this is addictive ...

this girl has been feeling a little under the weather lately. dunno why, but the body seems to be floppish and lethargic. perhaps it's due to all the night crafting ... plus, the suppers and chocolates aren't helping. i think it's time to get this body back to the gym, and slow down on the crafting and the googling ... and safe some electricity!

yea... i think my electricity bill just sky rocketed this month becoz i've been doing extra oven time, baking my polymer clay! this is really addictive and i don't think i can afford it.

but ... since i HAVE been crafting all night and stuffing myself with chocolates ... ^-^ ...

refrigerator magnets anyone?

and oh ... *sigh* ... how can i stop crafting when each time i see a craft shop or a DIY shop i have to buy supplies and tools??!!

and thus ... the addiction remains ...




and i've been learning about wire "gauge" the whole of today and trying to decipher the yardage in a spool of wire, why some "gauge" numbers are more expensive than others when the yardage is less, and which is the best "gauge" number to use ... i think the silver wire is a 22 or 24 (i didn't look when i bought it cos i didn't know there were different sizes then!) and the copper is an 18 ... and this was quite confusing in the beginning. it would be much easier if the numbers increase as the wires get thicker :)

but i must admit, making these pieces were really fun :) not the best looking pendants but fun all the same :)

my next experiment ... air dry clay. at least with this i can safe on electricity :)

have a great week everyone :)
happy pimping! :)

  3. Wow, your clay and wire things are just gorgeous! I love those colors! :)

    I've tried air dry clay a few times, but it was all years ago so I don't really remember how well it worked in comparison to the kinds you bake.

  8. You've created some great stuff here! But you really should take better care of yourself, so I suggest a little R&R is what you should do!!
