I have been making ornaments since Halloween! I found a box of glass ornaments at a garage sale. Brought them home and have actually rummaged through my own stash of Christmas decorations to make more. They are all polymer clay. I hope you enjoy my journey. I can't wait to see what all the other artists have made. I'll be posting everyone's links as soon as the list is distributed. Stay tuned...

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.

My fingers healed and I have finished sanding the ornaments. Today has been a beautiful day perfect for spray sealing/glossing polymer clay. I noticed as I worked that I had an audience. Somewhat disinterested but watching never the less...cows.

I realized I was creating new bags, see earlier posts, just to avoid the big photo shoot I have, also, been ignoring. So, two new bags later I couldn't justify putting the shoot off any longer. I'll share the new bags in the future and stay focused on all the new Etsy listings I have to create because of the photo shoot.

Getting myself revved up for the Holidays. Found a box of ornaments at a neighbors yard sale and thought I would give them a try.

I am using all the leftovers from all the batik bags I have been posting about. So, this is the next, but not last kitchen table project.
