PayPal has given me my money back and I’ve ordered a new pasta machine so I can finally get started learning to craft with polymer clay. I learned my lesson well: Stay away from people selling machines for $13.45, and I did a whole lot more homework. Italian machines are the way to go and I’m willing to spend more money to get one. I know that Williams-Sonoma isn’t going to send me a machine with rusted rollers and isn’t it just beautiful?!?
If I can learn to make something gorgeous, I’ll sell it on eBay and make oodles of money to supplement my writing. I have two ideas. The first is a wrapped-wire doll like my friend Rhiannon makes, only instead of Flower Fairy Girls, I want to make Flower Faerie Kats. My second idea is to make decorated pots/jars to hold soap-coated silk rose petals and leaves (which I also make myself, scent and imbue with magical intent) to be kept in the bath or kitchen for quick wash ups.
