The Woodland Home Gets Mossy

I am obsessed with moss, so I was thrilled to learn that the Nutmegs are, too, and that they want their little woodland retreat to feature plenty of it.

Making Polymer Clay Ice Cream

I’ve been working on custom orders today, and seeing the finished batch of tiny ice cream cone earrings brought a smile to my face–I just had to share.
