Polymeri Online 10.2.10

Oh my, these days are too short! In few days i will be flying to USA to attend 2 major polymer clay events - one is Cabin Fever Clay Festival, in Laurel, Maryland, and the 2nd one is Synergy, the International Conference of Polymer Clay being held in Baltimore, Maryland. Almost 2 weeks of seeing, hearing and breathing polymer clay. Getting ready and organizing everything takes all my time - making swap gifts (80!) and a custom order of 240 beads and keychains...
But! 3 days in New York City will definetly will make up for all the hard work!

Just before i pack my suitcases, here is another Polymeri Online (not sure when the next one will be)

I am subscribed to Cynthia's Ornamentea mailing list, I was looking around her site and found this great new cabochon & bezel templates, you can print them on cardstock and use them with polymer clay too (click on the PDF icon to download the file).

Have you seen Janet Farris Mosaic Cane? It's amazing! and her blog

Look at this cute Mini Polymer Clay Teapot made over a round appliance light bulb by BeadazzleMe, this reminds me of a project i once made using light bulbs - it's a great recycling idea!
