20 Things: Clay ConneCTion

I spent last weekend with the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild at their biennial retreat.  Four days on the campus of Connecticut College in New London, staying in the dorm, eating in the dining hall, claying for many hours at a stretch.  It’s always a tremendous amount of fun, and it’s a great opportunity to spend time with some friends that I don’t get to see very often.  And, without further ado, here’s the 20:

  1. Won a small clay painting
  2. And then gave it away.
  3. Tabasco, Tabasco, Tabasco, Sriracha.
  4. Got blue nail polish & little tiny skull decals (Thanks, Jenn!)
  5. Mokume ganed the day away
  6. Met Ellen Burstyn
  7. Ate snickerdoodles
  8. Bought studded, rhinestoned platform pumps
  9. Made the pilgrimage to Wolf Myrow
  10. Roasted the Yost
  11. Smuggled food out of the dining hall
  12. Learned the 16 square cane
  13. Vanilla vodka + Rangtang + tonic = yum.
  14. “This is the year of the extruder.”
  15. Made many components for….something
  16. Threw a small party in the dorm room
  17. Received a lovely pair of earrings (Thanks, Libby!)
  18. Hung with the clay peeps
  19. Suffered the tyranny of the scrap
  20. What the chicken?!?

See you all in 2014!

    You nailed the 20 things, sums up the ClayConnection completely!! The rhinestone platforms are the bomb! It was a good time, lots of stuff to learn and absorb (the hot sauce is in the bottle labeled ‘hot sauce’), lots of great demos and spending time with good friends. You can’t say fairer than that. ‘I Could Have Danced all Night’ had my back not been in such a pathetic state. BTW, don’t forget we smuggled something into the dining hall, as well as out of it.
