Ash Wednesday Icons

     After the baby blue from yesterday, here are some hearts and icons in a lighter tone for Ash Wednesday. My little Methodist church behind the house is having an Ash Wednesday service tonight. It's very small, and there are only a few of us, but very special and meaningful. Most of the folks who attend are from the neighborhood. 
     For a long time I dreaded making bezels, because my mock-ups in polymer clay weren't tight and smooth, so I had to do a lot of cleanup after casting. While I had the time off, I re-created the bezels, and made new molds from the brand new shapes. Now they are tight and there isn't as much cleanup after casting. So I was able to make quite a few in the few days I had in the studio. 
     I've been meaning to do this for quite some time. It's the TIME factor that has held me back. I had a whole list of to-do's while I had the last few days available, and I got quite a few items crossed off!
     I had little hearts like these in the Etsy shop when I first moved to Louisiana, but lately I haven't had any available - but I resolve to keep them around from now on!

Yea for the new pieces! I love them. And I love to know the process. It makes the magic all the more special to me. Enjoy the day!

THANKS, friends. It's so fun seeing them come together. You are both creative too, so I'm sure you understand what I mean.

And it is wonderful to hear that you like them! Creating by myself, I only know if I like them, it's good to hear that you do, too!
