I've been going thru my claying supplies and can't believe how much I have! Also searched Pinterest for button ideas...it's so easy to get lost down bunny trails there, lol. But I'm bursting with ideas now. Coffee first then time to play :)

Thank you, Eva! It's so nice to be back seeing familiar "faces!" You are so right about a shawl pin. Now...what color? Do you think clay alone will make a strong enough pin or should I cover a stick? I haven't been this enthusiastic about claying in quite a while. I woke up early with ideas swirling in my head!

I use a heavy gouge brass wire or a shortened bamboo skewer covered in clay for my pins. Havent had any of them bend or break.

Thank you...I will try that then. My first attempt was a bust. I had a donut shaped ring that I laid over a toilet paper roll to give it a curve. I turned my back for a few minutes and it had flopped off and was flat. Tried to put it back and it snapped :( So back to the drawing board lol

It's great to hear you are inspired, Susan - doesn't it feel good? I'm popping with ideas ever since TAD started!

Yes, it does! I have about 6 projects in mind after browsing Pinterest. And that hasn't happened in years! The most obvious technique for me to pursue today is using old dry clay in the extruder...cause I have lots of old clay :) and lots of unused scrap. Good grief, I can't seem to throw out even the tiniest scrap. I found all the cane ends from my very first cane still covered with plastic that is all withered from plastisizer. I forced myself to throw away some really ugly beads that I know beyond a shadow of doubt neither I nor any other will want. No sense keeping crap. On to newer and better stuff!

Yeah, I've learned to throw stuff away - even raw clay at times. If I find dry old clay, it just goes into the trash now, and it's very uplifting. :) Also, stuff I made at first that is very sweet for all the effort I put in, but - it's ugly! Trash time.

I have been gone for a long time, dealing with my Mother passing in 2013 and am just now in the New Year of 2016 committing myself to being more active in my Polymer Clay pursuits. I would certainly hate to see any of this go by the wayside.  I Have made a ring and a bracelet so far this year so it is an improvement over 2014 when I literally made nothing.  I cannot imagine making something every day.  That is an enormous challenge, but I am sure some you are up to it.

I don't think we're being policed so if you want to join in... just do what you're inspired to do. I only committed to do one single thing :) No pressure what so ever

Welcome back Ladyartist - feel free to share anything at all, even things you've made at earlier times. The reason we do Thing-A-Day in the shortest month of the year is because we know it's hard to make something each and every day! But it's fun trying.
