Autumn vase

I usually wait until voting time to post my monthly PCAGOE challenge entry, but I couldn't wait! This is an upcycled glass vase. It was a gift from a friend a few years ago, and used to be filled with liquid scented something-or-other. I washed it out, although it still has a hint of the marvelous scent - I'm not sure what to call it; it's sort of rain-ish, outdoorsy with a hint of floral whatnot. I wish I had kept the original information, because the fragrance is fabulous. Anyway... the leaves are made by using rubber stamps on sheets of polymer clay in hand-mixed colors.

Stay tuned for the November challenge voting - it will be at PCAGOE from November 1 to 3. For a sneak peek at the challenge entries, you can visit our flickr group any time. We've got some beautiful entries already for this month!

There's still time...

I'm entertaining myself today with the etsy poster sketch tool. There's still time for Halloween stuff, people! Click here for the most recent PCAGOE Halloween creations. Here are a few of my favs from the search.

hair issues

I'm having hair issues today. Can't decide whether to cut it, get more barrettes, or just be irritable. So I thought I'd share some hair stuff made out of, you guessed it, polymer clay.

Daisy hairpins by juliespace

Gardenia alligator clip by debashri

Sunflower barrettes by clayinaround

Red millefiori floral barrette by PolymerClayCreations

Hope you're having a good hair day.

Girl scouts and beadmaking

Last week I taught beadmaking to a bunch of girl scouts in Mechanicsburg. I admit I was a little nervous - these days my large group classes tend to be adults, and my teaching of 13-year-olds tends to be one at a time and generally involves singing and no sharp implements. I was thrilled to find that this group of ladies was polite, energetic, smart and fun. What a joy to work with such a pleasant bunch!

To schedule your own polymer clay workshop for your girl scout troop, group of friends, youth group, etc., in the central PA area, email me. See some of the projects you could learn here.

It's October! Yay!

I love October. I wait for October all year long. No one hates heat like I hate heat, so when it's finally chilly, I am happy. Plus I love all things fall, all things orange, and all things pumpkin.

Here are a few polymer clay finds for October.

All the robots at ittybittiesforyou are fun, but this one takes the cake. Why am I so fabulously entertained by the idea of a miniature pumpkin robot?

And I love these tree pendants by blockpartypress. I think the yellow is my favorite, but what I really like is the look of all three together.

These are some pumpkin earrings of mine. I've never really been able to duplicate that rich brown/burgundy background color.

Happy October!

Dead Like Me

I've been re-watching the show Dead Like Me. I can't believe there are only two seasons. That's a travesty, I tell ya! Here's a link to the awesome Metisse song used in the first season. I adore Mandy Patinkin, and I think Delores Herbig is one of the funniest characters ever created. What does it say about me that many of my favorite shows are death shows? Dead Like Me, Tru Calling, Six Feet Under... Hmmm.
