Trying something different-a Christmas present adventure

Still working on presents for my youngest, things to go in her new barbie house. I've been seeing all these wonderful Sculpey miniature foods and thought these would be perfect for a Barbie.
I've never really played with Sculpey much, maybe a few things here and there but nothing like mini foods. 
So I went in search of a tutorial that would teach me how. 
I found lots of great videos on YouTube for this subject and got to work. 
I made...
Chocolate chip cookies
pink cupcakes
blueberry pie
Chocolate cake with strawberry icing
toast with jam
french bread
a bowl of peas
and pink candy canes for the season.
I didn't think I had it in me, when I started I figured it would be a waist of time and that they wouldn't turn out right, but I guess sometimes when you try something new it works out. 

So for this holiday season I challenge you to try something new, something you didn't think you could do but always wanted to try. And let me know if you do, I want to hear about it.
Happy Holidays!

Hi Thespa!
Those are adorable...your daughter is lucky! I've never worked with Sculpey but I've heard great things about it so maybe I'll give it a try soon. I know my dd would love making things with it, she's 10yo.
Thanks for reminding me about it...:)
Happy creating....
