For the past 2 days I've been feeling great when I start my job. I'm wide awake, ready to face the challenges I might encounter and feeling very confident. Both days I've been surrounded by others who have been either sick or sluggish or just not doing what they're supposed to and it has affected me. I don't like that I've allowed them to "bring me down". I'm not sure how to overcome the negative effect. It seems like I handled it better than I have in the past, but I still need alot of work in this area.

I love being creative. My favorite mediums are glass, beads, polymer clay and paints. The picture is of an outlet cover I made in polymer clay following the inspiration of Christie Friesen. Its in my dining room. Its been up for about a month now and everytime I see it I smile.
Today I've been working on a second mermaid after being inspired by http://tinkerart.typepad.com/tinker_art/
She published a pattern and I thought it'd be cool to make one in polymer. I did one straight from her pattern last night. I embellished with glitter, embossing powder, and pearlx mica powders. I coated it in a thick layer of UTEE to give a great glass sheen to the little gal. Here's how she turned out.
Today I've made my own smaller pattern using the same concept to make a paper doll like mermaid. She's not quite done yet but is looking fab.
