ArtfulSeniors on Fire Spotlight #3

Got pictures of Madelyn today. Hope the sweater I ordered her is in the mail when it gets here!

Today's Artful Seniors are CastinClay and CasualCottage.

Castinclay, Marie, describes her ArtFire site: "I love to create! My medium is polymer clay. I design jewelry and create mixed media wall hangings. I hope you enjoy my creations. If you have any special requests or would like colors different than what I am offering, let me know. I will be happy to make it for you if it is possible."

and herself: "I am a self taught artist. Painting was my first love then I found polymer clay. Now I do both. I have always been creative and spend many hours in my craft room. I hope my creations make you happy."

here are two listings, one of which is a painting:

Casual cottage describes her studio:
"I have been selling on the internet since 2002. I love the cottage style and strive for that in everything that I create. Painting, especially porcelain painting, and sewing are two of my passions."

and herself:
"I am a mother of one and grandmother of 8. I work part-time (3 days a week) and devote the remainder of my time to my family and business.

You can find me on Twitter under the name CasualCottage and also visit me on my blog:

Here are two of her items:

These are called fabric yo-yos, and used for many different things. Since I am fabric craft dumb, I'll quote her here too:
"Fabric yoyos are perfect for "sew" many crafting projects. Use them for quilting or applique projects or add them to purses, totes or any project that could use a little pizzaz!"

She also paints:

I hope you will visit these guild members' studios. Have fun today!
