stores she knows.
phyllisinvegas: I like beads too
rossija9: I'm trying to avoid yet another hobby!
phyllisinvegas: lol i hear that one
rossija9: Though I don't think I'm going to be
successful -- a new bead store opened in my area....
I bought a book with bead & wire pins that I HAVE to
phyllisinvegas: some of those are gorgeous
phyllisinvegas: i have dabbled but nothing great yet
sybi98: <chuckles> I know the feeling
rjchase222: OOOOOOOO Mary figure it out & then teach
me!!! LOL
rossija9: LOL Raz
rossija9: I'm hoping to add to my butterfly
minimadness423: All you have to do is figure out a way
to incorporate beads into your PC then it isn't a new is just a variation of claying.
technically I only have one hobby as long as I can
justify and make a connection between miniatures,
needlework, sewing, PC, beading, etc....with that
connection no matter how thin, it is only one
rossija9: I'm also taking a painting class this Jan.
-- painting a mandala.
rossija9: LOL Kathy!
rjchase222: LMAO
phyllisinvegas: good way to look at it
rossija9: I think the connection for me will end up
being butterflies -- in clay, beads, fabric, paint....
 Think that'll work?
rossija9: LOL
phyllisinvegas: ever make some out of bow tie pasta?
phyllisinvegas: they make cute butterflies
rossija9: No, haven't tried that!
rossija9: I can see how they would....  Do you paint
phyllisinvegas: paint the pasta or emboss it add
anntenae and a body out of wire
phyllisinvegas: glitter or what have you for the wings
rjchase222: can ya post one of these pasta
rossija9: Hmmm...   :-?

epson folder!! Thanks!!

rjchase222: Thanks!!!
rossija9: Could make a "bowtie" out of a clay sheet...
phyllisinvegas: happy to oblige
phyllisinvegas: yes you could
rjchase222: OK Mary thats your challenge!!! :)
minimadness423: it all started with me in needlework
at age 8.  it went in to sewing...needle/thread still
one hobby...needlepoint, crewel, hardanger, drawn
work...all hooked on minis and for a
while I had two hobbies UNTIL I decided to miniaturize
my needlework...that's the it is back
to one hobby.  Now anything that goes into the mini
scenes is technically related to needlework via
miniatures.   creative folk can justify ANYthing
julia_dodge: bugs do not eat clay but they do eat
rossija9: OK...  I'll check the picture Phyllis posts
& see what I come up with...
phyllisinvegas: let me go see if I can find it now
rjchase222: k

minimadness423: I need 12 steps???? or I figured out
how to get around them???  LOL

phyllisinvegas: and speedy gonzalez does it again
debbie_in_nm: so when NJ works with a cane, when she's
ready to reduce it, she cuts in half and works with
just one half?
norajean_sf: I'll take questions
phyllisinvegas: there's one
sybi98: i like that idea - that way you can see what
it was and what it became - zen like
phyllisinvegas: NJ magic
sybi98: nj: how long have you been doing this?
phyllisinvegas: and she is self taught ladies
norajean_sf: I reduce the cane and get a middle bit to
work with to make things
rossija9: I'm seeing a mini jungle with these leaves
hiding a shelter of some sort....
norajean_sf: why reduce the ends when storing a long
cane is a hassle
norajean_sf: storing squat big ends is easier, that's
the only reason why I do it this way
phyllisinvegas: oh that is a good point NJ
sybi98: ahhhh ... soooo ...
norajean_sf: Then how long I've been doing this, as
long as the clay list been around, 6 years
debbie_in_nm: That one would make an awesome natasha

gray matter

sybi98: are the cane slices too smal to go thru the
rossija9: WEll, color-enhanced, like those images from
