I posted it on Facebook and had some lovely feedback from many friends who also shared their results with the tutorial which was quite gratifying.( I can't seem to find those pictures)
Here are the links to part 1 and 2 of the tutorial.
However, life goes on and I spent a busy fall and holiday season which included my very first live polymer clay workshop which I taught at a local bead store, Beads of Colour, whose owner organizes a full term of fabulous jewellery classes.
http://www.beadsofcolour.com/workshops.php It was a thrill to be asked to participate and even though I'm totally self-taught, I soon realized that I have a lot of knowledge, skills and experience to share and help spread the love of polymer clay.Here's a picture of the some of the cuff bracelets made by my class.
That was a lovely way to start the year and I received lots of positive feedback again! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, Toni Ransfield, an artist whom I follow on Facebook http://www.exclusivedesignz.com/http://www.exclusivedesignz.com/, used my tutorial to make a cane and covered a pen with it. Her work is phenomenal and the resulting pen is stunning.
All of this activity made me realize that I have very negligent of my blog so I decided this was a good time to refresh my blog with some news and a vow to start posting again more regularly. I am participating in Katie Oskin's #2017PCChallenge
on Facebook again this year so will be posting about it regularly.
I hope to join in the latest Bead Soup Blog Party being rejuvenated by Lori Anderson after a hiatus due to her health problems. The good news is that she's feeling well enough to undertake this event again.
That seems appropriate since BSBP was the motivation that inspired me to start this blog in 2013.
