Maken' and Baken'

With the boys away, the girls just play!!!
Me and my girls spent the whole day yesterday watching girly movies {aAwesOome!} and playing with clay.

I have a few miniatures I needed to make for an order, Madison worked on some food she plans to sell on her site for American Girl Dolls, and Emmalee made a little bit of everything!

Above I have an accordion I had needed 8 of, but the guy only had one.  I bought the one, made a mold, and then used the mold to make the 8 I needed.  Fun!  It was a bit tricky with how thin and tiny the little guy was, but once I let the clay rest in the mold for a while the accordions started coming out near perfectly.

These are some french bread loaves I need for some min grocery bags.  I still have to add some shading, but I think they turned out totally cute.

Corn on the cob, 

Heads of lettuce, 

Emmalee's batch.  She turned 6 last week.  She did an amazing job on her food!

Here are Madison's creations, a turkey leg dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy and a pile of peas.

Spaghetti and meatballs, with a nice strawberry salad and the garlic bread slices below.

Apple wedges anyone?

They will go great with a nice fresh sandwich.

How about a mega breakfast for one?  Pancakes with cinnamon syrup, fried egg, strawberry and two slices of sizzling bacon.

Mads also made this amazing little fruit salad.  She put a layer of fruit in attached to the bowl, and then did some nice fruit clusters that could be spooned out onto a dolly's plate... 
I love the kiwi!

But check out the blueberries, bananas and pineapple.  The breakfast and the fruit salad were finished off with a glossy glaze to make them even more life-like and to add to the longevity of the food.

It was such a fun day.  We may have to make the boys go away more often so we can have more days like that ;0}
