I'm sure you all saw the articles about Dr. Ron Lehocky in the Polymer Cafe magazine this month.
He was also featured on Polymer Clay Daily.  Dr. Lehocky makes the most beautiful hearts that he sells to support the continuing education for the therapists that support "The Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies".

I contacted Ron about getting some of his hearts and to find out where I could send some polymer clay canes for him to use on his hearts.
I went through all my canes and filled a box full for him.  I also had a big container full of pin backs so I threw a bunch of those in too.  I had canes from a Jana Roberts Benson class I took and one from a Sarah Shriver class I took.  I love making flower canes so I sent him one that I made that I really liked.
When I got my hearts from him, he made one with this cane.  Hard to believe they are the same one.

If you click on the picture you see them up close.  The heart on the top right was made with the cane in the above picture.  He explains how to make that in his article in Polymer Cafe.  The blue one is also from the box of canes I sent him.  I was going to give them as gifts but I think I'm keeping them all for me.  LOL  Aren't they beautiful.  You can go to this website to get more information about kids and the organization http://kidscenterky.org/ .


My baby kitten had to have surgery.  Last Friday they took 20 jagged stones out of his bladder and urethra.  He's not feeling good.  It breaks my heart to see him like this.  His bladder is very swollen and he's hurting.  Say a little prayer for him, he's my best buddy.

Hope you all have a very Happy New Year.

The mail brought an unexpected surprise this week.  The winter 2014 Polymer Arts Magazine had a picture of one of my pendants in it.

I really like this magazine, it interviews and covers articles and artists from around the world.
This month Julie Cleveland of Blue Morning Expressions wrote an article called "FRAME IT!".  She discusses bezels, frames and cookie cutters to use for frames for polymer clay.  She asked if she could use a picture of mine from a polymer clay pendant that I beaded around.

This is one of my favorite pendants and necklaces.  I haven't done any of this in a while, I guess it's time to start beading again.
This is the entire piece.  I love doing Herringbone for the necklace part, it goes fast and is easy to finish.

Thank you Julie, I really love your articles and the Polymer Arts Magazine.
