Today I entered 6 categories and got prizes in 5! Yay!!
There were some lovely flowers, vegetables, crafts, baking and floral art and the childrens section had great collections of seeds, wild flowers, herbs, mini-gardens and vegetable animals!! Chewbacca makes a winning gingerbread character…
a handfull of new brooches in jolly bright colours have just been added to the wee planetaye Folksy shop – away and stop by for a browse 😉
Been busy making loads of these big fellahs for a wee while now and only recently finished turning some of them into necklaces. A couple are already being worn about town and one has even been away to the Carribean!
So two more are ready now and listed today on the wee folksy shop
Here are the latest six goodies planetaye has put onto the wee Folksy shop. Pretty peg faeries all got up in their party wings and lotsa jolly pens to practise the old snail-mail thank-you letters, hope you like…
In the spirit of ‘reduce (renew), reuse, recycle’ I have decided to make a dent in my collected craft bits. So here’s the result of one evening. With the added benefit of pages of wee birdies appearing in my sketchbook. There will be more… (I’ll have them available on my stall at Gt Budworth Craft Fair)
Here is a wee glimpse of what I get up to, in those moments in betweeen snooping for a real job and looking at The Daily Squee! Buttons, magnets, mirrors and some odd uncatogorised thingies. Polymer clay is my friend (apart from days when it all ends up as a grey lump – although this is still useful…?) Get thee to the wee shop for some of these and others.
Latest occupation has turned out to be… painting, little flowers in acrylics. These above are NOT FINISHED yet.
That’s gonna be difficult, making the last brush stroke, the final fiddle, the definitive dab. And what do I do with them? I feel an online gallery coming on, selling a little part of me might be a wrench but I’ll cope, not selling them may be worse.
The flowers in these paintings are based on my own photographs, oddly I expected to refer much more to the originals but that need seems to wear off once the board or canvas is sufficiently covered in paint. They are taking on a life of their own.
