Note to my readers: Mahalo.com is "the world's first human powered search engine" -- they hand-write topic pages to create high-quality, spam-free results. I opted to write my entry for their iPhone Contest about -- what else? -- polymer clay. If you really hurry, you can get your own entry in (deadline's midnight 7/13, Pacific Time). Or feel free to comment on my entry -- what links do you think should be included in a one-page polymer clay primer?
