Wow....long time No Blog LOL!

Well it has been a loooooong time since my last blog! I fell into a slump and lost my mojo LOL. I am getting back into my clay and I played around with some pen and ink today so I have a few images to share. An ACEO in pen and ink, various pendants with agates, labradorite and jasper (one I call a Zombie Heart LOL), a mosaic tile I call 'The Juggler'. Oh, and my sweet new baby.

A lot has happened since I last blogged. I have a new puppy named Tali (Tah-lee). She is a boxer/aussie/shepherd mix and she is so adorable! She is 9 weeks old and I have her housebroken and she is doing well on a leash....yay! I live in an apartment and we walk several times a day. We have a lake with a trail that circles it and miles of quiet neighborhoods to walk in. Now I carry a pocket full of plastic grocery bags to pick up the fall out...so to speak. :) Which reminds me; there is a neighbor with a big dog and he brings him into our 'front yard' to do his business...then he LEAVES it. Giant piles of poo. We walk through this grassy area (sometimes at night) to go to the grocery store. I want to say something to him but I don't know if I should. I wish I knew where he lived and I'd let the apartment complex handle it. Anyone have any ideas?

BIG news!! I was contacted by Polyform Products Co. (the people that make Sculpey and Premo! polymer clay) and they asked me to work for them on a commission basis. From time to time they will commission a piece to use for advertising, packaging, promos, website, catalog, signs and tradeshows. I just finished my first job for them; a pendant using a new line of colors they have coming out. I can't show pics of it until the clay is 'released' to the general public but there are some very pretty colors! They are very happy with the pendant so I am relieved. :) The really awesome part is that they sent me tons of clay and tools to use. I only used a couple of packs of clay so I asked if I should hold onto the rest for the next possible project and she said I could use it for whatever I like, they'll send more clay with my next assignment. WOW! I won't have to buy clay for awhile haha!
I can't wait to find my work on a package or sign etc in a store. That would be awesome. :)
Well, here are pics of the pup and a few of my latest projects.
