After plunking out what seemed to be 'carbon copies' of my Mothers Day coffrets for all the family, it was time to sit down and make something for Bella and Alex, whose birthdays will be here before I know it.
So, sitting at the clay table this morning with no real intention (sorry Victoria, sometimes things just have to be spontaneous), I found myself with some little curls of scrap clay, and I just figured that a young girly-girl like Bella might prefer something in pink rather than the staid coppery-bronze I've been working with the past while. I made the "stamp" for the image so quickly, I even amazed myself. First TRY! The eyes are a little deep, but I think I can live with them. I used the same method for the box that I'd taught last weekend at Poco. I'll tuck a little something inside and then I'll send it in the mail hopefully in plenty of time for her special day.
As for Alex, his little gift will have to take a little more planning. I do have an idea, but whether it will work remains to be seen. If it turns out, successfully, I'll post it here. If not, well, there's always those cool socks I've already bought that he can wear for his soccer games. (Doesn't seem fair, does it?)
