A couple years ago I started this polymer clay miniature.  I had high dreams for it.  A small castle scene that fits in the palm of your hand!  Just imagine how helpful that would be at story time.  When bedtime comes you take down the coveted castle from it's high-out-of-reach place and sit down by your child's bedside.  For a few minutes they get to hold it and dream as you tell your stories.  The stories of high adventure and fairy tales.  Then, after the prop has safely been put away, the child falls asleep to dreams full of magical wonder.

Okay, it didn't happen.

I still think it would be awesome, but there just never seems to be enough time.  It's been in the process of construction for a few years now and it's already falling apart.  The poor wishing well lost it's top.

Oh well,
Life happens.  Who knows, maybe I'll get excited about it again and finish it.

That castle is adorable. Now I want to go paint something. Which always ends badly for me.
