New Direction for the Calendar Projects

I am so excited about the new Poly Clay Play Club perpetual calendar. You may recognize this photo (see previous post) but I just had to share the final project results for the August Club Calendar Project. Last year, each month the calendar project included a printable calendar along with magnets to decorate for the month. It was great fun and one of my favorite projects to design and write every month but I have to say I am even more excited about this year's calendar projects!

You may notice the project is themed for September. Each month I create the project for the following month so that members have time to complete it before the next month starts.

I can't wait until next month! The calendar project is going to be great fun, as are all the projects, I think!

Happy Poly Clay Playing!

Poly Clay Play Ribbon Caddy

Poly Clay Play Ribbon Caddy with Polymer Clay Embellishments

I posted a new item on ebay last night. It is a really fun project and I posted another listing with the instructions for making it. My husband was going to throw the "cake box" away and it inspired me to make this great way to store ribbon and still be able to see what I have!
Check it out at on ebay. Let me know what you think!

Hello and welcome to my blog...I am not usually very chatty so this may remain short and sweet. Who knows, maybe I will get better.

I want to introduce you to my Poly Clay Play Clubs! You can read more about why I started the clubs by viewing "About Me". I truly enjoy creating and writing club projects each month. My inspiration comes from all kinds of different places...many from the wonderful Polymer Clay artists who share their work on the Internet. Thank you to all that have come before!

The Poly Clay Play Club - geared toward adults - launched August 1, 2006. Wow this last year has gone by fast! I am really excited about the new year with the club. When I started it, I offered 8 has grown to at least 12 projects each month. Hmmmm...sometimes that number is overwhelming but I want to offer a club that members look forward to each month and try to offer a variety of projects.

This month's projects were great fun! My favorite is the Perpetual Calendar featuring Callie...the calendar girl. Each month the Calendar Project will use the basics...Callie and the number and day blocks...and decorations relevant to the month. The picture at the top shows Callie holding the "day" block. I can't show you the rest...I don't want to spoil it for the club members who haven't received the whole project yet.
Hmmmm...I managed to be rather chatty after all. LOL I guess because I get excited talking about the club!
You can read all about the club at the links listed to the right. Be sure to check out the Kids Club too!
