OHHHH SNAPPPP look what I did!

Lovelies, Lovelies you will not believe this...


Still not sure where the OHHH Snappp saying originated but I think it works nicely with this post. I live in the downtown district of Saratoga Springs NY. For all those who don't know where or what kind of town it is I will sum it up by sayings miles from Albany and VERY VERY ARTSY. Very much like Burlington VT. Anywho! I just found out there was an art supply store a hop skip and a jump from my work (also downtown) and on my lunch break I decided to take a hop in to see if they had antique varnish for my little lovelies. While looking for the varnish I came accross...... ready for this........ POLYMER CLAY!

I know I know nothing great and special, but...... to me it was because I never worked with it. For years I threw clay (not great at it) but I did it. I never loved it becuase I didn't like the way it made my hand feel after, all dry and cracky or what I like to call OOOGIE.. But I have done some reading about polymer and I decided that since I paint, do mixed media, sew and decorate dolls, knit, crochet, paint glass, etc..., I thought maybe I should branch out a tad. I am pleased with the results and will continue to grow. These are my first two little girls and I will be reserved in saying they are for sale although I would love to keep both of them. They are so new in fact that I didn't even name them yet! Well take a look and let me know what you think?!?!?! I am excited for feed back on this one and of course any tricks of the trade are much appreciated and welcomed...



Ahh yes and onto the business part (eBay listings) I didn't forget to list another one.. with the new clay endevour I just didn't have enough time in the day. I will be listing a new Halloween painting tonight to go onto eBay. And here it is....... please happy bidding there are three lonely girls up there right now with no bids (tear tear)...



I will be scarce in the next few days on and off. Mine and Adam's best friend is leaving for Germany on Monday, and our other friend is visitng from Burlington VT for the weekend and the car show so we will be busy with that. No fear! There will be tons of pictures. But I will be on and off all during that time for comments and questions.


SMOOOOOOOOOOOCHESSSS...


feedback please...
