Happy birthday to Susan Rose and her PolymerClayNotes.com. Susan has generously shared her finds with me over the past year and now she's launching her own site concentrating on polymer clay techniques and tools. There are other such sites but few webmasters have her sleuthing ability and her panache.
I found the fondant rolling pin above through a link on Susan's site and was lusting after the lovely dotted fabric it makes. My husband suggested that I make my own roller out of polymer clay. Of course! There were a few other things, however….
Happy first birthday to the Polymer Clay Guild at the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society (LACS). The young guild is collaborating with the New England Bead Society (Beadesigner International) to celebrate the guild's first birthday and the bead society's twentieth. The birthday show runs October 7-21 at the Parson's Gallery in Lexington, Massachusetts. The purse shown here is by member Karen Swiech.
And speaking of guilds, you should note that the national guild has posted its 2007 Progress and Possibilities juried exhibition application forms. Entries are due by April 1.
