Mystical!

Thank you for your lovely comments on my
last post. I am so enjoying myself with the clay!!

So far this is my favourite piece, followed by my Ellie 
with balloons.

The Unicorn is a Katy Sue mould.
I first used white clay and when it had dried out
then the fun began!! 

It started with Copper H20 paint.
Then black acrylic paint.
Finally, gold gilding wax.
At last I had the grungy look I wanted.
And a 'Gold Finger'!!!


The colours are better seen in RL.


Well a quick post today, as I have been working on my 
current project for 2 days and it's still not complete!

Just heared on the radio, that the UK is going to be hit with
a lot of snow, possibly next week.
They are not sure where it will be though! Lol!!

Thanks for taking time out to visit me.
You know I will always comment 
on your posts too. 
Would be rude not to!!!Lol!!

Big hugs,
Carol

Her moulds always have great detail.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!!

This is a quick post.

I would like to thank
all my lovely blogging friends from around the world,
for taking time in their busy lives,
to visit my blog and to leave me treasured messages.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a 
prosperous, healthy, peaceful  2019.

I know this picture is not Christmas related,
it is a 'Home' sign, where lots of us will be for the holiday.

It sold on it's first outing!!


All the flowers are hand made, which I really love doing.
So more rewarding than sticking my bought ones on!

Thank you so much.

Big hugs to you all,

This and That!!

Firstly, I would love to thank Julie,
who joined my blog as a follower.
I hope you enjoy what you see.

Just another quick post but lots of pictures!

I had been searching for this Woodware stamp
for ages. I found it a few weeks ago in a Craft Shop,
Noble Crafts in Great Yarmouth.
It was in a clearance box too!!

I can remember playing with this stamp
on a Demo Day at The Craft Barn.
I was in the studio with Chris Dark (an amazing artist)
over the other side of the room.

We were having great fun with the customers.
She saw this card and shouted over to me
'How on earth did you do that!!'

So this time I made 3 with different colours!
I can still hear her!!



Christmas has finally arrived here!!

It took me 41/2 hours to do all the decs.
How long does it take you!!

The little Santa on the floor, I made for my Daughter's first
 Christmas. She was 45 on the 30th November!!


The tree!!


These I made separately but they go quite well together.


Well that was supposed to be a quick post!!

Thanks for popping in and I treasure all your
lovely messages.

Big hugs,

from Noble Crafts Shop in Great Yarmouth.

in the mornings might have something to do with it!!

A Nutty Angel....Or Two or Three!!


A very quick post today.
I was at a Christmas Craft Fair yesterday, in 
The John Grant School in Caister. 

WOW!!!
It was only 4 hours but I came home with 
2 of my big storage boxes totally empty!!!

So a big thank you to Lyn, who with her team, put 
on an amazing day.

All the items below were just a few of the small
things that went.

This is my Nutty Angels decoration.
It is a real nut that I have had for years.
I have one myself but wanted to decorate this one,
in a better way than I have mine. So made the clay angels.
I then added the greenery and ribbons.


This is my Snowball Bauble!!
Made and sold loads of them. The leaves I cut from felt.
Just got 2 left.


This hanger I sold at the last Craft Fair.


I made loads of these baubles.
This was a medium size. Made with 80 pieces
of fabric and double that of sequin pins.
The big ones had over 120
pieces of fabric and over 240 pins!!!

Then added cones, berries, leaves and ribbons.



This is a small one and this was sold but have 3 small ones left.


I only have 2 small and I large Snow Family scenes left.

I am now going back to my desk to finish making 
a couple of unicorn boxes and a Unicorn plaque.
I make the Unicorns with clay.
They all flew away today!!

Then I have to paint a watercolour picture of the sea and a beach,
on a plaque. Sold out of them today!

Thank you for finding time to pop in and leave me a message.
It is so busy for us crafters at this time of year.

Big hugs,
Carol

Winter Wonderland Challenge and A ' Sorry'!!

Firstly, I must apologise for the lack of commenting.
I usually do it every day, but with the pressure of
doing 5 Craft Fayres already this month and
another on the 24th, tomorrow, I have 
a lot of stock to make for it.

It's great for my charity I support, that sales have been very good!!
But I do have a job keeping up with
the more intricate things I make.

I know......I can hear you saying, I should make more simple
things then!! Lol!!

Well this card is a simple one! The sweet image is from 
our generous sponsor for this Winter Wonderland challenge.

The sponsor is
Twinkle Lane Designs
and this image is Skater Girl and can be found here.

She is coloured with Copics and Stickles .


Along with the Girl image, you also get 3 pairs of mittens.
I coloured them with Copics and then cut them out.
Also 3 sentiments too, one of which I used.


Well it's up to you now to win a lovely prize,
from our generous Sponsor.
Just enter your card and I suggest that you 
read the challenge rules, on the Winter Wonderland blog first.

Thanks for popping in and good luck.

Big Hugs
Carol

Birthday Poppy

Just a quick post tonight.

I cannot understand why I have so many summer flowers, 
still giving a colourful display!!  Crazy!!
Even my Acer has only just started to drop a few leaves.

This card was for a friend who is in her 90s.

She loved it and I enjoyed making it.



I have my friend, who is the Daughter-in-law of the lady
who this card was for, is coming up to stay with us
for a couple of days. 
She is coming to get her highlights and haircut done! 
It will be great to see her and we will have a girly day out,
on Thursday.

Thanks for popping in and thank you for leaving me such
lovely messages. 
Hope you are enjoying this mild weather too.

Hugs,
Carol

Silver and Blue

Morning, 
and I hope you have changed all your clocks!!
Why is the oven always the hardest to do?!!

Just a quick post, as I must get back
to my desk! More items to make for my Craft Fairs.
There are so many ideas in my head but not sure if I 
have the time left to make all of them!!

This is one of my new makes.
I love Silver and pale icy blue, as they blend so well.

The huge bead hanging in the middle, I found in my stash.
One of my lovely friends, saves things for me
that she thinks I can find a use for.
This was one of 5 of them!

So thanks Aileen!! Perfect!!


Enjoy the rest of Sunday.

Thanks for your lovely messages on my last post.
Hope you are going to join us at 
Winter Wonderland challenge.

Thanks for popping in and looking 
forward to reading your kind comments.

PS: Aileen and her Mother-in-law saw this
post and ordered a wreath the same as this one!!

Big hugs,
Carol
