6 new polymer clay plants

A wee sneaky peek at some of the wee, tiny things I’m putting in the craft cabinet at The Brindley this weekend. I’m really pleased how these turned out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

knitting, crochet and decoupage

After treating myself to a nice book (100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet) I found it difficult to stop. But I also had to get a wee encyclopedia of crochetย  since I’m still a novice with the single needle. I have tied the primroses into a wee posy that sits neatly inside a new Ikea shot glass, the shamrock and thistle are single testers and I did already have some appropriate colours handy. Overall pretty pleased with making flowers and can sit watching telly whilst getting on with a few leaves.
The hinged frame is covered with a set of floral stamps, I really should give it an other coat or two of varnish but one will do for now I think. Patience is not my strong suit when it comes to watching paint dry!

hearts ‘n’ flowery season

sweet heart Card

Yup, the next card and pressie time of year is nearly upon us so… I though I should make good use of a valentinie replicake photy by turning it into a card.

It is available to buy at Redbubble.

Some of the matching heartshaped cakes are still available in the wee planetaye Folksy shop.

polymer clay covered pens – first go

After a couple of false starts with melting and “exploding” varieties of pen I finally found that the local Pound Shop had the right stuff. So all the back to school displays can be worth having a look through!
And I have to say I am now hooked. Yes, I know every new method or technique that I master (or at the very least enjoy and have a little success with) become my obsession, for a while.
These are my first 9 plain Bic stick pens, finished. Jolly! Now I am off to get some more done in a more organised fashion and hopefully they will be in my online shop(s) soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Frodsham Crafty stall

Here is my stall all set up and rarin’ to go. Actually by the time I took the photy I had sold 2 wee bags of mixed badges, a tiny lemon meringue pie and a chick’n’pie!
A fairly good day with a steady stream of visitors as the building is right on a main street.
