Busy Busy...

I have been one busy woman lately.  I have been busy creating custom orders for customers.
I made a couple VW bugs for one customer (one ornament and one photo holder).
Beep Beep...
I also made these holders for a little boy's birthday party.
I have a few more customs I am working on now.  If you have something in mind for Christmas, please contact me as soon as you can.  As you can imagine, Christmas gets pretty busy around here.

In between everything else, I painted my porch finally!  Only took me almost 6yrs to get around to doing it.  The color was supposed to be darker.  I guess when Jeff bought it a couple months ago, he grabbed the wrong color swatch to get.  Still looks 100% better than it did.  Now we just have to install the new iron.
I also had something really cool happen to me at the end of last week.  I was contacted by Polyform Products, the Sculpey people!!  They LOVE my creations and are looking for new designers to work with.  I talked with them a couple days ago and am happy to report I am going to be creating projects for them.  I am on cloud 9!  When I started working with polymer clay many many years ago, I always called it sculpey clay.  You see, I had no idea that it was called polymer clay and calling it sculpey clay was like calling tissues, Kleenex. 

Off to go play with some clay.  =)
