Polymer Clay

Let me introduce you to another one of my favorite hobbies:
PolymeR clay! If you have never heard of it, it is a lot like play dough, but when you bake it, it become rock solid. The possibilities of what you could make are so endless!


Here is one of the projects I did recently just for fun, a little itty-bitty cherry pie:

Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I just want to eat it!
Here is a little size reference for you: (like my festive nails? =)


This is a project I have been wanting to show you for a while, my handmade nativity scene:
I started it about two years ago, and I am still continuing the set.


It's obviously not perfect, but knowing that I made it all with my hands is a neat feeling!


Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus in his little manger bed:


The three wise men with their gifts:


And the little sheep, my first animal for the set:
I hope you will try out this polymer clay! It is so much fun, and a great craft for kids or adults!
And there are so many options for what you make, and the colors you use! =)

************************

I also just wanted to say a Merry CHRISTmas to you! Sometimes, with all the CHRISTmas shopping I've been doing lately, it's easy to forget the real meaning of CHRISTmas, which is Christ of course. Let us never forget that!
