been working on an order...

the man in the big red suit is breathing down our necks and i have been busy working on an order...they are for a lovely gal who runs 'the ugly duckling' blog/facebook. she likes to source other peoples products and promote them on her site. these little pretties will be making their way to her home for her to sell at her next fair...
each comes with its own little stand. if you didn't want to display them on a table top you could use them to hold a Christmas card in place on top of a present or pop a little piece of tinsel around their necks to hang from your tree.
and these sweeties will be available too. lovely to have on your work desk watching over you or the toy soldiers would look sweet on a boys bedroom shelf.
they will be available at the handmade expo markets just in time for Christmas.

gotta be quick

our day in the shop yesterday was wet, yet i managed to have a great day despite the rain. i guess it makes it easy when you are surrounded by pretty cushions, lovely hand made bags, collectible china and much much more... as i had my camera there i thought i better takes some photos of some of my makes that have made there way out to the shop but not been posted on here. and lucky i did as these two found a new home. they are a Nelly Pailloux patterns that i have turned into bag or phone charms. little red riding wolf and a messenger bear who was holding this message... so darn cute!! taking photos of things that sell seems to happen quite a bit, whenever i choose one of Renata's cards as my favourite it ends up being the first to sell or if i look at Linda's blog most of the photos she posts have items in them that have found new homes.
these two frames were for our 'girly' theme they are just lovely and perfect for a shelf or wall in a little girls bedroom. and i have been having oodles of fun tizzing up an Eiffel tower! i simply cant get enough of these ivory paper flowers!
well i best be off i have 4 children home today because the rain is just to extreme to venture out into and i think they might be killing each other.
please head here to see our cottage and the new face lift she has been given.
have a great week

bad blogger...

it seems like ages since i posted some of my wares so i have a load of photos to make up for it. i didn't manage to get out to the shop last week so i have a few things to take out this week. i wish my hands could keep up with the ideas that are swimming around in my head but i just cant seem to find the quality time... 3 curious children get in my way 0_o i tend to leave creating until night time, when they are alll tucked up in bed, which is not always productive as i end up feeling way too tired and unmotivated. i am waiting for that time in my life when my children are bored with me and think that i am way too uncool to hang around :)
i have been working on this little display shelf which is perfect for holding miniatures. it started out life like this... and i transformed it into this 'flea market/bohemian' style creation. i had fun using the gorgeous Japanese papers i bought from Trish, i love visiting her shop!
it is just perfect for housing a mix match of items.
this little owl needs a little 'bling' before she rests on this shelf...
i have the urge to glue gun this bird into place, it is so sweet...what do you think?
i was lucky enough to find a couple of very kitsch deer ornaments, i don't even know if i want to part with them.
this one even has a beauty spot!
a little bit more for you to swoon over...
and finally a couple of sweet cut crystal bud vases and a indulgent book all about bedrooms. what more could a girl want!?!
so there you have it, i hope to add to this stash of items before sunday. i have some great ideas for new products and i hope that tonight i get to start on them. i will give you a sneak peek if i am happy with how they turn out.
happy hump day
