I might just have to...

buy this new book by Christi Friesen! It is called "Birds of a Feather", and it looks awesome. Birds are so much fun to make with clay!

Happy Etsy Day!!!

How will you celebrate Etsy Day?

I have decided to shop!

I am going to use Pounce to find an UNDISCOVERED seller.

I will post who I "discovered" tomorrow.

The Fine Print: This promotion is being sponsored by independent Etsy shop owners, not Etsy.com. We're just excited about it.

Tweety Long Legs

I have been trying to come up with a way to make my birds with poseable legs. I think that they would look so cute in a group, all with legs of various lengths. Here is the first "tweety long legs" that I made. I am still trying to come up with a sturdier version...
Look at those big feet!

April 2009: polymer clay artwork

Here is my polymer clay art piece for April (ooops! I never did one for March...I hope to make it up soon!). Also, I have decided that they don't have to be 5x7 inch.
"Desert Bird", April 2009

My previous two pieces (January and February) had a "cactus flower" theme. I have decided to broaden that theme to include anything "desert".

Toho seed beads...SALE!

I had originally made these earrings to enter in the seed bead category of the Bead Star contest. I ultimately went with something else...so, I have listed them in my Etsy shop. I named them "trendsetter", because I used seed bead colors inspired by the Pantone 2009 spring color report.
Oh...and I am having a SALE on all TOHO size 8/0 seed beads in my eBay store!!!
