Making Faces

With all the worry about Gizmo last week I concentrated on making faces (as well as pulling them!)  Using a mould, air dry clay and mica powders I made the embellishments in the photo above.  I am not quite sure what to do with them yet but found the methodical process of just making them quite therapeutic. 

Faced with a very traumatic couple of weeks I found that the way I cope with stress is by keeping my mind occupied on something unrelated to what I am worrying about.  I guess that I detatch myself from the problem by immersing my thoughts into something else.  I can be quite productive when under stress!!!

Thank you all  for your concern for Gizmo.  He is back to his normal naughty self again.  Long live naughty!

Oh, I do like those! I think I'd put them where I could see them every day then they'd make me smile each time I saw them.

So good to hear that Gizmo is better, has he stopped being sick?

Wow, I love the little faces. I'm sure you'll find a use for them. Thankfully they had the effect of keeping you calm at a very stressful time.
Great news about Gizmo and yes, long live naughty!

Very happy that you've both come through smiling (do cats smile? yes I'm sure they do - especially when they're naughty!). Your faces are great.

Oh, my goodness - I've just been catching up with all yours posts since I went away. Poor Gizmo and poor you for all the anxiety you have had - I don't like the sound of the vets surgery you went to! I do hope all will be well now for Gizmo he is such a beautiful boy. Take carexx

It's great news that Gizmo is back to his old self.
Those faces are amazing, you are always doing crafty things that I have never seen before. I always look forward to seeing what you are up to next!
I spend more time on the computer than I should when I am stressed, as you say, it's just switching off and concentrating on something else. Your way is definately more productive though!xx
