Wow two posts in one day.

I haven’t posted in here in awhile so I thought I should catch up a little.  I haven’t been feeling real well and it is about to get to me.  I just don’t feel up to doing the things I want to do and I don’t like that.  Anyone who is suffering from a chronic disease knows what I mean.  You have your good days and bad, but when the bad out weigh the good you start to get depressed.  That is where I am right now.  I usually won’t write in here when I am like this because I don’t want to bring anyone else down with me.

All that being said, I have had some good things happen in the last week.  First my DD and I went up north for two days and one night, last week-end.  We had a good time, went shopping and visited my DS  youngest son. 

 I love those week-ends when we just hang out.  It don’t come to often my DH is a very busy Mother of two great boys. She is an outdoors kind of girl and raises a big garden and does all kinds of canning and freezing. She is a master gardener and starting a new career in teaching.

Her Birthday was this past Friday so we spent so time with her and her family and eat this new cake that I made. It had layers of fresh strawberries, blueberries, angel food cake and whipped topping.  OH sooooooo good.  Not diet that day.  haha

I made her a necklace and earring set and a jewerly box.  The picture is in my Flickr album.  Some of you have already seen it and have commented on them.

I haven’t been real busy with my polymer lately I get some ideas but just don’t seem to be able to work on them.  Hopefully this week will be different and I will get some of those done.  I want to add some to my Etsy store.  I made a sale last week and that really made my day.  I haven’t sold much but then I don’t work on it like I should.  If any one has an ideas that would help me out I would be glad to hear them.

Well until next time I hope you all are in good health and are happy.

Happy Clay-zie Day, CraftyLinda

Two sites to check out

I was looking around for some ideas this morning and ran across this site. Krafty Lady.

What a world of inspiration, moulds and information. She has moulds of everything you

can think of, leaf, frogs, masks, faces, corners to make your own frames for scrap booking.

Not only does she show you the moulds but has pictures of some of the things that were created

using those moulds. I have spent an hour on her site and haven’t seen a 1/4 of what she has.

She has Ostrich feathers, thistle weed, Egypt design, Christmas, Easter, I could go on and on

but I think you should go and have a look for yourself. Make sure you have everything you need for

a long sit down because you will want to stay there awhile.

Also while I was looking around on her site I found another site that sells Krafty Lady moulds.

http://www.amstamps.com

Which has tutorials, challenges and contests. She also sales things like jewelry bails, pin backs and glue, etc.

 

They have what is called Memories Mist which creates fantasy textured effects on any surface.

I can’t say I know how you use them but it says it can be heat set on any porous surface such

as clay. They have some really nice patterns. And a flat rate shipping of $5.00.

You can sign up to her mailing list to get the latest on the challenges and other things.

I hope you have enjoyed my blogging about these sites and will take a look at them.

Also while you are here I would like to mention that I am going to be adding some new things to my Etsy shop, in the next few days.  Please take a look when you have the time. Thanks.

Have a great day and hope to “see” you in a few days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added some new soft wear, and crayola art

Boy I didn’t realize it had been so long since I did anything on here.  I have been so busy.  I took a week-end vacation with my daughter and visited my youngest son.  That was a good time I had not seen him in a year so it was nice.

My Daughter-in-law and her two boys came for a visit.  I had not seen the new baby. He is now 8 months old and just the cutest.  Her oldest is just turned 3 years.  My do they ever change when you don’t get to see them very often.

I added some new software to my pc.  I have had it for a while but never downloaded it.  Boy am I glad I did.  It is photosuite5 by Roxio.  And it offers so much more than the HP photosmart that I usually use.  This one has borders,frames,edges and some awesome editing.  You can even remove wrinkles!!!  I have been having fun with that today.  Now I have a couple new pictures to put in my flickr account.

I think I mentioned that I was working on a pendant inspired by a painting called Four Winds.  While I put some pictures of that in my flickr I am still working on it but I thought I would show some of it anyway.

I also found a cool tutorial on abalone and made a cane of that and have done a few things with it.  I have pictures of those also but like the pendant they are works in progress.

I did manage to make and finish a Bottle of Hope for my daughters Mother-in-law.  She loves Great Danes so that is what I made for her.  It is bigger than the usual BOH I used an empty white diamonds perfume bottle because I wanted the height.  I think it turned out pretty good. I have put those pictures in my flickr also. 

I received an email from a friend of mine the other day with some pictures from a crayola crayon artist.  His name is Don  Marco.  He does some of the most awesome pictures I have ever seen.  I had to find his whole web site so went looking around today and I found it here.    http://www.themastercrayonartist.com/shop/custcat.aspx

I just love American Indian stuff and western and he has quite a few on his site.  He also sells them.  I hope you enjoy looking around his site as much as I did.  His works are way to expensive for me to buy so I will just have to bookmark his site and go back to it often.  His is a remarkable story also.

Well until the next time have a happy clay-zie day everyone.

I changed my work room

Wow I have had a busy day.  First my husband and I went garage saleing.  That is something we really like to do and sometimes we find so really good bargains.  Today I did. I found the neatest kit for $1.00.  It is plastic and you put it together like a model car only these are reptiles, a large frog, turtle, snake etc. It has details on how to paint them.  The big frog even has his insides.  I guess it is like a science kit for kids. I have I pic of the box in my Flickr.  I thought I could use them for texture and also for a model for when I am sculpting. 

 I also got an unopened pkg. of T-shirt transfer papers for $5.00.  The regular price is still on it at $15.95.  I think I made some pretty good deals.

When I got home I decided since I wasn’t really working on anything at the time it would be a good time to change my work room around.  It took me all day but I really think I am going to like it.  I have pic of both before and after in my flickr also.

Oh and while I think of it I bought these two little knife like things that are old.  I am not sure what they are used for.  If anyone knows I sure would appreciate it if you would let me know.  They are also pictured in my Flickr. Which is probably going to show on this home page since they are the last pic I uploaded.

Well this old gal is really tired so am going to head for bed.  Talk to you again soon.  Thanks for reading and

Happy Clay-zie Day, CraftyLinda
