Happy 2011 and hit the SALES!!

OK, hit my sale!
Just finished putting my festive decorative danglies into a sale folder on the lil’ folksy shop. They are all down in price by 45%. If you are really organised then start this years festive season off a few months in advance.
Now I can begin this years makes… lots of drawings so far and a one wee celebration cake to make for the end of the month. I sold out of  the tiny seasonal cakes just before xmas – that was a nice feeling.

Ready for winter high tea and sitting on a frilled pale blue doily. Full of currants and cherries, a generous layer of golden marzipan iced with a snowdrift of royal icing. I couldn’t resist cutting myself a slice.
Presented on a wooden board, finished with a wee sprig of holly and a few crumbs left for any passing mousie!

skull 'n' crossbones buttonsHaving missed ‘Talk Like a Pirate Day! I decided  to make up for my lack of ha-harring and walking the plank with…
skull ‘n’ crossbones buttons.
They coulda come right off the threadbare waistcoat o’ Jack Sparrow hisel.
Yaaarrr!

big button = 28mm approx.
wee button = 18mm approx.
(the other one is a fridge magnet)

3 tier mini cake

mini cake mini cake mini cake

My latest tryouts for polymer clay designs have resulted in a few more round things. It must be that way my hands work or something… anyway above is a wee tester wedding cake. It is built on a tinfoil armature and has no finished base as yet but was a reasonable first attempt. Less than 2 inches high/diameter so not as tiny as those you see for dolls houses but I was aiming more for the “keepsake of your special day” kinda thing.

Below you can see a trio of (gold)fishy mirrors… not to scale – ha ha! Shown a wee bit bigger than life size here.
Nearly fiinished and ready for the planetaye shop in a day or two – hooray!

All Things Lime…a Folksy Friday

Although I spend a lot of time blundering about webby spaces I very rarely know what’s going on. (“That sounds like you” – the audience) I had no idea what a Folksy Friday was until yesterday …a Thumbthing Thursday?
Well I know now ‘cos one of my little handmade products has been included in a Folksy Friday collection. Many thanks to Anna Hamilton-Gunn.
Nip off to the Lime Garden to have a look – the Folksy Friday lime collection

lime buttons - set of 6But what was featured? ah – my set of tiny swirly buttons –  so if you fancy adding a cocktail punch to your usual LBD click off to the planetaye shop.

Caipirinhas all round I think!

out the oven – works in progress

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.

meet my new FOLKSY shop

At last I have taken the plunge and opened a wee Folksy online shop.
You can find me here planetaye.folksy.com.

So far I have 4 items in my shop but this will increase (daily?) as I finish off my recent creative burst! All the polishing and buffing is good for the muscles in one arm!
Magnets, badges and dangly dough hearts – not a bad start. 😉
