Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

My First Bottle of Hope

 Today, I created my first Bottle of Hope and here she is in all her glory. Oops, she has her back turned, I think she is a little shy. Anyway, I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to do, but as usual when I am creating something new, it always seems to turn out differently than I anticipated, but all in all, I am pretty happy with the outcome. Oh, I see you now have a side view of her. Maybe if we are lucky, she will show her face.
Well, here she is with her cute little smile.
I have seen cute and very ingenious looking Bottles of Hope that my Guild members have created, I wish I had some pictures to show you.

Polymer Clay Central has a great article on the 2002 polymer clay Bottles of Hope and some wonderfully creative bottles that were entered into a contest. Here is the link: http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/boh02_winners.html You will love those bottles!

Also, I am giving you this link which tells all about the Bottles of Hope and the woman who began it. http://www.ntpcg.org/boh.aspx

Tomorrow is my Guild meeting and I am looking forward to it. Well, here she is with her little heart filled with hope. It must have spilled over because the bottle was so full. Anyway, back to the Guild Meeting. Our meeting runs from one o'clock to five giving us plenty of time to have our demonstration and then create something of our own. Like I commented in an earlier blog. I am very poor at making swirls and maybe with someone showing me I will be able create one. We will see...
