Is There Really A Third Person Doing This Blog?

Yes, there is. And as usual, I'm late to the party.

Hi, I'm Kathy - the third part of the mother-daughter creative trio. I work with polymer clay and jewelry. I have played with clay, painting, drawing, sewing and many other crafty things. I learned to create at the hands of my mother and her relatives - there is nothing that they could not create: from tin can tiaras to egg carton flowers, they did it all.

Why do I work with polymer clay? I am drawn to color and pattern. Polymer clay comes in all these really great bright colors, which then can be mixed to form just about any color. It is also an awesomely versatile medium that can mimic so many materials: glass, metal, semi-precious stones, metal, and many others. Patterns can be created in so many ways. I have not even scratched the surface of polymer clay techniques, so I can see myself claying around for years to come. Which is good, since I have the attention span of a gnat.

In my next post (which, hopefully, will not take as long as this one), I will let you know what is currently inspiring me.
