Rocky and Bullwinkle...well not exactly

Last week Christi Friesen was here at the Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild to teach classes! Wowser what a week we had!! I only had one class, Saturday, with her but it was a total blast! I have played with clay like products in the past, but never polymer clay.  Sometimes I am just a total chicken!  My friends will be shaking their heads at that comment, but it's true when it comes to trying out new crafts.  I guess my biggest fear is that I will become obsessed with yet another craft media!  It is a well founded fear!  I have a new love and have had a few sleepless nights with ideas swirling in my head!

I will explore and play with this new found love and eventually you will see what I come up with of my own.  In the meantime here is a picture of the pieces I made Saturday.

 The squirrel was finished and baked in class (sorry Kate McK - we were in a classroom with 3 toaster ovens going and no extra ventilation per se).  The moose gave me fits, so I only had the head done at the end of class.  I finished and baked him at home that night.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Christi Friesen.  She is a delightful person and a superb instructor.  You WILL walk away from any one of her classes with the ability to make the project taught!  If you ever have the opportunity to take one of her classes...DO IT!!

  1. I would not have taken Christi's classes were it not for my daughter's interest and the rave reviews she received last time she was in town. I'm so glad I did. I'm not a critter kinda gal, but she made so much fun and I learned so many techniques (not to mention hearts that are to die for). I can't wait for the time to play with it more.
