Steampunk Chameleon

Here is the Steampunk Chameleon I made during Christie F. workshop. I thought I could spend more time with her, but Ada was sick and had to go to the hospital. It was so nice to meet and said hello to on-line friends who took times to come.
Many had sent items or items for the auction. Kathy and Le Anne were so overwhelmed with the generosity . We had received about 80 items. It turns out to be a big task, so please be patient while we figure out what to do. We will put it on e-bay.
I still playing with clay when I have a chance. Just making simple beads and make some bracelets. It is hard to do big project since I barely have time to sit at my table.

I also make these dangling things. It can be used to decorate the cell phone or hanging on the purse. It is the good way to use odds and ends. Rachael, Ada's friend, who comes to see Ada every Thursday is getting married. I make those for her as wedding favor. I think I need to make about 200. No fear. As for my own wedding favors, I hand-painted 1000 key chains by myself. Oh yes, we had that many guests at the wedding. It was an all day long event, started from 7.00 am through midnight.

Another good new is that I will have a chance to go to the retreat in July. An angle had grant my wish. Thinking about claying all day make me feel guilty, but I do need to leave the house and do my thing.
I am so touch with the kindness and generosity of Polymer Clay community. One group in particular is the "Claypen" at Polymer Clay Central chat room. Every Thursday at 11.30 am., claypens from around the world will come together and share what we make, ask questions, answer questions, and talk about everything. Here is the photo album of what we made and share every week. Stop by if you have time. Log in through Polymer Clay Central. Those girls rock.

Dear Yessica
I have another blog where you can find out about how I made my beads. I haven't written anything for a while since my daughter's accident but there are quite a lot you can lean and may be make your own beads.
Anymore question, please let me know.
