Thank you, Dawn! Don't forget dogs are also man's best friend. I love dog, I got a page on my dogs, http://www.garieinternational.com.sg/art/Friends/bestfriends.htm Talking about dogs are man's there is an interesting article posted by Jennifer, on Modern Man Forum, "Why are dogs man's best friend?" I know men who won't shed a tear when a parent dies, yet will cry when their dogs die. I know men who say, "If you don't like my dog, you don't like me!" And other men, when forced to choose between a woman and a dog -- well, the dog was very happy. There is a fierce loyalty between men and their dogs. Why? I'd like to know!

Hello,

You can also use the Watering can as a Small aquarium, which will benefit the 'Bear Scuba', and amused us with tiny fishes swimming in it, making the watering can even more interesting. Also, any excess water can be pour into your flower vase or indoor plant.

Thanks,

I guess you could say I am an artist. Although I have seen artists with much more talent right here in this forum. PolymerCafe magazine published one of my figures last year and the local museum has asked me to give them a few pieces for an exhibit sometime this year. I enjoy making figures most of all. I used to paint also but when I get a bit of clay in my hands I forget all about painting. Nothing gives me more enjoyment than playing with clay. I love being able to speak to people like you who share the fun of clay. It is a great and generous comunity of artist who share their knowledge and their finished projects with all of us. Thanks for being interested in who I am. Audrey      Options  Reply

Hi, You need lots of patience with the Cane Animals, cane texture makes the animal even more interesting. Those kids on my site are my young students, I am teaching Creative Play Clay Classes in Singapore, teaching kids from all races, Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian, Irish, Japanese, Indonesian, English, and others. When they are in my classes they are my children. I am constantly creating new idea, so that they will get to play with it , motivating their motor skill and creative thinking.

Garie, That article is inspiring. I have found working with polymer clay is very therapeutic for me. Just as you say, when I have a stressful day I look forward to coming home and "playing around" with my clay. My family knows this too and they support my clay addiction. I always enjoy seeing your latest projects with your kids. I have my grandchildren that live next door to me and they love to play clay with grandma too. I imagine that their memories of me will often include pc!

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate your comments. Yes after teaching hundreds of children, it help them in their school works and their studies. It also helps them to unwind as there are too many homeworks to do from our local schools. Anyway, if you need my help or answer any question, you can always contact me.
