My dearest Michael thank you so much. Yes it is true I didn't have much time to really work on it and I would have added more to it if time permitted but I think for a 6 year old it will be just right. I only had like 5 days so I think I did pretty well.

Default Finished miniature scene

So here we are at the end. Very brief and short. A 5 day project but I enjoyed it to the full. It is basically made with cardboard and got myself some animal figures. The little gingerbread man was done by me with polymer clay. It is nothing special but for a six year old which is in his 2nd year of primary school will be just fine. I didn't want to over do it. So here it is.

What a charming little project and very well thought out and made. It's lovely Rebecca. I bet the little boy will be really proud of it.

There you go, Rebecca. I can only join the parade. How fast you come up with such adorable results leaves me a bit breathless. Not sure what you mean by the gingerbread man being nothing special. It depends on the way you look at it, as you create so many beautiful things at such a fast pace that you might not think it special - I still think it is..

Thank you so much Jean for your kind words. It did come out really nice. Yes the little dear really hugged me hard. I guess he appreciated it.

Thank you so much my dearest Michael. I don't know what to say. I really appreciate it. At the moment I am having some health issues which aren't helping but this has proven me that I still can take a challenge. Now I am looking forward to start off a good project.
