Finding Joy in the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild

A feeling of joy and the Polymer Clay Smooshers go hand in hand for me.  Not only do I get great joy from my fellow guild members themselves, but from their wonderful work, as well.  So many items I see in their shops make my jaw drop, or bring a big smile to my face.  This guild is full of amazing and talented people, who are also kind, funny, and inspirational.  I'd like to share just a few pieces from these wonderful artists that bring me joy.  DesertRubble is a recent addition to the Smooshers, and I fell in love with her work the minute I saw it, especially this Steampunk Dragonfly.
Steampunk Jewelry Dragonfly Art Pendant w/ Industrial wings 
This is one talented Smoosher!  I love the color and the iridescence.  And a dragonfly seems to fit naturally into the Steampunk trend.  She's got plenty of other unique and beautiful items in her shop as well, and I love them all.

This sculpture from KBish is just so sweet!  It makes me smile every time I see it.
Best Friends- Dragon fantasy Figurine 
Even dragons need a best friend!  I just love the whimsy of the piece, and the expressive dragon with his cute little green friend. 

When I first saw this piece from Kneaded Things I laughed out loud because it was just so cool!  Talk about character!  This mushroom is loaded with character!
Mr. Mushroom Incense Burner 
This is one of the coolest incense burners I've seen.  First, Mr. Mushroom is just totally awesome, second the colors are beautiful and  vibrant, and third, I adore the flowers in the grass.  Just a delightful item!

And then there's LaDeDa- this gal's always able to make me smile- LOL!  The first time I saw her Punk Rock Christmas ornaments I loved them instantly, especially this one.  I think it's the spiked hair and sunglasses that really grab me.Christmas Ornament Punk Rock Pinky Polymer Clay Snowgirl Snow Rocker 
These are definitely unique Christmas ornaments!  They're just fun, and they make me smile. :)
And these are just a few of the pieces from the Smooshers that bring me joy, make me laugh, or smile, or say "wow, that's really cool!".  I want to thank these artists for bringing a little extra joy into my life. ;)
