A Giggleswick Blog Hop Win from Charmed Confections

I entered the 13 Witches of Giggleswick Blog Hop to welcome in October, and I won a darling Spider Bite from LeeAnn Kress and her blog Charmed Confections.   LeeAnn is extremely talented at sculpting figures and has mastered many forms of clay.  I found her blog on a visit to Sweet Bear Creek Whims.  Jody had LeeAnn's polymer clay lollipops in her tutorial section.  They look so real!!  And to my surprise, they both participated in the spooky blog hop, and I was blessed to win LeeAnn's wonderful creation.
 
You can imagine how exciting it was to receive this package!   
 


My photo does not do this spooky yet sweet little girl any justice.  Can you see the little ghosts coming out of her hat?!?  It is a mark of a true artist that I stop and marvel over the details on this piece.  Look at the stripes on her lollipop limbs... hard to believe that LeeAnn rolled these out of clay!  The cupcake body is amazingly realistic, and her hand sculpted sweet face makes me forget that she could be a lethal spider! LOL ;)



If you have the time, hop on over to LeeAnn's blog and check out her Etsy store.  She is always coming up with new heirloom quality creations to captivate her readers.  And I cannot forget to mention...  She also was chosen to join the team at Creative PaperClay.   Way to Go LeeAnn!!  I look forward to reading her tips... and maybe even trying my hand at some clay creations. ;)

Hi Brenda! I can't stop smiling! You are so sweet to post this on your blog. I'm so incredibly touched by this. THANK YOU!! I am glad you are enjoying your Spider Bite. She does draw you in with her sweet face, but watch out for her tiny fangs. She is a spider after all. :) It has been such a pleasure chatting with you. Happy to say that I am your newest follower of your blog. I am excited to see all your amazing creations! Please come over to the Creative Paperclay blog and make something with me! I could use your sweet, friendship there! The clay is really fun to work with. I am going to start out easy and work up from there. After six months (that's how long I will be posting there) - we'll all be pros! Hugs and blessings to you Brenda! LeeAnn
