Book News

I finally was able to get my hands on a Book I've wanted to buy but couldn't. My mom gave it to me for my birthday. She bought it in england where she lives, as Switzerland is just so so tiny and it's so hard to get my hands on books like these (If you don't have a credit cards!)

It's the Carol Blackburn book "Making Polymer Clay Beads".

I find it very inspirational to try out new things, especially things that I thought were too hard! But in the book everything is described so easily that I just "did it".

Yey, for books!

I'm still creating

I haven't blogged in a while! I've been so busy with work, now that I am working more and also with keeping up with my business in my parts of the world. The business is going good but I have to stay on the ball and keep it going. So when I can, I create new things and make new beads. I have set my self new goals to create a certain amount of beads each week and put them up for sale on Sunday nights. Now I am not so sure if this is such a good idea yet but I'm willing to try and see how it goes. My first batch that I put up last night has already sold out though and now I'm not sure if I should create more each week, hehehehe! I love it!

Right now I'm really into butterflies. They are such beautiful creatures! I have never really noticed all the wonderful colours they carry until I started studying some photo's for canes. Wow!

The first Butterfly cane is a Monarch. The colours came out pretty nice but I'm not so happy with the whole of it. On Saturday I tried to copy a blue butterfly I have on a photo but it didn't look anything like it in the end! Still happy with it though!

Ah, I love creating...
