man- go away for 3 days and come back to 4,000 posts!! - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Congratulations and good luck to you!

I have almost as many polymer clay books as I do cake decorating books... They are great for fondant ideas. I have the same book that you made the fairy from too! My son likes to make things in clay while I make cake items. I also use non-drying clay to practice with before making the item in fondant. It's cheaper that way...

That's the point right there!!!! How many divorces have we seen that are because the wife is just too naggy....

So, smile, give kisses... and keep the family intact... that's the bottom line. I like when Dr. Phil says... "Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happily married?"

That's kind of sums it all up right there.

Oh any tips? Did you have any unusual problems?



It was pretty much by the book. We had to make a few minor changes do to the differences. We did the hair different. But most of all just follow the directions. It was pretty much that easy.

I've used play-dough to practice for fondant many times. It really helps and not as costly.

I also grew up playing with lots of clay.




Mchelle- Booties are on the way

The clay book is a Book for Kids and Polymer clay. I don't have it in hand right now- It's at ladycakes house. I did go and purchase another one yesterday.... so I'll be playing (and posting) again very soon!

Hi cali4dawn!

Would you be willing to email me the pricing matrix and bootie templates? My email is caroleene@sympatico.ca

I just finished reading these posts and I must say your words of wisdom brought tears to my eyes. My husband works harder than anyone I know and he does it all to support us....thank you for that reality check. He will be getting a well deserved kiss when he gets in tonight! No problem with the socks though, that's my little bad habit!!! My congratulations also on your 8 years together. That is no small feat these days!

Thank you,

Tripletmom

hehehehehehe- me too!! Joan lays clothes on the floor in front of the hamper instead of in the hammer (I don't know why) but at least she gets them in the right room. Me, however, I literally have socks all over the house!!

Thank you for the nice compliment. Joan also goes to work every day to support our home. I do not work outside this house. The few dollars I make selling cakes wouldn't feed a mouse. She busts butt and makes sure I can go on cake retreats and have plenty of cake toys. When we had a child in the house he lacked for nothing. I still say if she messes up once in awhile (and I mean rarely- she is so good) and says something stupid or forgets to do a simple chore.... she still deserves a kiss and lot of understanding. I've learned to tapedshut.gif when it's the hardest thing to do.
