I caught a shooting star!

That's right! I saw it glittering through the sky, so I whipped out my wire spool and lassoed that baby right on down to Earth. I was nice enough to catch one for you too!



I made these necklaces out of polymer clay, tons of glitter, and thin wire wrapped tightly around the star for a "caged" look. I think they'd be a perfect gift for space fanatics, science lovers, or daydreamers. You can find them right here in my etsy shop.

Speaking of polymer clay, I'm teaching a class on December 5th where you can make one of these:



It's a peppermint lollipop that you can use as an ornament, a pendant, or both! The cost is $5, and that includes all supplies. If you're interested in attending, you can visit the make: Tulsa website, where you will find an email address at the bottom of the page. Just send an email mentioning that you'd like to enroll in the lollipop class. Or, just show up! I'll have plenty of extra supplies, so enrolling in advance is optional. As an added bonus, this event will take place at the Fresh Roast coffee house, so you can have a drink and browse the Fresh Blend Boutique, a mini-store with items from the Tulsa Craft Mafia and friends, when you're done crafting.

I'm so excited to be teaching a polymer clay class! You may have witnessed me bragging about how much effort I put into creating fun lessons like the one I described in this post, for example. Well this class will be no different. I plan to do everything I can to ensure that the participants in this class will take home something they will love for years to come.

Since so many of you seemed to enjoy the pictures of my kitty acting frisky under the rug, I'll end this post by showing you more cuteness. But my problem is that I can't decide which is more adorable: his little pink nose...



...or his little pink toes. Could someone help me out here? I just can't decide.



Have a precious day, my friends! ♥

I vote for little pink kitty toes!

I'm looking forward to the lollipop class. I may see if my dad's girlfriend wants to bring her daughter and my sister.

Ooooh, the starts are absolutely gorgeous!!

The pink kitty toes are cuter than the nose, but only by a tiny lil margin!!

I love the star necklaces!! You are amazing! But then you already knew that :)
I used to make wood toys for the boys when they were little. Nothing like a handmade toy, that doesn't say "made in China".
So glad the postcard arrived safely!!

Gee, that peppermint lolly pop is so lovely, I wish I could attend one of your classes, perhaps you could do a tutorial on here for Christmas?

I vote toes. They are just so nice to play with when kitties are sleepy!

That lollipop is cute!

The best thing about it is once your "students" learn to make one, they can make dozens. What a cute gift for co-workers, ornament exchanges, or put by the dozen in a flower vase!

Brian Burke said...

What a cute little buddy! Your class sounds fun!

JUST ME said...

I'm probably going to have to buy myself something from your Etsy shop for Christmas...

Jennifer Juniper said...

It would be so fun to come to your class! And I'm not a cat girl, but that Kitty is very cute. Especially the toes :)

Oh aren't those darling - nice work! You can totally see the frisky buzzing in those kitty eyes, too. Very cute pic.

Happy Thanksgiving,

devonrose said...

Aww! Your kitty is too cute. I just snapped the cutest photo of the twins kitty (sleeping in a pile of their stuffed toys) and I thought "I should post this for Holly"!

Kristin said...

Those necklaces are just adorable!

Rheea said...

Holly, I'm so excited you caught a shooting star. I've never seen one in my life. Was it beautiful? Did you manage to make any wish?? Good luck on yr first art class! With the star you saw, this must be a good sign. :) I hope you bring back some photos.

I'm voting for the pink toes! Your kitty looks really nice and soft to cuddle. Happy Thanksgiving, buddy! :)
