Christmas, Halloween, and Strawberries??

 A puppy in a Christmas present ornament. :) I had this idea in my head for awhile and finally brought it to life!  The first Christmas ornament for my etsy shop.

This is like my other teddy bear pendants, but Christmas style! I had a lot of fun making the Santa hat. I love making them for some reason.

 I have seen these around...and I know its not completely original, but MINE has glitter on it ;)  Sad thing is...all my items I put glitter on..they don't show up well in the photographs!

This one was based off a graphic I made awhile back, and I really like how it turned out :)  I used metal wire in the stems, so that it wont break off.

 I had leftover rainbow from the rainbow cake, so I decided to make a rainbow pendant out of it.  And then I added glitter.  I'm becoming a little glitter-obsessed now ;)

 I was really excited to make these ones, and I finally did them.  And they turned out so good! :)  Peppermint cupcakes are the cutest things ever!

 This one was based off a painting I did in college.  Its not a pendant or earrings, this one is just for decoration! And he turned out so cute!

 This cute cherry blossom cake slice is based off my wedding cake :)  I had such a beautiful wedding cake, and it also tasted dang good.  I cant say the same thing for this one though ;)  But its pretty!

 How can anyone resist these peanut butter cup earrings?? I'm surprised how realistic they turned out.  I almost want to eat them myself.

 I'm getting on a cupcake making spree now. Watch out, there will be more. Lots more.  This one is simple, but cute.  Sparkly cupcakes with a pink heart placed on the side.

 Another ornament!  This one is a cute little penguin, all ready for Christmas!  He turned out much cuter than I thought he would.  Its going to be hard letting go of this one.

 This is one of my favorites now.  Its a pumpkin fairy house.  It was so fun to make!  I'm so greedy, I kept one of the ones I made. ;)

 Pink swirl cupcake earrings, with sparkles just barely visible on the camera.  In the future when I figure out ice cream, I'll do pink swirls like these ones!

 So I made my first strawberry cane! And I'm so happy with the way it turned out.  Canes can be such a pain, but I'm getting way better at making them.  One of my creations I absolutely had to make was a strawberry cake.  I want to eat it...

 aaaaaaaand strawberry cupcakes! :D  (with glitter of course)

 And of course, I cant make strawberry cake without making individual cake slices.  I think one of my favorite things to do with polymer clay jewelry now is texturize cake.  Time consuming, but fun!

 I also made strawberry waffles, and the syrup came out more messy than I wanted...but at least they look real :)  Someone will give them a nice home!

This one isn't for sale (I don't sell anything copyrighted)  But I just wanted to show off my cute little Thor.  I made him for my husband. (which means I own him too. hehehehehe.)

Here is my deviantart in which you can visit him:

And just fyi, I'm making another cane right now:  a banana cane! So keep you eyes open for strawberry banana combinations in the next week or so! :)

My first real sale!

I'm so excited right now, because I've made my first real sale! :)  (the other one was from a friend, so I don't count it, haha)  Bye bye banana earrings, I hope you love your new home!

Here's some new awesome stuff I made!   I'm having such a blast!!

 Panda earrings! :D Yes...I know they are 'generic'. But I make what I love...and I like pandas and wanted to make them this way  so XP.

I love foxes.  So, I made a chibi version of them! :D  Expect more fox things from me in the future, this is not the last you will see of foxes!

I couldn't help myself....I needed to make some cute little fruits. This mean lady told me they were generic but I don't think so! I put love into these babies!

Caramel dipped apple earrings :)  The green turned out a little more saturated than I expected, but that's ok! They are still cute! :)

 Happy pears! Ok, honestly, I don't like these much. I used clay on the faces instead of paint...and I just don't like them as much as my other ones. Hopefully they find a home!

 Lemon earrings! :)  I thought the faces were appropriate. They are so sour, they can feel it!!

 Cute orange earrings!  These were fun to make. I liked the calming, montonus task of making the indentations.

 BAM! Sold. Sorry guys. I'll try and make some more.  Cute little bananas :D  I tried to make these ones more realistic. Just a plain, yellow one with no green or brown seemed....boring and dead.

 Pink music note earrings! :D  These were originally for a set that was going to come with a pendant of a panda with didn't turn out so well. So just music notes for now!

 Carrot cake slice earrings.  Oh my.  When I made these, I wanted carrot cake SO BAD. I loooove carrot cake. :)

 Ladybug on a leaf pendant. Oh how clever I thought I was when I came up with this one...then I realized Its a pretty common idea. I don't care XP ...mine's better anyways! ;D

 I had to make carrot cake cupcackes after I made the carrot cake slice.  I just loved making those little carrots on top. So cute :D

 I couldn't hold in my desire to make Christmas jewelry, so I kind of exploded with some Christmas jewelry. This one is a mint chocolate pendant :D

 Little candy canes in a jar :)  Aren't they cute?  So little....

 Peppermint candies in a jar pendant.  I couldn't help myself...I just had to add glitter. I thought it made it look better!

 Christmas truffle!  I'm quite proud for coming up with this one. Although, I'd never eat it in real life.  I like how  red and white looks, but I don't like eating peppermint!

 Peppermint chip chocolate cookie earrings!  Makes me want to make some chocolate crinkle cookies...those things are heavenly.

Swedish Jelly Roll earrings.  I've never had a jelly roll, but while I was making these I really wanted to try one!!  For some reason they make me think of those treats the evil queen gives to the boy in Narnia.

Getting closer...

I'm almost to my 50th listing mark!!  That will be halfway to my goal! Yippee!!  I've been making jewelry like nobodies business!!  I sure hope all my hard work pays off!    On a side note, I also purchased the Avengers on blueray :)  It's officially my favorite movie right now.  Probably will be for a looooong time.

Here's what I've been working on!   Feedback/Ideas are always appreciated!

Pancakes with butter and syrup earrings!  The syrup took me forever to figure out!  But I think I got it accurate :)

 Eggs and bacon mix n' match set.  Perfect for breakfast lovers :)

Cute Teddy Bear Pendant!  This one was inspired by my sister.  She nicknamed her boyfriend all sorts of bear names, so I decided to make this cute pendant based off the thought.  I had in mind that it could be a gift to a girlfriend when I made it.

 Blue whale kawaii earrings. I had a lot of fun making these. Aren't they so cute :)  I gave a pair as a gift to my niece and she LOVES them!

 Jack O' Lantern earrings, which were painted with glow in the dark paint...but they don't exactly glow.  Maybe I'll try holding them up to the light and see how that works out.

 Lightning bolt earrings! I wanted to do a few earrings that were simple, bright, and bold! I love how they turned out!

 Simple, bold, heart earrings :)   So cute!  They remind me of Sailor Moon for some reason.

 Watermelon earrings!  I used different shades of green in the rine.  I love how that effect turned out.

 Cute lil' popsicle earrings.  These ones were based off of a fimo cutter I got at Michaels.  Them I jazzed them up and added my own style :)    I imagine these to be cherry flavored. Thats my fav!

 Rainbow hearts in a jar pendants.  So my mom has a bunch of these cork bottle pendants so I made some cute pendants!  I didn't noticed some of them were different sizes, so when I made some of these rainbow ones, I had to make separate listings for the bigger and smaller bottles because I already had glued the corks down. Silly me!

 Chocolate dipped strawberry fortune cookie pendant/earrings.  Based off of my reception favors I had when I was married. They were so DELICIOUS. I can't express how amazing they were...  I cant remember where I got them..somewhere online that specializes in fortune cookies.  And I got custom messages inside too! (the reception favors, not these pendants ;)

 Chocolate drizzle doughnuts, available in chocolate, and strawberry!  These ones were made after I was thinking about my sister's boyfriend, and how much he LOVES doughnuts.  They turned out so cute!!!  I might do some Halloween Themed ones...and some Christmas ones.  The opportunities are endless!

 Cherry Blossom Pendant...did I mention that my wedding reception was cherry blossom themed?  I absoultely LOVE cherry blossoms.  So I decided to make a cherry blossom design. I got so frustrated with it, that I just smashed everything down with a rolling pin.  But then that actually made it look cool. Funny how things turn out :)

 Eyeballs in a jar pendant.  Creepy, yet cool.  It was pretty frustrating making those little eyeballs. Its very hard to paint on something so teeny tiny.  I think it turned out great though!

 Cute little ghost earrings.  I wanted them to be simple. Simple ghosts look the coolest, in my opinion.  I used sparkly white fimo, but you can't really tell in the picture.

 The first in the bitten chocolate pendant series. These were a lot of fun to make! :)

 Bitten peanut butter chocolate pendant. mmmmm....

 Chocolate drizzled heart pendant.

 This bitten chocolate pendant is square shaped, if you are thinking I just posted the first one again ;)

 I made some kokeshi doll pendants.  Kokeshi dolls are Japanese dolls and they are so awesome!

 Dragon wrapped around a bottle pendant.  This little dragon is Japanese, like the one in the movie Spirited Away, so he doesn't have any wings.

 Cute little bat earrings.  I put jewels in their eyes to give them more of a spooky look...and jewels are just cool too ;)

 Another kokeshi doll pendant, this one has a flower in her hair.

 Halloween cat earrings. I think these ones are really fun, because I used orange paint for their facial parts, which really makes them pop.

 Muddy pig earrings.  What pig isn't complete without mud?   :)

 These cute robot pendants are based off of a design I had made on cafepress. I think it really translated well into a physical design.

 Cute little unicorn pendant with a little white heart marking.  This one turned out cuter than I thought it would!

 Pink frosted star cookie earrings, with white sprinkles.  As you can probably tell from my previous designs, pink is my favorite color.  I love pairing it with blue, or white.  I might do a rainbow series with these cookies and sell them as charms.  We shall see!

 Deer pendant and leaf earring set.  I thought these matched perfectly together, and I'm pretty proud of my deer. I worked so hard on her! I almost don't want to sell her because shes so adorable.

 Glittery hearts in a jar pendant.  I thought glitter went really well with these little pink hearts.  Its almost like a wish in a jar!

Another Kokeshi doll pendant. This one has pink hair, because pink hair is awesome.
