Woo hoo!!! Meri Cherry got a new makeover and I am soooo excited about it! I’ve been wanting a redesign of my blog forever and finally put one foot in front of the other and made it happen. That’s the trick right? Action steps are everything. Thanks to the incredible graphic designer and fellow(…)
How gorgeous is this flower headband made entirely from sculpey?!?! I wish I could take credit for it, but it was actually the inspired creation of an amazing nine year old student in my sculpey class. I know! Kids are amazing and I am totally in love with this headband. It definitely took some time(…)
I can’t say enough about how much I love sculpey. It’s just the most awesome polymer clay for kids and adults. (Check out this collection of Alien Army figures I made one summer pre kids) It’s one of my absolute favorite art materials and though on the pricey side, I find it to be well(…)

I know I’ve mentioned my sculpey art enrichment class before and how awesome it is, but I don’t think I’ve explained why I think the kids in my class love it so much. With the holidays coming up, I thought it would be a good time for an Ode to Sculpey post. Here are the(…)

I was searching for projects for my sculpey class and I came across this link. I was inspired by the little guy’s face in the middle and thought he needed some buddies. I made a sample and sure enough the kids in my class were inspired as well. I love the babies they made. On(…)
It’s been over three years since I created Alien Army. Since then, I have created over two hundred unique Alien Army figures for kids of all ages to enjoy. Their mission is simple, to save the universe one planet at a time. This year, my goal is to make Alien Army a household name.(…)
I had some very sweet friends over today for a gnome day. (age 8) We made gnomes and mushrooms from sculpey and then created gardens for the them to live in. Really fun project. I got everything from Michael’s which is around the corner from my house. Reason enough to never move.
And this is why crowdspring rocks. Thanks to Norbert Demeter for the amazing design. Poster coming soon.
