Donna Kato thought she lost her groove and I thought I lost Cathy Johnston. Not to worry, both have been found.

After a creative slump and lots of frequent flyer miles, Donna’s got her groove back with some stunning polymer clay pop art beads.

And Cathy Johnson lost her domain but her little polymer books and puppets live on at a new address. Cathy’s organizing registrations for both Clay Carnival and her Eastern Washington guild’s clay escape. I love finding things I was sure were lost, don’t you?

Thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterday’s video.

              Hi there;

              Many thanks, friends! Boy, that Peter Chang really got things moving again – I’d definitely recommend a look at his art jewelry. It’s really inspiring and so very, very cool.

              Cynthia! I saw the Youtube and it’s fantastic. Is there anything you can’t do? What a splendid, elegant way to make one of the most complex of canes. I’d like to meet Michelle Fanner someday.

              Bye, D
