A friend of mine who lives in Australia misses her Pom Jinny so much she asked me to create a pin in her likeness : ) I messed around with the design for a couple of hours and almost scrapped it as it was a huge challenge for me ~ you see....... dog pins are not my forte! This was my last attempt and I'm glad I didn't toss it into the mess up pile. I still have a ways to go before it's complete......in the photo above she's unbaked and will need a few layers of paint to help bring out her real colors but I do think her fur turned out pretty good. All the different hairs you see are individual pieces of clay....I wish I would've counted how many little pieces I used ~ let's just say there's a lot! Here's the real Jinny! Look at her cute sideways tongue! Adorable : ) Of course the sideways tongue was a must for the pin design.
As a child you could find me on my head more than on my feet so says my mom. A twirler of batons & dare devil gymnast that was me. An abundance of energy + a big back yard = a perfect match!
You could also find me in the kitchen cooking and baking with my mom. I know she probably wouldn't want me to blab this to the world but back in the 70's she took cooking lessons from Julia Child and belonged to 2 gourmet cooking clubs so you can only imagine how many different things I tasted growing up!
I am constantly inspired by the world around me and all of the wonderful talented people I find in "real life" and online that I seem to have a very long bucket list that so far only has a few drops at the bottom! May it never be filled to the top...
