Back from Phoenix Comicon and Our Next Shows

Phoenix Comicon 2016

STCLV16-510x510We would like to thank each and every one of you for coming out to see us at the Phoenix Convention Center last weekend for one of our best shows ever. The good people with the Phoenix Comicon, the Phoenix Convention Center and everyone working there have really gotten things under control and it was a really smooth process for us (and you). We met so many new people and many have subscribed here.

Legos as tools!

Seriously! At my house, we are Lego nuts. The amount of Legos we have been carting around for years is almost obscene….almost.

I have several focal pieces that I’ve been holding on to for a while. The problem with this is that I have one sterling silver mermaid, one river jade carved moth, one vintage lion head belt “buckle”, you get the idea. I really want to make jewelry out of them, but I don’t want to get rid of the original. Once I use it, it’s gone.

My husband, who is a genius, came up an idea to make push molds made out of these needful things so that I could share them without losing the original. Enter legos and silicone. 🙂

That’s right! He built the boxes to hold the silicone out of Legos we had around the house! He back filled hollow spaces with clay and presto!

Pretty cool, huh?

Wait till you see what I make out of these beauties!
