New in the Studio - Space themed items
The Polymer Clay Smoosher's challenge theme this month was "Space". I created two items and posted them late last night. First, a rather irritated alien lady. She has three eyes, and glows in the dark: My second item, is a stylized Blue Moon pendant, which also glows in the dark: They're both made with glow in the dark polymer clay. The alien lady's eye stalks are clay covered head pins, anchored into the clay. For the Blue Moon pendant, I shaped it by hand and added the crater shapes…

This week's featured Polymer Clay Smoosher guild member is Catswire. Catswire hails from Germany, where she lives with her husband and four kitties. She is an avid crocheter of wire. Yep, wire rather than threads or yarn. It makes for some really interesting pieces! And recently, she's started working with polymer clay and is merging the two mediums together for some great items. Go take a look! Just look at this cute little fruit basket! Polymer clay fruit, and crocheted wire…

Guild Featured Studio - Craft Baby Hope
The featured guild member this week for Shops with Less than (10) Sales is Craft Baby Hope. This studio also happens to be a member of Polymer Clay Smooshers, too! So the story behind Jennifer's studio is all proceeds from her sales are going toward a savings fund for at least one round of IVF (in-vitro fertilization), which due to some unfortunate pre-existing conditions, insurance will not cover any of, where she lives. So, she must save up for the expensive treatment on her own. Please go…

I'm ecstatic! It is only a few dollars, but really I don't care, I am happy nevertheless!! This is what I sold: I can still hardly believe it! It's already on its way to California to its new owner, I hope she likes it! It put me in such a great mood I decided to add a couple more listings for some…

Polymer Clay Snowmen Charms - Item of the Day
I know that practically everyone who's currently being buried in snow will probably give me an exasperated look at the mere thought of something even remotely related to snow, but hey, this is the closest thing we get to that white stuff where I live! But the best part about these little guys is, they aren't freezing cold, and they won't melt!
