I’ve just posted a new video to my other blog showing how I store my canes. Just had to share what I’ve learned.

If you take a look, why not take time to sign up for my newsletter while you’re there and view a video on how to cover a business card holder. My other blog, Polymer Clay Etc. is where I will be sharing things I’ve learned and posting videos. This blog is for my personal work. I know, crazy huh?

I used the canes from my video, Leave No Skinner Blend Behind, to make the two
girls here. They are both for sale at my Etsy shop.

I just finished  a video for my other blog. Polymer Clay Etc. I was making a Skinner Blend cane and using even the scraps to make more canes, when I thought that maybe others might like to see what I do with the scraps. I just hate to waste the Skinner Blend. So check it out. I had to edit it down so it’s not very long.

Just finished a video tutorial for my new blog, Polymer Clay Etc., and I’m putting the business card holders I made for sale in my Etsy Shop. I also made a girl pin and another funky girl business card holder. I will be offering them too.  Just too much fun for one person.

Is it raining fish? A Polymer Clay Bracelet

Fish Girl Polymer Clay Bracelet

I can’t remember how many years ago it was when I saw Kim Korringa’s fish cane. She shared a tutorial and I loved the colors and make one right away. I didn’t do anything with it once I make it until recently. A fish head hat seemed just right for one of my girls. She would be in style in the Florida Keys I think. You can make your own fish cane by following  Kim’s excellent instructions at Kim Korringa Designs. Thank you Kim.

Iris Mishly's Mosquito Bracelet

Iris Mishly's Mosquito Bracelet

Iris Mishly is an amazingly talented polymer clay artist. Her work was featured in Polymer Cafe Magazine (June 2009).

But what makes her stand out for me is how friendly and supportive she is. I have just recently put my work on the internet after years of using the web as a source of inspiration and just plain enjoyment. Iris has been one of the most welcoming polymer clay artists so far. She always takes the time to comment on work that I have posted. I thank her very much for making me feel welcomed.

But the exciting thing is that she has featured my work on her POLYMERI ONLINE Blog. I am thrilled, thank you so much Iris. You can also see more of her work in her Flickr Photostream.



Highlands Art League Donation

Highlands Art League had a very successful Derby Day fundraising event on Saturday. My polymer clay bottle (see last post) sold on the silent auction table for $130.00. I was pleased with that amount considering the amount of beautiful artwork that was offered.
It was a beautiful night and everyone had a great time.
The league owes a great deal of thanks to Jeri and Jimmy Wohl, hosts of the event, for the use of the lodge at their Rafter T Ranch. It was a fabulous setting for Race for the Arts.
