Besides loving all things polymer clay, I am extremely fascinated by fabric. I am very oftenly inspired by the prints and the patterns and the color combinations that tantalize my eyes through fabric. I could go on and on about how much I love fabric and fabric stores and shopping for fabric... But since this is a polymer clay blog, I'll slice quickly to the chase and tell you how fabric influences my polymer clay work.
Hello everyone! It is great to be back on our design team blog. I have so enjoyed reading what my fellow designers have been up to. I have some fun things that I would like to share with you during this month of June.
I just finished up another fun of year of being an assistant pre-school teacher. Our classroom consisted of 14
3 to 5 years olds. As the assistant teacher one of my main jobs is to do an art project with the children each day.
I tend to keep bits and pieces of everything. If a T-pin is too long, I keep the scrap I trim off, bits of clay (of course!), the stray earring wire, the odd bead or two, I keep them.
Do you ever feel like doing clay, but not really "doing" clay? You want something easy, yet great at the same time? My One Block Wonder is perfect for that... 1 block of clay and 1 hour of time! Now I'm busy cooking corned beef and thinking about green beer tonight, so this project fit right into my schedule.
We've been invited to share Thanksgiving dinner with friends at their home this year. So I'm not making the turkey, just a few dishes to bring to take the load off my host and hostess. Since I'm not pressed for time or really busy in the kitchen, I can play with clay instead!!
I love the season of Fall. I don't get into Halloween much, and I'm relieved now that my kids are a little older that I don't have to deal with costumes and trick or treating anymore. But I love the changing seasons, the leaves changing colors, then making piles that crunch underfoot. (Thankfully, we live in the country and blow our leaves from around the house down our tree-covered hillside and let nature take care of them!) What does this all have to do with polymer, you ask?
