Queenie the Witch is DONE!

Well, it has taken about 2 weeks...but my witch is done! I started making her in Utah and have done all the clothes during naptimes. YEAH!!!
You start out with a ball of clay and 2 glass eyes...

...make some hands and then bake them...


...start with underclothes...

then make outer clothes and a cape!

I named her "Queenie" because she started out kind of funny and sexy and ended up looking like Catherine the Great with a witch hat on! Its ok...I think they just come together completely different than you expect!

A woman of many talents! She turned out so well, you have such a great 'vision.' I don't think I could imagine how a project like that would look when it was finally done. Great job!

Look at you go! You are such a champ. I'm glad we finally moved into the blogging world... I am so glad I get to see what you are up to. The kids are absolutely darling but I wouldn't expect otherwise with their supermodel mom. Do you think I'm getting a girl? Bigger question- can I really last until May????
