firecracker, firecracker, boom boom boom~

firecrackers
Finally got to play a little bit in my craftroom yesterday!  I have been dying to get in here to make something patriotic.  I knew I wanted to make little firecracker people and this is what I came up with.  Not so sure about those clownish faces.  but for the first round they are cute enough.  I'm going to make some more but do their faces differently.
firecracker 2
the first too are small about 3 inches tall or so,  the second one is probably about 6 inches.  I was going to needle felt them, but decided on the paperclay over cardboard tubes.  cute enough, though not to die for cute...
but...
this is!  
Look what Linda from Lutkaandco sent me for hosting the patriotic swap!  I just love it!  I was going to make something similar and now I dont have too.  This is just perfectly wonderful! 
Thank you so much Linda.  I absolutely Love it!
a gift from LInda!
And so,,, here we are on another monday morning.. a most exciting time of year for all the kids who are finishing up the school year or already out...  wish I was them!  I want to stay home all summer!  Oh well... only 5 days to go til the weekend!
LOL!
happy Day everybody!

I came on here this morning looking for some creative inspiration and you never fail me! These are adorable! Where do you get these ideas?
Ugh, kids don't get out of school until the 21st so still two more weeks to go. I'm scared though. The "I'm boreds" are already starting when they get home from school!
