Time. Where does it all go? Where can I get more of it? I need more time!

The past few months have been so busy that this poor little blog has been very neglected. Apologies to everyone who has popped in and found nothing new to read and apologies to myself for not keeping up with this, as I promised myself I would!

It is only 6 weeks until Christmas, as my Daughter has just informed me and I am in the midst of my busiest season, with lots of stock to make for the 7 craft fairs I have booked - yes that is 7! So my Season Resolution for between now and New Year's Eve is to try and blog once a week, just a short, sweet blog - about all the new friends and fellow artists I have met in recent months in various on line places.

Readers you are in for a treat! Pictures today are just some of the new work I have been doing!

Green Loveliness from UK!

I was so happy and delighted to be told by my friend Liz from Made in Lowell http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5005589 that I had made the front page of Etsy!

This is the very first time it has happened and I was just a little over excited!

A big thank you to Knottwood for featuring me in her amazing Green Treasury, featuring some amazing Artists from the UK. I was proud to be amongst such Talent. Visit Knotwood's Etsy Shop here, she has some beautiful items : http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5111001 and also at www.knottwood.co.uk

Thanks to Tejae, Lynda and of course Liz for helping get the screenshot to this page.

A Whole Month?

I cannot believe that it has been a whole month since my last blog entry. As my Teachers would have said "Could try harder!"

I have been busy though - some new things to show you all.

First of all I was very inspired by my Holiday in Cornwall. Beautiful Beaches, Dramatic Cliffs, Huge Waves and lots of Beachcombing!

The North Coast of Cornwall is very wild - and I spent ages collecting various washed up shells, bits of pottery and seaglass and lots of pebbles. So of course I had to have a go at making some Polymer Pebbles.
I was really pleased with the results - so many people have thought they are real and are surprised when they pick them up and find they are so light.

I have also been trying to make some organic shapes. I wanted something airy and delicate, which does not break easily. I am not there yet, but found a new design along the way! Not sure about them, but they were fun - and I think they are just a stepping stone to a new path. We will see. Let me know what you think!

I am hoping to get back into the swing of things now that the children are back at School, so I will have lots more to show you and share with you.

I've Been Gossiped About!!

Now, normally I would be a little upset to find out that I was the subject of Gossip!

However, being gossiped about on CraftGossip is an entirely different matter!

I was thrilled to spot two of my pendants featured there.

If you would like to see them, pop over to http://polymerclay.craftgossip.com/ and have a look.

Thanks for the feature CraftGossip, I really appreciate it!

Dancing With Joy!

If you haven't already done so, you must visit Kerijoy's Shop on Esty and have a look at her amazing Walldancers. www.kerijoy.etsy.com/

These beautiful Art Dolls are made from Polymer Clay, Wire and Beads. Each one is totally individual and no two are alike.

The sheer joy and exuberance that emanates from these is sure to put a smile on your face. I love the huge amount of detail in each one, the explosion of colours and their serene faces.

Such fun!

If you are in need of a little inspiration this weekend, take a moment to read her profile - truly inspiring.

The Best Of British! My Pink Treasury

I managed to snag a Treasury last night on Etsy! I haven't got one for ages and decided to make this one dedicated to the UK Sellers. They are a very tallented group! So many beautiful things to choose from.

Please have a look and leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think of it.

Many thanks to littlebirdesigns for getting this screenshot for me - have a look at her shop, she has some wonderful items there!

She does some amazing Hand Pulled Linoprints - this is my favourite, it is called Washing Day at the Harbour
Thanks Littlebird!

PCAGOE Monthly Challenge

I am a proud member of the Polymer Clay Artists Guild Of Etsy, or PCAGOE. This is a wonderful group of Polymer Clay Artists who have shops on Etsy are. We get together on line, to encourage, share, chat, show and generally live Polymer Clay.

Each month we have a challenge, which is open to all members and the topic this month is: It's Show Time!
I love the film Splash and this Mermaid Fridge Magnet and Fish Friend is what I came up with for the challenge. A big change from my usual style, but that is the great thing about the challenges. They take us out of our comfort zone and challenge us to try something new, something different. It is a great excuse for letting the whimsy side of me out!

There are lots of amazing entries this month and if you go to our website and vote for your favourite, you could win some amazing prizes. Anyone can vote, so please go and have a look!

Have fun!

The First One

Life seems to be a series of things I thought I would never do!
Yet here I am, writing my first entry.
I love this life, I never know quite what I will be doing next.
I look forward to meeting everyone who pops in to have a peek. I look forward to sharing and showing.

This is going to be fun!
