Jar Progress

I was so right!  The happy accident is just what I needed to happen.  This time the colors are even better.  The base coat is on, face drawn on, now I have the colors blocked in.

The hat I created from some felt I had left over from a prior project.   I thought I was finished. Not so fast,  my daughter Maureen, had a fantastic suggestion.  She had me go get some of the corn stalk blooms from the garden.  They were dry now and she thought they would be a great “straw” addition under his hat.  So, of course we tried it right away.

What a difference!  She is a genius, a chip of this old block!  So, my fall jar topper is complete and filled with candy corns, mmmmmm my favorite!  I think I will enjoy this one for a while before I think about the next holiday topper.

Enjoy these crisp, clear, cold nights…………brrrrrr, fall is upon us now…….. Cyn


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 designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
