Learning curve

Well, one thing I have learned already, is if you post your post to see how lovely it looks! (lol) you can't then go and edit and add more photos. Or at least I can't find out how! So had to make a whole new post to add a few pictures of some of the canes that I have made. I have many more that need to be photographed, but that hasn't happened yet! Hope you like them!!

Here is one of my earlier canes. In the beginning it took me a few hours to complete each one. I am thankful that it is getting easier!

I got these cool little pendant trays, and fill with clay then cover with magic gloss. I love how they feel, and how rich the magic gloss makes the clay look!!

Blue flower....sorry for bad pics...working on that!

Pink flower....pretty original with the names eh??!!

WELL......I have to say, that I am proud of myself. It is hard to put MY work out there. Scared someone might say something that will hurt my feelings!! lol But remember what I said is time to put the big girl panties on and just do it! So there it is! First of many! Thanks for taking a peek!

Photos are here!!!

Well, as promised, I am going to add a picture or two!! This one doesn't have any clay in it, but it is a new design for 2010. It is a little miss leading as it looks like a double strand. It isn't. It is just a long necklace, and I had to photograph it like this to show it all!!

Giving it a go again!!

Well, I figured that I enjoy looking at other peoples blogs....maybe someone might enjoy mine! But I figure I don't have much to say!! It has been an interesting year for me. Business wise....not so great. I am sorta in a time of thinking and rethinking things through and trying to decide what is the best course of action I should take.

I do really really enjoy making what I make and doing what I I think I just need to put on the big girl panties and get out there and not be shy to show my stuff. I guess I just feel like so many are better than me....which is true, but that is just fine!! So, I will try to post my creations and yak about it.

My goals for September is to finally get my etsy and artfire shops up and running. I have been paying on my Artfire shop for a year...and you guessed it, it has been empty!!!

I think I will be adding both made jewelry and supplies. The supplies will be out of polymer clay, which is my newest love!! Maybe some destash at times too.

I will be putting in beads, and raw polymer canes. I am really enjoying making canes, but I have to figure out HOW to send them! I know there is a way, cause a lot of people do it. But I have to figure out a way to get it through the slot that ships cheaper at the post office. Crazy how expensive it is to mail things.

So, hopefully soon, I will post some pictures and get this new ball a rolling!!

Have a great and creative day,
