Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! HAPPY EASTER!

How ever you're spending this weekend, I hope you have a good one! As for me, I love an excuse to sit down and make something really cute and colourful. Not that I need an excuse (I mean, I do this all the time...) but what I mean is, I especially love a theme. I'm already thinking about Halloween!

Other than the eating extra chocolate and sweets part, Easter traditions have mostly "fizzled out" in our house. But apart from Christmas, I think it's one of my favourite themes for arts and crafts. I'm only sad I didn't get in there sooner. I've been so busy, Easter seemed to just spring up on me out of nowhere and I haven't had time to do much this year...

But I did manage to squeeze in making a polymer clay version of the much loved Easter Bunny, armed with his little basket full of bright and colourful egg gifts to be handed out! :)

Again, Happy Easter everyone!

Feel free to share your Easter arts and crafts, I would love to see what other people are making this Easter! :)

Polymer Clay Winnie The Pooh & Friends!

I know I said I would probably do a huge Etsy shop update, but I really wanted to share a couple of things I made recently that aren't listed on Etsy.

(Also, I'm sure if anyone is interested in seeing all the stuff listed in my Etsy shop, they would just head there instead, am I right? :p)

Anyway, on to the pictures!
I have to admit, I'm not necessarily a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but once I'm inspired to make something...

They are very different from the jewellery and charms I've always made, but I absolutely loved making them! So much so that I've had a complete re-think about the direction I want to take my work and my Etsy shop.

Quite a step from miniatures, charms and jewellery, these figures I made are a couple of inches tall. (And I felt like I was using up a hell of a lot of clay...!!)

Winnie The Pooh Set

Tigger Set

Piglet Set

All of them have been hand sculpted by me out of FIMO polymer clay, and oven-baked to solidity. I used tiny microbeads for Pooh and Tigger's eyes, but even they were a little bit too big for my piglets, so his are made out of clay too.

Okay so, obviously I haven't made an Eeyore yet, but I've been so busy working on getting my Etsy shop re-opened, adding more listings,  and working on custom orders, that I haven't had the chance just yet.

I look forward to completing the foursome though! :)

Back To Blogging! After a Super Long Hiatus...

It's been such a long time since I've written a blog post here, I wonder if anyone actually remembers me?

First I really want to apologize for seemingly disappearing off the face of the internet, way back in 2013.

A lot of things have changed since I last updated my blog! I've made some pretty huge changes to my work and the type of things I make, and am working on filling up my Etsy shop with a whole new style of handmade products.

Although I'm still making jewellery and charms, I feel like I've "grown up" from it a little, and my work has definitely grown with me. :)

I'll keep this short for tonight, but I think in my next post, I'm going to do a huge Etsy shop update?

Before I end it though, I want to say a big thank you to all my followers on Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, etc. who are stuck with me even throughout my absence. I'm seriously grateful to you all! <3

I look forward to bringing my blog back to life! :)
