My first dragon

When CatsWire challenged me to create a tiny dragon I was so excited to try to make one. Sculpting is my first love with polymer clay but I had never attempted a dragon before.


She is tiny. about 1 3/4 inches tall including horns and 3 inches long.


She was so much fun to make that I will be making more! It felt so good to get back into sculpting again.

Giant Insect Sculptures

Yesterday morning my husband and I visited the Botanical Gardens in Huntsville, Alabama. There are several very large, beautiful and detailed insect sculptures created by David Rogers.

There is only one more week left to see them. There will be an "extermination party" hosted by the artist at 6pm Monday the 13th. There are more photos in my flickr stream in the Wild Outdoors set.

I wanted this to appear as if it were made of old stone. It is actually polymer clay.

Be careful what you download

Yesterday one of my favorite twitter buddies and I were recommended to download Twiping.
Twitter has changed their following page so that now you have to click an icon on each tweeter to see if they followed and turned around and unfollowed as soon as you followed them back. Twiping is supposed to make it easy to see if someone does that.

I did not install it because it told me that I would have to install NET framework in order to run it. I refused to download anything else. Good for me. Not so good for him.

Because my fellow tweeter downloaded Twiping his account got hacked. He contacted me because he was afraid I also ran the program on my computer. He is a good guy. Now his hacked account is posting spam over and over and... you get it.

Be very, very careful what you download.
