Roses, Roses, Roses

I had a clay class at my house last night and we created roses, rosebuds, and leaves.





I created this one in class with the ladies and Kim won the drawing and got to take it home.



While our clay pieces were baking in the oven we had make your own tacos and for dessert ~
Chocolate covered strawberries! YUM! These were the biggest, sweetest strawberries I've ever purchased ~ got them right when they were going out on the shelf so they were fresh and everyone in the package was in great shape - which usually isn't the case when you purchase strawberries.

I've added the Rose box to my art blog here

Kat, you've inspired me to get back on track with my SPRING CLEANING! Before we know it it will be summer and too hot to do any kind of deep cleaning.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hey Girlfriend, love the clay roses, and they all did such a great job. My students really enjoyed doing the clay when we did it. I will need to do another one in the near future. I can't believe that I've not been in the studio all month long. Man oh man, I really need to get in there and get back into it.

Love ya,

Hi Sandy! I blog with your sister Linda....
she is such a precious person!
My 12 year old daughter has been making things from Polymer clay for about 2 years now. May I ask...are these rose sculptures made of that type of clay?
She hasn't made anything this large before..but I cannot wait to show all these gorgeous box toppers to her! Do you have any other pictures of things you have made??? I know she'd love to see them!!!
Have a wonderful week!
Sweet Blessings!
