Busy Busy Busy…….

Hello everyone! No I haven’t forgotten about you guys! I have been super busy with baseball season getting underway, Easter (which is now passed), trying to make new things, and keeping up with all my orders, I does not feel like a have a ton of orders, but it is just enough to keep me slightly busy. On the other hand I am getting an urge to make new items all of the time! Since I started playing with polymer clay I get so excited about finding tutorials and new ideas of things to make with the clay so that I can put those new things onto the crochet hooks! I feel fortunate that the clay caning process has come second nature to me. I honestly feel that I am able to do anything as long as I take my time and don’t rush anything!

Here are some pictures of my canes that I have recently made and the hubster is excited that I have made them………….

Fun Filled Day.

Hello everyone!  It’s been a long day!  Went to a birthday party at a bowling alley for a 3-year-old.  It was definitely different.  I personally would never have my children’s birthday party there unless they were much older and actually knew what bowling was and enjoyed it!  Then when I came home my long-lost cousin who also loves to craft as much as I do came over and we played with our clay!  I enjoy making the handles on crochet hooks more ergonomically and fashionable!   I recently bought some itty bitty clay canes from Etsy and I absolutely LOVED working with them!  I made 2 crochet hook handles that looked like flowers.  The work that they put into one cane is amazing!  I didn’t take any pictures because the hubby was at a meeting and we were here with my 3 kids and her one!  It was a little over whelming with all the little ones trying to play in the clay also!  I am hoping to be able to take some pictures of them tomorrow, if the kids allow me to, and post them for sale! 🙂

I never thought that I would enjoy blogging.  But now that I have I really think that I like it.  I can come on here and voice my opinion and express some things to the internet world and it just seems to lift some things off my chest.  Maybe because I can share my love of clay, crochet, photography, and what ever else I decide to do with others who enjoy my work!  I just wished that my kiddies would allow me to do this before their bed time that way I don’t have to stay up as late to post!  Oh well, I guess that is the life of a small business owner with 3 small children.  The good thing is that I do stay at home with them and work out of my home.  No outside job.  I get to enjoy my babies while they are young and I also get to craft every minute of the day that they will allow!

 

Well it’s late and I need to get up early to tackle my never ending pile of laundry.  I loathe laundry!  I wish it would do it itself.  Someone has to do it.  No better person than me since I am home all day!

 

 

 

Good night everyone!  Have a good Monday!  Happy Blogging.

Clay covered crochet hooks!

I have recently fallen in love with clay!  I have even made some small charms for necklaces that I thought I would never do because of the tedious small detail work that goes into them.  But I fell in love with everything that I have tried lately that deals with clay!  Here is what I have been up…..
