Fantasy Land

I spend a lot of time when I'm not in my crafting area dreaming about what I'd be making if I were in my crafting area.  I call this daydreaming brainstorming.  My day job is about as fun as having a root cananl (I type pretrial reports for people who get arrested, anything from petty theft to murder, so I try to keep a seperate block of my brain focused on more pleasant things).  I think partly due to the nature of the job, I've taken my imagination to other areas.  This last few weeks I've been pipe dreaming of a sort of quiet little area in the forest where I met a little fellow named Bilpin (whose name means Forest in Burmese, if I remember correctly.)  Here's a peek at Bilpin's first time on a swing....

Bilpin is made of polymer clay (except for the flowers which are made of cold porcelain) and comes with everything seen (or scene) here.  He's ready for adoption in my Etsy shop and comes with the main tree, three flowers and a seperate tree.  I love to hear your comments/feedback!

Focus

 For years I've been trying different things in crafts - I need 16 arms and a MUCH larger craft area to accomplish all my desires. :) 
I've analyzed my diversity in crafts and found that no matter what I try, I always go back to clay, in some form or another. There's something about working with a squishy, moldable medium that enthrals me. Even as a kid, all I wanted to play with was Play-Doh and mom's scrap pie dough. Wonder what an anaylist would have to say about that...

Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
