Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing 4th.  Lucky enough to have a 4 day work week, though what a week it's been.  I almost think it's not worth the extra day off, what with all the work you have when you return!  

This weeks Polymer Clay Smooshers challenge is Americana....quite appropriate, don't ya think??!! Of course, what better representation of America, than red, white and blue. 

Here is a beautiful bracelet made by Blue Morning Expressions;

Need individual beads to make your own unique creation??  Look at BeadsbyHaffina.

Cane work comes in all types of designs.  The idea is to make a continuing pattern throughout the clay, that can be sliced for use in any number of ways.  Think rolls of cookie dough.  Canes can range from a simple bulls eye {one color wrapped around another} to very intricate patterns that simply amaze.  If cane making is not your forte, just browse My Polymer Clay Canes for creations you can purchase and use in your own jewelry making adventures.  Here is one that shows the true meaning of Americana.

Well, I need to get busy for our show Saturday.  Let's hope the weather cooperates and the shoppers are out ready to buy.  Oh, by the way, look at our shop on ArtFire for the Christmas in July sale. 

Til next time;
"Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame."
- Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)
