  1. This clay gingerbread house looks yummy enough to eat! I was considering taking Helena’s workshop, too, ’cause it crossed my mind to try to create my characters in 3-D. Thought it might help the drawing process. Granted—will I actually do it? Not sure. But it would be nice to know the best way IF I do 🙂

    And I entered the contest, of course! Thanks, Kathy 😀 And looking forward to Heather’s critiques!


  2. I’m posting again, simply because something weird happened with my email address and icon! Please excuse this! I’m hoping it will rectify it 🙂


    • It worked 🙂
