For the nest swap at @ http://vivs-whimsy.blogspot.com/ this is what I came up with for my partner!....First I made a finch and eggs out of paperclay and then I painted them to look realistic! Chris @ http://perfectlyprinted.blogspot.com/ said she like the natural look so I was going with somewhat of a realistic look! I bought a jar at Michaels and added some floral grass to the bottom of the jar...I then glued my eggs into the nest and nestled it in the bottom of the jar. Next I made the little banner to match the color scheme I was going for. I also took this print and put a circle of it in the top of the lid and I also painted the rim of the lid in an egg blue color and also added a touch of lace around it. I then attached the banner to a stick that I found outside that I mearsured for a good fit. I glued the stick in place and then glued my paperclay finch on the branch! That's about it...I love how it turned out!

This is going to be a real challenge! His paint job looks pretty scarey! Last year when Michele and I went to visit my mom, Betty in Florida we found this little guy...we only paid $3.00 for him. The gentleman that we bought him from told us he was an old store display that his mother painted and tried to fix! He is about 25 inches tall. He really needs a lot of work. I am planning on fixing him this week....I am going to try to use the paperclay. I think it should work. Then I will paint him some new hair and fix his eyes nose and mouth. Wish me luck on this one. If you have a helpful suggestions they are all welcome :)

Hello everyone...I've been so busy that I haven't been able to keep up with all of my bloggy friends...please forgive me... Here is the remake of the teacup and...doesn't the little girl look like she saying I only have eyes for you? I am still an amature on making clothes this small but I am happy that they are dressed!
I made the cowboy hat out of felt, and I also added the sweet yellow bow to the little girl.
Some of you may remember that I did make a teacup but I wasn't to happy with it so this is what I came up with after doing a google on making paper teacups. I basically added flower petal shapes to the one I already made...then I painted it red and added dots! I also gave my little girl some cotton candy that I made out of paper and cotton with a little glitter to sweeten it up. I hope everyone had a lovely, fun weekend.
