    These have been my most recent hobby!
    I started making them over a year ago and people really seem to like them.
    I have been working with polymer clay for quite a few years and fairy babies just fit right into my intrests!
    I just wanted to share! Enjoy!

    If anyone is interested in buying one... I have an auction up on ebay right now for one!
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/OOAK-2-Fairy-Baby-/281052529967?pt=US_Dolls_Bears_Toys&hash=item417009452f
    I wanted to see how they would sell on there. (Started the auction at .99 so you could get a good deal!)
    I sell them for $6 each
    If you would like to order one directly from me PM me
    I can work with you on colors and postions they are placed in

    What do create with clay? I would love to see yours!!!

    I love the one with the feather wings between the pine cones. I could imagine something like that in a weatherproof version hidden in a quiet corner of the yard. Wouldn't that be just so precious to find as a kid exploring the yard?

    Under one of those big concrete toadstools...

    My yard is currently nothing but lawn, working on taking atleast half of it out for a garden. I will have cute things like this!

    Tomtom... You might like to plant some rose of sharon... they are trees but dont get really big... and they bloom so pretty. They will add a bit of shade and the "garden" look to the yard (without all the hard work)

    Dragon... Thanks!

    I got an order from a local shop owner and from an artist on ebay!!! SWEET!

    Aw congrats! I'm a freelance graphic artist myself and it just gives such a warm fuzzy feeling whenever someone purchases something you made [​IMG]

    Okay... The lady that owns the local shop ordered 10 fairies!!!... When she saw them and held them she ordered 20 MORE!!! WOW!!!

    Look waht I made today!
    I am still getting use to the paints because I have to paint a very thin layer and bake... layer... bake. I want to see results right away and that is not how it works :/
    So she is not perfect, but I think she is cute!
    I sculpted her from clay, too.
    I still have to make her cloth body...
