where I ramble on about what's happening in my little world
and hopefully you have some enjoyment reading about it!


A little while ago, Ira from Merry Jingle put an idea in my head for some baby sleepyheads after she won Mr Sleepyhead on my blog give-away. Well, I had to have a go! that was two weeks ago and then disaster struck.... I spent a day making various body parts and baby pun-kins , shoved them in the oven and went off doing whatever it is airheads like me do. An hour later I returned and nearly sobbed as I'd burnt the lot!!! (no suprise really!) so I made more..... and then I couldnt work out how to get all the babies on a vine and still be able to reposition them.... and then real life kept pulling me off to do other things and then....
the procrastination ended and I made this....

I hope you like it Ira, it was just going to be a gift to keep Sleepyhead company, now its a special thankyou gift too :o) The candles should glow in the dark (they are only trainee illuminators at the moment until they grow off the vine) although I have no idea how I'm gonna get a picture of them glowing in the dark?? I tried & failed :o(
am now off to the post office .... they dont like to be out of the ground too long you know!

I don't know about sleepy Baby Pumpkins Wendie. There is a certain Granny Weatherwax who is still without clothes!!! She's told me, that she's debating, about joining a nudist colony!!! PMSL..

Love your babies Wendie and I'm glad that you are finally back to creating, can't wait to see what else you come up with...xxx

Tabitha Corsica said...

So cool! What would even cooler is if you could get the to actually all light up!


WendiesMiniWorld said...

thanx Julia & Ewa :o)
Debbie - Granny W would NEVER think such a thing!! even in scorching temps she would only perhaps remove one of her many many vests!! she's wrapped up well at the moment, to maintain her temp & her dignity.... & to prevent me from any hexing!!!!! we had words, she knows wots wot does Granny :o)

WendiesMiniWorld said...

Michelle's Mad World said...

WOW these are fabulous little sleepy pumpkins and what faces too! What a great idea with the candles Wendie! :o))

I will be working with paparlcay shortly, unsure how easy that will be in this heat!

Tallulah Belle said...

wow Wendie I love them. Such a cool idea. I've been trying to make clay leaves to put on wire...not easy at all. I can't get them to stay attached lol.

Can you do something with the burned ones. There must be something hmmm.

I bought some glow in the dark paint a few weeks back and will be playing with glow in the dark plants soon :-)

Merry Jingle said...

I'm speechless. And it takes a lot to shut me up :D

The little baby Sleepy Heads are SO adorable, I am so, so, so happy about these wonderful little fellows :)

I'll have to start to build a crate for them where they can grow :)


And I'm really happy that you've gotten your creative mood back, can't wait to see what you make :)

Big hugs,


Glenda said...

Fabulous, Wendie!!
My illuminated pumpkin arrived in the post yesterday - it is sooooo good!! I love it to bits!!
Thankyou so much for the card, too, such a kind thought!

Mistress Weatherwax without clothes??????!!!!! No!!! We can't be having with that!!! Thistles! Hedgehogs!

Ascension - gracias por sus amables palabras
Michelle - when you are using the paperclay remember to only use what you can handle & wrap the rest of the pack up in clingfilm ASAP to stop it drying out. Also a little spray bottle of water will help give you a bit of extra maleability & time in this heat. Good luck!
Jayne - the trick I used with clay on paperwire was to drop some liquid fimo /deco gel onto the wire first, it gave the clay something it knew to hang on to. All burnt offerings go in the bin in this house, I dont like reminders of what a fool Ive been LOL
Ira - Im happily relieved that you love them so much :o) there is a loop on the end for you to secure them into a garden , but I shall send them in a crate if thats how you want them to 'grow'.
Glenda - it took its time getting to you! but I suppose it was a very big ocean to cross ;o) and how I laughed at Hedgehogs.... I know a song about Hedgehogs ..... ♫♪!!!!! LOL
