month in review: november

Where did November go?  I feel like I have been doing a lot of creative work, but it hasn't made it to the blog yet.  No tutorials this month to review, which kinda sucks.  I've been working hard on my craft room. Yesterday I received some new furniture and once I had it in place I squealed with delight...seriously.  I hope to hang some things on the wall and work on my sewing nook this weekend.  I'll update soon!

Oh, and the most important thing happened today....the cable man installed cable in my room today.  What?  You expect me to craft without TV?  What am I?  A cavewoman?  In all seriousness, sometimes I enjoy the quiet while I craft, sometimes I'm in the mood for music, but sometimes I just need to watch some Project Runway while I work.  (Btw, have you been watching Bravo's Work of Art reality show about artists?  I think I like it!)

Here's a little glimpse of what I was working on last weekend.  I scoured all the Black Friday ads, and I was only interested in one thing; a toaster oven from Target for $20.  I wanted it for crafting (of course) for baking clay.  I never felt comfortable baking clay in the same oven that I use to make food (once in awhile).  However, I wasn't willing to fight the crowds for a toaster oven.  We happened to go to Target on Saturday afternoon.  Low and behold there was one lonely toaster oven still sitting on the shelf.  I swiped it and spent the rest of the weekend putting it to good use.  It works great!

Did I mention that I'm not working on Fridays for the rest of the year?  I love it when I end up with extra vacation days.  I'm looking forward to getting caught up on some projects!

You can bake polymer clay in a toaster??? How? I wouldn't worry about baking it in your oven by the way, it's not a toxic plastic, but a toaster sounds like the way forward (my oven takes an hour to heat up!!)... You can also do stamping and embossing over a toaster, if you're so inclined!

Wow, I never considered using a toaster oven to bake clay before. What a terrific idea. I too have never used the oven to bake clay because it freaks me out. A toaster oven that I designate just to crafting- I just figured out what I want for Christmas!
