Beauty of the Northwest

Sharon MacLeod is an artist living in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. Her work isn’t exclusively made of polymer clay, but I find it fascinating. Sharon’s bracelets are stunning, especially the coil bracelets! I love her use of color and pattern in the designs.
Artist quote: “Working with an unlikely combination of materials, each piece starts with my own graphic art that is printed on thin paper, meticulously laminated to various sizes of small tubing, and assembled with a variety of materials, including polymer clay, glass, metal and rubber and plastic. Because of the nature of the process, no two are exactly alike. Transforming non-precious, sometimes industrial materials into colorful, richly patterned art jewelry is an ongoing exploration that keeps me fascinated.”

Subscribing To Your Favorite Blogs

I was asked by a forum friend at PCC how she can subscribe to my blog so she doesn’t miss anything. To be honest, I am so new to blogging that I had no idea what to tell her. So I asked for help from other bloggers and found a few options.
1) Google Reader – A web based reader. You just need to sign up for a free Google account.
2) Feedreader – Installs on your computer & looks like an email program. I read several good reviews on this free download. Company says you can even run it from a flash drive.
3) Mozilla Thunderbird – A good friend told me I could use it for RSS feeds and I already use for email, which makes it twice as good. 🙂 If you don’t use Thunderbird for your email already, I highly recommend it. My Outlook used to crash all the time and I’d lose everything in my inbox. Thunderbird has never crashed on me.

I’m sure there are many other options for subscribing to blogs, so do your research and find one that suits you. To help out my readers I have added the Share/Save link which appears at the end of each post.
