When you’re driving places and you see something that you want to grab a photograph of but it’s difficult to pull over while driving. I finally was able to pull over on 890 NYS Thruway on my way to The Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery. This is one of a few smoke stack buildings in Amsterdam, New York, which is located on Lock 10. All photos were taken November 6th, 2019.
Of course when it comes to street graffiti, I love it. Heading into Amsterdam, I discovered this abandoned business on East Main Street. So once again I pull over, get out of my car quick, and grab a quick photo of this unique street art. See more street graffiti on my blog with time as I do more traveling.
After Sow’s Ear Studio closed almost 2 years ago, selling my polymer clay jewelry has been hard. Now a new door has opened for me in Gloversville, New York. It’s called The Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery. A cute little gallery within a coffee shop and small grocery store. With a coop, I work 3-4 days out of the month and promote my jewelry art. These are just a few photos of my jewelry taken from our art opening last night. If you’re in Gloversville, New York stop by 30 N. Main Street Gloversville, New York. Looking forward to seeing you.
Well folks, here’s the second spring for the northeast, I can’t believe autumn 2019 is here. Seems like I was just planting new flowers outside, enjoying the long days, shorts, sandals, and of course, no cold weather. Now autumn is here and it’s let’s see how much can I get done outside before it gets dark. I’ll admit, I do love the colors of these trees I managed to take pictures of while I was doing errands the last two weeks. It’s funny when your driving how long it takes for a red light to turn green before you go. Managed to grab a few quick snapshots with the long red lights I had while driving to some places. Want to grab a few more photos while I’m driving before all the leaves fall off the trees. Lots of nice trees changing in Colonie New York and Niskayuna New York. I’ll be hitting Amsterdam New York, Johnstown New York, and Gloversville New York in the next week or two when I set up my polymer clay jewelry at The Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery in Gloversville, New York. Can’t wait to show you.
Driving to Gloversville,New York for the last few months and having a desire to spread my wings to get a new social life, I became a member of The Micropolis Cooperative Art Gallery yesterday. See new posts from this beat art gallery,as well as Fulton County.
I’m amazed at how summer has come and gone so fast and now look at what’s here, Autumn. Grabbed this photo of this holly bush walking the other day with the some of the leaves turning red and most of them are still green. Autumn is still warm, though with the leaves changing colors, I know the warm weather won’t be here much longer. With enjoying the end of summer, cleaning up outside, working on new material, it’s been crazy the last couple of weeks.
Discovering the endless possibilities with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay, I ordered a special silicone mold with a hole on the top to make pendants. This pendant looks like sea glass, but it’s liquid polymer clay. I currently working on a line of pendants that look like sea glass, but they’re made with liquid polymer clay. I also taking my drawing to a whole new level with greeting cards. Watching these items come alive in the next couple of weeks.

I can’t believe that it’s the first day of July is already here and summer 2019 has begun. Summer is just begun and it seems to be flying by so fast. With working on polymer clay, crochet, drawing, getting our new studio started, I feel like it’s a race to see what projects can get done quick. 4th of July is Thursday and I’ll be grilling some steaks and watching the Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular. See the grill come alive on Thursday, along with some new handmade work. I will also be uploading some new items to my Etsy shop soon.
Hello Summer 2019! What’s been happening with summer so far.
Premo Sculpey Accents Gemstone Polymer Clay
After getting back into working with polymer clay a few weeks ago, I discovered that Premo Sculpey Accents came up with a new collection of polymer clay, polymer clay gemstones. I bought a few bars of opal, goldstone, and a few other gemstones I’ll reveal later. This photograph reveals an opal polymer clay donut cabochon and a black and white sparkling zebra cane. The best part of this polymer clay is that it doesn’t require mixing or measuring because it’s already done for you. Make gemstone jewelry, sculptures, beads, and more with this unique polymer clay. With experimenting and researching new polymer clay ideas, I’m looking forward to showing more handmade creations that I’ve made.
In The Kitchen
With Father’s Day on June 16th, 2019 The Prock kitchen smelled like a beautiful breakfast. Here’s my recipe for a nice quick and easy breakfast to make for your family.
French Toast With Scrambled Eggs And Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage
1-2 Bags Of Pepperidge Farm Blueberry Bread, or your favorite kind of bread.
Maple Syrup Or Your Favorite Kind Of Syrup.
3 Packages Of Alfresco Fully Cooked Apple Maple Breakfast Sausage
In one bowl, mix about 2-3 eggs and place your bread in egg mixture and coat bread evenly on both sides. Place your bread with egg in a frying pan or griddle that is coated with cooking spray. Allow your bread to cook for about 1-2 minutes on both sides.
I’ve discovered that making scrambled eggs in the microwave is so much easier then a frying pan. It makes less of a mess in the microwave then a pan, so it’s easier to clean up. Sounds crazy, but it’s true.
In a small bowl, add a tablespoon of butter and place in the microwave for 30 seconds. When butter is melted, add to your beaten eggs with milk. Depending on how many eggs you’ve mixed in your bowl, I always cook the eggs 1 minute per egg. So say you have 4 eggs in your bowl, cook your eggs for about 4 minutes. When your eggs have reached the 2 minute mark, take out of the microwave and stir. This moves the eggs that are not quite cooked on the bottom. Place your bowl back in the microwave and finish the two minutes of cooking time. If your eggs are still not quite cooked. Place your eggs back in for 1 minute.
Alfresco Breakfast Sausage
For those of you who are not familiar with this kind of sausage, it’s fully cooked so all you have to do is remove from the package and brown evenly on each side in a frying pan. Alfresco is a chicken sausage so it’s got less fat and preservatives, and the apple maple makes it taste better. Find this sausage in the meat department of your supermarket.
Summer Is Here Already
I can’t believe that the first day of summer was on June 21st, 2019. Summer is here already, oh my god where has this year has gone? Summer so far has been pretty good with watching the flowers pop open, baby birds coming to our bird feeder, baby squirrels, and much more.
