Can you believe it is almost time for Valentine's Day? Where is the time going? Someone please slow down this carousel ride, I can't keep up. :)
Hope all is well and happy in your corner of the world. Are you looking forward to this year? Have you already made your goals and plans? Do you have something special that you are looking forward too? Drop me a comment, as I would love to hear what you are doing.
Making plans --- I have been trying to do just that. Plan out my year, set some goals (both personal and creative-wise), and find the time to keep learning and trying new things I've always want to. However, with all my good intentions, I am off to a slow start. January flew by for me and then I caught a wonderful flu bug which lasted about three weeks! UGH!! Guess, I should be thankful that I got through Christmas without a hint of a cold. I'm not really sure why I always get my flu shot, when that flu bug seems to find a way to bite me. This year, that little bug is a nasty one. Hopefully, you did not meet up with him.
Things at Charmed Confections are looking up though! I am excited about a few things I have in the creative process. Last year was such a big year for my art, I wonder how I can even top it ... if it is even possible for this year. Happy to say that new characters are emerging on paper which I will transfer to clay. It is kind of exciting to think of who will emerge this year.
In my quest for continued artistic knowledge, I have learned some new polymer clay techniques. Definitely not a pro at them, but I am working on perfecting them to the best of my ability. I have been learning how to create canes in polymer and how to reduce them to the tiniest of sizes. I find it pretty fascinating. I am also developing new techniques with paper clay. As soon as I have something I am proud of, I'll share.
In the meantime, I wanted to let you all know about a sweet GIVEAWAY! I am honored to be in a group of talented artists called "Folk Art and Primitives". This group is on Etsy and on Facebook.
