My Studio

 I like to listen to nature music while I create.  But, I was in the middle of a movie (TV to the left) when I decided to take a photo of my studio.  Table to the left with all the paints is where I paint.  Table behind it is for Paperclay, papier mache, sewing and beading.  The table behind that is for polymer clay.  Table at a right angle to the polymer table is for photography (white tent all the way in the back).
 Neat and clean work surface above, but it won't stay that way for long.

When I get free time, I am sitting sculpting more GranPods.  I really enjoy making these guys.

Studio Clean Up

I purchased 60 yards of material.  Yes, you read that correctly.  I made table skirts and dust covers for two 6' tables and one 10'.  I also made a dust cover for my photography tent.  Still in the process of going through things and rearranging cabinets.  But, I really like how the table skirts hide the plastic storage bins under the tables.  A bin for jewelry bits and pieces (which I wish I had more of).  A bin for felting supplies.  A bin for doll making supplies.  And, a bin for my newest obsession of shabby chic holiday trees.

Ghouhl Friends Till The End

It's the Ghoul Friend pins making their Ghoulish Entrance again (get it? enTRANCE).  The Ghoul Friends work the graveyard shift and, make no bones about it, they think it is the best.  No ghouling around, they think every shroud has a silver lining.  They look forward to going out after work to party, but, don't worry, they practice safe hex.  They love going out to eat.  But no handburgers or halloweiners for them.  Nope, only the finest quality health food.  Why?  Because it is super natural.   Muwahahahahaha, so begins the Halloween season.

Enchanted Polymer Clay

An enchanted forest polymer clay necklace with tiny pebble steps leading up to a mysterious door.  I am reading a children's book from the 1950's "The Borrower's" by Mary Norton.  I love the creativity and humor of this little book.  It made me think about this polymer clay necklace I made a couple of years ago and have started wearing it again.  Fun and smiles.
