Look at what my Mackenzie did today!

I finally decided it was time for me to take out my paper clay that I have been procrastinating with. Being it`s a medium I`ve never dabbled in I kept putting it off. Well today I decided I was going to make a pumpkin carved out for a battery operated tea~light. Next thing you know here comes my 9 year old daughter Mackenzie with her air dry clay and sat across from me at the table.

I must say I was shocked hers came out way smoother then mine I was beside myself. She carved lines in it for a puimpkin gave it a stem and I added a rusty wire for it so once fully dried and painted she may add a hand stamped banner reading Happy Harvest.
Well I was so excited and proud of her! So she`s says to me "can I sell it on ebay?" and I say sure! She`s so excited she can hardly wait to be able to paint it and give it life.

While that was drying her and I did a combined project of a pumpkin head wearing a witches hat. He looks pretty cool can`t wait until he`s given color.
This was alot of fun and I look forward to one day doing this over the cloth dolls. In time I guess.
Here she is in progress...LOL
