Junk Food, I Love You

Well, our hopes of making a million pieces of pottery in Hope's kiln that she got for Christmas quickly died when we found out the plug wasn't compatible with the one outlet in the house we thought it would fit in.  We are going to have the proper one installed, but in the meantime we've kept our clay dreams alive with some fun little Sculpey projects. This junk food bracelet is what dreams are made of (you might remember it from this post) and though I love it, I knew it wasn't representing alllllll my favorite junk foods (I have a lot) the way it should.  So, what do you do?  Make some more!

We actually did make more, more-- but these were my favorites out of the batch.  After searching out my jewelry pliers and some jump rings (why do these things always seem to hide themselves?), I had a happy little foodie family:

My favorite kind of charm bracelet is one that is packed to the maxxxx with charms, so I'm sure we'll be making more food very soon!  I love just-for-fun projects-- they keep your creativity sharp!

  3. These are so cute!! Can't wait to see your projects once you've got the kiln up and running. Have you checked if there's some kind of outlet converter?
