Custom Order Christmas Elf Cake Topper

Standard

So this cute Christmas Elf cake topper is the latest creation from my craft room.  The cake topper was sculpted by hand in Premo polymer clay.  This one was a custom order for a customer in Australia and he will be the centerpiece on top of her Christmas cake.  I’m honored whenever one of my creations takes center stage!

This was a really fun project and has certainly gotten me into the holiday spirit (even though it’s not quite Halloween yet- LOL).  This whimsical elf was my first cake topper outside of World of Warcraft characters.  I really enjoyed creating this one!  The elf wears a bright green tunic with a red collar  and belt.  His tights are striped a cheerful red and green and he wears red elf slippers.

As you can see, he’s a very happy Christmas elf, with bright blue eyes and a great big smile. 🙂

The cake topper measures about 6 inches wide and 7 1/2 inches tall to the tip of the elf’s bright red hat tipped with a gold bell.  The elf is holding a candy cane and the cake he sits on is decorated with red ribbon and red and white candies (all sculpted from polymer clay).

What a great project to start the holiday season off with!

First Post on the New Blog

Standard

While I may not be new to blogging I AM new to WordPress.  Since I can no longer log in to my original blog at http://creativecrittersblog.blogspot.com due to email address issues , I thought I’d give WordPress a try and create a whole new blog.  I figure it’s just about spring (here in Arizona anyway), so this is a good time for new starts.

Since I’m still exploring WordPress and figuring things out you’ll just have to be patient with me while I stumble around and make mistakes for a bit 😉 LOL  This blog will basically be a continuation of the original, which still has lots of great content available.  I intend to post about my creative adventures sculpting in polymer clay, sewing and knitting stuffed animals, making jewelry, and other forays into the wonderful world of art and creativity.  Of course I’ll also be posting about my pets!

There’s Ziggi, the half Australian Cow Dog, Half German Short Haired Pointer (and my personal guard dog).

And my kitties, Calcifer, a sweet, shy Maine Coone cat, and Ginko, my tubby grey and white clown of a cat.

And then there are “The Girls”, six Rhode Island Red hens that follow me around like I’m their Mother Hen!

So I think that’s about it for the first post.  I’ll keep it short and sweet until I really get the hang of this site.  So far, I like it =)
