Brrrrrr it's cold!

It's still freezing here in Texas and I'm under a mountain of blankets trying to keep warm. We had an over night temperature of one degrees and will have a high of five degrees tonight. We've had power outages, gas outages and frozen water pipes. Friends and family have called to inform me of burst water pipes. So far no burst pipes over here, hopefully my luck will not turn. The pipes in my kitchen have been frozen since late last night, I just pray they don't burst over night. I would be in a world of hurt if they did.

When I have electricity I go to my studio and work on my jewelry, which is also the warmest room in the house. I'm still playing with polymer clay and it is still a learning process. I pull at it and roll it and combine different colors. Sometimes I come upon a happy accident but when I try to recreate it I can't.
These particular pieces are the results from just such a session. I know, very amateurish but I am pleased with my novice results. . I would love to get advice from polymer clay artists, every little bit would help.
Here's hoping you are having a warmer night than I am. Good night.
