Exploring Seward Alaska ~

Last week we had family visiting so we took a little trip to Seward, Alaska.

We stayed at Miller's Landing which is at the end of the road,
past the downtown area, right on the beach.
We rented this little cabin for the family &
we stayed in next door in our Aliner.
Love our little cozy Aliner!

My Sweet William at the harbor.

Playing with the kelp on the beach!

Beautiful Resurrection Bay.

My sister & I.  Can you tell we're related?

Polymer Clay Artist ~ Karen Ottenbreit

A month ago while participating at the
Alaska Bead & Gem Show
my booth was next to artist Karen Ottenbreit.

She's an amazing polymer clay artist!

At the end of the show she gifted me one of these beautiful glasses.
It's a generous sized glass with polymer clay embellishments
& swarovski crystals.

It looks too pretty to use however
 Karen said they are very durable~
even dishwasher safe!

I had a little dinner party & the guest of honor
was served iced tea in this glass.
Everyone loved it  & wanted to use the special, sparkly, glass!

I guess I know what to get friends for holiday gifts!

 Check out her web site & blog!
