Member Benefits 027-3: Fun Events Contests

Polymer Clay Membership Site

Wow! This is soooooo cool! Cindy, I can hardly wait to get your beads – I’m in a slight state of shock of winning these – I always hope to win, but until now I never have … I recognize most of these beads from the tutorials. It is going to be extra great to have the ‘real’ finished product to guide me in my attempts … I still get butterflies in my stomach when I realize that I actually won this fabulous collection of beads! ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Beads

Thank you once again Cindy! I have been playing around with the idea of posting images on the internet for some time, but have been fiddling around and felt no great urge to work out how to set something up since I wanted to dedicate all my free time to polymer… then along came “Phase 3” of your bead give away contest!  I am now the proud owner of a little blog and have also learnt how to do links thanks to your helpful input. This is great fun! ~Susan-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Tutor Bead Giveaway (Phase 3)

I wouldn’t have tried the watercolour beads if it hadn’t been for the competition, and I love those now. ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Give Away

If you decide you want to become a member at Cindy’s polymer clay tutor library, it’s only $9.95 for 3 months! You get 12 brand-new videos, and even more color recipes. It’s an incredible deal. I used to wander around this blog, looking and reading, but I didn’t join. Once I finally did, though, I was so mad at myself for waiting! I missed out on a lot of tut’s that I could’ve seen for less than a buck! Anyway, at least I’m a member now, and it’s really cool. Members can participate in contests like the one going on now, where you can submit photos of your work. Cindy spotlights the photos and members are eligible to win a set of beads made by Cindy! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: CraftSmart Polymer Clay

Whoever wins this contest will be lucky indeed! As so many have said already, though, this is one of those opportunities where everyone who participated won – I can’t tell you how many times I have gone back to the photos. I am richer for having seen how my “classmates” interpreted what Cindy has given us. Thank you all. ~Elizabeth-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest

I am drooling!!!! I wish I did not have to go to my Day Job today. ~Anna-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Win Some Polymer Clay Beads

The first time I made clay beads before signing up with a membership to your videos, I just took some clay rolled it into beads, baked and buffed them a bit. I had absolutely no idea of the whole process. I made a necklace and it looked alright but when I look at it now compared to the beads I submitted to the recent bead giveaway contest, gosh – what a difference! ~Cheryl-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Crackled Ink Technique

This is so cool! Thanks Cindy! I just love this website… I feel as if I’ve joined a big polymer clay family with all the comments and advice received in your blogs! ~Hobokenmary >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest (Phase 2)

Let the fun begin. Having your beads up close and personal would be a tremendous bonus. See how you have things assembled up close would be of benefit to all who make jewelry. Tried tested methods are always the best. Looking forward to this. ~Illaya-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway

Cindy and Doug, thanks so much for taking the time to design a fun way for folks here to showcase their wonderful work. I know it takes a lot of time to get all on board with formats set and working, but, once that’s done, then it’s just a glorious picture share for all of us to oogle either here, or on Facebook. And an inspiration for us to create and challenge ourselves, which itself is a great way to show the results of learning new techniques here. I love it. ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Facebook Polymer Clay Contest

Beautiful pieces of work everyone! Can’t wait to see more pictures. Thanks Cindy for your hard work on coming up with some great tutorials. And this is such a great way to show what everyone else is doing with the tutorials. All, I can say is that I am glad to be included with this talented bunch of artists! Wishing everybody the best of luck! ~Lupe-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest

Bead Giveaway Winner: @Lupe Meter – Congratulations! You lucky gal, I have this feeling you are going to love each and every one of Cindy’s beads… *big smile* Way to go! @Cindy, thanks so much for having the contest! It got me even more excited about polymer clay and now I can’t wait to see what we get to do for the next contest…!!! @Everyone – What beautiful work you all turned in, you’ve all inspired me. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – this community of clay artists rocks and I’m so very proud to be a part of it!!! Clay On, ~Lisa-W  //  Congratulations Lupe, enjoy your prize. It was a wonderful experience with so many inspirations to keep us all moving and improving. Thanks to Cindy and Doug, you’re the BEST. ~Joyce-M  //  Congratulations Lupe  – you’re so lucky.  Please do take a photo and enjoy creating beautiful jewelery.  Congratulations to all of you who entered this contest with your beautiful creations.  We have all learned from each other and found friends. Cindy and Doug, thank you so much too for the incredible videos, teaching and sharing your time and talent. God bless everyone! ~Cheryl-H  //  Congratulations Lupe.  Want to share any of those beads? LOL. Thanks, Cindy, for a fun project. I am now motivated to try every project you teach us. Looking for another challenge. ~Loretta-C  //  WOW!!!!!!!!Lupe, congratulations!!!!!!  You must be so excited!!!!! Enjoy all of Cindy’s  beautiful creations. Now you can see right up front how everything is made. I know you will treasure them. I feel like I was a winner, too. I learned soooo much. I made four tutorials, emailed them to Cindy, got my picture up on the blog and uploaded pictures on Facebook. All of this was  for the first time. I have Cindy, Doug, and Phaedrakat to Thank!!!!!! I couldn’t have done it without them. Phaedrakat helped me so much that I feel like I’ve known her forever. A special THANKS to Phaedrakat for spending so much time helping me. This was really so much fun, seeing everyone’s work and everyone talking to each other. I love this place!!!!!!! Cindy and Doug take a deep breath and relax, plus  feel proud for all that you both have created. Thank you so much everyone. Luv Honey. ~Helen-S  //  Again, congratulations, Lupe!  I think if we are each honest with ourselves we are all just a tad jealous (as a couple of you have actually said), but at the same time we can congratulate ourselves on the growth and accomplishments that came about in us because Cindy initiated this contest.  And we can congratulate Cindy for it has been a great success.  We must each bookmark the entry page … if we ever need additional inspiration, all these wonderful entries will certainly provide it!  Thank you each and everyone! ~Carolyn-F // I don’t see a comment from Lupe yet – does she know that she’s won? If not, this is going to be a huge surprise! I’m so very happy for her, and of course I’m jealous, too. But I think she’s very deserving. Her pieces are beautiful, and she was very good about answering questions about her work. (She might have made Helen Breil a sale or two on texture plates, too.) She was also quick to complement others. I think everyone did a tremendous job – with their creations, with the compliments to each other, and by providing inspiration to all of us! Thanks Cindy and Doug, for a fabulous contest, and for an opportunity to get to know each other better through art! ~Phaedrakat // ~Various Members >> These comments were originally posted here: Polymer Clay Winner Lupe Meter

I have to say, this contest is the coolest thing ever! I’m really excited about it – I think everyone’s a winner because we all got to show off something pretty, and got tons of inspiration and pleasure from everyone else’s work. Yay!! :) ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: 42 More Polymer Clay Photo Entries

GREAT JOB Silverleaf and everyone else who has been working so hard to enter this contest. Most of all, SUPER JOB CINDY for showing all of us how this can be done. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Contest

Very cool – it’s all in one place! I’m so glad that the Facebook gallery is filling up with such beautiful pieces, too. Cindy must be so proud of what her students can do! It’s very inspirational. Congrat’s everyone! ~Phaedrakat >> This comment was originally posted here: Facebook Polymer Clay Photo Gallery

Cindy: you just pull it all together in such a brilliant way and with such apparent ease. It thrills me to part of anything you do since you really do it SO well. I am really looking forward to visiting all the “Cindy inspirated” sites! ~Susan-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Bead Giveaway Contest Entries

WOW!!! I loved the treasure hunt and I bet the Pacific Salmon color will be beautiful. ~Darinda-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Treasure Hunt Contest

What a thrill to be able to see slideshows of all your work close up! Thank you all so much for contributing! Just love this site. ~Jocelyn-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Contest

6 out of 10 for me too!….I learned something through this little quiz…so that is a good thing!! ~Kam-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Brands

Before I even came to the blog today I wondered if you would try to April Fools us. You would have to try some other trick Cindy we know better. I don’t for a minute think anyone would ever try to get rid of you either. You should of tried something like upping our fees. We all know you deserve more than what we are paying you each month. I sure would like to know what pamagela said in Italian. All fooling set aside, I for one am happy you are hooked on PC and even happier you share your love for it with all of us. April fools around my house is kind of blah now that the kids are all grown and out of the house. It used to be a watch out look and see who is going to pull the best one this year. Oh how I miss those days. All of you with young ones enjoy each and every moment and April Fools you have left. Have a happy and safe April Fools everyone. Uuuuuugggggs to all. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay April Fools
