And then there was more....

LOL...You know me! I can't just make one! The one in the middle is the first one I made....and then I added some more texture to the beards of the next batch...I think they look much better!

Then I got to thinking....scary thought! I know! But I figured Santa was gonna need an elf...so I made this guy.

......and I had this guy in my lap the whole time! Although I must say, he kept me nice and warm:)

Then I made some more snowmen......like the bright white, just don't like the new noses...

Then I found my sparkly red! ........so...I made a few more Santa's! These don't have heads yet cause I wanted to show you what they looked like before the beard covered up all my detail work.

I find the best way to do them is a few at a time.....You actually have to stop in between the white and red and wash you hands so your not making your white, pink! That first snowman took me a few hours to do....now I can make a 5 in a few hours:) ....and I'd probably work faster if I turned the TV off......

Then after staring at the front of this book for hours, I decided to make a penguin....Thinking he might get a Santa hat too at some point!

.....my tub is getting fuller!!

...and considering the first elf I made was a little top heavy....I made a few more of those, too. But they have a 'pig' look to them....so I'll have to think on that....maybe if they were to get a Santa hat as well they wouldn't look like pigs....But then again, they might just look like pigs with Santa Hats on.....LOL! I think it's the nose....or maybe those ears??

What about a 'skinny' Santa? He's not as plump as the rest! But still Cute!!

I love my little Christmas Army.....

Wonder what else I can make??
....until next time.....

Katie wow you have been super busy! I adore them all, those Santas are just too cute, even skinny Santa! My favs are the penguins as I love penguins, I got a big cuddly one for Chrismtas!! They are all super,you should put little holes in them so they can be hung on the tree!! Or you could make earings from them, even more festive!

Katie, Love the Santas and others. Now....8th photo down....to the right of the three santas there is a figure that appears to be in an inner tube? What is that one? I love the pattern on whatever the inner tube thingie is.

Katie this is wonderful! I really like what you've done, especially the penguins.
Like you, I'm still feeling a little christmassy. The tree is still standing proud and I'm not gonna take it down for another couple of weeks!
I'm wishing you a cheerful, healthy and loving 2010!

Katie, they are adorable! (I have that book and love it! =D) On the snowmen...try making your 'noses' and prebaking them...then use a stylus or needle tool to poke a hole in their heads, add a drip of liquid clay and plunk in the noses! Helps to not smoosh the noses! :-) I love your santas and elves. (maybe just a touch smaller on the noses, but then again why can't piggies dress-up for Christmas too! lol.
