Been Away for Prego Belly

For those who follow me, just wanted to let you know I've been away because I am pregnant (19 weeks now) and for the past few months just being online made me want to throw up.  I am feeling much better now, actually great, and will be starting Cosmetology school on Monday, Aug 1st.  This will again be something that takes up a bit of time and may prevent me from posting regularly, although one day I will get this blogging thing down so I am posting more often.  I have plenty of worship songs that I've been working on that I can't wait to make everyone aware of, if you are not already.  I also have some awesomely cool things to post in tutorials, but been so sick, and busy on top of it.

Because of cosmetology school I'll have cool nail art and stuff to post as well eventually.  My main interest is nails so we'll see how that goes.  I hope everyone is well, and I hope to be back to business as usual soon (at least until baby #3 arrives).  For those who wish to help with the baby (we live with mother-in-law and husband is on his 2nd appeal for disability and we have NO baby stuff) please check out my Target registry under the name Anna Boyd.  Gift Cards from target or Joann's are much appreciated as well as I hope to make my own diaper bag, and baby bedding (we have a mini crib and bedding for them are well, awful).  Thanks to all my helpful friends ;).

Polymer Clay Cross Tutorial DIY

Having some fun again with the tutorials.  Still working on a good angle, think next one I might have something under my work area to get it closer to the camera.  Ah well.  I hope you enjoy this one.  I'm out of school for the summer, pregnant, and feeling crafty so I have a lot more stuff to put out there.  Especially things I cannot find tutorials on that I think need to be out there.  Again, as always, I have some awesome worship music going on in my vid.  If you don't like worship music then putting it on mute always helps.  I never look down on a video cause I don't like the song.  I just put it on mute, problem solved ;).  Enjoy and comments welcome.

Polymer Clay Butterfly Tutorial

I made this new tutorial or DIY video on making a polyclay butterfly.  I am still trying different angles to see which one I like better with the camera.  Coming soon is a cell phone case using the butterfly made in this video, and some other cool poly clay things.  I love making these, so refreshing.  LMK what you think.  God Bless

Cell Phone Case Decorating

Well, I am pretty sure I have been gone FOREVER!  I took an accelerated Chemistry class, so I've been very busy.  I'm still in college, still taking another Chemistry class, but a more normal pace one this time around.  Anywho, I hope you missed me ;).  And I hope your ready for some fun projects and whatever else comes to my mind.  For my first offering after being gone for a small portion of my life (I'll tell you more about that later) I give you my very first decorated cell phone case.

 I made some polymer clay flowers and a butterfly to add to the phone, and I didn't have any rhinestones or flatback swarovski crystals, but I was impatient and it was late so no stores were open.  I used czech crystals and swarovski bicone crystals.  I used E600 glue to put them all on the case which is easily removable.  I did this a couple nights ago, have banged my phone around a bit (which is why I need a hard case) and so far so good.  I actually love it, and bought two more clear cases off ebay (at about $1.50 each) so I can make myself two more covers.  I am actually loving this form of art and decoration, and even though I don't really want to even try selling them, since I suck at selling things, I must find some way to feed my addiction, lol.  We shall see.  Coming up later will be a video of me making a pendant thingie.  You'll see. 

I missed you guys, I missed my blog, and hopefully I can get myself in the habit of always stopping by to say HI!
