1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zero From Nightmare Before Xmas on: August 13, 2009 11:46:47 AM
I have a friend who is completely batty over Nightmare... Well, anything Burton for that matter. So for her birthday back in May (yes, I'm a procrastinator at times), I decided to make her Zero for her desk at work.

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy my bit of procrastination as much as Nicole did!

A Light in the Attic

There's a light on in the attic.
Through the house is dark and shuttered,
I can see a flickerin' flutter,
and i know what it's about.
There's a light on in the attic.
I can see it from outside,
And I know you're on the inside...lookin' out.

All Done!:

This was the very first poetry book I ever received as a child. In fact, it was a birthday present from my older sister. I fell in love with Shel Silverstein at that point.

Ever since then, I've always wanted to make something Silverstein-inspired... Since I could never think of something to have tattooed on my body, polymer clay was my next best bet.

Other than the eggshell inside, hemp cord and acrylics.. It's entirely made out of polymer clay.
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Penguins & Frog figures on: September 03, 2008 12:35:44 AM
Two of my best friend's co-workers finally stopped drooling over her penguin figure I made her for her birthday, so they finally put in teir requests. They didn't give me too many details just "I want penguins" & "I want frogs".So, I went off in my own little direction and the gals loved them.


My favorite, the penguins.

He just cracks me up every time I see his little blank stare.

Hope you guys like them!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skeleton Hand Necklace on: September 02, 2008 03:12:35 PM
I love this time of year.. When all stores carry neat little Halloween decorations. I came across these little bad boys the other day and nearly bought the store out. I think I have a problem... but the possibilities are endless! So far, I've only turned one pack into necklaces. The hands are awesome cause they 'click' together making them the coolest clasps ever. I'm truly in love... And once my toddler goes to bed, another pack of these little beauties have a date with my Dremel.

Let me know what you guys think!
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Tons of Charms & Pendants = Lots o' pictures on: August 05, 2008 04:07:45 PM

mmm.. meat


You would never guess that this octopus was once a mix of glow in the dark and translucent sculpey. My toaster oven at work is the mouth of hell and burns everything within 2.5 minutes. I rather enjoy what happened to it.. it gave it a really neat texture and well.. looks awesome in black, especially with the silver.



This was pure genius on my behalf... I finally found a use for silica beads you find in new shoe boxes and other crazy random things. And I also found out that when coating them in sculpey glaze sometimes makes some of them explode. It kept me on my toes and totally turned out awesome.


This is my corporate-safe, cutesie skull. Most of the cubicle zombies think it's a cloud... No imagination, I swear. lol


Bubbly zombie hands are so cute Cheesy


First time experimenting with spider web cane.


Painting with poly clay is interesting. And I love this pendant, I want to make one in red now.


Inside the jar there's various shades of blue & pearl beads, along with a treasure map and other little sparkly do-dads. It's one of the cutest spur of the moment creations ever.


A cuppy cake for my daughter.. once she's old enough to finally wear it.


This thing is freakin' huge! I wear one constantly.


This one I'm thinking about putting on a hemp necklace, it's nice and chunky.


Yet another rather large pendant.


I <3 Jeffry Combs & mad scientists.


No comment is needed for this one... The cuteness says it all.


I truly do have a skull obsession


Phew! My pinky is tired of copying & pasting... Hope you like them.

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Sushi & Chinese Takeout Explosion (img heavy) on: August 05, 2008 01:28:04 PM
This is a collection of a nice-size chunk of all (my favorite) sushi/takeout related sculpey (and paper) creations from the past 2-3 years. I'm queen of procrastination and take forever to upload pictures.  Cheesy

Group photo.

My personal favorites are the bracelet (Which was my very first sushi/takeout experiment and my 3rd project ever using sculpey), the 2 small plates o' sushi charms and the little salmon egg thingys. I don't like eating the stuff, but it's so much fun to make. Whatcha think?
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Stamps out of erasers on: May 10, 2008 12:37:41 PM
I've seen lots and lots of people carve their own stamps out of erasers, which is freakin' awesome. I've always wanted to do it, but never remember to buy erasers to do it with. But I was wondering, since I have mounds and mounds of Sculpey eraser clay, if I could use that. Has anyone ever tried it? The boredom of work is tempting me to try that right now... hopefully the toaster oven here won't burn my stuff again.

My aunt works at Alvista Health Care, and they're having their annual Fall Festival. It will be on October 13, 2007 from 10am to 5pm.

It's $10 per booth, where you can sell whatever you like (crafts, food, etc). All the booth fees goes to the activity department, so my aunt can continue doing neat things with the elderly there.

If you're interested, you can contact Rosalyn Sheets at (706)672-4241 between 8:30am to 5pm Tuesday through Friday. Tell her Elizabeth sent ya Cheesy
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Chinese Take Out Gift on: February 21, 2005 12:26:16 AM
Thanks to the discount V-Day goodies at a local drug store (CVS to be exact), I found some nifty take out boxes that inspired the crap out of me. And hopefully will make a nice gift for a friend.

First off, the box that started it all. In it's original form.

After a nice coat of green paint, kanji and acrylic sealer.
love and..


Then, to one of the hardest parts of the gift, the sculpey fortune cookie.

So far that's all I have done. I'm working on origami orchids as well as felt sushi and a few other things to go inside. I just hope he enjoys it.
