Fall is here!

It probably feels like I’ve fallen off the face of the Earth after I said I was off for a week long clay workshop. I kinda feel that way too. Life happened, adulting got in the way and this blog and clay in general really had to take a back seat for a while. But fear not, I still managed a few things here n there.

I made a few leaf suncatchers, similar to the butterflies. These are gracing my window at work. They seemed really big and many on my work surface at home but look lost on my window!! I think I need to add some more leaves, and maybe some larger ones.

I also found time to make some wee carved pumpkins to sit on my monitors. They are perched precariously secured by a bit of poster tack. I’d planned to make a whole bunch of these, inspired by Jennifer Sorensen¬† from Wishing Well Workshop, but only got around to these five.

I’m glad I made at least this though. I feel like I need to have more clay related things surrounding me at work, since I spend so much time there. I’ve been meaning to make a pen holder forever (my pens are stored in a paper cup right now. Sad, I know). I bought the galaxy tutorial from KatersAcres recently and I think that will make a nice pen stand. Hopefully I’ll have a little time to try it out soon.

Let me leave you with this mica colored leaf I made. Again, I’d planned to make a bunch of these and stick them in a vase, but the interesting leaves I brought home kept drying up before I got around to them!
