Fake Food and Making Stock













So I have been making all sorts of fake food lately. My daughter just loves it all and since we go to a Waldorf Parent/Child group once a week the ideas just keep coming. It is also a good thing to work on while amusing Isadora and helping her with her own art projects. I know the looks/responses I get sometimes when I answer the question of "what are you making?" are bafflement, surprise, stunned silence, curiousity. Anyways the range is growing everyday. I hope to finish my green eggs and ham soon, still haven't determined how large to make the ham. I should probably just start and go with the flow. That is usually the best answer for me.
These are a couple of things I completed in the last few weeks. When I get my ham done I shall make sure I post it.

And really I'm not just making food. I have also been working on dolls and I actually got started on a new fibre piece this week.

What I have been doing lately















Well I am not keeping on my main idea behind this blog. As it has been over a month since I posted. But here are a couple of images of what I have been up to in the last month.


The doll is for a swap from swap-bot that was titled Felt Dolls it was sent to Italy and I really hope 'Junkolove' likes her when she arrives. She was inspired by Tim Burton, she's a combination of Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline his newest movie. She's not quite what I expected her to look like but she seemed to just develop. That is probably the best way for a doll to be.


The next image is a miniature cake that I made for 'dbowie' for a Tag from a group I belong to called Fake Food. It had to be something for a tea party, so this is what I created. I suspect I may of got carried away once again. But oh well I do have that tendency.
