Alot of Love: My first Tutorial!

My awesome lover got my flowers for no reason! So I made him alot of love.

Now I will show you how I made alot of love.

Step 1:
Make ugly oblong ball of tin/aluminum/metal foil

 Step 2: Roll out big white blob of polymer clay.

Step 3: Coat ugly metal oblong ball in white polymer clay

 Step 4: Roll it around until the seam is gone and it's good and ugly like a weird white brain. Be careful and if you see metal popping out, cover it in more clay and roll it around until the seam is gone. 

Step 5: Add short stubby little legs

Step 6: Smash a big ball on one end of your oblong, pinch two bits up for the horns, pry a wiggly edge out for the mouth, add a tooth and two eyes.

Step 7: Make a quick heart shape cane, cut and stratigically cover your alot in hearts. 
(I used pink first and then a layer of red on his back.)

 Step 8?: Scratch the alot like crazy with long strokes so he looks shaggy.

Step Apple:(not pictured) Bake according to package instructions. Mine was a fat alot so I did 20 min on 275 (little circle for degrees) F!

 I used a colored pencil around his eyes and in his mouth for sleepy looking shading, a sharpie for his square pupils and a yellow? orange? marker for his horns and eyes

Step Goodbye: 
Watch as alot of love wanderes back into the wild after you release him after his rehabilitation.

Goodbye beautiful fellow. Have a great life and make lots of baby alots, of love. 

 . . . This step is optional.

The art of Momming

Moms learn how to do many odd thing.

I open the bathroom door with my feet. I put my dog's leash on with one hand, and I wiggle my feet into my boots standing up.

We learn these things because one of our arms is Baby's home.
My child LIVES on my arm.

Some thing, however, I have not managed to learn how to do with one hand, like knitting, dishes, cleaning the ferret's cage, cleaning the tank and making polymers.
This is sad because I either want or need to do some of those things.

I usually do one of those things per day, often while my daughter naps from about 10 am to 1 pm.

Having said that, I did polymers!(And cleaned my fish's tank.) Which means I need to do dishes and clean the ferret cage. :-/ (<--- That's a face.)

I even got my roomate in on it! He's making a raptor! I'm making more babies . . . out of polymer.

I think I might learn how to use my hubby's camcorder and DO ALL THE (polymer food) TUTORIALS from ToniEllison AAAAAAAAAND GentlemanBunny . . . a bunch of her videos are private now. :( I may be too late!

I will do what I can.

Here is a ridiculously cute orange staring egg my daughter made for Easter THAT I ATE!
It was good.

Painting House I've Been

 Epic Kitchen View (plus Dog tail )
 Our Watercooler
Myyyy cookbookshelf!

It was painted in a rush with total disregard to the ceiling!! Bwahaha! But I took care of the floor, cause I love it.

In other news:
I found my hot glue gun and therefore worked on the Barbie couch!
My progress so far.

 The seat is nearly level. I give me a B. No, B-


Some other piece.

Also I found my "Tiny Knitting Box" 
 Buffalo Joe was there with his sweater vest.
Also there was an unfinished sleeve for him!
. . . Joe says my red fingernail polish is "so 80's Honey."

 I added Pink to this tiny scarf.

 Then I realized I better work on my person sized project.

Busy times.

bye bye for now,
