Spotlight on: Into the Dawn
This week's Polymer Clay Smooshers' spotlight artisan is Into the Dawn Designs.
Dawn is a dabbler in many crafts, including calligraphy, rubber stamping, candlemaking, and glass etching, just to name a few. Her current focus if of course on polymer clay, although she incorporates some of her other crafts into her polymer clay items to enhance and embellish them. Here are a few of my favorites from her studio:

Craft Baby Hope - featured guild member at two places

Since she is(was) featured in both, I'll share a few more items than I typically do. Also, make sure to visit her, she is having a 10% off sale, and all proceeds go toward her fertility treatments. She only needs one more…

Guild Featured Studio - Critter Crafts
This week's Shops with Less than (10) Sales featured guildmember is Critter Crafts.
The gal at this studio makes durable dog toys (and a few catnip toys for kitties), after she grew tired of her own cockapoo destroying store bought toys in as little as a day. She says the lifespan of her toys is about a year.
Here are a few of the dog & cat toys she has available at her studio:
She's five sales away from graduating from the guild, please go help her out to reach that goal!

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, she must save up for the expensive treatment on her own. Please go…
