From May 2016

Carole gets some class —- finally !!!

You were ALL hoping that I have matured in some grand way! NOPE

I just checked off a goal I have been too scared too timid (yeah me timid) too reluctant to do UNTIL now !

I taught my 1st polymer clay class! I have taught for 1 on 1 or small groups but this was a class hosted by my local library the Ferguson Library in Stamford Ct.

Thanks to the support of my guild and friends  at the library and at Makin’s Clay I got enough confidence to reach out to the library and ask if I could teach my Journey Totem class.

I was like a girl that wanted to play Double Dutch

I read about Double Dutch

I watched Videos on Double Dutch

I talked about wanting to try Double Dutch ……. But I

NEVER JUMPED IN !!!!!!!!!!

I guess I was afraid of getting hit on the face with the rope  or falling or NOT being good at it !

Every year I have a goal or a theme for that year.

This year 2016 is the year of giving back!

I want to share my joy of creating with others. I want others to find solace and peace in their creations. I feel so blessed that I get to do things that I love and enjoy. Thanks to Makin’s Clay I get to play and explore —-and fail (3rd time’s a charm)

Makin’s donated all the clay to my class  since it is air dry clay I do not have to schlepp a small oven to class.

I hope to share the joy of creating with others and learn from them at the same time.

Ode to Prince

Making Doves Cry

I was a teenager in the 80’s. I rocked BIG HAIR big parachute pants and NEON colors !

Prince was one of my favorites! I showed up at my prom in a beat up Van NOT a LIMO

The van had  a kick-ass sound system installed by my prom date Carl!

( yeah I know Carl +Carole gag me with a spoon as they would say! )

Shawn was our chauffer/chaperone to make sure we did not get too crazy although we were blasting Prince’s LET’S GET CRAZY as well pulled up the hotel entrance where the prom was being held. I can still see Shawn in his cut off denim shorts and t-shirt with a tuxedo painted on the front gallantly open the side door to the van!

I’m still close friends with Carl and most of my close knit high school group!

Prince will forever have a piece of my heart !

You can see every single step how I made this sculpture on the Makin’s Clay site.

What was your fondest memory in High School?
