    For the June Program of the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild, I was asked to present how I make fairy doors. For me, this is a sculpting program but canes can also be used to decorate each piece. If you are a caner, you can finish any part of the fairy door (or all of it!) […]

    Stock Photos

    In my previous job as a magazine writer, I often needed to source free stock images and sxc was a great destination. Through the years, the site was converted to Free Images. As a way of giving back and thanking the generosity of photographers worldwide, I started contributing photos too.
