Last pillows for now, i promise!

Fine! I'm obsessed!
But while i was at home, i got so many pillow figurine ideas, and i knew i wouldn't be able to execute them throughout the school year. Fimo takes commitment, plus it slowly but surely dries...

So the last piece i manage to scramble up and finish last-minute are these newly-weds, a joyous after-party gift to my most recently married friends, Dana & Arbel !

Though i know D&A won't need a gold chain to keep them together, it was a nice suggestion from my mom, and i added the hearts.
Unfortunately, haven't nailed the delicate Fimo sculpting/baking conditions yet, so when they come out of the oven the pieces sometimes have little cuts and dots in them, so my apologies - since the groom's tux looks dirty and the bride looks like she's been terribly slashed! (with the power of true love, they see past each other's flaws..?)

I'm kind of proud of this little metallic corset "ribbon" i made for the bridal dress:

The Devil is in the details :)

and for dessert, an example of what I do when flipping through interior design magazines:
