The Most Overdue Update… In the World.

Hi everybody! Hope you all have been doing well. Me, well, just been surviving, not much time for crafts lately. But, I do have a whole back catalogue of pieces I’ve worked on here and there in the past few months. Hope you all enjoy 🙂

**Sorry for the potato quality pics, I haven’t felt like busting out the fancy camera in a while. That takes so much work, for getting the picture right, editing, ect. But one of these days I will fire it up again. These past few months have not seen that day, sadly.

Snowball Best Friends Necklace. I grew up with these snack cakes and thought they would make cute, recognizable food jewelry. Really like how they turned out!

A lovely custom order from Christmas time. The lady wanted something incredibly girly, pink, and with flowers. This is what I came up with. I have progress pics of the whole creation process in case anyone is interested in a post about that!

My friend at work commissioned me to make keychains for her daughters. One of the daughter;s keychain haa a picture of her baby in it. The other daughter, has 2 best friends and together they call themselves The Three Musketeers. My friend and I thought little candy bar charms would be cute on their keychains.

Cam O Chan's friend ordered a custom case based on the TV show StevenUniverse. He wanted it to be outer space themed and incorporate his favorite characters. The large clay gemstones represent a few of the characters. The black frosting is coated with blue and purple shimmer powder, but that didn't come out very well in the picture. Lastly, there is a dangly charm of the lovable character Cookie Cat.

Here are a few more cookie cats. The earrings have been quite a hit! If anyone wants to order some, drop me a line here or on Etsy. I will hopefully get a listing up for them soon!

I had always wanted to make a banana split and finally sat down to do it one day. I think it came out pretty swell for a first try. ^_^ The sundae I made after the split, just for the heck of it. Though, I am very proud of that hand crafted sundae glass!

*~Custom Decoden Phone Case Phase 1: Clay Charms~*

o((*^▽^*))o Hi everyone and welcome back to the happiest corner of the internet :p

Last week I had the privilege of receiving a custom order for an iPhone 6Plus decoden phone case. ^^ It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when people really like my work and want something made personally for them.

Anyways, I am trying to come up with a name for this case. It is going to have weapons, and Arashi logo, and Mario Brothers resin pieces, along with some sweets cabochons. Maybe Swords and Sweets? That sounds pretty cool.

Swords and Sweets: Weapons Edition.

Today I knocked out the clay portion of the cabochons for the case.

Here we have a Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts. This is the second one I have ever made, and it looks a loooootttt better than the first. I am really pleased with how it turned out :)

These are Link's Sword and Shield from the Legend of Zelda franchise. They were equally challenging to craft. I muse have re shaped the shield 10 times before settling on this incarnation! Oh my gosh, it was so frustrating. Y'all should have seen the first sword that I smashed back into a ball xD It looked so janky that I angrily smushed it up too. After 2 cups of coffee and some breathing exercises, these 2 finished products emerged, and I was pleased. *cue sigh of relief*

On the left is “version 2” and the right “version 1”.
I like 2 the most, what about y’all?

Next up on the case agenda will be the resin pieces, so I will post those up and a rough draft preview of the finished case! ^^

Thanks for checking out this post and have a wonderful day~! (ஐ╹◡╹)ノ

Another Way Overdue Update.

(*^▽^)/ Hi everybody! I am back with a pretty big update on the latest out of the Art Lab. Some day I think I will give y’all a tour of the place, how does that sound? :p

 ** Latest Sweets **

Texas Flag cookie charm hand

Because I am a Native Texan, I love this piece and wear it quite often! It’s my own design and just as unique as the kind of people you find in the Lone Star State.

This piece was made a few days before July 4th. I wanted something cute to wear to work that celebrated the holiday, and showed off my craft. :p

For some reason, I got the hankerin' to make cotton candy, so I picked up some fresh-on-the-markets powder and made this cotton candy!

Here’s another charm I made with the new powder. It’s a Mexican Cookie called Arcoiri, which means Rainbow, and their unofficial name is “the Snowballs”. These are quite popular as earrings and necklaces.

pink donut

This donut has been so popular and well liked that I am almost feeling too stingy to replicate it! hahaha Just kidding. I can make an army of donuts if the world so desires!

This is modeled after a Genoise Cake (ooooo fanccyyyyy). I've been having a lot of fun with layered cakes lately.

This cake.... I don't even know about this cake sometimes. I really wanted to make something with chocolate sprinkles, so I did. Then I really wanted it to have strawberries, so it does. Now that it's finished, it looks like some alternate dimension carrot cake O_o. To top it all off, somehow the frosting cracked on the big part. Like I said, I don't even know. This cake is totally not going up for sale, unless, you know, someone really falls in love with it haha.

** A Little Blogging Moment *

Let me take this moment to apologize for Vanna White-ing the entire post here. Currently my bakery and room scenes look like a tornado and earthquake came through… Would you like to see? xD

THIS IS THE MARK OF A REAL ARTIST AT WORK, PEOPLE!!!

THIS IS THE MARK OF A REAL ARTIST AT WORK, PEOPLE!!

I’ve got a couple new little scenes to build up, some pictures for an exclusive Sailor Moon room, plans for a little “outdoor market” type deal. and a Taj Mahal. Seriously, there is a Taj Mahal in that red box, I kid you not.

Really though, I’ve focusing so much on getting all my crafting materials organzied, and rearranging the entire room that the scenery has been on the backburner. After this week though, I will get it all set up again, then y’all can enjoy cute pictures sans hands. 🙂

Anyways, it’s way past my bedtime so I will be signing off. Stay tuned for the next resin update, and… KITTENS!!

♦.:’ My Little Pony Resin Showcase ‘:.♦

ʕ•̫ʔ♡*:.✧ Hey-lo everyone! Welcome back to my internet corner. 🙂 Hope y’all are doin’ okay, ’cause here it’s so cold and rainy, I just wanna drink hot beverages and watch anime all day. It’s even too cold to make clay, as the clay just cracks instead of molding smoothly, which means Chibi Act Two is on hold ’till the weather goes back to normal. 😦

Moving on, today we have the My Little Pony resin pieces, which a couple of them I am stupid excited about. Let’s begin with the small ones and work up to the Jumbo Double Sided Wall Ornament!

This is the first double sided resin piece I've made. It is cut from a comic book and suspended in resin with little confetti hearts as a border.

Just a few MLP necklaces. It is really difficult to fit stickers in these molds, but I can't find any others around this size that give a shine finish, most ice cube trays and candy molds in cute shapes leave the resin with a matte finish.

This is everyone’s favorite of the MLP pieces. I can see why, it’s hilarious! The resin seeped onto the right side of the picture a little bit, and I could “cover it” with some bling stones, but I like the simplicity of the piece as it is. What do you think?

…Drumroll Please!!

This is the Jumbo Double Sided Wall Ornament. I put some cute bows on the top to make it more kawaii and a white chain to hang from. I'm super proud of this piece!

Here is the back of the Jumbo piece. Orignally, I had intended this to be the front, but after I put the cabochons on the other side, that kinda transformed into the better side :p Sometimes with art, what you don't plan comes out the best!

By the way, I took these pictures in the new lightbox I made thanks to a suggestion from Kat at Pretty Cake Machine (thanks, chica!). Y’all let me know if the pictures are looking better this time around. 🙂

Have a good one, see ya ’round like a donut!ʕ•̫͡•ʕ*̫͡*ʕ•͓͡•ʔ-̫͡-ʕ•̫͡•ʔ*̫͡*ʔ-̫͡-ʔ

 

.:.*Weekend Project and a Little Extra*.:.

Hello my friends, I hope everyone survived the cold cold weekend, and to those of you in warmer climates, I am totes jelly.  .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·. On the bright side though, this cold weather should soon get me in the holiday spirit, which means festive winter clay pieces will be on the way. I’ve already had one customer at work asking where my Christmas earrings are, so I should deliver soon. :p

The cake army production has finally come to a hault. There are now enough to fill the cafe, which is nearly complete itself. Since no one has left any suggestions on how to swank-i-fy the scene, I am left to my own imagination, which is currently frozen due to the weather, hehe. I do have one small cake image to share, though.

A fancy coffee cake, so tiny it fits on the tip of your finger.

On the resin front, Jackie and I finally finished up her Frozen pieces and they look awesome. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture before they went to her house, but I will perhaps upload  a potato pic later on.

While the Frozen resin was happening, I started my own new line of what I like to call “Ice Crystal Pendants”. They are made with a clear background and slightly bundled glitter, so they look kind of like ice and the glitter gives a cystalline effect.

Finally we have the big Weekend Project, which I worked on during football. I take a tray and some supplies, set them up on the couch, and watch the games while working. It’s a pretty neat set up since I get to craft, see the games, and spend time with my boyfriend. ❤ 🙂

Taste the Rainbow. :D

The little cameo frames on the right came from a mold that I made from a cheapy cabochon and the wings on the right a made from a mold of wings I ordered off Etsy. I am intending to make the cameos into necklaces and the wings into hairclips, then sell or wear them as matching sets. 🙂 I’ve wanted the wing clips for a really long time so I am super excited to have them in a variety colors. As for the cameos, I will probably put Monster High, Hello Kitty, and Sailor Moon pictures in them.

As always, thanks for reading and feel free to leave feedback in the comments. I love to hear from people, including you! ( ^_^)/Ciao!

 

¡¡ Long Overdue Update !! – Sweets yaaaay!

This is the third of the update posts, I saved the best for last ^_^ Before continuing though, I just want to say thanks again for coming back, and don’t worry, I won’t do a triple update like this again any time soon ^_^;; Without further ado, on with the show!

I love love love this piece! It's a chocolate cake roll with some fruit slices on the top.

Rainbow Cake. You know, I really like rainbows, but I am afraid if I make too much rainbow stuff, it'll scare people away, so I try and keep it to minimum. This though, has to be one of my favorite pieces so far.

Project T.A.R.T. is complete :3 This is *the first* successful, realistic looking tart. I am so proud of this piece that I have it sitting on my desk so I can look at it from time to time. This is really easy to replicate, so if I need to make more I can. yay TARTS!

Next time I hope to have some Sailor Moon stuff, seeing as how it’s  been so popular thus far, and quite frankly I heart making those items as much as cakes. Ciao! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ_彡☆バンバン!!

¡¡ Long Overdue Update !! – Resin

Recently I got into a new (for me) type of creations – – Resin. For the uninitiated, basically it’s creating plastic-type charms with some kind of sticker paper or image inside of it, and lots of glitter ^_^ This works for me ’cause I ❤ glitter! Anyways, here are a few of the resin pieces I’ve made. There will be a lot more posted in the future, when I can perfect their looks. 🙂

Everyone loves Rilakumma ^_^ I got a sleepy time sticker set and this is one of my favorites from it.

These are some of the first pieces I made. The two oval shaped ones my mom swiftly claimed as her own when she saw them. :p The other two are characters from Sentimental Circus, which is a Hello Kitty type franchise, but darker.

Pac-Man and Ghosty friends. I had made a Mrs. Pac-Man as well, but she got stuck to the crafting board (aka "the slab"). The Ghosties will go on keychains as is, and Pac-Man will be made to look like he is trying to eat the dots.
