This new year, beginning January 1, I’ve decided to officially jump on Katie Oskin’s 2016 Polymer Clay Challenge to make one item a week. I’m sure some weeks I could even slip in two or more, but I’ll focus on one each week.
Yep, amid my outside job, everyday life and romance writing, I’ve chosen to add one more thing to my busy schedule and make an ornament each week. YAY! I will use secondary mediums to spice up these primarily-clay items. I like bling; glitter, gems, etc., and being creative, stretching my mind outside the box.
I think ornaments can say so much to and about someone, plus I love making them (as you can tell from my previous post featuring these stockings http://ow.ly/WsVKC ). And they’re cute. 🙂 When you hear the word ornament, you probably think of the major holiday, Christmas, right? But I feel ornaments are not just for that one wonderful, joyous, but isolated season (yes, I believe Christmas IS a season all it’s own. 🙂 ). Why not have special ornaments for anything, any occasion?
Valentines Day? Yes! Fourth of July? Yes! Christmas? Yes! Birthdays, personalized, dated and just fun? Yes, yes, yes, YES!
So, 2016 will be my year to make lots and lots of ornaments! 52 of them, in fact. If you’d like to join in, go to Kater’s Acres and see how you can sign up! Don’t forget to join Katie’s 2016 Facebook challenge group too.
Check back weekly to see what’s new. If you’d leave a comment to let me know what you think, I’d love to meet other artists and fans of PC!
Have a blessed and healthy New Year!
