I Just Joined the 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge

While I lost steam last year with the challenge, I am going to do it again this year. I plan on making a Head, 1 pair of hands or 1 pair of feet each week.

I love sculpting. Creating someone from a lump of clay is just amazing to me and every time I do it I feel so accomplished.

This year I will be focusing more on sculpting. I am planning on entering one of my dolls in the Petaluma, CA Doll Show this year and my focus for 2016 is on defining my personal style. This challenge will definitely help me in that respect.

Treasure Chest Tutorial Coming soon!

Yes, you saw that right! I am almost done with the treasure chest tutorial. I made the treasure chest shown above for my guy's Pirate themed birthday party this past August but when I sat down to write the tutorial I realized that I did not take as many pictures as I needed so off I went to the local thrift store for a couple of things so that I could show you the steps I took to get my results.

I'm really excited about it and hope to have it posted by the end of the year. After that I'll be finishing up a pennant banner tutorial. This one is super easy and gives you so many more ways to use those cool digital downloads that you see on Etsy and other places.

I'll also be posting a pic of my completed Santa. He turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself and then I'll share with you some upcoming projects I have for this new year, including my ideas for my entry in the Peteluma Doll show this year.

Thanks for being here!

New Project

Hi everyone,

I imagine you are all as busy as I am right now but I had to pop in a share a project I am working on.

This little buy is a class that is being taught by Deb Wood through A for Artistic. If you haven't visited A for Artistic yet, you really should check it out. The classes are amazing and since they are mostly online you can go at your own pace.

This guy is from the Santa Claus is Coming to Town class. In this class we get one lesson a week for 3 weeks for Santa then there is a bonus lesson wrapping tiny presents. Week one-done!

I will share my progress with you as I go.

I still have those tutorials to share plus other fun things. The first tutorial from John's party is on making a printable fabric banner - totally cool! I'll be posting that be the end of December - PROMISE after that I'll have one on whipping up a quick and easy treasure chest and also some pictures of my latest original works!

Thanks for being a part of my world!
