the passing of a great artist…etc

While I have been online, I have not been responding to the posts on my groups as I usually do. But have been reading and today there was a post about the passing of a very great artist and friend of the PC world, that some of you probably know or have heard of, Alan Vernall. Alan belonged to at least one of the groups that I do and he was always there to help us out. He had a great since of humor. He will be sadly missed by everyone. My condolences go out to his beautiful wife Mary, family and friends.
I haven’t written in here in so long and now I have a lot to talk about. I have been busy doing research for my brother-in-law and that took a lot of my time. But it was well worth it as I think I found the items he needed to be able to go back to work. I love doing research but sometimes it gets frustrating when you can’t find what you are looking for. But it feels so good when you do run across the very thing you needed. Gives me a good feeling about myself. Especially when I am helping someone. 

I have also been busy doing Halloween items. We will be working theCounty Fair here in our town the week of Sept. 21st and I am planning on taking a few of my things to show. Hopefully I will sell a few. I have some in my Flickr album if you would like to check them out and make comments (nice ones please LOL) if you like.
I have also started adding vintage items to my Etsy shop.  I have found some really nice jewelry and clothes patterns.  That has been fun as I love the older things.  And of course like a good deal and then to pass it on to someone else.
Also I have made some texture stamps out of polymer clay, they are just little round disks and I got to wondering what I was going to put them on so I could use them easier. Well I got to thinking about the tops to pop/water bottles. I save these” just in case” so I had quite a few of them. I just glued the stamp on the cap. I haven’t used them yet so I don’t know how long the glue will hold or if it will ever be a problem. I have pix of those in the Flickr also. Let me know what you think.

And last be certainly not least to all of my Texas readers who are facing the Hurricane Ike, I am praying that you will make it thru this troubled time without any heartships. May God bless you all and your families and friends.

I hope everyone has had a good month since last I wrote and I will try to write more often.  I think of things I want to put in here but just never seem to have enough time in the day to do all that I want to do.





NEW Charity Shop on Etsy

I belong to PCAWW ,

and we have a member who is starting a charity shop (PCFAC) on Etsy
This is in honor of her daughter and every 4 mos. Polymer Clay Artist Guild on Etsy will vote on a charity to give 100% of all sales from this site. Here is one thing that Angela said about her site:
“There have been a few post out now that have talked about terrible things that poeple do….stealing art, re-selling, ect. I will do my best and post as much as I can about the charity that is choosen and maybe after we doante once or twice people will feel better about doanting. I am doing this in my daughters honor and the last thing that I would do is screw that over/up.”  As you can see Angela is very dedicated to this.

This is a real good cause and she could use our help.  If you feel you can donate something pls. contact:

Polymer Clay for a Cause
PO Box 470100
Aurora, CO

And by the way she has Polymer Cafe willing to look at posting it in their
magazine, when this gets up and going…think about the free
advertizing that might give you 🙂 and it is tax deductable.

And the biggest plus of all is the feeling you get from helping someone.
