New Friendly Plastic Video - Image Tranfers

Here is the latest in the series of Friendly Plastic Videos. So many have asked how to place images onto Friendly Plastic sticks.

The sticks are very different than the pellets and as a result require a different technique. My goal was to come up with one that is simple and fool proof. I've used these types of transfers before with polymer clay and they work beautifully as well....



If you've discovered a transfer technique for Friendly Plastic we want to hear from you! So contact us via email or leaving a comment on the blog.

You're never to old to play dress up!

When you are a little girl.....you want to be big, you can't wait to grow up.....and then when you get older...you'd give anything to be younger again!
There was a time when I thought I was too big to play dress up .....or play with dollies.....but not anymore!
My room at Aunt Molly's is fit for a princess....the soft bed makes you feel like you're floating on a pillow of clouds.....and the room is decorated with vintage pictures and hats......
While Aunt Molly was getting ready for the day ...... My Mom and I played dress up....trying on all the Hat's and taking pictures. We had so much fun!
I treasure the time I have had with my mother and family. I haven't had this much quality time with her in such a long time! It feels so good to mom's little girl. And what great memories I'll have for the rest of my life!
Aunt Molly liked this picture so well, we're having a tea party Sunday afternoon. All the girls in the family are going to dress in vintage clothing and have tea in the back yard. You KNOW there will be lots of pictures taken.....and what great memories too!!!

A tribute to the life of My Uncle Jim Wayant


Thank you for all the condolences I've received on behalf of my Uncle Jim. It means alot to our family and to Aunt Molly and I to know how much he was "loved and admired by all"!

There was around 300 hundred that attended the Memorial and celebration of his life yesterday afternoon in my Aunt Molly's back yard. The concensus of everyone in attendance was that it as the "happiest" funeral that they ever attended and I couldn't agree more. Yes, we grieved and tears flowed.....but with the beauty of the surroundings and the hope of a ressurection to everlasting life back to earth that the Bible promises brought us comfort and peace. And we know that he is just in a sleep like state waiting the ressurection.

For friends and family that were not able to attend - below are a few pictures and the words to music that Uncle Jim loved so much and the hope he had....

James Jerome Wayant was born May 25, 1935 in St. Louis Missouri to parents Andrew and Annett Wayant who preceded him in death. Jim had three siblings, Andrew - aka 'Junior who als has also passed away, Mary and brother Bob.

Jim passed away on April 25, 2009 in his home surrounded by his family after a long illness.

He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Marlene "Molly" along with his son, Scott and Wife, Barbara, and Son Chad, Sister Mary and Brother Bob along with Grandson's, Nieces and Nephews.



Uncle Jim was always known for his 55 Red Ford Truck and belonged to the Valley Cruisers Car Club. He is remembered by his nieces as nephews for his smile, warmth and endless teasing. Uncle Jim was very much a people person and loved to go shopping with us. He would sit on a bench for hours and meet and talk to people. He loved going to DisneyLand with us and many of my fond memories are of him taking us on rides - especially the tea cup ride. He was truly a kid at heart. He will be greatly missed.

Jim was a member of the Hemet East Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. His memorial service was officiated by Bob Clark.

Below are the Lyrics to the song... "Would You Like to Live Forever" - I wish I knew who the writer is...

video


Would you like to live forever,
In a paradise on earth?
Where every man would be your brother,
What would such a world be worth?
Would you be willing to give up,
All your bombs, your swords, your guns?
And beat them all to plowshears.
And let the kingdom come?
Would you like to live forever,
Strange though it may seem?
It's time to call the meek together,
And it's really not a dream,
Would you like to see the sunrise,
On a clean and redeemed earth?
And no more sickness, no more tears filled lives,
Oh what would such a world be worth?
Would you be willing to do without,
Your factories, freeways, slot machines?
And like the wolf lie down with the lamb,
If you know just what I mean.
Oh would you like to live forever?
Strange though it may seem.
It's time to call the meek together
And it's really not a dream.
Yes would you like to live forever,
In a paradise on earth?
And if you'd like to live forever,
What would such a world be worth?

So to Uncle Jim....Rest in peace - Until we meet again in paradise.!
