Office Equipment and the Studio
There is this product out there called Lazertran Silk. It is wonderful for transferring images onto polymer clay. When I was first introduced to it, it brought back memories of my brothers’ model cars with tons of decals decorating them. This particular product allows you to print any image onto the ‘silk’ using a laser…
Vacation for Inspiration.
Who doesn’t yearn to travel and explore new places?! Last year we took our second trip to Wyoming. (My husband and I dearly love the Southwest.) Sure Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and Jackson Hole were on our agenda, but we wanted to also explore new parts of Wyoming. I discovered that the second largest sand dune mass in…
A Change is A-Brewing
An invitation went out to artists where I live. We were asked to make pieces for a teapot show. Well, I have been collecting old teapots from thrift shops with the intention of ‘upcycling’, or as my husband calls it, ‘angiefying’ them. They have been collecting dust for years. And right now, they still are.…
Summer’s Just Flyin’ By!
Time flies when you’re having fun! This summer has been so full of extra-curricular events, I have almost forgotten where my studio is. (It is directly behind our house). So in anticipation of an autumn and winter chock full of shows, I’ve had to play catch-up the past couple of weeks. While working on some…

Photos on an Overcast Day

I have a studio light box set-up which is ideal for taking photos of my paper bowls, polymer clay platters, and just basically any 3-D work that I make. But for jewelry, outside light can’t be…
‘Down Time’ after a Show – NOT!
I was in a big outdoor art show a couple of weeks ago. My work has been changing, and I was uncertain how it all would be received, Boy, was I surprised!! Most of my new work with obvious style changes sold. And that means instead of some ‘down time’ after the show, I have…
Back in the Saddle Again
Several years ago I attempted this blogging thing and failed miserably. Looking back, I think that I just wasn’t ready. It’s just that simple. So now it’s time to again give it a try. Just like I’m trying horseback riding again after many years!
