As a child, I was never interested in playing sports or running around outside. I spent most of my time seated at the peninsula in my parents kitchen with my clay.
I can't remember now, but I know I had some sort of book to guide me along. However, I'm sure they were meant to be larger in the end. My goal was to try to make them as small as possible, with the same details.
So let me share with you my finest creations. . .
I set her next to the Starbucks cup to give you some perspective. . .
These two sumo wrestlers were my favorite.
I guess one lost his head in a battle somewhere between 1996 and 2012.
A little superglue and we're good to go.
Here are the frogs, snakes and lizards. I had a thing for frogs.
Next is one of the best looking cakes I've ever seen.
And some other food.
And again, another photo just to help you with some perspective on just how tiny these are.
And I particularly love this worm with the crooked top hat.
So I was basically the coolest 10 year old ever, right?
In all seriousness, it is funny to look back on these little creations and see parts of my personality. I'm super detailed with things I care about. I'm creative. I enjoy the challenge in making small things, like jewelry and clay creatures.
So let this be a sign, for all you mom's of 10 year olds who want to stay inside and make crafts alone, she may wind up to be a hair blogger like me one day.
