When I was younger I worked in a bakery for five years.  I was a young mother of two going through a difficult divorce and work was my only outlet.  Sixteen years later and I still enjoy baking.  My husband and my three kids went through this cake in record time, it lasted only 30 minutes. 
It is truly a chocolate lovers dream.  It has chocolate fudge, chocolate pudding and 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. 
That piece you see there is waiting for me along with a cup of milk.  Extra time at the gym tomorrow.

I took an encaustic workshop last week and created these two pieces.  I enjoyed myself and enjoyed the whole process of creating paintings with wax.  I found it difficult to lose control to the medium, hot wax wants to do what it wants to do.  Hopefully this won't be my only venture with this medium. 
Hope you are having a nice night.

New Pieces

I've been playing around with different designs with polymer clay and came up with these new pieces.  I feel as if I am on a time crunch because I only have one and a half weeks left of summer vacations.  Hopefully I will continue to feel inspired in the small amount of time that I have left.
I still have so much to learn, aside from a couple of tutorials and books that I have read, I havn't had much exposure to this medium. 
It sure is fun learning, though.
