Oh....So Sweet ;-)

Dear Reader:

I'm sure from the posts that i have posted over the last two to three years that you would have realised that i am not out to do this for a purely commercial reason. It's a passion which i have developed over the years since my secondary school art teacher introduced us to air-dry clay. For me, it's a work-life balance thing. I just like to feel and knead clay and materialise projects which my imagination has set forth upon. And presto, one day, individuals and schools started to ask me to teach them.

Blogshops and online businesses dealing with air-dry clay or polymer clay have sprung up worldwide. Mixing hobby with business is a pleasurable business but closer scrutiny will tell you whether it is more for business or more for passion and skill. At the end of the day, it's back to the latin for 'let the buyer beware' - caveat emptor

Here's a red and white bouquet done by an appreciative person whom i have introduced Air-Dry Clay to, together with some encouraging testimonial. Thanks Emmaline, it really made my day!

"you were the one who introduced me to jumping clay a few years ago :)My friend and I were visiting NLB ((National Library Board)(HQ) and you happened to have a stall recommending the benefits of air-dry clay :) I would just like to say that thanks to your recommendation, I went to buy air-dry clay subsequently and it has been an extremely rewarding experience for me.

Thank you!
