I've been gone from the polymer clay world for a long time. In 2003 I went to Ravensdale and a lot of people I met there seemed convinced I would be teaching at the next one. Then clay took a backseat when I got a full time job and moved out on my own with my son. Now I'm married and a stay at home mom and I realized recently that I'm in the perfect position to pursue my dream of selling my artwork. By "perfect position" I mean that I have health insurance and time.
So the intimidating part is that the polymer clay community has exploded since I've been gone. While I still hold on to that dream of selling and teaching, I feel like I'm way behind. Instead of trying to catch up I will jump in where I am and make the most of it.
In light of all this, I think the vision I have for this blog has changed already. I'm going to talk about caning, my inspirations, and getting back up to speed with all the rest of the clay world.
