more new stuff

It's time for ornaments. After pondering what I wanted to make this year, I finally decided to start with plastic easter eggs made into animals. So far I have 5 penguins, 2 pigs and a cow. I'd like to do some chicks, bluebirds and owls as well. But I gotta admit, I'm tempted to just make a million more penguins because they're so much fun.

new stuff!

A boatload of tiny holiday cards made with card stock and striped with bits of old Christmas cards. These make perfect gift tags or cards for folks at the office. They're just cute.

They fit inside these tiny handmade paper envelopes.

And a gaggle of goddesses. 13 new ones.

New from divadea

A couple of new items:

Bud vase with a hanger on the back. Geometric brown/blue cane made by my sister Bird.

Fish switch plate. Perfect for an ocean-themed bathroom, next to the aquarium, or to brighten up a child's room.

my new favorite thing

LaraBars are awesome. They are made of dates, nuts and fruit. They are vegan, either completely or mostly raw, and actually do not taste anything like cardboard. (Thus, not allowing me to use my favorite Xander quote, which is, "Mmmm, cardboardy," but I digress.)
Could I make this snack in my fairly hefty blender? Yes. Am I going to? Um, no. So, yes, these are a bit pricey, but totally worth it in my opinion, to have real, energy-providing food to take to work, eat for breakfast, ward off french fries with...
You can get them lots of places on line. You can see all the flavors at the official LaraBar site. My favorites are lemon, key lime and cherry (I'm fruity.)
And don't even get me started on the chocolate ones...

Calling Central PA Singers!

Fall is quickly approaching, and if you've been thinking singing, I've got two opportunities for you!

The Cumberland Singers is a Mechanicsburg-based community choir. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings starting in September, and we're always welcoming new singers, especially tenors and basses. This season's program is entitled Lullabies and Jubilation and includes Daniel Pinkham's Christmas cantata for choir, organ and brass as well as some wonderful new takes on old Christmas favorites. I guarantee fun! For more information, contact Alissa at

Marmalade is a small a cappella ensemble performing throughout the central PA area. We are currently auditioning for singers, especially low altos. Visit our blog for more information or email

two new pendants

They shimmer, they shine, they come as a set.

goooo Joshua

I love these two so much. My all-time favorite is still Sabra from last year, but I am completely in love with Joshua. I admit it, I voted this time :)

What will I do with all my free time once the show is over tomorrow night?

4 down, 74 to go...

This is the fourth piece in my tarot art series. The empress is an earth, motherly figure surrounded by green, growth and abundance. Here she is among water, wheat, flowers and fruit. This piece is made primarily of polymer clay, including three canework patterns, with embellishments of raffia, ribbon, yarn and paint.

it's show time

It's challenge time at the polymer clay artists guild of etsy again! Our monthly theme was It's Show Time, and 12 people have created entries having to do with television and movies. To cast your vote, visit All voters are entered into two random drawings for prizes. There's a set of beautiful accessories as well as this duo of handmade, one-of-a-kind necklaces by polymer clay artists paperpam and pipsjewellery.

And here's my entry. It's a quotation from my favorite (most days) character, Giles. I (obviously) had trouble getting a decent photo of this one, not sure why.

It's a 7-inch square wall-hanging made in several steps:
1. Peruse brain (and internet) for good Buffy quotes.
2. Make 20 polymer clay canes.
3. Lay out cane slices one at a time and roll flat to make background.
4. Make each letter out of scrap clay and bake.
5. Cover each letter with individual slices of aforementioned canes. and attach to background with liquid Sculpey.
6. Mount on scrap clay for stability and bake.
7. Make and attach embellishments and edging and bake again.
8. Attempt fruitlessly to photograph.

This piece isn't going to be for sale. In fact, it's already on my wall :)
