|Polymer Clay Cupcake|
I couldn't sleep last night, so I was up making this jumbo glitter cupcake. It is completely made of polymer clay. Wouldn't a whole tray of these be cute? I need to make them smaller next time. I made this one for a very special friend for Valentine's Day. Her name is Vicky and she loves anything vintage. She just made a couple of birds that will look really cute with this. I'm hoping she doesn't check my blog today, so I can call her and be on the phone when she sees it. Everyone should have a friend like Vicky. She has been a great support for me on my artist's journey. She has cried in the valleys when I have been disappointed , shouted from the mountain top with me to celebrate the victories , and has kept me laughing when I forgot how to laugh on my own. She loves me and my art, and has done so much to encourage and promote me. She is one of the most gracious and generous people I have known, and her husband is the same. So Vicky I hope you like your big fat cupcake and this little surprise. I know God put you in my life at just this time, to help me make it over this last hill. Do you think we'll get to the top to find a mountain? I hope not! But if there is, I know you will be one of the people pushing me from behind. I just wanted to honor you and our friendship today. If you read this early, you better cry when you read it with me tomorrow. I'm joking, just call me. If any of you have a friend like this, you are blessed. Leave me a comment and tell me about them.

|World Wide Event For Bloggers|
|One World One Heart Door Prize|
I'm a mixed media artist that works in paint, paper, fabric, and almost anything else I can get my hands on. The medium I use most often and have for the longest time is polymer clay. I've challenged myself to see how many other mediums play well with polymer. One of my latest pieces was of polymer and wool roving. The door prize I'm giving away is a clay heart made up of individual tiles that is surrounded by tempered glass. The piece is 4x4 in size and is very shiny. If you love hot pink, black and white, and hearts, this might be for you. If you are an active blogger, leave a comment to enter a drawing for the door prize. The winner will be selected February 17th and I'll email the winner and post it as well. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Thanks for stopping by. P.S. I just found out that I'm a 2012 Cloth Paper Scissor calendar artist. I'm doing a happy dance! Congrats to" Just Me" for winning the 2011 OWOH door prize.
