Have just splurged on a few new gubbins for my polymer clay stash, can't wait to get them now!

I was reading Donna Kato's Surface Effects (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0823013626/ref=oss_product) book online and it looks really good so I bought that and another book on Polymer Clay Beads by Carol Blackburn (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0713678593/ref=oss_product). The one by Carol Blackburn arrived today and I would really recommend it, lots of easy to follow techniques and the price is verrry low!

Also bought myself a mini worktop oven, loads of inks and stamps, paints, Ranger Adirondack paint dabbers, Colorbox fluid chalks, liquid fimo, some mica clays (pearl and gold), and lots of other little bits that I was missing from my tool box like a ball stylus, mini mister, spongers and a mini grater.

Can't wait to get started now! I think my first project will be using the silver leaf I got and some transparent clay but one of the books has a pretty neat tutorial for making stripes I wanna try out too.

Just need to get rid of the man and child so I can have some peace! :D
