Wahoo! Last day of NaBloPoMo!

This is it, my last compulsory post, I have successfully blogged every day of November and completed NaBloPoMo! I will still be blogging, but it will be more meaningful, and on a less frequent basis, back to 2-3 post a week I think! I’m feeling poorly and miserable, but the craft fair today really cheered […]

Interview with… Pips Jewellery

  Pippa’s work is really amazing. She uses polymer clay and can imitate other materials and create intricate designs, all with one simple ingredient and her imagination and skill. I want to have a custom order made, but there’s so much to choose from, I haven’t yet decided what I want!   Who are you […]

Folksy Angels and new presentation

I uploaded my first of a possible two entries into the Folksy Angels competition I mentioned earlier on this month. I made resin tealight holders with pieces of chocolate coin foil embedded inside. Sanding the inside of these was a bitch though, I won’t be making more of these in a hurry! The other possible […]

Top-up stock

Kathleen and Lily’s let me know that they have sold 7 items in their shop, and want more stock for the Christmas shoppers, so today I’ve been working on replacement goods. I’m so pleased that things have been selling well in the little over a month that they have been on sale there. Here’s a […]

I’m a bit stressed out at the moment. I’ve got pieces to make as prep for my We Make Christmas demonstration (6th December), and also to choose what to have in my showcase there and the lesson plan itself, as well as duplicating items so I have plenty to sell when I get there. Next […]

Present for Grandma

My grandma moved into her new flat this weekend, and out of her window she can see a field where people can keep their horses for grazing. She loves to watch them, so this gave me an idea for Christmas! I found this lovely print on Etsy and come pay day, it will be mine […]

Spotlight on… The Rainbow Room

I found this shop when browsing Flickr and, wow, this felt is colourful! She creates pins, hair accessories and even felted soaps, which I must admit was what drew me in, and what I was going to post about until I saw this card! It’s a print of some original work, which must have taken […]

Custom order work in progress…

I’ve been making a tinfoil heart necklace for ITSABEE1 on Folksy as a custom order as there is a story behind the foil and she wants it as a keepsake. Unfortunately I got some nasty veins on the back of the piece making it look dirty from the front. To solve this problem, I got […]
