Back in the {Sculpting} Saddle Again...

It's been way too long since I've been sculpting regularly.  Most of my day goes to this little cutie:

I'm working on a new sculpt, this male below, and then here are a bunch of WIP pics of various dolls that are waiting oh so patiently....

That's funny...that last guy looks quite startled.  Been playing with premade eyes...and it's still a work in progress.  I'll have to close those lids a bit, or sculpt him with a huge spider beside him!

Do you Ravelry?

This site is so fun for knitting and crochet.  I keep a photo journal of all my fiber projects there, and highly recommend it.  You can find me here. 

Hmmm...I never thought I'd have a little baby, and a 16 year old.  Steph's approaching adulthood, and Jordan is just getting started with life.  It's fun to watch their different stages.

Knitting Progress....

Trying my hand at 2 at a Time Socks using this book.  So far, it makes for a mess of yarn and knitting cables...but it's interesting.  I'd like to see if I can actually finish these socks.  Yeah...two different colors.  That's to keep you from getting too confused.  Hmmm....I'll probably need more help than that!

And then I made this baby bib, out of cotton yarn.

Is it just me or is it hard to write between pics with the new blogger style?

So I'll just comment here....the pink is a new summer sweater I'm working on, and the the stripey zigzag is for a pillow...and that's crochet, not knitting.

Then a cool crochet flower, some clovers, and granny squares in some fun, springy colors.

And then the cabled baby vest for Jordan...that is still way too big, but at least it's done...minus a button or two.  And lastly, his baby blanket.  About half done, and one of my first experiments with crochet.

Jordan meets Chocolate cookie

Up to lately...

I found Jasen with Jordan and he'd given his little brother a Keebler Elf cookie.  Jordan's first experience with chocolate.  He looks as shocked as I was.

Next, we've been working on some Harry Potter wands.  We went through all the movies over Spring Break, got Harry Potter scars (you may have seen us decked out on Facebook...even Jordan had one), then Jasen bought some hair dye and he and Justin now sport Harry Potter hair, so the wands were the final touch.

I love it when you snap pics and they have no idea you even have the camera out.  Jasen helped me get them painted using the supplies shown above.  Just wooden dowels with some Apoxy Sculpt (but you could use Premo clay).  They actually turned out pretty cool, and very woody looking.

Jordan was so darn cute with that cookie.
