monster army, not so much...

I had one of those off days yesterday.
Nothing seemed to go right as far as making monsters or with the kids, so my monster army plans did pan out and I spent most of yesterday putting kids in time out, especially my youngest, he shows his frustration with good old fashion hitting, biting, and pinching. Can you say handful! so, I did mange to squeak out three critters, not sure how. I decided it was in my best mental interest to wait to paint them until the kids were all snug in their beds. then I ran into a whole new trouble, I don't know if it was my day of being the punisher mom or what, but I was ready to toss them in the trash last night. things ended up working out, but ugh. what a day!!

Well your efforts paid off! they are fab - I love the colors you use. Why is it, some days are pants, and other days, you wonder how the heck sculpting rolled off your fingers like silk?!!

Love the new monsters. As far as "handful" kids? Ask me why I have nothing to post! I was supposed to be done with three projects by now!
