I am trying to talk my husband in to a concrete gnome form - so I can have an army of them outside!  I guess I need to convince him a bit more!

Stinks about the ceramic blowout - I think I remember happening that to me on more than one occasion.  I loved ceramics class.  I really should look in to some adult education classes that are fun!  I never did get the hang of throwing on a wheel - the class I took I did the sculptures for a friend and he threw the bowls and vases.  It worked out really good and our teacher never was the wiser.  Mine always got snagged on my fingernails.  Now that I don't have talons anymore I might have a fighting chance at it!

You have inspired me to find my gnome designs for the embroidery machine.  I keep meaning to make myself a shirt with my army across the shirt.... I will have to fit it in somewhere between the yardwork, the designwork and the swapwork...

Can we have a "Create me a clone" swap?

When I was in high school I took a ceramics class with my mom.  It was really really fun.  I wish I could do that again.  I made tons of cool stuff.  Unfortunately, none of it is around anymore!

 I did a few heads back then - I still have a few of them.  I should get them out of the box and post up pics.
I am feeling all inspired all of a sudden - and I hate when that happens and I KNOW I shouldn't be doing something other than work projects. I got a moving box full of yarn - okay, like double at least the size of a xerox box full of yarn... and there is another box on the way - yup.  All for work projects due the first week in June... and nope, haven't started yet.  I am going to start today. 

Okay, technically I did start but the graph paper I first started off with was knitter's graph paper and the ratio was off so I had a squatty result - so I moved to regular graph paper and that was off too.  So third time's a charm?  I hope so.  I am starting with the hardest projec this time around - get that one done and move on..

but now I want to get my fingers back in the clay.  I loved clay soooo much!

I love Craftster - before joining craftster I had my own little crafting niche - and didn't venture past it. Now I want more more more.  If it weren't for Craftster I would not have taken out my sewing machine, fell in love with the embroidery machine, taken an interest in resin - and now got my husband interested in resin which is even better since now I can pass that craft along to him and still feel responsible for it!
Love Craftster.  Love it Love it Love it. 
I need to make some tshirts for them to advertise it.

I am a freelance designer.  I work with Caron yarns - so you will see my name here or there on things.  They come up with a concept (or pick some of mine) and then I design it. It goes to the big yarn shows and magazines and whatnot will select my patterns to go in the magazines - yeah, magazines are all run by the yarn companies!  My love is making blankets and stuffed things - I also have learned to love making purses.  I will make pretty much anything as long as it doesn't need to be sized - I just can't be bothered by that!
My work has been or will be shortly in most of the main crochet magazines - and a few knit ones as well (I machine knit - I never learned to like hand knitting - just too slow for me)  I was just in Crochet! and have a few coming up in Crochet Fantasy and Annie's Favorite.  I suck cause they emailed me a list of where my stuff was going to go in and flipping gmail deleted it.  I am now not using Gmail for my work and went back to Yahoo - at least there you don't delete an entire "conversation".  I really hate that "conversation" feature of gmail.  It is just ridiculous.


I have no clue on the clay and where to start - but pretty much if you build it,  you must fire it.  I think there are places you can take it to for firing.  I think I foresee some early summer claywork added to my list of things I really want to make.  I like yard art.  I am tacky.  I think I might need to make some ceramic yard art!

If you like yard art, have you ever thought of using concrete?  My mom makes outdoory things with styrofoam molds and concrete.  You can mix it in a bucket on your back porch, and then just let it set up in your garage or something.  You can make really neat stuff with it.  I got her a book about it where they make garden benches and shaped pavers and neat stuff like that.  My mom made a giant concrete bird bath that looks like a leaf.  She made a styrofoam mold shaped like a leaf, and then took a huge leaf and pressed it into the top, so when it dried it had the leaf viens and stuff imbedded on it. 

Just an idea!

Awesome action shots LauraPalmr - and I am glad to hear about the lack of slimey mushrooms!  I was a bit skeptical when I saw that but there must be something to it!


I looove concrete - and have a few stepping stone forms I want to get in to this year - I used to have a duck concrete mold but it didn't make it to this house.  I have been looking in to buying some concrete forms for some yard art.  It is almost cheaper to buy the mold and make it yourself instead of buying the finished product from the way it seems... so I am looking.
I grow elephant ears here and thoought of that leaf birdbath.  A craftshow I used to sell at had a vendor that sold the leaf bowls and birdbaths and whatnot.  I was always intrigued by them.  Maybe this fall I will have to make some - I have a giant elephant ear that puts off leaves about 2 1/2-3' long... just screaming to be put on concrete!
