  1. Just a short visit from Carrot Top . . thinking of you today.

    1. Thanks Daddy! Love you!

  2. Hi Katie. I just signed up for you’re emails. I came across you through Ginger Allman and your month long “studio” articles . I was wondering how you met her.

    1. Hi Sue! Thanks for coming over & joining me here. Ginger & I “met” online actually. I started to get to know her through several mutual polymer clay groups we are in. She’s a wonderful lady. I just love her to pieces!

  3. I have a cousin who is a missionary for the American Baptist Churches over in St. Petersburg, Russia. His name is Kevin Plaster and his wife Tammy is the principal of the international Christian school there.

    If you would like to know more, please message me and I will e-mail you one of his newsletters he sends out. I myself attend a independent Baptist Church here in Del City, Oklahoma as there aren’t many American Baptist churches here. When we lived in Amarillo, Texas back in the late 60’s and early 70’s, we attended Antioch Missionary Baptist Church there, which was affiliated with the American Baptist Churches. Anyway, I am also a polymer clay artist, focusing on jewelry and ornaments. My FaceBook name is Linda Alato Dyson. I have a couple of FaceBook pages, one is called Simply Susan’s Handmade Jewelry and the other is Dyson PolyClay Designs. Look me up and maybe we can encourage each other!

    1. Hey Linda! Nice to “meet” you. I removed the address information for your cousin to help protect him & the church. My prayers will be with him. Thank you for joining me here on the site!
