My mom, always got up on Wednesdays and declared excitedly "It's Hump Day". For those of you unfamiliar with this term, she meant that when work was done, she was over the hump and on the downside, sliding into the weekend.
Anyway, it is Wednesday and I really don't have anything to report, except that once again the forecast said snow and we have bright sunshine and 23 degrees with a wind chill of 9 degrees, and no snow.
I have been trying out several different things in my studio. I will be doing a little giveaway next week in honor of Valentine's day. Something heart related, of course, and while I was trying this and that, just like the Mad Scientist that I am, I realized that I have glow in the dark polymer clay.
Glow in the Dark Clay??? Does it work? That can't possibly work! Prove it !!
Yes, wee ones, it really does glow in the dark. Not for very long periods of time, but hold it up to the light and it gets re-energized. All glow-in-the-dark products contain phosphors. A phosphor is a substance that radiates visible light after being energized. To make a glow-in-the-dark object, what you want is a phosphor that is energized by normal light and that has a very long persistence.

Well that's all for now, except to wish everyone a Happy Hump Day. It like having a holiday every week. Take care and stay warm and safe.
