Blue and White Ornaments

A Blue Sharpie, a smooth, plastic ornament and some basic shapes make for a pretty ornament. As seen on Pinterest, wipe the ornament with some rubbing alcohol, use a pattern or make one up, take your marker and start drawing.  I sealed mine with PYMII.  
The mirrored balls are on a timer.  I mixed 2 strings of battery operated lighted mirrored balls in with the ornaments.  The glass vase and crystal pillar candle holder are from Goodwill.  I'm so happy with this arrangement.  It's also my nightlight. I love how soft the lighting is.  I'm going to hate to take it down.

Holiday Decorating

The small tree in my master bedroom is decorated with vintage rhinestone jewelry and jeweled fruit.  Can't wait for the holiday trees to go on deep discount so I can get a larger one with a revolving stand.  They need some room to sparkle.  Some pieces were my grandmother's, some my mother's, some my friends and the rest I couldn't pass up.  Hope your holidays are going well and you are staying warm and cozy.

Riding Along

"Just Riding Along".  Polymer clay figure dressed in air dry polymer clay sitting on a purchased animal.  Kind of like me just riding along everyday still recuperating from a knee revision and a hip replacement and have 3 more weeks of physical therapy.  Now have a new issue to deal with; a blood clot in my left lung.  Ya know, it's not the way to start out the New Year!

Beaded Spiral Icicles

I have made close to 40 of these beaded icicles.  Some for hanging on the tree, some on the chandelier and some on me!  The Beads Knees has graciously provided a free tutorial HERE.  The pattern was removed from the internet a few years ago, but is now back up.  Enjoy!

Mermaid on Red Vase

 Translucent polymer clay sculpted onto a crystal vase.
Detail of vase.  I ended up removing all of the first layer because it felt too busy.  I ended up with the swirls of seaweed and liked it better.

Floating Tree

I "finger painted" the translucent polymer clay onto both sides of this leaded crystal vase.
