I've been playing around with my polymer clay over the past few days between working my 'day' job. I do medical transcription from home and I love the fact that I can do it in my jammies with a big window view. The down side is that I'm physically close to my clay and I swear I can hear it calling my name while I'm trying to work. This is my first bunny attempt. I think he turned out kinda cute. Before I continue on, I should take a moment and thank my husband, Steve, for being my always supportive muse. Because I named the bunny "Patches" (yeah, I know...very original) Steve immediately came up with this: "No matter what scrapes and breaks life brings, there's always a patch." Which I thought was pretty cute. And from which spawned further creative ideas. We decided I should continue the theme and make a whole Patch Critter Family. So look for more Patch creations to follow soon. I'm also considering making them in miniature but I'm putting that to a vote. (Please vote on the poll in the right colum!!)
Next is is a porcelain face which I "dressed" with polymer clay. I see her as sort of a Renaissance lady who lives in an old castle. Her name is "Isolde" which in Welsh (Irish) means "beautiful lady". She has a wire-wrapped bail and is ready for use as a pendant.
Yesterday yielded a nice surprise. We went to the mall mainly to people watch, as I have a twisted sense of humor and enjoy watching the dynamics of human characteristics shopping on the day before Christmas. In the meantime though, we popped into Anchor Blue who was having a huge sale. Buy 2 get 2 free on entire store! Steve got a couple of new shirts and I got a nice shirt as well. But the best find of all was a $50 hoody on sale for $10! Now I have a hoody that actually fits me. Yippee!
Crafting has always been a passion for me. I have yet to stick with any particular medium, as I love to switch it out and try new things. This blog is sort of a testament to that fact. Hope you enjoy...
