Peggy's Arts and Craft Projects

I'm an artsy-craftsy type of person.  I like to make things, so I thought I'd fix this page up to show off some of my work.

Back around the 1st of November, I decided to make myself a snowman out of styrofoam balls and Plaster of Paris.  As it turns out, I didn't stop with the snowman!  Actually, I started another whole project entirely by accident....all because I decided to use polymer clay to make the snowman's nose, eyes, mouth, and buttons.  Here is my snowman.

I think my snowman turned out pretty well.  Don't pay any attention to the date on the photo.  I couldn't find my digital camera, so I grabbed the new movie camera to take the pics.  I just haven't had time to program the darned thing, yet.  Also, although the pic was filmed in color, it turned into black and white when I converted it to snapshots, and I have no idea why!

I gave this statue to my brother for Christmas because he and Daddy were so close and because I know how much my brother loved Daddy.  Also, I had never really given Jimmie anything "special" that I had made, so I thought he would like to have this reminder of Daddy.  I was delighted to see that he recognized it as looking like Daddy right away!
 
So...now, I have a new hobby!  And, all because I was just messing around with a block of polymer clay...just to see what I could do with it!  Wow!  What fun!

When I started making the snowman, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into!  Oh!  The snowman was really very easy to do....it's just that it led to another bigger project.
 
It all started when I made the snowman's nose, eyes, mouth, and "buttons" out of polymer clay.  Well, I had this big hunk of clay left over, so I started playing around with it.  Before I knew it, I had created this statue which just happened to look a lot like my precious Daddy.
