fimo)Hello to all who are still here!
I have been busy catching up withhh birthday presents for my family. I am about to work on a present for my mother (birthday in December). I haad an idea too try something new. I purchased a beginner's set of papers and a book on quilling. My idea has been to use polymer clay (I use Fimo primarily). I had it in my head that since I had not seen anything about it in the years since I started playing with PC, I would be makiing somethiing new!
I have been cut down and have my feet planted firmly on Terra Firma. Of course, others have been quilling with polymer clay! I have told people you can use it with anything you make with paper. https://www.pinterest.com/fadisan/polymery-clay-quilling/ is where I started, after searching with Google. There are gorgeous pieces here.
Now, toooo refrain from comparing myself out of making the gift I have planned. Perhaps I will make the flipflops I have been threatening to make for for my son-in-law. He wears themm all year round - this is iin NE Ohio! I don't know if he will try wearing them - they will be large enough for him to wear. I was thinking of making grass with extruded clay for the soles.
My self=esteem is in the toilet. Perhaps that is the way to go to bring it back up.
