Polymeri Online 16.8.13 | Back from Barcelona, Horror polymer, Natural geometries jewelry, Mike Waxowski tutorial, Wire knitting with polymer clay and my Skyscraper jewelry in Cynthia Tinnaple's book



Hola everyone! 
Yes, I'm back from a family trip to Spain; me, dh and 2 kids; It was hot, humid and wonderful :)
Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid, such an exciting cities! So much to see!
Really recommended for your next trips but! not in August! Weather was non-tourist-friendly even though there are millions of people on the streets!
Glad to be home :)

I am here for only a short week and then off to the beautiful Prague for teaching ~20 eager minds, looking forward to learning more about polymer clay.
If you want to join at the last minute, I think there is one or two last spots available - more details here - http://www.polymerove-hmoty.cz/Default.aspx?detail=a0ca7301-f2f9-4254-81a7-e1f47153240c
