It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Pam, that necklace is gorgeous!!! Thumbs up What I'm really attracted to is the 'medallion' or whatever you call it? If my eyes aren't deceiving me, is that a dragonfly I see? Lovey dubby

I want to make a full spread for him...and it will have a design...so I have to start working...it may take me a year of full time working on it...and two years if I don't work full time. So need to start now!:)

omg, you know one of the guys on my co-op posted a photo of an afghan he crocheted. I think he said it took him 11 days! He had it draped on the front of his car in the pic so it was good sized. No way could my fingers move that fast - lol

I can do a good sized one in 2 weeks if that is all I do all day and I do it in easy stitches...but if I do a pattern or change colors it will def take me a lot longer. I figure with this one...it will be color changes and doing Lettering and I know I want to take my time and get it perfect:)

I finally got my stupid metal frog "beaded", a little faster than I was on my first attempt but still a lonnnnnng process. Why do I come up with these 'brilliant' ideas? Grumbling I'll post some pics soon...I even added some 'baubles' to my metal dragonfly for eyes. Even though beading will never be listed as one of my Hobbies, my garden art now has some "bling"!

Question...has anyone ever done work with Mosaics? I've got a rusty old iron table that should have been painted years ago but I just never got around to it. One of the books I've been studying (Creative Concrete for the Garden) has a lot of mosaic projects and I've been thinking this small table might be perfect project to experiment with. Whistling

Pam, I think you mentioned somewhere in these threads an interest in Polymer Clay...have you ever worked with it before? I was never familiar with it until you mentioned it but I've been doing research and picked up a few supplies last week to try my hand at it. There's so many amazing things you can do with it!!! I probably won't have a chance until next month to play around with it but I suspect this could be a very addicting hobby! Rolling my eyes.

I love polymer clay, so many things I'd like to try with it! I've had particular fun making "snakes" whose cross-section is either concentric rings of different colors or a simple flower... slice them for butterfly wings, beads, etc... just now I had the thought that I've seen thin slices like that used to cover a little box, bet it would be really cute all over a little terra cotta pot!

I did a "kid craft" article for DG about making simple ladybugs to decorate potted plants... I know you'll get a lot more complicated, but thought you might like the idea of hanging a decoration over the rim of a pot... (the ladybug sits on a curved leaf). http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/2818/

Even if it didn't stick to the cement when "fired" in the oven, the clay would be the right shape, and you could easily attach it with glue/adhesive. (I've started using one of the varieties of "Goop" adhesive for nearly every sticky project.)

Jill, I was so busy this spring that I never saw your article - thanks for the link!!! What a cute little "critter"! Thumbs up You know I've actually been looking at this little frog I have that clings to the side of my pots and thinking, now why can't I do something like that? Now maybe I can! Big Grin

Quoting:RCN, Wonder how the Polymer Clay would work into the cement projects you are working on?


Hilarious! Thinking right up my alley! Smiling Actually that's what got me started researching the clay. I was trying to figure out an easier way to 'decorate' the spheres without having to actually build up the cement for carving. Everything I read however leads me to believe that the Polymer Clay wouldn't hold up if left outside. However the "Sculpey Ultra Light" I bought is hopefully going to be just the ticket to make leaves that will float INSIDE the spheres. Thumbs up I'll have to bring them inside over the winter but I'll be emptying the sphere for winter anyway! With the information I've found it looks like there might be A LOT of possibilities with this clay. Whistling

I have several of those frogs and one of them is made from a material that reminds me of that clay can't say for sure but I think it could be.
Will be interesting to see how your projects turn out. I'll get a couple of close ups of that frog to post for you when I get home. I am babysitting Lucas again today. Too Lily to her preschool this morning. What a neet school Jen has her in.

I haven't tried much with the clay yet either. Probably won't be until Jan.

Pam, I almost dug out the clay yesterday when I was in my workshop to try it out. Ended up getting too busy with other things so I never got a chance. At this rate it might be January for me too! Rolling my eyes.

Cubits has two very talented Polymer artists!!! One of our new MAM members, Lynn (azreno) has some incredible creations on her Cubit: Desert Rubble http://cubits.org/DesertRubble/ and Chris (goldfinch4) has the cutest little critters in Garden Buddies http://cubits.org/GardenBuddies/ . I could never hope to create anything on their level but I'm going to give a whirl anyway! Whistling

I have seen Chris (goldfinch4) work and she does make the cutest little things.
Now that it is getting dark so early I have been thinking about digging out my X-Stitch materials. This seems to be the time of year I work on those things.

I am working on a beaded embroidered bracelet right now. Been on the arts and crafts site The Hive a lot lately
http://creatingthehive.com/
All types of crafts there, beading, clay, card making, you name it. Wow, it is really something to see all the different crafts and how differently each person works with it.
