Clay Play much has happened since last we spoke.

1. I had an epiphany and realized I am RETIRED and don't have to focus on just the quilting business anymore (which I had abandoned anyway) and don't have to use up all my fabric/paint/yarn before I get involved in another medium.

2. Loved making the collages but decided that I can do those anytime, as all the materials are at my fingertips, in my cleaned up paint studio

3. Decided to try more funky jewelry stuff, which led from paper to polymer clay, which is something I had dabbled in years ago, but now have the time and space to really do it, for a time. My sister is giving me a bunch of clay, and I have purchased some tools and started dinkin' around yesterday.

4. If not now when?

I wanna do this, 
and have started with white, 
and I want to make stuff like this....

Curlycues, dots and twisty beads.
There is a ton of info on polymer clay on the internet and I am gobbling it up as fast as I can. I'll make now and bake later. I've got a 60% off coupon for this dedicated oven:
Polymer Clay & Craft OvenI guess I am serious. ha!


  1. Some of your images didn't show up, but I love the idea of jewelry making. I have dabbled in that myself; there are so many interesting ideas out there now and it is more fun to actually make what you want! Have fun!

  2. Yay! for you. Have fun with the jewelry and other clay items.

  3. Can't wait to see what you create!!

  4. You had to tease me with the clay!!!! I played around with that years ago & loved it. Can't wait to see what you come up with as I know it will be fantastic!!!!! You are so talented!!!

  5. Keep making polymer clay stuff. Yours will be awesome. Now you need a pasta roller. Some folks have reviewed them, but I don’t have the link.
