think it is quite a cute one to make little gifts or ornaments for Christmas . Maybe I will make some more.
Here is the link if you want to make it too. https://youtu.be/K4CVzq45WVM

I finally finished my pumpkin girl. I can see a lot of flaws in her. But one has to learn to do it better. I do find hard to judge the baking time for polymer clay in my oven. Since its a small oven I feel it really does not get upto the right temperature because the stem on her head kept snapping off. Anyway finally all done. I think the colour could have been lighter and a bit more orange in it. Here she is, hope you like her.

I just started making a pumpkin doll. It was a free course offered by Curious Mondo. The teacher was Karen Baker. She is a wonderful artist and a teacher. Its is a polymer clay doll. I have only made a couple of polymer clay dolls so I am learning still. I was going to go for a conference in Windy City 2 years back and had enrolled to take a class with Karen Baker . Unfortunately the pandemic happened so everting got cancelled. If I ever get a chance to go again I will grab that chance. In the meantime here she is. i am in the process of making her cloths now. A lot to do still. But it is a fun doll so having fun with her.

I have been away from blogging again. So many things have happened in the meantime and one of them has been , my mother passed away after being ill and going through a lot of suffering. I was with her for the last 3 weeks but had to come away and she passed away after I left. She is now without pain and suffering in the arms of our Lord. She was 97 years.
By Margaret Widdemer
She always leaned to watch for us
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.
And though we mocked her tenderly
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.
Waiting ‘til we come home to her
Anxious if we are late
Watching from Heaven’s window
Leaning from Heaven’s gate.
