I haven't taken any pictures of my crafts for a LONG time.
But I am proud to say that I am -amazing- at making betta magnets out of polymer clay. I make gnomes, horses, camels, rodents, etc out of polymer clay, too. I sell at craft fairs $$$$$$$$$
I also make Harry Potter-style wands out of branches that I take from trees outside. It takes me about 1/2 hour to whittle down the stick perfectly, another 1/2 hour to sculpt the handle and add details, 20 minutes to bake it, then 10 minutes to paint it. They're beautiful! lol I should take pictures....
Anyway, here are some blah drawings I did in India ink.
Well, the first one was done in regular pen&ink, the rest are in India ink....
Also the last photo is a birdhouse I sanded down, painted, and mounted on a post and a family of wrens were made in there ^___^
But a hawk attacked the house, it got knocked down, so the wrens moved to one of the 2 birdhouses hanging from our roof above the deck. So cute, they're really tame!

I'm trying to plan out a few more projects but I'm lacking funds for the canvas.
Thank you so much! I was surprised at how easy it was. I'm the one who makes my niece's hairpieces but I usually do very simple "everyday wear" things. These things are just sooo expensive to buy!

Ok so one project I want to do is make a 3 or 4 panel Asian style painting, or something similar too it (maybe something like paper cut outs on scrapbook paper and glued down?). I'e been looking on the webs for a design I like (or is even do-able) but I'm not having much luck. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas as to what or how I should do things
