My kind of ATM

Whenever I'm in the L.A. area, I always stop by to get my cupcake fix at Sprinkles. And just when you think you've seen it all...something like this pops up! A cupcake ATM! 
It's at their Beverly Hills location, I was at their Newport Beach store so I didn't get to try it out. 
I think it's perfect for those midnight cravings! I WANT ONE for my studio :o)

Thank you to everyone who stopped by Glitterfest on Saturday. It was a fun show!
One of the best things about doing shows, is getting to finally meet people in's nice to put a face with a name.

A New Home Fine Silver Necklace

Buzzz Bee Fine Silver Earring
~Honey Bee Earrings~

Fairy House Fine Silver Necklace
 ~Fairy House~ sold

I have been playing with fine silver (PMC)'s been awhile.
I forgot how much fun it is!
If you are not familiar with Precious Metal Clay is a product comprised of very small particles of pure silver suspended in a clay binder. It is then fired in the kiln to burn off the binder, the result is a piece of fine silver (99.9%)

This Saturday I'll be at Glitterfest in Santa Ana, CA from 10-4pm
So if you are in the area, stop by and say hi!
There will be handmade jewelry, sculpture, primitive dolls, paper whimsy and much much more!
