This project was inspired by the work of the wonderfully talented Dr. Ron Lehocky. This past week Ron showcased some of his new hearts. And to say that there were inspiring is an understatement. I’ve always enjoyed Ron’s hearts, but the simplicity and theme of this batch really got to me. Great work Ron!Continue reading Saint Patrick’s Day Hearts & Pendants

POLYMER CLAY TUTORIAL
First, I must begin by saying that there are few things in this world that I hate more than bugs. This being said, I find bugs gross … they give me to heebie-jeebies! Because of this you will see that my take on bugs is nothing like Christi’s take on bugs (more on that next week) … but because I love each of you who are working diligently through Christi’s books, I too made an ugly bug *sigh* … but please know that there will not be another. You can make lots of ugly bugs, but I will leave it at this one (who will be given away soon an a semi-devious plot, read on for details).
In fact, in my ideal world, bugs would be cute and cuddly, just like Parker.
But that’s enough of my bug-o-phobia … how about we get started on our hearts & bug for another awesome Friesen Friday filled with polymer clay tutorials?
