Had a great birthday...

I've been spending most of my time in my bat cave (studio), having a blast with a ton of polymer clay supplies that Peri sent me for my birthday.  I was so excited to tear into the box, that I didn't take any pictures.  There will be pictures coming of projects already completed, but in the mean time here is a picture of what my hubby got me.

I collect Barbies. Lots of them are headless and naked, but most of them are actually collectible like these. They look vintage, but are not. It's a current series made with the original Barbie face.

So that's it for now.  If you have any ideas for jewelry or items that you want to see made from polymer clay, let me know and I'll give it a go.  I have already made a crazy steampunk bird using the instructions from one of Christi Friesen books that Peri sent me, and it is a sight to behold. Who know what else might arise from the depths of my studio?... we'll see.

Ok, I'm really leaving now.  It's getting ready to rain here, so we are going to try to beat the store to run a few errands.  Have fun and stay safe and creative.

My sister also collects naked, headless Barbies. Who knew there were others who participate in this hobby? But, anyway, she makes one Barbie out of many Barbies and then makes them new clothes.
