Many, many things make me happy, but I must say,
when I venture down an avenue with my clay and the
results are successful, I squeal with delight. 
And believe me, my husband will attest to the
squealing part, poor guy.
I adore the look and texture of pottery and stoneware
and decided it was time to figure out how to replicate
it with my clay. 
And by golly, I think I did it! 
Here's what I've come up with so far...

Where do you find happiness?

Spooky Contributions

I've always been a Halloween fan.  Spooky things fascinate me. 
So my contribution to the polymer clay bead
world every year are these little guys...
To get into the pre-Halloween mood last night while creating, 
I watched Mary Reilly on Hulu.  It's a Dr. Jekyll and Mr.Hyde flick...very enjoyable!

But check out this crazy, black cat...
He comes from the imagination of chikiegirlcreations, whom I've always admired. 
And yes, he's polymer it!!

Can you smell it?

Well, I sure can!  The fabulous scent of autumn
is in the air and my innerchild is screaming with excitement. 
Not only is this my favorite time of the year,
but it's also my favorite time to create. 
Fall colors just seem to suit me well. 
So I've begun some new avenues....
Acorns, to soon adorn a necklace...

and some new egg-shaped fall beads with a
beautiful faux lampwork look.

More colors to come!

Back from the coast and I am feeling good! 
We had a such a fun time and saw some beautiful places.

Yes, this was a really big tree,
but I have this thing for trees...

Lots of romantic walks on the beach with my hubby :)

and yet,
I still woke up feeling (and looking) a bit like these guys...

but I've never been a morning person.

So I'm home, refreshed and ready to go! 
I even created this beach inspired bracelet for my jewelry shop and I'm really digging the natural feeling it has.

Now on to fill some custom orders that came in while I was away.
