In Search Of

The Art of Jewelry: Polymer Clay: Techniques, Projects, Inspiration (Lark Jewelry Books)

Friday night while watching Monk and making a Sandra McCaw cane from the book The Art of Jewelry Polymer Clay my pasta machine bit the dust. I could not figure it out it started making a noise and stopped rolling at the lowest two settings, but worked on the thinner ones. There was not way I was going to finish the cane until I got a new machine and ordering online was not an option for me since it would mean loosing almost a week of good claying with the Fourth of July weekend. I am just getting started now since I feel better and really want to tackle some of the things on my to do list.

So I looked at some of the local stores online to see what they had to offer. Every store had several of them available and I was thinking I was going to walk into one of them and have several to choose from. Boy was I wrong!

After four stores I was amazed at how many different coffee makers there are on the market to choose from. I was also amazed at the beer making choices available in each store.

So each store has some version of a beer making kit but none have pasta machines? What people make beer but not pasta? I seemed to block out the fact that I was not making any pasta here either even if I found one.

Recently on the list we were talking about how nice it would be to use your socks for dusting the floors while you walk from room to room. How was I to know that there was already a product available?

They sell this and not a pasta machine???

I was able to find some gold in my store hopping.

These peanut butter filled pretzels are great and a very hard item to find so naturally I had to get a few of them.

I found one of these in silver a few weeks ago while finishing shoping for my son’s vacation and thought how wonderful it would look covered in clay. The sticker price of $25.00 made it a no buy and yesterday I found this one ON SALE for $2.50 it was the only one they had so I had to snatch it up! All these finds and still no pasta machine what the heck?

Finally after going to the mall I was able to find one at the kitchen store. Again the major department stores have great selections online but not in the stores.

This falls under the do as I say not as I do category. Next time you need a pasta machine I recommend you check out Mona Kissel.

She will modify your existing machine or you can purchase one from her. Once hubby and son come home and my claytime is limited I think I am sending my machine to her for an upgrade :).
