happy friday and new project in the works!

happy Friday! It's supposed to be near 40 ° today-- I'm so excited to not freeze my butt off when I walk the 60 feet to my car. This winter is seeming like it's dragging on and on. I suspect its no worse than any previous winters i've been through, but man, it seems long. Very long. And it's not over yet.

I've got nothing new to show this week-- This week just flew by and I was completely unprepared! I wanted to list my blue coffee cup painting, but I didn't have a chance to finish painting the edges. I will definitely finish it this weekend (tonight in fact!) It looks awesome and I love it!

Soooo.... I've been listening to crafty podcasts lately. A lot. I had to remove most of my music from my nano to make room all the podcasts I've downloaded. (for fear of sounding like a complete nerd, I'm not going to mention what podcast I've been listening to most) Anyways, the host of this particular crafty podcast talks to different artists every week and she's had a number of polymer clay folks on. WOW! Polymer clay ain't what it used to be-- I used to only think it was for these "cane" sorts of things:

oh no, my friends. there are so many ways to use polymer clay! I was surfing etsy the other day (aaaahhh.... so that's where my time went...) and found so. many. cool. things.

    So this weekend I'm going to run to Michaels and pick up a little pack of fimo and play around a bit!!!! I would LOVE to take a class (so, if any of you know of any classes in the Chicagoland area, let me know!!!!)
    Have a great weekend!!
