Steampunk Teddy

So far so good!  Mr. Teddy thankfully doesn’t have a dominatrix complex, whew.  He isn’t a cylon either, that was a plus!  I think he still has an innocent air to him yet he is punked out.  Steampunked I mean.  Here you be the judge.

steampunkteddy4The bomber hat was one addition that helped them remain boyishly cute.  I just needed to add some detailing and then sew the lining of the box and finish it up.  Whew, I thought I was near the finish line!

Think again, someone fiddled with the attached clock pieces while I was a work and broke some off.  Luckily, Steven was able to get the old glue off with out damaging any other parts.  We reattached, this time moving it into my office, no more curious fingers.  Delays, delays, delays.  Never fails when you have a deadline.  The box was ready for attaching the bears…………………. and Murphy’s Law works!  The tape held the first bear in place perfectly, whew one down, one to go.  Steven attached the second bear while I was at work, this time the tape got testy, the bear was attached but not in the same place Steven put it.  This time I had to let Col know it was not going to be to her in time.  Sorry!

Thank goodness it was for Col, someone else wouldn’t have been as understanding.  We prevailed though, it is all ready to go………….


steampunkteddyfinished2Success at last!  He was delivered and Colleen says they loved it!  I am just waiting for a picture of teddy in his new home.  This challenge wasn’t technically difficult, like the airplane caddie.  I was theme challenged, hopefully the theme is immediately identifiable.  I learned something new and had such fun in the process……..

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
