30 Words Thursday: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Yes, they're asleep.
Each in his or her own spot.
No one is fighting. 
Everyone is quiet, except for the snoring and dreaming.
Now, I can get something done!

Taken from Erin's blog

The premise of 30 Words Thursdays is simple...
Take an image (preferably one you shot, or have permission to use).
Write 30 Words about it. No more. No less.
Post it each Thursday.
Add your link to the InLinkz on my 30 Words Thursday post.

More Polymer Clay Work:: Experiments in Collars

I plan to drill holes and add chain to these.  They need a little bit of sanding and a sealer, but this is how far I've gotten.

Can you see these colors used in a collar with leaves?
 My favorite!
This was fun to make, but it took forever!!!!
I really like it!

New Polymer Clay Beads - Happy Monday Morning!

I've been busy making polymer clay beads.  I haven't been able to get on my torch and make glass beads, but I do love polymer clay beads, too.

I call these "Rose Discs."  I'm hoping to combine them with fibers to make some unique necklaces and bracelets.  We'll see how they work out!

These are organic beads that I made using a tutorial written by Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree on Etsy.  The tutorial I used is called, appropriately, "Organic Beads."  It's a great tutorial.  This is only one type of bead included in the tutorial.  If you like to work with polymer clay and make organic beads, this is a tutorial to buy. 

I used another one of Ginger's tutorials to make this faux sea glass beads.  The title of the tutorial is "Faux Glass Effects."  I like the results of the Faux Sea Glass.  I'm looking forward to having fun with these beads.

These tutorials are well worth the cost if you enjoy working with polymer clay.  Thanks, Ginger!
