It's 2017!!

Ok, I admit I've been a bad blogger! I've neglected this blog. I'm not really a writer so putting my thoughts into writing is a bit hard for me. Sharing RockyBeads updates through instagram and facebook is the easiest for me because one or two liners work!  haha But here I am again trying to resurrect theclayingmommy blog. So bear with me if my writing is just blah blah blah. I will try my best to make it interesting.

Let's have a rundown of the events these past two years. I'm still a stay at home mum to my boys. Still busy with the toddler and when he's big enough to go to school, it would be time for me to go back to work again. So for the meantime, it's back to RockyBeads for me. I just went back to full time claying last year. I made a few orders mostly family portraits. Here are some of the finished pieces...

 I've been busy updating my etsy shop also. I joined an etsy market too and it was so fun. I also joined Handmade Alchemy. I took this info about our group from fb - "Alchemy can be defined as a seemingly magical process of transformation &/or creation. This magical process of transformation and creation is the perfect way to describe what you'll find from our talented Australian artists in the form of polymer clay and metal components for jewellery makers, craft and mixed media artistry. Essentially we are a marketplace group where you can buy handmade beads and/or components to use in your own creations. Our Australian sellers have been invited to sell their work via showcases because they create with a unique style, use excellent technique and strive for a high-level of craftsmanship in either polymer clay, metal or both mediums."   So if you are looking for unique components to use in your jewellery, head on to our group in fb. It's a fun group to belong to. I am planning of having another showcase soon. Here are some samples of the polymer clay components I made and sold there..

And to end 2016 in a high note, we moved from Sydney to the Central Coast.  I think I can already say that we're finally settled at our new home. Busy with fixing the house and exploring the Coast. I thought of writing again in this blog because I want to share with you not only my adventures in claying but also our (me and hubby) fun but tiring shenanigans in fixing our home. We've been busy fixing the garden. Lots of weeding and cleaning to do. I feel so fulfilled that I was able to clean one side yesterday. I didn't really expect that gardening would be so fun and relaxing...just like claying! Here are some photos of our garden (still have a lot to to but taking it one day at a time)...
Cut a lot of branches so that the lemon tree will have some sun. I can't wait for the lemons to turn yellow! :)

Adding mulch and sand is next in line.

I repotted some plants and transferred the Jade plants from the back of the house to this part of the garden. We added some hanging plants too! 

I hope you could join me this year and I also hope that I will be faithful in updating this blog! Let's have a wonderful 2017!! :)
