Polymer Clay + Transfer = Excitement

Well, while there's other things I've been meaning to post about, but keep running out of time, here's a quickie! I've been having fun with polymer clay lately. I made a bracelet for Krafty Lady, and a pendant which I'm going to scan soon, it'll be on the same page. And on the weekend I tried my very first Polymer Clay Transfer. I had no idea what I was doing (well, I did have a vague idea as there's lots of good tutorials on the web) ... but it WORKED!!! Ok, it's not finished, it needs something around it and a hoop to make it a necklace, but I am just so excited I have to post it here.

I also had another first (in many years) I went roller skating with my daughters this weekend. They take lessons, and I took one too to get "back on my feet" so to speak. I used to skate at Ceasar's Palace in Pointe-Claire, QC, Canada :) when I was ... in my teens, and it's been about 15-20 years since I wore ice skates!
I had a lot of fun and we'll be doing it again (yes, I did have one fall, didn't hurt myself except for the fact that I think I kicked my right shin with my left skate or something... can't remember, I was too busy worrying about the fact that I was falling and might really hurt myself to remember what was going on with my feet!!! But I have a nice deep bruise to the left of the tibia... oh well, could have been heaps worse!).

Have a great day, I have some Spring Cleaning to do!! (and some polyclay to bake!)

She knew...

How did she know? She's good at her job! She's damn good. I know what I like to hear and what I don't like, she knows what "they" want to hear, what the buying public likes. Barbara forced Lukas Rossi to get his "ass" on a plane to make it to the Vancouver Audition for Rock Star: Supernova, and HE WON! I'm so excited for Barbara (and for Lukas too but I don't know him). Wish I could be there with you, Barb (though things aren't too shabby over here!)... I'll definitely stay tuned. Barb says that the best of the videos to watch is Creep, I like this version as you can see Tommy Lee. er.. I mean, ... you can see Tommy Lee really rocking to Lukas's singing and performance. (though, seeing Tommy Lee is not too hard on the eyes! hehehe!). Well done for your guts, your insight, your actions, and just doing what feels right, Barbara!!!

My former life....

Wow, this is my forever friend Barbara... and her latest project, I guess you could call it that, for the Rockstar Supernova, a version of Idol... for a rock band. the clip is the "Lukas Rossi - ET Canada Exclusive". It'll take a while if you're on Dial Up... but for me it was worth every minute, having not seen Barbara for a few years now (not fair, she doesn't look like she aged at all!)... Good luck Barbara, and to Lukas too!
Just had to post about this because I miss you so much! Enjoy your trip to LA (sleep on the plane!). You always were good at your job!!! Brings back lots of lovely memories (and some a bit blurry! *giggle*)!!!
