We’ll be on our way north – we’re headed out for a few days in Maine and New Hampshire.
In the meantime, I want to show you a few things I’ve been working on.
A clay-buddy, and fellow member of the PCAGOE, Laurel Steven, makes beautiful lockets of clay – hers are much more refined and arty, but this was my adaptation of her process. I wanted something unique to me to offer for my first design for Polymer Clay Production’s new e-magazine. This is what I came up with:
My lockets open on a pivot, swinging up and away from the tiny surprise inside. I’ve submitted my completed tutorial, and it will appear in the first issue, which is to be released soon – more about that as I hear more.
And, it’s Challenge time. This next month’s theme is “Southwest,” and here is my submission:
I just had to go with tiny houses! Stacy was kind enough to model it for me, although she didn’t want her face shown. “My hair is a mess!” As if she isn’t always gorgeous.
And, I had it in my mind to make a Mr & Mrs Santa to put in my etsy shop for sale. Well, I had some mechanical problems and had to paint Mrs’ face and repair cracks in Mr’s back, so these are for my own collection:
As you can see, I’ve been busy. Add to that getting my room organized, a few medical appointments and getting ready for vacation, and I’ve been very busy.
The other night was the Harvest Moon. My friend Kelly missed seeing it, so I tried very hard to capture some photos of it for her from our porch. As it happened, that wasn’t possible – the trees across the road blocked my view from the porch. Only way I could see it was from my bedroom window. Through the screen. Sorry, Kelly!
It really was lovely.
I’m taking my laptop with me on vacation, and hope to taunt all of you with photos of the beautiful Acadia National Park. So watch this space!
