Mosaic frenzy

I had bought some christmas glass ornaments from where I work (Michael's). The original plan was to put christmas designs on them but the desire to do mosaics won out and I rolled out some black clay, stamped it with a texture and rubbed each square and rectangle with some pearl ex and metallic rubs. The pictures really don't do these ornaments justice. They shimmer and shine. =)

I am now working on a more flat surface to put on a desk or table for home decor. I have one other on my etsy along with this one.

Flower obcession!!

I've been on a tiger lily thing lately and thought I would give daisies a try. With the odd petal slices and extras I made some roses. The flowers went so well together I did a candle topper with them. Now my daughter and friends want daisies and then some more. =)

I did a tutorial for the tiger lilies that I am hoping to get on my etsy soon. I do have some tiger lily designs on etsy.

Haunted Fairy Door

I had a request for a Halloween fairy door. It took a few days on paper to get it worked out just right. The person asking is so nice and full of positive energy that I didn't want to do the normal Halloween. The snakes sorta come out of an accident but learn a cool way to make them now. This picture doesn't show the reds and a few other colors good enough but I have to say this door came out rather nicely.

Check out my store Take some time to look around thru sold orders and my flickr I enjoy custom orders and give discounts for them. =)

Faux turquoise

This is the faux turquise I made from polymer clay. I also made a feather cane last week and thought the 2 would make a beautiful wand. The larger beads are also from polymer clay. You can see more pictures of this wand on my etsy.

Week of fun with Debi

NanaDeb from came down to spend the week playing in clay. We tried some new ideas together and I showed her how to make a few things I like to make. She also brought a book on how to make the cutest of characters, the witch is one of them and I'll be posting a girl I made on flickr later on today. I got behind on my house chores but it was well worth it. After losing my job and being involved in a hit and run this visit really picked my spirits back up to my norm. =) We spent much time claying, talking and lets not forget the shopping. We made faux turquoise, coral and lapis. Mind you we didn't get it right the first time but we caught on quick.

Time to mow the yard but I will blog more about our adventure later. =)

Clay Pin Toppers

A fellow swapbotter put in a request for some clay pin toppers. I have to admit I really enjoyed making something new. I love these pins and need to make my mom some. I know she will have a fit if I don't. LOL I think she's my biggest fan. It also forces me to create on a smaller scale as well. The teapot and cup are my favorite and first attempt at creating them.

Time to catch up =)

I've been a little slack on my blog lately. So here is for a little catching up. I have been playing with clay here and there nothing really great but hoping to change that very soon. I have been having lots of fun with perler beads. I have a small etsy with them . My niece and nephew from DH's side of the family have been staying the weekends with me here and there. I love having them around. I can play like a kid without looking to foolish. LOL I have also as of yesterday, 6/26/9, lost my job. Like many other companies/factories they just couldn't survive the economic downfall. Thanks to the wonderful girls on and their support and advice. I see the good in what has happened. Move on to a better career. Use this time for a better education. I woke up today feeling much better about my future. Yaa!!!

I will get back to posting my claying adventures and hopefully inspiring some, if not all, to give clay a good try. =)
