Pink Saturday~July21, 2012~ Christmas in July??

It's time again for
 "Pink Saturday!"

Go here to see other "PINK" posts!


In the past I was deeply into crafting and my favorite things to make were Christmas figures-especially Santas.

Here are a couple examples of what I liked to do ~ and they just happen to be in Pink!

 This santa is all original papier mache'! By all original I mean no molds were used in the creating of these figures, so, even though I made a LOT of these, no 2 were ever the same.

I made them in different sizes too. This one is just over 12 inches tall. He is one of just a few that I dressed in pink!

  :)  Even in pink, this guy is no sissy! Look at that heavy bag of toys on his back!!

 (I made this one especially for my own home-to use in my rose/pink living room.)

 I signed and dated all that I made and I see this was #3 - in 1991.

These next ones are painted gourd santas.
The first one is a medium size hanging santa, which I use at a window with lights all around him. Most of my gourds I painted red but this one is a rose/pink!

The others here are made from small gourds-ornament size!

  I also made some cone and papier mache' trees. I decorated this one with tiny pink roses. It's 12 inches tall!

Wow! Your papier mache Santa is amazing. Just gorgeous! The gourd Santa is pretty darn cute as is the rose tree. I found you at Pink Saturday.

Well, Junie you know I've always found you to be very creative! These prove the point; my goodness I can't imagine how much time it took to make these, then drawing and painting. Beautiful!

Thanks, Sally. The papier mache figures took a LOT of time, for sure...especially since I was figuring it out as I went along. These were my own idea and I had no model to go by at all and had never done anything like this before.
The gourds were easier and less time consuming- until I started embellishing some of them with papier mache beards and trim! lol!

Thanks all of you-for your comments.

Wish I could get back into 'making stuff' again!

All of this was BC....Charles' term for "Before Computer!" lol
