Smooshers Blog Roll- Rainbows

The theme for this week's Blog Roll is Rainbows.  A rainbow appears when the sun shines through raindrops, creating a multicolored arc.  Rainbows are fleeting and hard to catch (and that pot of gold at the end is so very elusive!).  There's always been a magical feel to rainbows, and many artists, including the Polymer Clay Smooshers, feature some version of rainbows in their work.
Blue Morning Expressions made rainbows that you can wear!

Smooshers Blog Roll- Hippity Hoppity Easter's on it's Way!

The theme for this week's blog roll is Hippity Hoppity Easter's on it's Way.  It's hard to believe that next Sunday is Easter already.  When I think of Easter I think of bunnies (chocolate and the fuzzy kind), pretty Spring flowers, coloring Easter eggs, and searching for hidden Easter baskets.  Easter is also a time for gathering the family and having a big Easter dinner, after which all the kids run around outside searching for hidden Easter eggs.  You can find plenty of Easter inspired items from the Smooshers as well!
I just love this egg sculpture from ArtMakersWorlds!  This would make an adorable Easter decoration.

This Easter bunny necklace from BlueMorningExpressions would be an adorable addition to any Easter outfit!
