Happy Fall To You ALL!

I can’t believe how long it has been since I have posted.  I have been living life.  Whatever that means.  I have a dog now.  Did I tell you that.  That is a new experience for me.  Ginger is great.  We are learning all kind of new things.  She is a pomeranian.  But without the yip, all the hair and the short nose.  We think she must be a throwback to before they were bred smaller.  She is about 12 pounds.

Ginger strikes a pose.

 

San Diego Polymer Clay Guild’s Sandy Camp 14 has come and gone.  50’s Rock and Roll.  We had a great time.  I dressed up as “Lucy”  I never did find “Ricky” for those of you who asked.  We had some rain, but nothing we couldn’t handle.  It was better than too much heat.  We had lots of friends from all over and learned some new techniques.

It is hard to believe it is mid October.  Time flies.  But soon the temperature gauge will dip below 90 and we will again enjoy or San Diego weather we pay for…. It has been a hot one.  I came away from Sandy Camp with lots of new thing I want to try and all those that I didn’t get done before I left.

So what is everybody else up to these days???  -K

Angel for Gift Exchange.

Angel in Cernit

The San Diego Polymer Clay Guild Gift Exchange was last  Saturday.  It had been a crazy week after returning from my trip out east.  I had a great time! I had not been very productive throughout the week.  I wanted to make an angel.  I had it in my head, but  had not actually sat down to do it.  Once I got going on it I had a good time.  It seemed to come together as I wanted it too.  I want to do more.  This is how it turned out.  I think the person who received it appreciated it.  She is made with Cernit clay and then highlighted with pearlex powders.  I used a texture sheet for her Wings.   Next time I think I will try more color, maybe some canes.  I like how she came out  -K

Mellowcreme Pumpkins in Polymer Clay

New in my Etsy Shop….

itty bitty polymer clay Mellowcreme Pumpkin beads!

I love the candy! I could eat a whole bag(or two) no problem. I may try to make the other things in the bag, maybe. I think this may require more research….

Yum! – Tina

Coincidence?

Jack thought it was a bit odd that his surgery was scheduled for October 30th….

Sandy Camp XIII is Over!

We survived another year at Sandy Camp.  We had lots of laughs and late nights.  My Bug Demo went well.  Everybody seemed to enjoy it.  Several attendees through the weekend tried their hand at making bugs.  I made more bugs while I was there and gave the other artist that did demos their choice of my bugs as a thank you for their time and effort along with a card.  They liked picking a bug out of the collection.  I really enjoyed the different variations that people came up with of making the legs and antenna.  It was fun!  We had lots of crazy Halloween costumes at our Friday night Trick and Greet movie night.  The room was filled with people enjoying candy and lots of popcorn and the movie “Young Frankenstein”.  Now we need to recover for next year…

I’m not sure if I need to seek help…

I’m having too much fun with these pumpkins. I wonder, how should I carve the real thing for Halloween? So many choices…muahaha…  -T

Back To Business

Whew! I got Nikki’s birthday party done. She had a great time with all her funny friends. Apparently, to keep this crowd happy it takes is a pool, noodles, squirt guns, bubbles, glow sticks, stick on moustaches, a couple of sombreros, sour patch gummies, pizza, soda, skateboard keychains, cake and markers to write on the tablecloth. Good times…good times…

We had to use the table that I work on for the party, so now that I have it back I’m back in biz! I’m still into Halloween colors and goodies, getting stuff together to sell.

Why is it always food?   – T
