I'm truly sorry for the advertisements in the Playlist music! They came along for the ride, and since it's all for free, I can't really put up a fight about it, can I? I do NOT endorse some/many/all(?) of these products, so please accept my apologies, and try to ignore them. They're only about 30 seconds each.

Too bad blog posts are backwards; were it otherwise, this would make more sense. I made three hippocamps as gifts, and would not post photos of them anywhere until they were received by their new owners. Well, all have found their way to their new homes, so they can be shown here. This one is actually the last delivery to be confirmed, and so the last one posted, but will be read in reverse. The yellow and purple hippocamps are also part of this project. They were a joy to do, and seem to have made the recipients happy. I hope so, because the kindnesses extended to me by these wonderful people made ME very happy! I'm sure I cannot repay them enough, but little hipps are a good start, maybe.

A second hippocamp has found its way to its new home, so I can post a pic of this one now. I used papers instead of fabric for the ones I've just finished. The bodies are Sculpey Ultra-light polymer clay, and there are various paints, glitters, and other embellishments, all over.

Been working on many things, just not finishing until lately. Finished some hippocamps, only one of which I can show now. The Retreat piece is inching along nicely, almost done. Hagrid has skin at last, and the neglected thestral will get some more attention soon. Here is ONE finished hippocamp, given to a very dear friend, who shall for at least now, remain anonymous. It just doesn't photograph really well; there are some sparkles that the camera couldn't capture. It does fairly scintillate!
I've also started a new piece, heaven help me! A rather LARGE one, inspired by a dream I had some time ago. You'll see........ ;)
