Today marks the beginning of an exiting new feature here at the blog. I’m going to start doing special feature articles based on photos and stories submitted by YOU!
A couple of days ago in my post about Graffiti Fashion Jewelry, Arlene Harrison summed up what many others have been saying for a quite a while now… “It’s a shame you don’t have a way for people to send you pictures of what they do with your lessons. I’ve used several.”
And here are links to a couple of other discussion threads where this photo sharing feature has been discussed at length… Make them with Polymer Clay and Polymer Clay Projects. In particular at these links, have a look at the “What-Went-Wrong” and “What-Was-I-Thinking” concepts that were presented.
Well Arlene and everyone else… you are right! And the quickest way to get this going is to simply use email.
So if anyone wants to send me your project photos, my email address is in the “From” field of every Polymer Clay Newsletter issue.
Or you can simply leave me a comment below any article here at the blog, saying something to the effect of “…my d’Anjou Pear bead turned out so cute I can’t stand it! Cindy please give me your email address so I can get some photos over to you.” [Hint, Hint Elizabeth]
When you submit your photos, be sure to also include descriptions and stories that can be posted along with your pictures. Be funny. Be informative. Be inspirational. I absolutely love creative writing :-)
By the way, the reason I don’t add my email info right here in this article, is because there are nasty little spambots that roam around the Internet harvesting anything and everything that even resembles those kind of links.
So this is my first lesson and I loved it!!!! I’ve been doing this for a little under a year mostly learning from books and little bits off the net… I must admit I’ve been following your newsletter for a couple months now and I finally bit the bullet (I’m very “frugal”) and got a subscription. OMG!!! In my 2 days off I made a ton of fabulous beads. I loved them so much I had to sand them and polish them to finish… which I never get around to until weeks later. I used up about half of my scrap clay and some old canes!!! Thank you so much. It was a fabulous couple of clay days! Can’t wait for the next installment!!! ~Melinda (Helena, Montana, USA)
Don’t you just love her enthusiasm?! She got so excited that the sanding and polishing didn’t even seem like a chore. How great is that?!
I think you will all agree that Melinda did an excellent job on her Jupiter Beads! They turned out absolutely fantastic! Please join me in telling her so, in the comments section below.
