Silver Scottish Tartans to Cap Off the 2011 Holiday Collection

I have been a busy little bee lately, so busy that I didn't get to execute as many designs for the 2011 Holiday Collection as I would have liked.  I capped off the collection with some Scottish Tartans framed in Silver.  Don't tell anyone, but I think I like the silver better than the brass.  The colors in the tartans really pop against the silver background, and they are very festive. 

Bonnie, just a note to tell you the Velveeta Fudge was such a hit.  I made 2 pounds for Thanksgiving, and it was scarfed up in 15 minutes.  It is decadent and addictive.  I have shared the recipe with upwards of 30 people since Thanksgiving.  Word has spread.  Velveeta Fudge has become viral!

I am still waiting on my copy of the Purple issue of "From Polymer To Art" to arrive, so I still haven't actually seen the tutorial I wrote for it, but I wanted to thank everyone who has sent me their congratulations, so THANK YOU, everyone!

I am now energized and itching to get back in the studio this weekend and create something new. 

I have a few orders to fill, including some family orders for memory pendants embellished in brass and silver, which I am very excited to try.  This will be an image transfer weekend, but I am also going to try and sneak in some time to write a couple of quick tutorials, hopefully on how to create more of the faux bone special projects (you all have just torn through the projects in the new tutorial!) and a few more quick projects using other techniques.

These are so cool! I was just with a good friend, who's Scottish and Irish! I know, a bad combination! LOL We were in a Celtic shop and she proudly showed me her Crawford tartan. I need to order one from you.

That is just gorgeous! I don't know why, but I'm partial to silver to I really think this is beautiful. What a wonderful idea you had to do these.

I loved the article! You look very different than I pictured you! I don't know why, but I pictured you with light hair. Funny how we do that isn't it?

And I still can't imagine velveeta fudge. I'll take your word for it.

I too believe the tartan colors pop more with the silver. These are beautiful creations!

That's lovely :). I really need to get back into my polymer clay, I've neglected it for too long.
