more pix!!!

Ok, here's the amazing work I received in return.
I hate to choose but my fave I think of all the swaps I've done would be the naked santa with the inukshuk being runner up. I wish I had thought of something as wonderful as my swappers did! Oh well, I guess there's always next year.


Here are the ornaments I sent out.
They were my take on pierceware/creamware with some glitter in red, green or gold added in a few of the openings. Each one handmade using a cutter on custom blended clay and then each opening done one by one.
Next post will be my received ornaments since I still haven't figured out how to get the pix to post where I want them in the entry, lol.

ornament photos etc

I wanted to drop in and let people know I got my 10 swap ornaments. I have taken pix of my 10 that I sent out and the 10 I received and will be posting them here tomorrow.

I would do it tonight but am exhausted and have to get some sleep before my doctors appointment in the morning. My blood work is not good so hopefully he will have some suggestions for me tomorrow because between that and my back (whick will need surgery I was told last week) my creative spark is hardly a flicker.

Okay enough feeling sorry for myself since I am alive and kicking with a great son and adorable furry

Merry Happy Jolly days to all! I'll see you in a few hours for show and tell.

popping in

Just wanted to stop in to say hello even though my wrist really doesn't want to.
My ornaments went out on Friday. Only 10 though I hope they will be enjoyed!
I am still in limbo as I am healing. Knee is doing better while the wrist seem a wee bit more complicated that I originally thought. I had my MRI on Saturday and will find out about my back in a week or so. I had wanted to ask them hey will you take a peek at my wrist while I'm all ready in here but ... nah, lol.
I am in the beginnings or maybe even midst of a change I think. Not sure just what is going to come out of it but hang on folks, I think we're in for a bumpy ride. Too much time thinking instead of doing work does this to me ;-)
Keep well all!

Popped in to say hello. So, 'hi"!!
I am almost done the 10 for the Clayamies ornament swap (they are baked and signed just need hangers). I am however feeling like I want to do another 10 and swap 1 for 1 with everybody. This is an issue as I want to get the parcel in the mail tomorrow and I would have to do something different than I've got done now. I'm also a little worried if some of the other ornaments are quite large and all might not fit into my box for return. I guess we'll see what the night

creations and catastrophies!

I am almost done my ornaments for this years Clayamies swap. They were a "hey that seems like a great idea" thing that I'd never done and though they didn't turn out like I thought I think they're pretty cute. Can't share a pix yet as they're top secret until all parcels have been exchanged.
On the other side of things.... I have my latest (and hopefully last) addition to my proof of being a total klutz. Last week while walking my son to school I tripped and busted up my left wrist and right knee really quite horridly bad. Should have done a trip to the ER but nothing seemed too bad until a few days later and by then I thought "hey things are all ready healing and seeing that I made it through a badly busted ankle a few years ago without the ER, let's give it a go with this experience". So here I sit waiting for my MRI appointment (for a totally unrelated back thing) on Saturday and I'm almost betting if they get a glimpse of any of my above mentioned parts I might be getting a wee longer visit with them then I'd planned.
So folks, back to the ice packs. See you soon!

new stuff

new at are sets of scented faux gingerbread boys and girls. They are adorable if I do say so myself and were worth the agony of trying to get the right colour, the right texture (since the clay kept cracking and flaking) and then deciding on the decoration! I'll have a non clay related item going up in the same shop within a day or so of my OOAK bride doll.
Otherwise I have been spending today (my birthday and one of my dogs as well) just puttering and creating in my mind taking a few photos here and there. It's quite cool here, we've had rain mixed with snow and hail, and very windy as well. Prince Charles and Dutchess Camillia (sorry if I've flubbed the spelling) made a visit to one of my favorite places in the city today (Dundurn Castle) and to a docked warship as well. Exciting to have royalty visit on your birthday!
I'm leaving you now to go and grab another piece of my brownie and carmel topped birthday cheesecake.
Stay safe and play nice with each other.

Nothing new listed in the msnovembertuesday shops on either etsy or artfire however...... I have opened a shop for works more goddess / witch focused. You can find it at http://wednesdaywitch .
Hope everyone is well and if you are living near me, able to keep up with the changing weather!
I'll be back to check in with you shortly but for now it's off to do a bit more work.

Thursday, October 29, 2009 ...ok, yes

Really folks I haven't been physically busy, I've been spending so much time thinking and planning running over ideas in my head. I tend to get distracted this way. I like to think of it as meandering off the path to go see the really neat stuff...oh wait where was I going again.....LOL.
I also have been having this debate because I have a 'real life' blog and I began this one to talk more about my clay work but, when I'm working on other stuff (or lollygagging) will it corrupt this to post here about that as well? On that note I'm off to finally clean my glasses and see if the world looks any different ;-)

Long weekend

It was a long weekend for me this past one for more reasons than the obvious holiday (Thanksgiving here in Canada). In getting the table leaf pulled out and vacuuming to get ready I managed to cut my head open on the corner of the table. In prepping and being short and reaching up into I think the cupboard for my heavy glass platter...I pulled something in my shoulder/neck and between the two I have been in pain for the past few days. My head is doing well and I expect the pain in my neck/shoulder will be better within the next few days but between them I haven't gotten anything new done. Ug! Cross your fingers mobility returns soon as my artfire is getting google/search hits and I really need to get more in the shop.
Thanks for stopping in!

nothing much...

So I just wanted to wish those of you who are celebrating this weekend a very happy turkey day. I think we should be thankful all the time so thanksgiving really is just another day for me. I will be cooking this year so I am off to look at ideas to have a slightly remixed Somewhere in the midst of shopping and cooking I'll be on etsy or artfire (maybe both if time allows) and I'll be sure to share it with you here.
Keep safe and play nice with each other.

hiya again

I've been spending the past week or so attempting to sort out some computer issues. Not with mine but with the second one which I ended up swapping with my dad for an older notebook of his.
Computer issues aside, I've been on the creative side of things in concept and design of a few potentially new things. I say potential because I'm just not sure where I'm going to go with it all yet.
There should be some new listings on artfire soon (if I read the info right) and as usual you can find me on etsy and livejournal...just follow the links.
Guess that's all for now.

Now off to work on a few other things. Happy Tuesday all!

Morning all! thought I'd share with you a glimpse of some ornaments I'm working on. Still feeling out the decorations for them but at least they are this far along! There are also mini versions but those are still not telling me just what they want to be made

busy today

I've been busy today trying to get some new pix taken of my buttons that are listed right now at . I like the results though I am beginning to see double of things after all this computer time!

I'll be taking more button pix and getting them listed on my artfire shop sometime within the next week. Also coming to will be another style of cat toy similar to what is there but has a bit extra. You'll have to keep your eyes peeled.

Nothing of note added to or msnovtues_2 on though did get opened and had a few pix added with one more to come tonight in the clayamies section and 2 sneak peeks of button sets that will be available on artfire soon in my claying section.

Ok, thanks for visiting again, hope to see you soon.
