Well after months of wanting to I finally got started on sculpting with polymer clay. I don’t think I can stop now. I like this craft a little too much for that. They are starting to recognize me at the craft store. lol
I think I may have a new obsession. Everyday I want to play with my clay. I have managed to not do it every day though. I would be out of clay if I did.

I have been having some time to play with crafts and it is a great way to spend time and relax. I have also been spending a lot of time playing with my nephew. He is so cute. Here are some of the things I have loved this week.

I slept in a little this morning and then played with my nephew. It was mostly a game of slowly chasing him around. He would stop to see if I was still following. I also distracted him by dancing with him later on. He can be a lot of fun, but like all small children he can also be stressful. But life is full of things like that. You just need to choose the ones you want.

So Wednesday I picked up some clay. I had some money to do it and I had gotten tired of putting it off. I really want to try my hand at making little things with clay. Especially 1:12 scale miniatures. I saw a supper cute tutorial on making jellyfish in a tank. I don't have the stuff to make the tank, but I think the jellies are so cute. And they are showing up in the lolita community so maybe I can give some to my fellow lolitas.
I'd also like to try making some doughnuts and cupcakes. Maybe even some bread loaves. There are so many great tutorials out there. I have a tip for anyone looking for tools. Many of the tutorials have suggested getting a roller and they let you know you can get them from the craft store. However you should expect to pay around six or more dollars. My suggestion is to go to your local hardware store and get some PVC pipe. I asked them to cut me the smallest segment they would sell and that was about a foot. I paid under a dollar for it.
Well I am off to go play with clay. Have a creative day.
