Who does cute polymer clay stuff?

I got paid today from my blogging..I went out on a limb and bought myself a HUGE lot of polymer baking clay with a ton of tools and a brand new toaster oven to bake them.  After a lot of research, that was the best thing to do unless I want my food we eat to taste like it LOL Christmas is gonna be done with before I know it and since I wont be doing ornaments I need something else to occupy my time for the next 8 months.

ANYWAYS- My question is, do any of you make polymer clay earrings and such? I plan to make stuff like this:

If you make this kind of stuff, can you share pictures?

I have made some small things like that, but no pictures on this computer. I made Yo Gabba Gabba charms, a llama, and some other small stuff. I know it's in this group somewhere, but I couldn't tell you how long it's been since I played with mine.

No, it's like playing with playdoh, except you get to keep and use what you make.

I used to make monsters with colored type clay back in high school.

I love that stuff and there's a huge market for kawaii food items, but it's a fairly saturated market at this point. :) But if your have epic photos and great product you could def get your foot in the door with it!

I just joined this group, due largely to your post coming up from a search on "polymer clay". I am actually a producing poly artist (remembering producing is subjective, for me, meaning I sell my work actively). I'd be happy to give what help I can, you can see my work in my facebook page, given that I am just now coming back to CM after a long hiatus. I haven't updated my photos as of this post though I plan to do some of that tonight. Anyway, my work is different, but a lot of info is applicable across the board for working with it. :) Anyway, drop me a line, and I will check back here. In the meantime, message me for my facebook link.

*I edited this post after reviewing the guidelines and realizing I had accidentally linked against the rules, since my facebook page for my business is where my pics all were. I have taken the past hour to update and place at least some of my work photos here from my profile. I hope I have not offendedanyone.Thanks*

Take care, and here's an idea of what I do..

I'm thinking about getting into making stuff with polymer clay. I want some of those cute looking cover thingys for my crochet hooks & don't know anyone who makes them, or where to really find them.

I would love to see an example of the covers for the crochet hooks if you can post a pic, since I am not sure what you are referring to. :) I am out of my depth with anything fabric related, beyond sewing basics.. lol :)
