Hats off to NPCG webmaster and the board who have revamped the National Polymer Clay Guild web site. Webmaster Barbara Forbes-Lyons installed a more powerful engine behind this popular site to allow more member participation and quicker updates.

This is phase one of a multi-phase project says Barbara. Galleries, albums, community groups, subscriptions, and other features will be added down the road.

Barbara has wisely taken a vacation after getting the site launched. (She's also the person behind the pixels on PolymerClayWorkshops.com)

If your name is spelled wrong or you find some other error, send it to her and she'll get to you as soon as she can. Barbara's contributed hundreds of volunteer hours. All she should hear for the next while is cheering and clapping.

If you aren't a NPCG member, there's a handy online form. It renewed my membership so I know it works. Please join.

The polymer clay chili peppers are from Judy Dunn. Her recent successes are an uplifting read for a Thursday.

      A huge BRAVA!! to Barbara for an absolutely fantastic job!!! I know how many hours she put into that site (believe me, I know) and she deserves a years worth of vacation for it!! Especially because it was all volunteered time. Barbara rocks!! 😀

        Thank you so much Cynthia! And thanks to Barbara as well. Such a colorful media deserves a site full of color and life. 🙂

          Thanks, Cynthia, for showcasing Barbara, Judy, and the new NPCG website. They deserve the recognition, and you deserve a huge ‘thank you’ for supporting and promoting polymer clay. Today’s PCD is an especially inspiring start to my day.

            I feel so guilty for letting my membership lapse when Barbara and Judy and everyone is doing such great work. I’ll log on tonight from home and fix that! I WILL!

            GREAT job!
