My Internet is back!

Sorry for the long pause on the blog. My internet has been crazy for a few weeks and every time I try to go on it drops. I call for help, it gets fixed but later it goes AGAIN. Very hard to get any work done.
Now that I've vented, I'm working on the sets for my kids book as well as some of the characters.
I am making the majority of it in 1/6 scale with a few pieces in 1/12th miniature scale. I think I'm going to need a bigger place to work in, lol. Are you reading this Hunny??

Here are a just a few pieces of the chess board my daughter(who's graduating high school next month!!!YAY!!) and I worked on for her senior art project. I was so proud to see her working in clay again.
(Bad pictures were taken on my old I phone, I still need a great new camera, any suggestions??)
Here it is her homage to the Alice in Wonderland movie of the 1950's.
She did the majority of the sculpting, I tweaked it here and there, she painted while I blushed skin and we costumed and wigged together. I showed her how to make the armatures and mix the clay. We then built a black base, covered it with miniature faux grass and flowers like a garden and placed the blue and white board in the center of the garden.
My kids stopped asking to sculpt or draw and paint with mom when they became teenagers, art wasn't fun anymore, so this was really special to me.

I realized I miss teaching.
As soon as I have some free time, I think I will teach sculpting and crafts again.

My best to all!!

Hi,My name is Michelle. I was browsing through blogs and stumbled upon yours. Im enjoying all your beautiful, fun sculptured figures! I noted that you asked about cameras and I have been using a Sony DSC-H3 8.1 and my daughter uses a 10.1 (a newer model). I love my camera and will definitely upgrade in the same style but more pixels (8.1 to 10.1 or more) Visit me if you like Im at I make soft sculptured dolls :) Michelle
