Heartfelt thanks to everyone who visited me at Kaneville Fest last weekend. It was great fun to see familiar faces and to meet many new visitors who appreciate handmade items. I hope to get into a holiday show or two and there will be another PK Handmade Open House in November. I will keep you posted on dates and times. Now that I’ve taken a few days to unwind and catch up on some home work, I am feeling inspired again and ready to shift into this beautiful fall season.
But first I thought I’d share the results of the day P and I spent crafting with air dry clay. After rolling the clay to a thickness of about 1/4 inch, I cut out a shape with a cookie cutter. Then I impressed a variety of textured items into it.
This is a thrifted crochet doilie.
The handle of an antique spoon.
The arms of a starfish.
Half the fun was finding textural things to use. These will be framed in a shadow box when I find the right one.
Enjoy this beautiful weekend!
