I started experimenting with plastic switch plates and polymer clay veneers last month. One of the gallery owners, in Gatlinburg, liked the idea of switch plates when I mentioned to her what I was working on in my studio. I have been taking advantage of free tutorials I find on the internet about polymer clay techniques. I have been learning to make new surface treatments and patterns for the flat surfaces on the switch plates.

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.
