Hey LynnDel . . . I've missed you!!  So glad to see you've gotten stuff up
on Photopoint...just great to be able to see people's creations.

Your eggs are great, so many varieties, and I loved the dolphin splashing
in the waves.  The pens with the sculptures on top are really cute . . .
they must be a special hit with the kids too.  (I didn't see too many tops
though...you wrote the first explanation of making pen caps in the
newsgroup, didn't you? ...it's in my files).

The (pen) pointer is hilarious!!!!!  I thought of making a small one to
point out things on my website; think I'll definitely go for it after
seeing yours :-) . . .

Thanks, Sarah and Diane!

I don't know if I was the first to explain one way of making pen caps,
but was probably the first (or one of the first) to put it in
step-by-step format.  I personally don't like caps on pens  -- when I
get a pen with a cap I immediately throw the cap away (this is on
unimproved cheap pens only).  But people always ask for them, and
that's why making them seems a necessary evil.  

In addition to the nuisance of taking the cap off and putting it back
on, when the pen top has something sculpted on it, the cap can't be
stored on the end of the pen (unless by special design, as when making
a top hat with dimensions that fit the inside of the cap) and is
almost guaranteed to be lost.  At least in my world.  Maybe some of
you know about my kind of world -- a zoo zone!

One thing I learned about sculpting things at the tops of pens -- they
need armatures or you will eventually (in my world) end up with a
decapitated figure.  My pointer pen has a length of paperclip wire
inside the pointing finger.  All the animals are formed around the pen
all the way to the top of the head; they are not sitting on the top of
the pen.

Oops --  make that Sarajane that I'm thanking.  Not Sarah!

I'm so, so, SO sorry I didn't do your name right!  People do mine
wrong 78% of the time, so I know what it's like.

We're in the midst of moving, so that's why I'm online instead of
claying at the moment.  So hard to not feel guilty about claying when
there is so much (20 years since our last move) to pack -- but going
online is less obvious to the family.  For one thing, they're allowed
to eat on the table if I don't have clay on it.

I'm moving, by the way, to the Davis area, which is near Sacramento,
CA.  I wonder if that guild in the Sacramento area is still active --
anyone know?

You have my sympathy!!!   I just finished (sorta...is one
EVER finished moving???), and the best I could do was to
keep my clay out of the heat...where it went in the garage
is anyone's guess...

From Sacto to Davis (or vice versa) is just about twice the
distance I just moved, but it was just as insane as when I
drove from Sacto to Illinois.  Cudos to you for just
surviving it!

That's disappointing.  I think there used to be one in Sacramento.  It
must've died out for one reason or another.  Thanks for looking up the
info!

LynnDel,

Based on the info at the National guild's site, the closest regional guilds
to Davis would be the South Bay PCG (they meet in San Jose) or the
Fresno/Central Valley PCG (they meet in Fresno). Both are far away, I'm
afraid. Perhaps you can get one going in your area?

LynnDel,

Don't give up!  Checking my National Polymer Clay Guild membership book, I
see at least 4 members in Sacramento;  there are others in Chico, Meridian,
Roseville, and Newcastle --zipcodes on either side.

 I live near Auburn, about 30 miles up hill from Sacramento. I
posted on the NPCG's "members seeking guilds" web page and have
had a few responses. There were 9 of us at our last get together
in Auburn. If was a very informal 3 hour studio time. We are
getting together again in August.It will be in Rocklin ( about 20
miles east of Sacramento ). Email me if you'd like more
information. Thanks V.R. James
