Like you see artists that are all about wire wrapping, or polymer or soldered tin or or or..... I keep it simple when I do any of these techniques, and blend them together... Some people get so into one technique its like... "Hey isn't it cool that I can make this out of polymer" without realizing that if you don't know the medium or care, aren't considering buying the tutorial the result of the technique isn't that fantastic. Maybe that's just the case with polymer clay.

Sneak Peek

Well, I have things to show but it's been dark and stormy these last couple days so the photo situation isn't fantastic for those of us who like to start our workdays at 3pm. 

So since I have to go out of town to be an aunt this weekend, I thought I'd leave you with little snippets, sneak peeks, as they say, if I may, as it were (...wow all those phrases mean the same thing and sound similar).

You know, it's very strange for me to see all these details crammed together like this. 

It shows me that in its own grungy way, my stuff is quite colorful, full of little faces and characters.

Even the non-anthropomorphic items seem to me to be little characters and have faces of a sort.

And as much as I'd like to be serious and masculine, there's all kinds of cute girly details.

But it's also very fun, so screw serious. I'm like the least serious person I know.

Also check out this craft I'm going to do with my niece and her two sleepover guests:

(Except where she says to put the caps on, if you do that, the bottles will explode. Ahem.)
