❅☃ Post Holiday Update :D ☃❅

(‘-‘*)オヒサ♪ Long time, no see.

We had some very busy holidays around here in Deco-Kitty central.(´~`)

In the past couple months, I have made ~65 batches of chili (Jk, it’s prolly closer to 8, but it feeeeels like more), been on multiple road trips, gone through 2 fits of a bad cold, met multiple members of my boyfriend’s family (*≧▽≦)オハツでっす♪, planted herbs for cooking with, and began the Spring cleaning. Phew!

Anyways, enough rambling, on with the show!

The first piece is a character from Monster High, Abbey Bominable, the daughter of the Yeti. Unbeknownst to most of my friends, I really like the Abominable Snowman, Jack Frost, the Snow Queen, and other characters that deal with coldness/ice/snow, though I am not sure why since I can’t stand cold weather. xD So, given that fun fact, I decided to craft this character first for my upcoming Monster High series, because she’s my favorite character so far.

Yay first image which I tried to add a little extra flair to the foreground :) I am trying to make my pictures look better.

Yay! first image which I added a little extra flair to the foreground 🙂 I am trying to make my pictures look better, hopefully it works.

Of course I couldn’t stay away from making Sailor Moon stuff for long, right?

This is Sailor ChibiMoon's Crystal Carillon. I carefully crafted it so that the bells rings clearly ^_^

The sword on the left is called Kaleidomoon Scope (not sure why). I've really liked that weapon and always wanted a miniature toy version of it, so I got to make my own ^_^ On the left is Sailor Venus' transformation wand.

I made two bells and two Chibimoon wands so I can keep one and give the other to a friend. She also ordered the Sailor Venus wand and a few other things. (’-’*) フフ Big shout out to Cam-O-Chan for the encouragement and support!!!

When I showed my boyfriend the Sailor Moon sword, he reminded me that he had requested an Adventure Time sword, but that was right around when I first started crafting with clay, and I had forgotten since then |・ω・`)コッショリ So I figured after I made me a sword, I would make him a sword, which means we both got swords! Yay! Sword fight!

This is Fin with his Demon Blood Sword. Feels kinda weird typing that amidst all this pink and glitter on the blog :p

The next pictures were taken with the cell phone, so I apologize for the quality. They were gifted as Christmas presents or had to be delivered quickly before I decided to take on the camera again.

These were given to my BF's twin sisters. I think they came out really adorable

The reason I made this is because the BF's grandma crafted him a quilt for Christmas. It was even featured in a quilt show! Anyways, since she was giving the quilt to him, I wanted to try and replicate the pattern on clay for her :) She loves Mickey Mouse so I combined the two for this piece.

The following two below are a big Sailor Moon haul that left home very quickly.

It's all about the bow. That's my favorite piece in this bunch.

And lastly, in honor of the Chinese/Lunar New Year, we have some lucky red envelopes that will be given to my friends when I see them 😀

It was a lot of fun painting the pictures on these. In fact, so much fun that I had contemplated making another batch!

✯✈ Sailor Evan Art!! ✈☃

A few weeks ago, one of my favorite Youtubers requested that people draw him as a Sailor Moon character and he will send gifts in trade. Well, since I was too lazy to draw (go figure), I made him out of clay. Here is the video announcing the trade offer:

ヘ(^_^ヘ)(ノ^_^)ノ

Moving on, here are the images.

This is how he began. Look, there's even a neck hehe.  He reminds me of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.  :p

He got bored and decided to hit up the Corner Cafe' before heading out to his new home.  Too bad his guest is keeping him waiting! That's just like her isn't it!

Whilst waiting for the weather to be a little less frosty (ie not mailing it out for a couple days), Evan said in another video that he really likes the tambourine that the characters use, my immediate thought was: Challenge Accepted.

I didn't realize the image was so blurry when I took this picture, so my apologies for that.  This is Sailor Jupiter's tambourine and I think it came out pretty good for a first try! :D

Thanks everyone for checking out this post, and thanks Evan for the trade. I’m looking forward to getting my package in the mail next.

☃☃ The Adventures of Dac and Laser + a Short Rant ☃☃

Recently, my friend who requested the Panda and Taco keychain chain ordered a fridge magnet of the same character, and thus DacTac was born. He was lonely when he first came into this world, until he met the studio livin’ veteran Laser the Hedgehog.

Dac and Laser's adventures began at the Corner Shelf Cafe. Dac ordered a Strawberry Cake, as recommended by Laser.

Laser soon learned that Dac was not going to be here very long, so they promptly left the cafe to go sight seeing!

Wanting to see more of the place, the duo hailed a CatCab to arrive at their destination more quickly.

They decided to pose for a picture before boarding the Cab.

Update, and why I haven’t posted anything recently:

The camera and I do not get along well. Whether it is the battery going dead, or the memory card taking a vacation, or the flash doing too good of a job, it seems like I always have some kind of problem. Today I took a bunch of pictures of new pieces, and the exposures on all of them are different (Thanks, Flash!), so it would look quite silly to upload them in the same post.  I might get them up today after my tech genius boyfriend shows me how to use the camera, or I might wait until after this holiday weekend, not sure yet. Either way, just know that there are a lot of exciting new pieces coming from the kitchen, including Holiday Cakes, Mickey Mouse, and Sailor Moon related items.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving with Too Much Stuffing! :p

☪ ☪ Sailor Moon Charms and No Face ☪ ☪

Hello, friends!

This week, I decided to make some Sailor Moon charms for myself, since the others ones I made went up for sale.

Crisis Locket necklace charms

...and earrings :)  Next time I am going to make another true-to-size brooch, but I'm keeping that one :p

Here is the original version from the cartoon:

For the “gems” in the following, I used real stones to give them a more real life feeling. Hey, who can say gemstones aren’t cool, too!?

I call this one the "star brooch". The one one the left is a chunkier version and the right more flat. They are necklace charms.

These tiny ones are going to be used for decoden since they didn't turn out 100% good.

Pretty much true to size, this brooch is awesommmmee!

Last but not least we have an army of No Faces. Painting them was quite tricky so I made a few to get practice. While they aren’t perfect, I think they will do for now. There are still 2 literal no faced No Faces in the “studio”, so they will be my chance to redeem myself :p

welp, creepy lil guys on a rainbow background isn't weird at all.... er.... :/

♂♀ Chibis, a Custom Job, and a Couple Charms ♂♀

( ´ ▽ ` )ノ タダイマァ

I finally made people! *dances around all happy like*.  The following are “chibis” that I mention in the most recent blog update:

After I made the previous two, I wanted to try making Sailor Moon so so so bad, that I rushed through it and made a few mistakes, namely the collar. Personally I don't think it's that great, but my friends have said it's blog worthy so here she is!

Alright moving on, here is the custom job:

This little guy is named Laser and he is the mascot for my friend's company. Being a hedgehog n' all, he has a ton of little tiny spikes that were quite the feat to make.

☺☺ New Decodens and Halloween Stuff! ☺☺

Hi and welcome back! ^_^ After the video game character charms, and the chibis, I had a chance to make some cakes. There was a Halloween cake on the cover of a cooking magazine that had really cool colors, so my intention was to create it and put it in a Halloween container. Here is how it went down:

Despite looking lovely and yummy, it is too big for the container V_V

Next I made this one, which again, does not fit. I forgot how to measure X_X

After the last two, I figured I would make one even smaller, match the size to the container, and finally reach my goal. Well, at the last minute I stupidly put too wide of frosting on the edge and it doesn't fit either. >.<

Here are the three Halloween containers I decoden'd. The golden snitch lookin' bats, pumpkins, candy corn, and wicked witch head were made by me. (You may recognize the witch and small candy corns from a prior post. Yay they finally got a home:) )

This was a request from my Grandma to give as a Christmas gift to a little girl who likes flowers and princess stuff. I hope she likes it ^_^

▲◄ Video Game Characters ►▼

Until recently, I have focused on cakes, sweets and decoden, so branching off into the video game realm has been a new and exciting challenge for me. I think my little guys turned out pretty well. ^_^ But I wanna know what you think too 😉

These are Shy Guys from Super Mario Brothers. The original shy guy is pretty cute, but these are just plain creepy in my opinion. Their creepiness makes them cool, though.

☻☻UPDATE !!!! Good things have been happening. ☻☻

Sorry I have been away so long, friends! 

m(_ _)m ゴメンナサイ

Here is the good news though, I have my clay figures in a couple of real life stores now 🙂 🙂 People have been telling me to use Etsy, but it just feels like a big garage sale to me. I figure it is a lot more prestigious to say “yes my work is at (name of store)”, than “yeah I’m in the sea of other crafters on Etsy. Also, people who want to buy can see the charm first, so that is another plus. Edit 2015- I broke down and made an etsy shop to more easily connect with people who are interested in my art. While I still hold that there are some garage sale-y things on the site, and I will continue to vend locally, it is very convenient to use the site for branching out.

This is not to say that I will not do custom orders through the internet though. In other words, if you want something seen on my blog or a custom job done, you can Email Me

Anyways, it took me about two weeks to get everything done to put in the stores. The first week focused solely on Sailor Moon items. Unfortunately I didn’t have the time to take fancy pictures of everything so here is one image of all the pieces before they were delivered to their temporary home:

My favorite ones are the pentacles with gemstones in them and the big huge brooch with wings on it. The yellow little heart with wings was quite tricky to make. Everything else I have pretty much done enough times that I've got a system down. Hehe SOAD.

The second trip out to town I delivered these to their temporary home with the items above:

This is a Luna P ball. My friend requested one so I went ahead and made a few extras to put in the store. They are super fun to make for some odd reason. I think it's the goofy eyes and antenna.

Thanks for coming back after such a long hiatus. Now that the assembly line to hurry and get things produced for stores is shut down, there will be more regular updates at DecoJenn.com 🙂

I also wanted to add that when you click on a small image, the pop up will be an even larger image. Thank you boyfriend for helping me crop and edit the pictures better 😛

Alright well that’s it for now. As always if you would like to see me make something, feel free to leave a comment below. It’s easier to figure out what to make when I have requests rather than sitting there wanting to make allll the things :p

Ciao friends!

The witch is from Wicked, this was a practice version I made prior to completing the movie poster charm.  The candy corn and the wicked witch will most likely go on a Halloween themed box of some sorts.

I meant to upload images of a couple ice cream cones I made. One of them looks very very real ^_^. But, the stupid camera didn’t focus right on the ice cream cones, so they will have to be retaken. They deserve their own post as it is.

Thanks for checking out the latest from the sweets factory. (^ _ ^)/~~サヨナラ
