I have always been a crafter, my Mom taught me how to crochet as a child. My Mom was very creative, although she didn't think that of herself. I have tried lots of different crafts, including scrap-booking, rubber stamping, flower arranging, embroidery, just to name a few. Once I found polymer clay, I turned what was just a craft into what I think as my art.
I dream about new & different textures I will try, what kind of shape to make and of course colors! Polymer clay gives me the artistic freedom to mimic many different types of natural materials. One polymer artist calls it the chameleon clay and I would agree.

Recently I was introduced to bead-weaving and instantly fell in love with it. I find it so relaxing to stitch all those little beads! I started with an easy spiral bracelet and then moved on to free form. I tried bead embroidery and decided to add my own polymer clay cabochons and beads to the designs. Finally I started writing beading patterns! Those are fun to write. I include very detailed, close up photos and easy to follow instructions in all of my patterns.

I have been active on Etsy since 2008 where I opened up my first shop, Cabin Fever Creations. I started out slow, listing just my polymer clay jewelry designs. After I wrote a short article for Polymer Cafe in August 2009, I decided to try writing polymer clay tutorials. I have had much success with my "Rocky Path Tutorial" thanks to a posting on Polymer Clay Daily and many, many references on other blogs.
