Excessively Cool Molds

24 comments
My clay pal Penni Jo makes the world's best molds!  You know how hard it is to find a perfect cab mold?  Penni Jo has them.  That and many more, too!  I have a few and love them!  I used Armorall once, when I first got them, and since then, I haven't even needed mold release.  How cool is that?  She is making texture sheets, too.  Now, I don't know if that's such a good idea as I am a texture junkie and will probably have to open a direct deposit to her account.  :(  Sigh...... http://bestflexiblemolds.com/Misc.htm  So, go have a look if you are in the market for molds.  Go on...shoo, shoo... go look.  :)

Oh Boy! A Big Fat Sale!

2 comments
So, whaddaya think?  I decided that a mid-summer sale on my Etsy shop is in order.  I have tons of earrings made so I thought a $5.00 sale would be cool.  If I see a sale like that I'm THERE!  Perfect for gifts for all those people you want "just a little something" for at Holiday time.  And you get to wear them in the meantime.  :D  I did NOT say that!  Did I?  :D  Bad moe.  :(

So, here's a few photos of what I'm offering.

In Stringing Mode

6 comments
As you all know, I made these faux amber and the faux cinnabar a little while ago.  Lacking inspiration to string them, they just sat on my table.  Then, yesterday, inspiration struck and this is the joyful result.  What do you think?

My Brown Period

4 comments
Artists have color periods where they paint in one predominant color.  I guess it's the thing to do.  :)  Anyway, without me even thinking about it, today was My Brown Period.  My clay pal Mary Kay made me these really great canes and gave them to me.  What a girl!  3 cheers for MK Ozarks!  Hip, hip, hooray!!!!  And big fat smoochies to YOU, MK!  :D  And to you, Kathi for all the cool canes YOU have given me!  And to YOU, Jacks!  And YOU, Caro!  And YOU, Sis!  Rats.  I think Blogspot is going to run out of room here.  :)  But, to all of you who have given me canes, a hundred thousand thank yous!

So, anyway, I gathered all the cool beads from MK's canes along with beads from other people's canes and made this long necklace.  Normally, I don't care for long necklaces as they have a tendency to see things like wine glasses and fling themselves out to knock over aforementioned wine.  The horror of it all.  :(  It's simply TOO traumatic to ponder.

And AGAIN with the Mary Kay!  Check out this windowpane.  (oiks, flashbacks!) I did NOT say that!  The devil made me do it.  :D

MK makes the best canes.  Really.  Not being a cane maker, ALL who make canes amaze me.  There are some top shelf cane makers in this world and Mary Kay is one of them.  Jackie's are super, Kathi's are terrific, Chris' are wonderful, the list goes on and on.  HOW do you guys DO that???  Anyway, let it be known that it's a good thing for all you marvelous cane makers.  If *I* had to make canes...yikes.  :D
