I received an unexpected email from one of my galleries, "I'm out of ornaments!". So, I search through my own stash of Xmas decorations knowing I had plain glass ornaments to hang on my tree. Of course, the box of plain red ornaments was in the fartherest back stack...on the bottom. Always, right? I commenced making red and green themed canes and ran out of red and green Argh. But I concocted a green and decided to use 'tomato red'. Not perfect but, they were out of ornaments! I work all day and make five new ornaments.
Then I check my email that evening and reread the out of ornaments email. There was a little comment at the very end that said, "I have only one little ginger man left. Great, I should have read a little more carefully...they're out of gingerbread ornaments! So, I have no clay the color I used last year, and still out of red and green. I used the concocted green and discovered a little special effects red stashed away in my fancy clay box. Here is the last two days of polymer clay gingerbread people. Still need to add copper hangers but I'll be going to the gallery in a day or so. Whew!
