Has anyone seen those tv ads where the Canadian Olympic Athletes are running around thanking everyone for their sponsorship? They're at the library, whispering through the stacks; they're tapping on the window of a patisserie; figure skaters are hugging a farmer; the luger rolls out from under a car and gives the mechanic a thumbs up...
That's what I've felt like since I posted on my birthday... except instead of saying, "Thank you, Canada" I'm saying, "Thank you, blogosphere!" You bloggers are all so sweet. Please, just picture me waving to you all through windows, hugging you while you're at the checkout, giving you the thumbs up at your LYS.
If I could, I would have shared that chocolate cake with all of you. Perhaps I'll just post the recipe instead. It's really easy and it's nice and moist; there's cake mix involved, I do believe. I've never made it but I do have the recipe on hand just in case!

Lessons about working with FIMO - don't bake it in your toaster oven. The element is a little too close to the clay and those cute little sheep you modelled after Sandy's sheep, the happy little bluebirds and yes, even the wee ice cream cones will all end up looking like they were the victims of a house fire.
Thank goodness I hadn't used all the clay.
Does anyone have any hints for me about FIMO?
