On the road again

I guess I’ve done a fair amount of polymer clay related travel this year. I hadn’t realized it until two Real Life friends said to me, when I told them that I was heading to Philadelphia this weekend, “you’re going away again?” They’re just jealous 😉 And what’s not to be jealous of? I’m here […]

Blogging under the influence

Under the influence of TV, that is. I put it on simply to break up the silence, but to my surprise, Saturday Night Live is actually funny tonight. I haven’t been able to relegate it to the background like I’d planned. Maybe it’s because of where I am in my own life at this particular […]

Checking in

The Simpsons, Some Rats & Color Week

Here’s a recent family portrait, courtesy of The Simpsons Movie. I wasted far too much time on that site this morning. Neil designed his own avatar, and I did mine & the kids, although the boys did pick out their own outfits (if you couldn’t guess…) Thanks a lot, Neil, for sending me that and […]

Polymer Clay Play Day

I love the first Sunday of the month. It’s the day the NJ Polymer Clay Guild has its workshops. In the three or four hours I’m there, I get to socialize with like-minded individuals, sharing some of my knowledge and absorbing some of theirs. I get to sell a couple of the latest books & […]
