Happy New Year!

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 1, 2016, 12:31 PM


Happy 2016!

I have been begun several new projects in 2015 that will continue into the new year. It is exciting!

I was contacted by Faerie Magazine and now offer dragon eggs and other fantasy type items through them. Here is a link if you'd like to check it out Dragon Eggs
 
Dragon Eggs by MandarinMoon

I am also going to teach again in the Polymer Clay Adventure Retreat. It is a year of video tutorials from some well known polymer clay artists and more! If interested in learning more about this opportunity click here bit.ly/ChrisK2016

From January 1, 2016 through January 8, 2016 I am offering a FREE Gift with PURCHASE for anyone that joins through my link bit.ly/ChrisK2016
The free gift is a pendant similar to the ones below that I call Poseidon's Treasure. They feature a beautiful glass cabochon in the center.

Poseidon's Treasure Polymer Clay Pendants by MandarinMoon

I have a new camera that I am really excited about. I hope that the quality of my photos improve! In fact, I took the photo of the pendant above with the new camera. What do you think? It seems to capture the colors accurately and I don't have to fiddle with it to correct the colors. Thank heavens!
 
I am designing bottles for a company which is really exciting. Everything is hush hush right now but I will share info and soon as the designs are released.

I just recently had a run in with a truly crazy person that harassed me and tried to bully me into giving her a pendant she did not buy. I don't like people that try to badger someone into getting want they want. Don't reward the bullies!

In other news :) I am part of a design team for Polymer Clay TV and will be offering free tutorials of projects using their products. I'll give you links as soon as I begin posting them.

Oh! I have been featured a few times in my favorite polymer clay magazine called The Polymer Arts
It is a truly beautiful magazine available online and in print AND I may be featured in an upcoming book they will publish soon. Woohoo! :woohoo:

Well, I guess that's all the news I have for now. :) I hope you have a wonderful new year!

Two New Poseidon's Treasure Pendants by MandarinMoon
Two New Poseidon's Treasure Pendants

Made a couple of new pendants in my Poseidon's Treasure series. I played around with new shapes and a new color. What do you think of the blue patina and silver? What do you think of the diamond shape? I would love to hear your feedback!

I am listing them for sale in my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/MandarinMoon

and I am offering my deviantART friends a discount coupon that you can use on anything in my shop including these new pendants! Just use coupon code VIP20 at time of purchase.

How would you like to get one of your own as a FREE with purchase gift? Click here bit.ly/FreeGiftwithPurchase201…

Added a few more to my group of pendants that I call "Poseidon's Treasure". They are all made of polymer clay with various glass cabs. What do you think about the champagne silver one? I rather like it. :D

I've just spent my after late dinner siesta perusing through your work and remembering how incredibly productive you were 5 years ago...and you seem to have been even more fantastically productive since! Puts the rest of us mere mortals to shame it does. *slumps away...spirit broken* :D

We don't say 'awesome' over here (well the kids do sometimes), so I'll just say "Jolly spiffing gallery you still have, Chris!" ('awesome' is what I really meant to say though).

Hello there fantastic stranger. :) Here to spread the positive vibes. <3
Being positive is great. :)
From riding a roller coaster to just eating a snack you enjoy, smiling, laughing, or spreading the love, we've all been positive at least once in our lives.
And today,
I want your life to be positive.
I hope you'll have a dream tonight about doing your favorite things, be it being with loved ones, watching a new season of your favorite show, anything really.
Because you deserve all of the happiness in the world. You are amazing, you are great, you are loved and worth it. Never forget that. <3
But most of all, I want YOU
-that's right, you-
To have a positive and wonderful day. <3

:hug: Lots of love. <3

Cordially, CelineDGD,
Happy Helper of the Happy-Squad
