What makes you smile?

That's the topic for this week's Smooshers Blog Ring.  Simple things make me smile: my Calcifer kitty snuggling with me, the beautiful flowers blooming in my yard, the smell of a campfire on a warm summer night.  I find great pleasure and countless smiles in animals and nature.  And of course the Polymer Clay Smooshers guild makes me smile!  The wonderful creations I've seen from my fellow guild members always make me smile.  So I'd like to share with you some of those creations.  I can't go into a single Smoosher's shop without finding something that brings a smile to my face!
This beautiful Orchid magnet from Amazing Designs is sure to brighten anyone's day!  And she offers several different varieties of Orchid magnets, so be sure to check them all out.

And then there's Clay Cat Shop- I can't enter this studio without falling in love with just about everything! 
This one is called Loving the Bad Wolf and I adore this sculpture!  So much can be said in polymer clay ;-)

Loving the Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood / Caperucita Roja
The creations from Desert Rubble always make me smile too.  I love all of her Steampunk pieces, as well as items like this beautiful Fairy Door Pendant (fairies make me smile too). 
Fairy Jewelry Door/Key Pendant in Faux Wood w/Green Vine, Purple Leav 
This sculpture from Fesser Arts is called Love Grows, and it made me smile the minute I saw it.  It's very pretty and would look wonderful hanging on the wall where everyone could see it and share a smile :)
Love Grows Polymer Sculpture 
There are so many things about the Smooshers that make me smile.  I consider many of the members my friends as well, and I love sharing sculpting tips, mistakes, and creations with all of them.  Take the time to browse these shops and find a few smiles of your own ;-)
