What's new?

Well, I gave it a shot but I couldn't keep up with the photo of the day.  There were just some days that I couldn't get out to take a picture and there are only so many things I could find around the house to photograph.

I liked the idea, but who was I kidding?  It's hard for me to commit to anything.  I think it's the Attention Deficit, or the OCD, or my anxiety,   If you've been following me for any length of time, you are aware of my inability to focus, concentrate, follow through, etc.    I am not shy to talk about it either.  Plus, I'm feeling a little bit depressed and who feels like driving around to take pictures when you don't even feel like leaving the house?

One thing remains steady though and it's my art.  I can't let a day go by without working on some kind of project.  Yesterday I made some charms, a fairy poster, clay fairy houses, and valentine cards.  The cards are for my grand daughters, one who likes zebras and the other who loves my Purple Monkey books. 

I'm going to print out several of them and then the girls can cut them out
and pass them out to friends.  I have several DIY valentine's cards in
my Etsy shop.

I can personalize them with your child's name on the bottom of each card so all they have to do is cut them out and give them to their friends.

I don't even know if anyone was following my photo of the day challenge
and if anyone was, I apologize.  But, since no one ever left a comment I don't think anyone is disappointed and if you are following this blog, I bet it's to see clay!  Right?

I'm going to do a garden show in March.  I'm making miniature fairy furniture and fairies and posters.  It should be fun and hopefully, I can make some money.  Here is one of my fairy furniture sets.  It's a couch, two chairs and a table,  all made from clay in my favorite color combination.

I also am going to do a tutorial this week for you..something for St. Patty's day so stay tuned!

Glisten is the word for today

Sun peaking out behind a cloud, has a nice GLISTEN to it, don't you think?  The edges are glistening too.

I love taking pictures of the clouds.  It's been sunny and bright here in Michigan for the past few days and if I look up into the sky I can almost feel that feeling that I get when I'm on the beach in the late afternoon, after everyone goes home and there's that warm sunlight glistening on the lake.  I took this picture of the lake in August.  Don't you want to be there right now, I know I do.

Day 17 photo challenge word is CREATION

I finally finished my latest CREATION.  This was very time consuming and tedious but I enjoyed doing it.  The end result was worth it all.  I put this on etsy for $55.00 just to see if anyone was interested.  If they started selling, I would make more, but as for now, this is it.

I made all of the tiles with polymer clay imprinted with rubber stamps.  Then I baked them and cut them, glued them on the wooden birdhouse, grouted, and shined.  Lots of work and definitely one of a kind!

Day 16, which I missed,,boooooo

I totally forgot to post my picture yesterday.  I have a lot of stressful things on my mind so it's understandable.  Today's word is circle.  I like the reflection in the cups and the glass.  Anyway, I guess I have too many circles and I only needed one.  Some days you just have to make it up as you go along.

Happiness is the photo challenge word of the day

I think my clay puts a little happiness is people's lives.  Might only be for a moment, but my clay babies always make people smile.  Working with clay, making pigs and monkeys brings ME happiness.  Pink always gives me a little happiness!

Here's a cake topper I made for a customer.  I sure hope it brings her some happiness!

Nature is the photo challenge word of the day

I had big plans today to take some nice pictures of Hines Park.  I was over in my old neighborhood and figured I could drive back home through the park, but, as luck would have it, the park was closed, probably due to flooding.  So, I had an idea to drive over to another park where there was an old abandoned bathroom that was covered in graffiti.  I figured I could do my WORD photo.  When I got there, it was a pile of rubble.  I was beginning to get a little frustrated.

So I headed back home.  I decided to drive through Garden City Park and I snapped this picture.  Here it is January 14 and the park looks like the end of November.  There isn't a spot of snow or ice in sight, just decaying leaves and bare trees.  Nature sure is fickle, isn't she?  (not that I'm complaining).

Photo Challenge word of the day is Vibrant

I love having art and crafts supplies.  I have a bunch of pipe cleaners that I bought and I finally found a use for them.  Snapping a picture for Vibrant.  I put a plastic wrap filter on it for fun and it gave it an organic look,,kind of creepy.  I did a lot today, took about 70 pictures of Easter clay and did several custom orders.  I'll post pictures of the special orders tomorrow.  In the meantime, here are a few valentine clay sets and one bunny.

Twilight is the photo challenge word of the day

I know I missed a day and technically I've missed two days because it is 1:30 am as I'm doing today's photo. I got worried about the other photo I had used so here is a new twilight photo.  There, I feel better now.
