This is a mini shrine I made  from shrink plastic , paper and craft clay.  It was inspired by my discovery of shrink plastic and Steve Macleans controversial second mission into space.   
These are cake toppers I made for my wedding several years ago.  They are made with craft clay and have a skeleton of heavy gauge wire I found in the garage.... Hubby said No Way! to the these two lovers so sadly they have never seen the top of an actual cake!:(
These are wall hangings I made using craft clay, entitled what to say?  I later made molds of the man and woman and using resin and plaster I then made the replicas into pins and other jewelry, I even took the images and made a valentine card! 
This is a shrine I made in honor of my dog Billy who passed away.  He was 14 years old and very special to us. I modified and painted an old microscope case by cutting it in half depthwise and reassembling its parts.  I also used the microscope slide drawer it had to frame my doggies image.  I made the dog out of craft clay and added photoshopped pictures.  My favorite task was adding embellishments that personify Billy such as the two dogs oh the inside door (one with its tail and one with a cropped tail like billy had, and his old blue collar name tag.

Mostly due to a spinal condition I've had since birth, I have an obsession with skeletal imagery and have always loved Dia De Los Muertos inspired pieces because of their skeletal depictions.  Many of the things I create reflect this, here are a few...Thanks!
