Last Christmas, I bought something that has been on my list for a long time – a Sculpey clay conditioning machine:
I have been using a pasta machine to condition my polymer clay but sadly, it began rusting so it is best to replace it with something that is made specifically for clay. Albeit pricier, this is way better than the pasta machine. But since I have been using it a lot but too lazy to attached it on the table, one of its flat washers at its base was detached. I can’t seem to find it, maybe I threw it away without knowing what it’s for. I am now looking for a company that sells flat washers so I can replace the missing part. It is small but very relevant.
Look at what I made recently:I must admit that making these Elmo-themed souvenirs was a challenge. I thought it was easy but it took me some time to finally get the proportions of Elmo’s face. But it was fun! I hope that the recipients and my client will love what I did. Next in line is miniature hibben knives for an avid collector. Hopefully, I can pull it off. I will let you know!
We have been looking for a craft that might interest my daughter. I thought that cross-stitching is the thing for her but unfortunately, I am wrong. She asked for some of the cords that I make into bracelets but she was too impatient to finish it. We went scouring the Net then and we found this tutorial on how to make a LOVE script necklace. It looks easy and I already have the needed tools. Let’s see if she is interested enough to try and finish this project.
Now that classes are about to end, I have already ordered gifts for my daughter’s teachers. I only need to come up with creative packaging and then I saw this:
This is going to be so cute with a ribbon and gift tag on top. This uses felt paper but any paper would certainly do. I can’t wait to try doing this with my daughter.

One of my latest projects is a door name plate.
I made this with glow-in-the-dark polymer clay and some beads. I had a different output in mind but this came out nicer than I have planned. See this and more when you visit my online store, The Clay Craft Studio.
