It is Snowing (again) …

Just as the Washington DC area is digging out from two major snow storms within  a week (and the accompanying cabin fever) … it is snowing again! I am looking forward to the Cabin Fever Clay Fest  in Laurel this weekend and Synergy2 in Baltimore the next week!

I am still recovering from my surgery and getting stronger each day. I am grateful for all of the support I have received throughout the past couple of months and have enjoyed the calls, emails, cards and flowers!

Colorful New Years…

Wishing everyone a colorful, healthful, joyous New Years!  I will be away from my computer for a couple of weeks…while I have surgery on my leg…and hope to be back soon dancing!

Note: This month’s Artful Afternoon Class in Annandale is cancelled- look forward to seeing you at the next session.

Colorful Art Jewelry Magazine…

I just received the  newest issue  of Art Jewelry Magazine  (January 2010)  in the mail today and there are several items of interest to the polymer enthusiast…

A Conversation with Kathleen Dustin

…And a very nice mention of  our book Polymer Clay Color Inspirations. Hope you are having a colorful, peaceful holiday weekend.

Colorful Sneak Peek…

Here is a sneak peek = kalediescoped image – via KrazyDad’s online kaleidoscope tool of the collaborative piece that Leslie Blackford and myself have made for the upcoming Synergy2 exhibit (both online and in Baltimore this February). It was certainly a lot of fun to make.

The excitement about this exhibit is building- you can participate in an online contest to identify the artists who participated in Laurie Mikas collaborative “quilt” here. Continue reading ‘Colorful Sneak Peek…’

Colour Lovers…

CLI am delighted to see our new book- Polymer Clay Color Inspirations– included in today’s “Eclectic Color Roundup”   – on the Colour Lovers blog.

Colour Lovers is a very interesting and dynamic site = Color + Design Community for Creative Inspiration (last count 259,353 members) and includes forums, patterns,palettes, trends, a blog and a store.

One of the recent posts that I particularily enjoyed was on the Colors of Frida Kahlo.

Colorful Reading…

warrenfeldWhen visiting a  blog entitled “Rogue Elephant” – I wasn’t surprised to find that the author, Warren Feld, wouldn’t by shy about posting his point of view (along with a sense of humor). While there are dozens of articles in the archives, the one I found most interesting =


“Rethinking the Teaching of Color to Beaders and Jewelry Makers  OR How Jewelry Designers Should Approach Color “….

 Note: not a “quick” read rather a 45 page PDF– which makes for colorful reading. I would be interested to hear your reactions.


Thanks for visiting my blog where you'll find my latest news, class details, and new tips and tricks. You'll find more information about my work at my website. Come back often.
