Photo Hunters…Original

Anyone who knows me knows how important my Scotties are to me! I also love making things. Yes, my hands are frequently busy making something.

One day, as I was with my kids in the Dollar Tree, I saw some cute little bells for Christmas decorating.  Suddenly, I imagined one of those bells with a wee little Scottie on top of it!

I began seeking a medium and found it in Sculpey polymer clay! Thus, my “Scottie Bell” was born….

And why stop with one? So, I began making little Scottie “fronts” and “backs” whenever I sat down for a few minutes!

I had to shape the Scotties, bake them, then paint them. And, of course, I decided to even paint some of the bells to give them an “antique” appearance!

My hobby sort of turned into an addiction!

Yes, I now have about 200 Scotties looking for homes!  I have a Scottie Christmas tree and a couple more tins with MORE Scotties!

And that is my original!

  2. Hi Katya. Thank you for visiting my photo hunt entry and taking time to read my Little Peace Maker article. I really appreciate it.

    You are so creative. I love those wonderful Scottie Bells you made. They are so cute and I could imagine your Christmas tree looking wonderful with all those wonderful bells.

  3. Absolutely wonderful for this theme! I thought it was great with the first one. . . and then three but WOW!!!!!!!!!!! a whole tub full! I wonder how much it would cost to purchase one? I am not sure I can fit another ornament on my Christmas tree which I have up all year long (not the lights on tho) but it is one I don’t have. Ü

    Thanks for checking mine out.

  4. I love Sculpey clay and Fimo clay. I have made soooo many things out of that. Check out my site and see the witch I made with it. Great idea to start selling. I am sure you wouldn’t have a problem with finding homes for them. Have a good weekend.
