The Cheshire Cat in all his Shimmering Glory!

It's Wednesday. I'm ready for it to be Friday, but I guess I will wait a day or two if you are going to make me. Just say'n. Things are a bit crazy around my life right now...I'm not really sure why...maybe I'M just crazy. I don't know, but things feel a bit crazy.

SPEAKING of crazy...have you seen my Cheshire Cat? Oh...yes...I made one. And oh, yes...I love HIM!!!!!

Tee-Hee! He's kind of crazy! I sculpted him from Creative Paperclay® over a foam and foil base that I created. He is painted with Luminarte Twinkly H2O's and a white paint pen. He shimmers!!!!!! That part makes me happy. Just say'n.

His tail is supported by a piece of wire inside the clay. I really love how he turned out!!

AND...he looks so cute sitting with the Mad Hatter I created a long time ago!!!

I suppose I should get on to creating an Alice to go with them...but I think perhaps a certain set of twins may come first. They are SO FUN! I am submitting this Cheshire Cat to the Altered Alice Stripes Challenge! You can see the full tutorial on how I made him over on the Creative Paperclay® blog! Feel free to leave comment there, as well! We love your comments!

And...because it's Wednesday....

WOYWW 1/25/12


Yup. This is the State of My Desk address. LOL! You can see the results of some pretty fun projects that are no longer on said desk. And...if you look closely...you will see a little sneak of the Skipping Stones Design stamps being released in February! It's a fun one! If you would like to see more desks and their current states and such, head on over to Julia's blog! And feel free to join in the WOYWW fun, too!

Have a Happy Wednesday and don't forget to eat some candy today. It's good for you. Just trust me on this one. I'm an expert on the subject. Just say'n.
