Many of you already know of my love for Broadway musicals, with The Phantom of the Opera being the one that has always had a place closest to my heart. In January when I heard the news that the Las Vegas version of the show would be closing, I knew I had to be there for the finale. So, after seven months of planning and saving for this special vacation, the time finally came!

What an amazing trip, I had the time of my life! Not only was it an honor to be there to experience this magnificent cast and crew's final few performances, it also was special to finally meet so many talented "Phans" in person that I had only known online. We all had so much fun, despite it being a bittersweet time with the show coming to a close after 6 years.

One of the highlights was "Costume Night", with many Phans coming to the show in their fantastic replica costumes! The photo above was taken with one of the Phans in costume, Lindsey from Phantom on a Budget. (Check out her Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/potobudget if you'd like to see more of her great costume and makeup work!)

It was a much needed time away from custom orders, and now I'm geared up to get back to my clay, feeling freshly inspired!

Hope this finds you all well, and enjoying the end of summer!

I was very tight on time this last month, so only was able to make one bird for September's Bird of the Month, which is the White Capped Pionus! I had hoped to create a few more pieces, but this species is one of the more time consuming birds to create, with many different colors, so in the end I only was able to make one.

This beaded necklace/earring set is on auction for the next 5 days on eBay, ending on Thursday! In addition, there are a few other necklaces on eBay this week. One is a new "Serendipity" pendant on eBay, this time in a pretty mix of maroon, red, white and blue, with ribbon cord necklace. There is also a cute Umbrella Cockatoo necklace. All of this month's auctions are on eBay for the next 5 days on eBay.

This month I have a necklace, earring and bracelet set that is very different than any others I've made before! I sculpted a bird (the species is up to your imagination!) with matching oval beads, from black clay and coated with antique copper and silver metallic pigments. The disc beads were then linked together with copper toned wires. The bird is adorned with some glass beads and a small clay charm that says LOVE. Matching earrings and a bracelet are included.

This set is so striking in person, and while the beads might look like metal, the clay is very lightweight, so it is easy to wear. If someone doesn't snap this set up, I'm thinking of keeping it for myself! :)

There are also two "Flights of Fancy" pendants on eBay this week, which resemble Blue and Green Quakers, but they could be other birds, it's up to your imagination! All of this month's creations are on auction for the next 5 days on eBay, ending on Thursday the 13th!
