This is totally awesome!! If I'm going to carry a pill box I decided I really wanted to have something unique. This is a one of a kind and boosts a notably creative design. The size is perfect for what I need. The box holds quite a few pills, yet it is little enough to fit in my pocket without showing. Furthermore, it is completely comfortable. I don't even notice it. The case is made from a strong metal, and the clasp is very sturdy - a huge feature that is necessary to avoid the spilling the pills into one's pocket. It is with full confidence that I recommend this seller's products!

About

A day without creating is like a day without sunshine

I have been producing art since I was a small child. I was fortunate to have a nurturing art teacher who early on encouraged me and taught me about color combinations, perspective, and most importantly encouraged me to go with my ideas.

I am retired from the technology world. Although I love painting and handcrafting I chose to make computer science my profession. Throughout my decades of working, however, I always managed to be involved in at least one artistic endeavor.

For several decades I painted in acrylics, in an impressionistic style. I took many years of art classes and studied with well known artists. My artwork had been displayed in many solo and group shows and I am honored that my work is also in many private collections.

Several years ago, my daughter started working with polymer clay. I would visit her and we would have the best work sessions. It was so much fun, being together and creating. The rest, as they say, is history.

I love working with polymer clay and, since retiring, have added it to my repertoire of creative passions. I prefer to blend my clay colors to make them richer and more vibrant. I have taken several workshops, devoured books on both polymer clay and wire wrapping (another passion) to bring to you what you see in my shop today. I read and see new and exciting things everyday that can be done with polymer clay. I love taking that information and applying my own twist. I keep a notebook handy to jot down ideas as they come to mind.

    I do it all with a little companionship from my furry assistants: design, create, photograph, curate, list, market, ship and provide personal customer service! I make that guarantee on everything in my shop.

    I keep stuff from rolling on the floor, or sometimes help it get there!

    I like to sit on Mom's lap while she is creating.
