Nearly two years ago, Fashion Madness Rock Star Kenya, upgraded or downgraded to Close-up Adele's body. Adele, having arrived with black stains on her arms, swapped bodies with Rock Star Kenya. That process was written about here and here.
The plastic in the neck area of Kenya's new-to-her body was fragile and had already cracked. Last week additional pieces cracked away after Kenya suffered a fall, making the neck even shorter than it was initially. For Kenya's head to remain on the body, the neck needed lengthening.

Kenya's head now rests nicely on the cone-shaped neck. Since I did not glue the head in place, it can be turned left or right, if desired.

|Wooden Pull-String Santa with missing foot|
While molding with clay, I also repaired the foot of a wooden pull-string Santa that I usually hang on an interior doorknob at Christmas time. This year, I hung him on an exterior doorknob. After a few days, I discovered Santa lying on the porch missing one foot. Whether he fell off or someone removed him and dropped him onto the porch remains a mystery. I can't imagine that happening, but you just never know.
Santa now has a new foot and is ready to hang on an interior door this December or whenever I choose to incorporate him into the Christmas decorations.
