I don’t know about where you are, but here in Kingsville Ontario, which touts itself as the most southerly town in Canada, the snow is up to my knees. The wind is howling and blowing snow about with a vengeance I almost take personally. At this time of year when my gardening activities are confined to the indoors I take solace in my indoor fairy garden adventures.
Lately I’ve discovered polymer clay and I am enjoying a return to my youth happily kneading and forming little objects to fit in my little fairy gardens tucked into my indoor plants. Its surprisingly calming. I’ve made a little work station of my keyboard drawer and fiddle with the clay while I catch up on my mail and social sites.
Lets face it, I’ll never be the artist some are in this medium. Thats ok. I’ve managed to make a few little things that please me none the less.Fairy doors and gnomes and even cutesy fairies.
A bit of clay, a few simple tools and a few Youtube videos got me started – but I have to admit to buying a clay machine ( to soften and condition the clay) and a lot more clay shortly after my first sojourn into this fun and easy play activity for almost grownups:)
