Life is the ART of Drawing without an Eraser
My mini-mosaics usually measure 4 inches square but at a
recent craft show I had a customer fall in love with a specific message.   She decided to check out the rest of the

Great find!
Every year at Christmas I made a fair number of personalized ornaments.  To get the names printed into the clay, I had to tape small wooden letter stamps together.  That was a royal pain!  Then at a recent workshop Laurie Mika introduced us to a set of stam...

Layered Mosaic Treasure Boxes
I recently had a workshop with Laurie Mike, the mosaics artist who originally inspired me to try polymer clay mosaics.  It was a fabulous experience and I came home with my head bursting with ideas.  I've been busy trying different techniques and seeing wha...

This has been an exciting couple of weeks for me.  First I got a letter from the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi telling me that I was accepted for membership.  This means two very important things to me.  It validates my work, which all my friends and fam...
