Rubber Madness, now :)

Here's what we did yesterday!

our efforts with Krafty Lady moulds
My daughters' snake erasers

Eraser Clay Erasers (by Sculpey)!!! (it's just like polymer clay except when you bake it, you make erasers!) - available where you buy polymer clay :)

RubberStampMadness listed one of my Yahoo!Photo albums!!!
You can see the listing here, and the album here under my oz_france Yahoo profile.
What an exciting thing!!!
Anyway, if you look to the left you can see more RAKs and also some stuff I made!

Today, I made soap! Well, I rebatched some "noodles" my friend Tania gave me, and tried to convert a small portion into shaving soap! We'll see how it goes.

I better stop rambling, sprained my wrist yesterday falling flat on my backside... skating! First time in a few weeks, hubby says I was getting too confident! I think there was some weird force pulling my skates from under me as I almost fell two other times, and it was really weird... Doesn't help that I woke up with blocked sinuses and ears!!!

Well, off to help the girls with their craft!

Have a great day!!!
Oh, I should also mention that there is an article about Sulea in that same RSM, now that's a feat! (Sulea's got an etsy space too)

Been Claying

Ok, so I have been playing a bit more with Polymer Clay...
Little Swirly Heart I guess the heart will be on the Krafty Lady DT site (with a couple other hearts I made), but the swirly beads won't, so I thought I'd put them here.

I was asked for a pink and purple heart on a diamond shape by Véronique... so I played, and made her a necklace (you'll see it later when it's finished) and with the rest of the clay I made another swirled heart.

You can see if you look closely that I had a bit of brown clay stuck in the mix, the scanner has that uncanny ability to make all the little imperfections just POP right OUT... but with the naked eye it's not as bad... I promise!!

I love this next one... like a tsunami at night!

I am not that good at swirl beads, but sometimes something wonderful happens, this is one of them! I was just having a play with white clay (it scares me, I'm not a very tidy crafter, and my white clay rarely stays white!!)

This pink bead is another one I made for the fun of it, it looks wonderful now that it's been sanded and buffed. I was having some fun with leftover clay... I used a pink blend and some translucent, and some nutmeg for good measure (that's a trick I learned from Myléne, who learned it from a book). Another necklace in the making. I like making the beads and casts but I like making simple necklaces, so sometimes I have to wait for inspiration to turn something into something "more"... Hmmm, time, supplies... and more time! :) one day I'll get around to it!

She's up, as are others.

My first polymer transfer is now a necklace! She's up on the Krafty Lady Design Team Gallery under Miscellaneous, and under my name: France. There's new Gatefold Journals, really nice work from all the girls (love Myléne's eggs! I have to say using that mould for eggs... they're almost Fabergé-like!!!!). Jeni's canyon pictures just made me dream, that's one part of America I never saw, and it was so close for so many years!! I just love the way each of us on the DT come up with totally different things, mine's done (well, the covers at least) Industria Style... Fun... the insides are bits I've had here and never used, or had leftover from swaps. You'll see a few more pages pop up, as I have a few more ideas :)
I've also been playing with Polyclay some more... stay tuned!!!
I better get to sleep, holidays for two weeks, need all my energy!
Thanks for stopping by :)
