I may not have been able to be at Art Is... this past week, but I was there in spirit!

So many of my wonderful and talented friends and online art connections were at Art Is... in Danbury, CT. this past week/end and I really wanted to be there too! But I was teaching classes, Saturday through Monday, so I would have missed the fun!

I was there in spirit though and I have been hearing a lot of great reports and I am seeing some really nice photos which tell stories of the many activities and cool art that was shared!

If you went- share your stories with me! I'd love to hear more about it!


Almost at 14,000 views!

This video of mine on YouTube is almost at 14,000 views! That is a LOT of plays!!!

It is hard for me to imagine that many viewers- and I start to wonder what people say out loud or think inside of their heads- the looks on their faces- while they view my tiny polymer creations for the first time. Do they smile?
Do their eyes squint to see the details?
Do their jaws drop? (hehe)

If you haven't yet visited my YouTube channel, head on over there and check out my videos!

Thank you!

~*Made by hand- miniature- tiny- cute- adorable- sweet- FUN STUFF!*~

Miniatures are small.
So often, people try hard to comprehend the scale of many of my pieces. It's hard to do unless you see them in person.

Perhaps this is a more suitable perspective for the scale of my work? Rather than placing them on a coin or next to a ruler.
All of these pieces have been hardened.
More often than not I take photos prior to curing the polymer clay so that I can capture it right after I create it. Some of these pieces got squished or bent a bit before hardening. I don't care about that though.

The joy for me, is in the creating of the pieces.
I will say however, WOW, what fun stuff!- despite the flaws!
None of it is silicone- it is all polymer clay.
