So the only reason I wanted to post something today was because it was 10/10/10. We had a fantastic crafty weekend, complete with a Dollar Store run!

We did a Family Craft which was great!

We also started on the eyeball wreath but the clay isn’t dry yet so we couldn’t finish it (my daughter was quite disappointed with this).

I also made my second batch of paper clay which went MUCH BETTER! I pureed all the toilet paper in the blender a little bit at a time and the process took some time but the end result was FANTASTIC! I also put everything on a paper screen and got as much water out of the paper pulp as possible (it looked like crumbled Feta). I then mixed the everything (expect the pulp) and added the paper pulp a little at a time with a hand held electric mixer. The batch is much smoother and I can’t wait to build with it!

This weekend was so much fun and I can’t wait to start sculpting something that I really have not done since college. It is very exciting to experiment and hopefully I will turn out some pretty cool pieces very soon.
