Get to go pick up hubby from camp tomorrow! I really start missing him after while. I have 3 black and white pieces ready to bake. I don't know how to figure out which one to choose for the challenge for Polymer Cafe mag. The entry is due May15th, so I better figure it out pretty soon. I'm going to start to get everything organized and packaged for a craft show on May 16th. I'm excited for that, because I didn't sell magnets at the last show. I think they will do well, since quite a few people (some very rudely) said I should do magnets.
The Mother's Day Gift Basket is up on PCAGOE website. I have starfish magnets in there. Go check it out! Lots of exciting things the guild is working on.

....Still recovering from a weekend away. It was a very nice weekend. My girls and I met up with my husband at camp, and stayed the night. The girls and I came hope last night, my hubby stayed (turkey season). It always seems that a vacation after a vacation is needed. Anyways, I have a lot of catch-up work to do around the house. Then I can clay around tonight!
I did get a black and white fish done...really cool!

Well, I've decided to enter the Polymer Cafe challenge, that is due May 15th. The theme is black and white. I figured what the heck, why not? The worst that can happen is it's not selected. It's worth a shot. I'm making up 3 different black and white turtles, and choosing the best of the three.
Awesome weather today, that will continue all weekend. It's good for the kids to finally be able to get outside to play, after a long northeastern winter!

Just finished a new turtle with a swirly orange color. Really cool! I am hoping to list it on Etsy tomorrow. I've been so busy building my inventory for upcoming craft shows, I've been neglecting listing new items lately.
Don't forget to check out the PCAGOE Spring Fling Challenge. Go to for more details.
It's late, and I really need to get some sleep. Just wanted to keep in touch.
Thanks for visiting!

I had an awesome day today! I went out of town to a JoAnn's to get my clay on clearance (thank you Kate!). The A.C.Moore in my town doesn't carry 3 of the colors of Studio by Sculpey, and the JoAnn's doesn't carry it at all. I ended up getting 2 out of 3 colors and a cleared out all of their clearance clay. It was a great way to get the clay I wanted and take a road trip with my family. The funny thing is, I had 4 50% off coupons for A.C.Moore, so I went there when I went home. I just can't get enough! Ah well, It was a great day.

Wow, I've been really busy creating. I have mainly been doing my sea creatures. I bought a few books last week, and have been picking a bit at those. I really want to have my inventory up for upcoming craft shows, so I figure it's a bad time to explore different techniques and whatnots.

One of the books I bought, my kids peer-pressured me into. It's just a fun one that I can make up cute kid tings relatively quickly, and sell cheap.

The other book gets into really detailed animal sculptures. That one I need to wait a bit for, because I know each project will need it's undivided attention.

I really need to push myself into selling consignment. I guess I have a fear of rejection there, but I must move past that. Okay, I am stating right now, I will concentrate on consignment within the next week. There, I said it, now I have to stick to it.

Check out PCAGOE for the Spring Fling scavenger hunt!

Okay, so I've been really busy and haven't had time to post. Let's see, I had my first craft show. It was a pretty good experience. Only sold 2 items, but it was a smaller craft show. I noted that everyone was buying food. Maybe next time, I'll whip up some chocolate covered pretzels, to reel 'em in!
I started making sea creatures, and have been super excited about that. Turtles, starfish, seahorses, and fish so far. I've found my "thing"! I'm going to extend that to other cute animals.
I've also been using a new clay that I really love! It's Studio by Sculpey. It's a bit more expensive, but totally worth it. It's easy to work with and holds it's shape at the same time. I am finding it the "happy medium" to other clays.
PCAGOE is going to be having a mother's day basket. The wrinkles are still getting ironed out, so please check back for more info. Or, visit for other great polymer clay artists and events.
