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.

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.

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.

first fruit :: teeny iced xmas cake

Hello mini foodies! my latest creation. They seem to be getting smaller, but the photography is a little better I think.

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!

craft fair stall

My first go at a craft fair in nearly 30 years. … never! …surely not! I hear you cry.  No, really, but way back then I was knitting like a wee demon and sewing little felt toys. Somewhere there are photys of my stalls at the Grassmarket (Edinburgh), so I’ll have to dig them out and scan.

But back to yesterday and Great Budworth Craft and Gift fair. Held in the village church, with ‘tables’ neatly constructed over 3 pew backs and 40 odd stall holders it attracted a non-stop flow of interested visitors. A good day and raised a lot of money for the Great Budworth committee.  So here are some photys of my stall and the goodies thereupon.  Many of these will soon be going onto my wee folksy shop – go on, give the photys a click and see the items in detail.

They coulda come right off the threadbare waistcoat o’ Jack Sparrow hisel.
Yaaarrr!

wee button = 18mm approx.

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!
