Do you Hulu?

I do! My kids told me about this great site called Hulu where you can watch all of the episodes of your favorite shows anytime. I know, how great is that. I never seem to be free to watch some of my favorite shows and forget the DVR my youngest son has it jammed with enough Simpsons episodes to take us into the next century. So now when I am cleaning the kitchen I just go to http://www.hulu.com and watch all the episodes I missed for the week. There are commercials, but not nearly like watching on the regular networks. Don't you just love the future!

Upcoming Classes for January and February

I am having a great time teaching my domino class at the Beadbug in Crabapple, Ga. We have now added a Domino Workshop for those who have taken the class and would like to come back for some more domino fun. The workshops are scheduled for February 4th and 5th. Bring your own dominoes and I will bring the rest of the materials to make as many as you'd like. Now it's time to make some for yourself!

We have also scheduled a Domino Art Pendant class for Saturday January 31st if you'd like to come out and learn how to make these beautiful pendants. You will create six pendants to take home.

I am on Poppytalk Handmade

I am participating in a month long curated artist market called "Poppytalk Handmade." It is a great site to see some of the best, most unique gathering of artists. Jan and Earl are the curators and they have a different theme each month that they search for artists that fit the bill. This month the theme is "Love Transforms" a wedding/valentines market. Since I have been making my steampunk hearts I included those as well as my bridal bouquet charms. I hope this will be a good market considering the slowing of the economy. Go check it out here.

Steampunk Heart Pendants

If you don't know who Christi Friesen is you really need to find out. She is a one of the most inspiring polymer clay artists around. She has written multiple books and always comes up with new and exciting things to make with polymer clay. Recently she posted some steampunk creations that really got me inspired. Here are my attempts at Steampunk polymer clay. I have tons of clay and recently came upon some awesome watch parts. I have used the watches in various ways in my art, but none of it was as fun as this. You can see more of Christi's creations here. If you are interested in my hearts they are going to be in my etsy store, some as just pendants and some made into steampunk necklaces.
