The Smooshers are back!!!!

I am happy to report that, thanks to Michelle of Creative Critters, the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild is back up and running on!!!  We are a multi-talented group of polymer clay artists  There are links to all members shops on the blog--this is being updated with new members, so check it often!

Until I get my widget back up, here are some links for you for check out:

No more Smooshers

I found out today that the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild has been closed.

This was the first guild I joined on Artfire and was very happy to have found it.  I learned a lot from my fellow smooshers and was inspired by their beautiful work.  I'm going to miss doing my "Friday Finds" walks through the smoosher's shops.  I hope to be able to stay in touch with them through their blogs and facebook pages.

I have joined other guilds and am selling on other venues and will continue doing walks through shops.  It may not be every Friday, but I will try to do it as often as I can.

If you are a follower and would like to be featured, send me an email at

And now I will sadly remove the smoosher widget from my site.

Take care and remember as Albert Einstein stated: "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

Which Avatar do you like better?

I recently decided to change my avatar/profile picture to represent ArtFairly Aware.  This is the old one:
and this is the new one:
Did I make the right choice?  I chose the first one initially because it really showed the coffee bean.  But then I thought more about the effect I'd like to have on the world through using fair trade coffee in everything I make and by donating 5% to World Hunger and 5% to Feeding America.  The ornament is filled with ground coffee.

What do you think?  I'd love feedback!
