Polymer Clay is not only an incredible craft and better for you than going to a psychiatrist but I found that getting into clay has opened up a whole world of new friends to me.  I joined the Arizona Polymer Clay Guild 9 years ago and met some incredibly talented people there.  They were very supportive and loved to share and to me that was an important part of my learning curve.  I have obsessed with polymer clay since I bought my first bar.  The amazing thing to me is the amount of polymer clay places there are on the internet.  I could spend the whole day on Youtube and Pinterest looking at polymer clay things.  The other thing I did 9 years ago was buy tutorials on the internet on Etsy and Artfire from many polymer clay artists.   But, I have a couple of favorite polymer clay artists that have rocked my world.  As soon as they put a tutorial up I usually buy it.  I figure I'm supporting the hard work that they put into these things and I always learn something.  Since I started doing that, I've made friends with people all over the world.  I think I have every polymer clay book ever written.  I belong to a couple facebook polymer groups that I really enjoy and this blog has helped me increase my clay friends and knowledge of something I really love. 

One of my favorite artists in the world of polymer clay is Lynda Moseley.  I believe I have all her tutorials and love everyone of them.  I love her Mica Shift tutorial https://www.etsy.com/listing/51151212/polymer-claydigital-pdf-tutorial-diva?ref=shop_home_active

I'm having picture problems or I would put it here.  Well, last week Lynda posted a new tutorial and it's amazing.
https://www.etsy.com/shop/DivaDesignsInc?ref=l2-shopheader-name  It's called Masterful Faux Made Easy.  I think I've read all 47 pages at least 3 times.  I'm infatuated with this and can't wait to try it.  If you are a beginner or a seasoned clayer you will love this.  If you have ever seen Lynda's jewelry on Etsy or on her blog, you know what beautiful work she does.  This tutorial gives you the opportunity to do the same thing.  She explains everything in wonderful detail and has pictures to go with it.  Trust me, it will be the best $15 you ever spent.

Lynda did not pay me to do this, I just wanted to support her and all the hard work she put into this and the fact that she shares so much for such a small price. 

Lynda has always been helpful when ever I've needed something done or information.  We have never met but we have something in common.  Lynda had a cat named Buster.  She also had a cat named Bobo and I had a cat named Booboo.  I'm sure it's fate but cat people are special.  LOL

Now my blogger spell check doesn't want to work.  Go get Lynda's tutorial.  You will LOVE it.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Miss Bonnie! You made me cry, and it is WAY to cold to cry here in SC today! 14 bone chillin' degrees! Give Buster a hug for me, okay? You are the best, and you have made my day!
