The blog roll has started again for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild of Artfire.  This weeks topic is hearts.  Appropriate, considering we are only a little over three weeks away from Valentines day.  My, how quickly time passes.  I know that a lot of the Smooshers have been hard at work getting out their items in time for the holiday.  Problem is, there are so many great items, it's hard to choose just a few for this blog. 

What do you think of when you think of hearts?  Love of course, red of course {though a fellow smoosher thinks of green!}, Valentines Day... absolutely of course, possibly broken {hopefully not}, and for us medical and health.  So, whatever comes to your mind when you hear the word, I hope you enjoy these selections.

I know, I know, I said red!  But, this beautiful heart necklace from Dragonfly Serenade just drew me in.  See this and many more unique items at

Here is a nifty, fun heart bracelet from RenGalSa.  See more of her work at

This heart necklace was made by Jansart.  To see more of her designs check out

It's done!  My second entry {and this is a actually do two things 8^)} for the Valentines challenge with the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild of Artfire.  I actually drew up this idea and went for it.  Most of the time, what I have in mind or draw, does not turn out quite the way I imagined.  I was very pleased with the trinket box, and now, this necklace looks pretty much like I thought it would.  Must be doing something right!

I'll be listing this on Artfire soon.

Polymer Clay Smooshers challenge 2nd item

I have the components for my second piece in this months challenge made.  I just have to determine how I want to put it together and get it done!  It's wonderful to see all the works being created by the other smooshers.  I am looking forward to seeing everything people come up with.

Ok, I finished my first item for the Valentine's Polymer Clay Smoosher's Guild challenge. 

The trinket box is made entirely of polymer clay and embellished with pink tipped white briar roses and white hearts.  Hope you like it. 

Check out the smooshers blog for more items in this challenge at

If I have enough time, I plan to make another piece for the challenge.  This is fun, I have to admit.  It is really making me take a step outside my comfort zone, but is forcing me to take things slow and really make sure I do it right.  I am very happy with the way this one turned out.  Time to get creative and think up some additional ideas for other trinket boxes.
