Polymer Clay Playing with Ideas

This week I have finally picked up the clay again, but was abruptly halted when my clay extruder gun decided to die on me! As I was mid flow in my making I had to promptly order another and am now eagerly awaiting its arrival.

However it did'nt stop my flow and Tuesday I was working on some new ideas that popped into my head, I usually have to make a note of them otherwise they will be lost in the mess that is my brain.
