Some Projects ....

I have recently been accepted to the Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy (PCAGOE). I am inspired and in awe of all the incredibly talented artists there. I'm honored to be a member. I've been working on some projects this past week, one of which has to do with a program called Pendants with a Purpose through PCAGOE, "where artist donate pendants as a part of the Look Good Feel Better program affiliated with the American Cancer Society". For this round of donations the theme was 'hope'. I gained my inspiration from a part of a poem by Emily Dickinson:

HOPE is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all

These pendants are now in the hands of the lovely lady behind The Color of Dreams Etsy Store, who is organizing this ... I pray that all the pendants donated bring some comfort and evoke a renewed sense of hope within the hearts of those that need it most.

Also, I was working on a piece for PCAGOE's July Challenge ... every month there is a challenge and this month the theme was 'summer memories'. One of my fondest summer memories was sitting on the dock, bare feet dangling over the water, watching the sunset and eagerly awaiting the appearance of the magical fireflies. And this is my entry ...

For other quick news about my Etsy store ... I've been working on some 18 inch necklaces with polymer clay pendants. They will be added to the store throughout the next few days. And I will be starting on some hairsticks next week, so hopefully I will have some completed in a couple of weeks.

Have a great weekend everyone! :-)
ETA: Sorry if the pics in this post haven't been showing. I'm not sure what happened, but hopefully you can see them now.
