This blog was getting cluttered with too many topics, no focus, and just too much variety. I decided to separate my illustration and photography side from the sewing, crafting, etc. So, from now on, this blog will feature the latter, while Mrs Ricefield Illustration will focus on the former.
It's no secret that I have a girly-girly-girl with a very unique sense of fashion. This child sometimes makes Pinkalicious seem colorless.
And yes, she's obsessed with pink.
I've also mentioned before that I like to recycle household items. Put those things together and you've got this project: little doll cakes made of modeling clay and plastic lids + beads.
I originally saw this idea on Pinterest, linking to a post on Love and Lollipops. We did make our own homemade clay using a recipe I had, but it dried quickly and it was breaking so easily that we remade everything using a small bag of Model Magic.

It was a hit. She still loves playing with her little cakes, although all the beads have been taken out by now. I tried gluing them back on, but nothing seemed to stick well enough to prevent her from taking them off. So I just let it go and the cakes are still popular during our "tea" time.
