No? Me neither.
Guess what, that’s totally normal. Unless you’re a monster (yep, quite a nice way to detect them by the way), you can’t hear that “delightful” sound… that sweet melody, tooootally out of tunes: the sound of the “fish choir”…
But it’s not a big deal to not hear it…I mean, look at those faces, it’s like you can almost hear them!
I agree, I can spot some not singing at all or just pretending…but hey, we can’t blame them… We’ve all done the same 🙂
If you want to see some more, I invite you here…
And if you feel like knowing a bit more about the silly fishes, and in the same time discovering plenty of very talented polymer clay artists, I invite you to read Polymer Clay Daily from Cynthia Tinapple 🙂
Have a great Sunday people!
Did I forgot to mention the winter sales? Maybe.
Using the code : WINTERSALE on your order, you get a 25% discount per items. Until the end of the month.
So if you want to get rid of witches, ogres, spiders and other bugs, go and fetch a mobile.
Here are the mobiles currently in the shop:
Sleep tight 🙂
I’ve been thinking about what I’ve been told, once…
I’ve been told about that beautiful little girl who slept with sunglasses in order of not being seen by the crocodiles which were sleeping under her bed in the night time… They couldn’t see her because of her sunglasses and thus she could sleep tightly. She also tried with an umbrella, but I believe that sleeping with an umbrella must have been quite tricky…
My critters are experts in all sorts of nightmares, ghosts, witches, monsters and so on. And that, thanks to their big eyes, glowing in the dark and scaring away nightmares. But I notice that some of them were actually more specialized in certain kind of things, like for exemple, an attack of flamingos will be more efficient on witches, since they kind of have the same ” crooked nose”. Witches have then, a tendency to think, that they are related. Then they can be approached easier, and pinched heavily.
Another example with the Pelicans. They are very good at scaring away ogres. And their technic is also quite simple. They use to keep a LOT of food in their gaping maw (yes, that’s why that part of their body looks quite big). Food which will attract ogres… because everybody knows that ogres think with their stomach, right? And then, just like the witches, they will end up pinched heavily…
Though the “sunglasses-trick” might have been efficient, I wish I had at that time a set of octopuses ready… Yes, the best weapon for crocodiles, it’s octopuses. They can tie up the big crocodiles’ mouth with their long tentacles and then tickle the rest of the crocodiles. Very very efficient. They usually don’t last.
But kids, don’t you worry. Soon, plenty of new mobiles will be available: geese anti-monster, pelicans anti-ogre, flamingos anti-witch and so on. And you will be certain that you won’t have to use any sunglasses or umbrellas to sleep peacefully.
Sleep tight 🙂
And now it’s hanging. I wish they will keep quiet tonight, but I don’t think they will. But that’s what happen when you put together 36 geese and 6 flamingos. And that’s also thanks to that, they can keep away monsters, crocodiles, ghosts or whatever wants to scare kids in the night time. Big eyes glowing in the dark, sharpened beaks…if I was a monster, I would run away…and they do.
…to wish you all a happy new year! (At least in France, we have until the end of January to wish people a happy new year.. so here you go)
And as a good resolution for 2015, I decided to stop stopping clay. I’m not sure I know why sometimes it’s just difficult for me to create stuff in clay. Maybe I get scared of this feeling of frustration when you’re not satisfied of what you’ve made. This is an awful feeling. And you get caught in your daily routine, and you find yourself 1000 excuses not to “clay” again. And the worse (and that’s where I really don’t understand myself) it’s when people ask me to make a mobile for them…Instead of comforting me in the idea that I should pursue, I stop. (And yes, I’ll talk to my shrink about that :D).
Anyway. I’m back in business. Hopefully for a long time. But so far I have ideas, so things should work out.
And I’ve been working a lot lately… I have a lot of geese waiting for some love… I like to take pics before or right after the baking step, but it takes a while until I get the mobile done… There are plenty of steps after the oven people… Like sanding down, pencils, second round of baking, drilling, choosing the driftwood (finding the driftwood…), assembling the whole thing and taking the last pics. So a pic now, doesn’t mean a mobile tomorrow. Anyway, I’m writing too much. So here you go for the latest babies:
And an hairy one :
This is such a good new don’t you think? Ooooooooh yes it is… After 3 month (maybe more?) without new mobiles, that’s a shame! I know I know… But I was a bit disrupted, you know what? BECAUSE SOMEBODY IS TRYING TO COPYING WHAT I AM DOING!! And this is just unacceptable… Of course people forget that each piece of my “collection” are protected, and you can’t reproduce them. And people forget that it’s a piece of you, you put in your creation, this is because of what you are that you do what you do, and that gives to your creation a soul… Of course I’m going to show you a picture of this crappy thing, and I will be very glad if each person who are reading this post, can show this post and this picture to everybody! Like this all the earth will know what this person does. Because I’m nice, I’m not going to reveal the name… But if it starts again, I’ll do it! UNDERSTOOD?
No more suspense, here we go: Grrrrrrrrh!
I know, I know, like me you’re disgusted… I just comfort myself by wondering which soul you can put in that stuff??
Anyway, I forget the essential, the shop is open, and that makes me happy!
La boutique est ouverte!!! C’est une sacrée bonne idée non? Après 3 mois (peut-être même plus) sans ajouter de nouveaux mobiles dans la boutique… Mais il faut savoir qu’il y avait une bonne raison à tout ça… J’étais un peu tourmentée, car je me suis aperçue que QUELQU’UN AVAIT ESSAYé DE COPIER MES BESTIOLES!!!!! Et ça, c’est tout simplement inacceptable… Il ne faut pas oublier que chaque pièce que je modèle est protégée! Et les gens oublient parfois que c’est une part de vous que vous mettez dans vos créations, que de part votre histoire, votre parcours, voilà ce que vous êtes capable de faire et de raconter, et c’est tout cela qui donne une âme à vos créations. Bien sur je vais vous montrer cette horrible chose, et je serais ravie si chacun d’entre vous qui lisez ces lignes, puissiez faire circuler ce post que toute la terre entière sache ce que cette personne fait! Parce que je suis quelqu’un de bien, je ne donnerai pas de nom, mais si cette personne recommence, je le ferai! COMPRIS?
Sans plus attendre, l’objet du délit : Grrrrrrrrh!
Je sais, je sais, comme moi vous êtes écoeurés… La seule chose qui me réconforte c’est de me dire “mais qu’elle âme on peut bien mettre la dedans!?”
Enfin, j’en oublie l’essentiel, la boutique est OUVERTE! Et ça, ça me rend heureuse!
