The first piece is one I showed in progress awhile back but it sat here just waiting for the finishing inspiration. Those finishing touches came in the form of the two bluebirds and the treasure of "gold coins" and "jewels" in the tree hollow.

|The bluebirds are made completely from polymer clay and no painting! A first fo me but I enjoyed the process|
|Little gold mica coins and Swarovski "jewels" really completed the piece for me.|
Also I undertook a redesign of my Onegai (Wish Granting) Jizo statues. I recently went back and looked at the evolution of these little statues over the last four years. Yikes! The first ones were really cute but so "rough" by comparison. I love the tiny, rotund bodies on these and the fact that the little bells on the hat actually tinkle! :) Definitely a Wish Granting form if ever I saw one! :)
Anyway, that's all for today but in the next few days I am excited to show you the first version of my hand-bound fairy journal! Includes foldout maps on the end pages, pressed flowers and lots of wonderful elf illustrations! All in a very magical 2" x 2.75" size:)
