Embrace Your Inner Child

Now I know I'm not alone out there in my love of polymer clay, anyone who's searched through blogland can find a billion examples of cute things made with the stuff, but I just can't seem to help myself when it comes to making tiny versions of things with it. 

Whenever I sit down to craft with grand ideas of making something truly impressive with clay, I usually find myself a good hour or so later holding some itty bitty version of a cake and squealing in delight over it. It's a weakness, I know. But look at them!! How can you not like tiny meringue pies?!

Each one is about the size of a quarter. I wind up putting them on phone charms, necklaces, bracelets, you name it. It doesn't stop with pie though. Oh no, this tiny food sickness extends to other foods too. 

Strawberries also wind up with the tiny treatment. I sculpt each one by hand and then, after baking, I lovingly paint them all. They look so happy! 

Cinnabons are not immune either. I had some fun with liquid sculpy here to make the runny syrup look. The bottoms of them reveal that they are all swirled like real cinnamon buns. 

My favorites though are the stars.

I know, I know. You're asking why these are so special. They're cute and all but not as nice as the cinnamon buns, right? But stars have always meant something to me and these hold a secret that I delight in every time I turn out the lights. 

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Seriously I thought that was lemon meringue pie and I was looking forward to the recipe !
    These are so clever, I have never seen anything like them. And they look so real, especially the pie -I love them !
    How on earth do you get time to make all these things with all the commitments you have !

  2. You are so talented!! I don't have this kind of artsy talent...the strawberries are so sweet and so are the twinkly glowing stars!
