Hot polymer, cool mom

How cool a mom is Jill Palumbo? Her sons each got electronic tablets for Christmas for which she had made polymer-embellished protective covers. (More pix here.)

The themed cases sported logos and icons from the boys’ favorite musical group and online game. (I had to look up Minecraft and Hot Water Music.)

Her design includes game pieces that turn the case into a stand for reading books or watching movies more comfortably.

Jill’s polymer ingenuity and thoughtful giftgiving need to be celebrated. Kudos!

    Thank you so much, Cynthia. I am thrilled!!! It is always a good day if I can find time to come see your daily articles, and I am always inspired by the work of those you feature. Thank you so much for all you do to bring together so much information about polymer clay art. I have never expected to find my own work here! What a wonderful surprise for me!

      Well, Miss Jill, you outdid yourself this time (which is saying something!) What lucky boys, in both the great gifts and the even greater Mom!

        WOW–Jill has outdone herself. Wonder if she’ll sell patterns for the covers? I know lots of people who would love customized covers like these.

          Whoo hoo Jill! Congrats on making PCD and way cool idea. A perfect mix of imagination and practicality.

            …And having met Jill at the IPCA retreat this last July, I can personally vouch for the fact that she is the sweetest, kindest most adorable person ever-you just want to pick her up and put her in your pocket, like a beach-combing treasure; or better yet, make her YOUR mom.
            Way to go Jill!
