Melanie West promised new work and true to her word, she’s featuring a new line of brooches that expands her sea creature-inspired repertoire. She’s bravely posted her plans for the year.

New beginnings are good for us. Lots of polymer clay artists are rolling out fresh work, reorganizing, posting and updating. There’s a definite out-with-the-old, in-with-the-new vibe in the air.

My young tech-saavy neice is coming over today to discuss my social networking strategy. Losing weight used to be my social networking strategy but I don’t think that’s what she has in mind.

            Cynthia, you astound me! No sooner did I (finally) post on my blog than you pounced right on it. Zounds, your quick! And quite wonderful too. 😉 Thanks for the Tinapple bump, my dear. Very much appreciated. 🙂

            Jeannie, Claire, Sandra, and Sharon… many thanks for the very kind words. My work is so much fun to do, it isn’t work at all. But to know others enjoy it too… well, that truly is icing on the cake!

            Oh, and Sharon… My philosophy is that one’s work is beautiful if one enjoys creating it. Let go of what it looks like, and focus on the joy in making it.

              I so love Melanie’s work–always have. What a fearless eye that girl has. (and I stubbornly insist that we are all girls, whatever our tech deficits or weight-loss issues…):
