... Luck O' The Irish ...

Saint Patrick's Day Pendants & Pins by KatersAcres (Katie Oskin)Do you have to be Irish to be lucky? Probably not. But the season of Saint Patrick's Day is a great example of how you can be creative.

Many artists & clayers struggle with where to get their inspiration. Some draw inspiration from magazines, here on the Sculpey site, other people's work, books, and so much more. One of my favorite ways to be inspired (especially when it comes to color) are the holidays.
