1 Frivolous Friday 9/19/14 (Heart Road Rash, Pumpkin/Bird/Flower Bracelet and The Next Step)


 It is ALMOST the weekend!! Yep, it is!! We are going to be so busy this weekend!! Aye is off to a camp, Monster and I are going with a friend to a local art market and Hubby is staying home and resting up for the next week of work!! :)  But, I think it will be a great weekend!! 

A couple of days ago Monster fell off his bike - not once but twice - in one day!! That was bad, but then last night as he walked by I looked at his 'road rash' and look what I saw...


I know that the photo may not show what I saw very clearly, but in person it looks like it is in a perfect HEART!! OK, so does this mean my loving boy even gets hurt with his heart....:). He is recovering quickly and doesn't want to show me his 'heart', he says it is HIS only!!! I know he doesn't understand the 'hidden' meaning in all this, but I do.  I hope that he always keeps his heart close!!


Last night I finished this great bracelet!! I was able to so a mini photo shoot, edit the photos and get it all listed!! So, what do you think of the finish bracelet??

And what always happens when I finish one creation??  I have to start another!! YEP!! So I picked this amazing - hand painted - wood creation from Ms. Elfie - Painting from the Heart.  Not only is the Dragonfly beautiful, it is so very light!! If I didn't already have a PURPLE Dragonfly I would keep this one too, but I think I'll let y'all have it!! You can come on over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page; I post 'working photos' throughout the day!


 

I know that time is running out and that I will likely not get funded, but I just can't loose hope!! So if you can Pledge even $1 it would be wonderful!!

So, you have now met Ms. Kimmie the owner and designer of Kimmie's Clay Kreations.  IF you hadn't noticed yet she works with a lot of Glow in the Dark clay!  And let me tell you, it makes an impact!! Her creations are amazing in the light of the day, but they take on a whole new life when you turn out the lights!! 

I told you I would show you my favorites....well, here they are...notice, they both have PURPLE in them!!

0 What's New Wednesday 9/17/14 (Kimmie's Clay Kreations, 2014 Gift Guide and New Creations)


Yesterday I had big plans of what I was going to get done - I finished MOST of it!! But then the beads took over! There was just to many pretty beads out on my desk to not create!! So, I worked on my tutorial but didn't get it finished, wasn't able to do a mini photo shoot, but I did create a couple of new stranded items....maybe I'll be able to get them listed today or in the morning!! That means that today I'll be doing more of what I was doing yesterday!! 

Do you have days like that?? 

 

If you have been watching, I have been busy!! I have taken this bracelet from a pile of beads to this design!! You can come on over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page; I post 'working photos' throughout the day!


 

Many of you have pledged, and for that I am so very grateful!! But, I still need to get the campaign fully funded, or I will not get any of the funding!! So, please Pledge if you can - every $1 helps - and pass it along to your friends, family and anyone who will listed!! THANK YOU!!

Today I get to tell you more about her and her creations!! 

Combining her love for Clay and Colors she designed these little creatures called FuzzyKims.  She calls them 'cute little whimsical Monsters' and I can't think of a better way to describe them!!  Her favorite - and it is easy to see why - is this little Otter!

www.kimmiesclaykreations.com

While she does look at 'real animals' to start the designs she then sketches them out before starting to sculpt.  The rest is art making history!! It is very remarkable how she combines all these separate pieces into a finished creation.....just look at how these 'parts' become the witch below!

Then you can turn these FuzzyKims into necklaces, shelf sitters, gift toppers or even cake toppers (yep, my monster's birthday is coming up....ummm)!  Come back tomorrow and I'll show you MY favorites!! For now, check out all her sites and remember to tell her how you found out about her!!
