Checking in / Paperclay Anyone?/ Someone Sweet

Hi All!

Wow! ... Some time has past since I  last blogged.  Sorry about that.  No ... I'm still alive and the house hasn't fallen on me yet.  Hee! Hee!



Wanted to share some news!  A few posts back, I had mentioned that I was trying to get on the Creative Paperclay® Design Team.  (This is one of the types of clay I use in my art.)  They have their own blog and a team of really talented artists that make up tips and tutorials for anyone and everyone, every month on their blog site.   In addition, you can find their tips and tutorials on the Michaels, Joann's and Hobby Lobby Facebook pages too!

Well, I am so happy to announce that YES ... I made the team!!  (Hard for me to even believe.)  When I sit back and think about what to do or what direction I should go in on my artistic journey, I never thought that something like this could actually fall in my lap.  I'm thrilled!!  Just goes to show you all ... You've got to GIVE IT A TRY!!  The worst that can happen is they say no and you are right back where you are today.  Nothing gained, (but most importantly) nothing lost.  So be brave, my friends and reach out through your art ... and go for it!

I hope you will pop on over to the blog -- www.creativepaperclay.blogspot.com and sign up to follow it.  Even if you don't work in paperclay, some of the tips will work on polymer clay too.  (I've worked in both.)  If you have never tried clay and always wanted too -- Now is the time!!  You might even find you have a hidden talent for it!  :)

I will be posting tips and tutorials every month for 6 months (along with the rest of the team).  I will start out easy and progress over the months.  Please join me and lets create something together.  It will be fun!  You can do this!!  Plus, I could use a few friends along the way.  :)  I sure hope to see you there!

Today, I received a wonderful message from Brenda of Pumpkin Hollow Primitives.  Brenda won my sweet Spider Bite in the Witches of Giggleswick Blog Hop last month.  She was so incredibly kind to post something about her winnings on her blog.  I was truly touched by her thoughtfulness.  Brenda is quite the Artist herself creating incredible graphite drawings.  WOW!! I was truly impressed.  How can anyone draw something and actually make it look real is beyond me.  She is a really talented painter too!  You need to see her Prim Artwork! Below is a link to her blog site.   Go check it out and give her a shout out.  (Thank you so much, Brenda!  I am a new followers of yours!  Hugs)

Well, that's all for me right now.  I will keep you posted on upcoming artwork, tutorials and then some.  Posting some new items in my Etsy Shoppe soon! 

Hope you are all ready for Halloween.  Jake (my sweet doggie) and I are almost ready with our costumes!  Stay tuned for pictures and remember this month it's ok to be a little wicked.   :)

Until next time ...

I am so thrilled for you LeeAnn! You are so talented and will be a great asset to the Creative Paperclay Design Team! YAY!! I have to admit, I've tried paperclay and it just didn't 'do it' for me. I love my polymer. HOWEVER, I have signed up for the Creative Paperclay site so I can follow your progress! Congratulations!
