Guilt free crafting time






Today starts 2 days of guilt free crafting. My Husband Jose will be going to Chicago for 2 days to visit family. I am going to turn off the phone and get to it, YIPPEE.






What will I make today?



Some new beads maybe?


I like the ones in the photo I made the other day. I listed these in my Etsy shop but I would like a set for myself. They would make such a pretty bracelet.



I love making beads they are part of the reason I got into polymer clay. I had been making jewelry for years but I was getting bored with the beads I was able to find locally and I needed a way to make my jewelry different from others. Polymer clay was the answer. With it I am able to have any shape, color or design I can dream up. With polymer clay the possibilities are endless.

Of course beads led to other items. I enjoyed making this sculpted mirror for a friend. she is going to give it to her Mother in law for a gift. The whole mirror is made from polymer clay; I never use paint on the things I make all even tho it looks like it's painted.

I am not sure what I will make today but I can guarantee it will be colorful and it will have flowers of some kind on it..........

The cats have been fed and Jose is on his way so I am off to get busy............
