It's been a while.

So it's been a while since I blogged. I have been so busy with my crochet hooks on Etsy, it's hard to do anything extra. We are also having a wedding in the family. My daughter is getting married in September and we have been shopping, shopping, shopping. She picked out a beautiful Maggie Sotero wedding dress. How much fun we are having though. There's so much to do and everything costs so much today. I'm grateful she found a wonderful young man and so happy for both of them.

Image Transfer Pocket Mirror - Two Mirrors

This is something new I am doing, trying to perfect it so that I can teach it in my class in the fall and also put some in my Etsy store. I'm really pleased with the way they came out. There are two mirrors in the compact, a magnified mirror and a regular mirror - Perfect for touching up your make-up!

And another rose cane.

Here another mistake - can you find it? Need one more petal at the top. Where did it go? LOL

A Little About Me

I'm retired from Stony Brook Hospital (administrative), and since then have been exploring the wonderful medium of polymer clay. I have two children, and two grandchildren, 5 years old and two years old. They are truly a joy. I am married to the same guy for 41 years. He's supportive of my art and teaching. I'm a Law and Order Junkie and love all books by James Patterson, the Eagles music and Billy Joel.

Proud member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy

Since May of 2007 I have been a member of the Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy. Etsy is an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade. The website, which launched in 2005, has an online community that includes tutorials, downloads, blogs, and a variety of articles on the latest in handmade artistry. In 2006, started by Ilysa Bierer, the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE) was formed. Today 87 members strong, PCAGOE provides a forum for polymer clay artists to showcase new and exciting techniques, discuss designs and materials, problem solve, and even encourages friendly competition with a monthly challenge. The Guild has supported with the artistry, time and consideration of its members, many different charities. This past spring, tiny clay decorated Bottles of Hope were designed by many members to be donated to cancer patients at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Massachusetts.
