Next project- 2 more days of holidays. Better make them count!

Well... after some long nights and a few 'sculpting only' days (sorry for neglecting you vacuume and washing machine) I have finished my competition entry. I didn't really end up taking WIP pictures as promised, just one of the armature and then some of the finished sculpt, so I'm thinking I'll have to get into something else today since I only have 2 more days left of holidays. 
I am really into furring animals at the moment and have some dusty pink faux fur laying in a tub in the studio. There's also brown, black and white too but I'd really like to use the pink. 
Then there's Judith who I have attacked with an Exacto-knife and cleaned most of her face off.
What to do, what to do...
... sketches up later today!
Edited at 1:29pm to add: I'm feeling some inspiration!

Shhh... a secret project!

I have a project on the go, in fact, I'm almost a quarter finished! BUT it is for a competition which means I can't blog about it or add pictures anywhere on the internet. 
This is for  the annual Aussie Poly Clayers forum's competition They have some pretty special prizes which is rather exciting. The theme is 'Dare to Dream' which is a little broad but makes it more open to both sculptors and beaders I guess. I had some trouble figuring out how I might go about portraying the theme. Instantly things like angels, nightmares and hundreds of little fantasy creatures bounced about in my brain. Would they be too cliche'?
You'll all have to wait until after the 30th of this month after the competition begins, to see what I have come up with! (don't worry, I'm taking some progress pics as I go!)

Frustration strikes.

Yep, I've made about twenty heads and none are striking me as the right head for my Judith.
I'm so frustrated. I think it would be a good idea to set it aside and have a go at something else for a while.
