I offered to make something as a door prize. I had a pendant that I decided to make a necklace for and after I got the necklace made, I decided I didn't like the pendant so I hustled and made another pendant.
NEW POLYMER CLAY BOOK
I received a new book from Amazon yesterday. It's called "Making Jewlery from Polymer Clay" by Sophie Arzalier. I saw it on the International Polymer Clay Guild's letter and it looked interesting when I checked it out at Amazon. I'm really impressed. The photograhs and directions are really great. She covers basic techniques, effects using textures, canes, Mokume Gane, etc. I would definitely recommend this book to new clayers and advanced clayers. I collect books, especially polymer clay and beading books. Since I started teaching polymer clay, I spend at least 2 hours a day reading and researching information about polymer clay (actually I'm just obsessed). Sometimes it's more than 2 hours. I thought I had seen or read about almost all techniques and different ways of doing clay. This book has a few things I haven't seen before. I think I'm going to order a few more copies and give them as gifts.

PARTY, PARTY, PARTY
This Friday is our BFF party here. We are going to do clay and have a nice lunch and exchange handmade gifts. Booboo loves it when the girls come over. They pay a lot of attention to him and he gets petted a lot.
Who wouldn't love this adorable little yarn holder? LOL
