Hoppy Easter in Polymer Clay

Easter is truly a time of rebirth, new life and starting a new. Well yes and of pretty pastels and eggs, chicks, bunnies and pretty flowers. And peeps!

Just skimming through Artfire to find some polymer clay Easter. This Collectible Easter egg by KaelMijoy. It looks like those plastic beads you melt but it is actually made using polymer clay dots she textured. I can't help looking at this and just admiring the intricacy of it.

And from Easter eggs, baby chicks are just a step away. HarrisonHollowDesigns's adorable chick garden stake is the perfect decoration for your flowers. It is a funky yellow and orange with dangly legs. To me it is the perfect chick to have hatched from this egg. I love the orange swirls and green dots on this chick it just looks so springy

Then comes the Easter bunny to fill all the Easter baskets with candy. This cute set of 5 bunnies by me, FantasyClay are five times the fun. The colors are sweet and delicate but the bunnies look a little demented. they are only abut inch tall so they make a perfect decoration for your desk or an extra treat for everyone.

Then the Easter bunnies bring the peeps. Peeps more than anything else scream Easter. Actually they are best when they are a little stale. FyrestormCreations made a set of Peeps stitch markers. These are just too cute. They are mini peeps what else can I say! I can almost taste the sugar and marshmallow.

This Old Heart of Mine

Bronze and Silver HeartI got Christi Friesen's new Swellegant product with metal coatings as well me agents to darken or add green verdigris to the metal. This is my first attempt at this - I used bronze and silver to make a battered heart. I keep hearing Rod Stewart singing this old heart of mine...

I think I need to work on this a little more but for now this will look great on an antique bronze chain until I figure out my next step.
