Thursday was Fimo day and i made myself a new pair of Christmas earrings to wear at work (I like to wear a different pair each week in the run up to Christmas)

Gingerbread men! i used a small teddy cookie cutter and chopped the ears off to make them gingerbread men (as i could not find a gingerbread man cutter that small) I was meant to wear these this week coming but i could not wait to wear these so instead of my candy cane earrings which i was planning to wear the last few days i wore these.

I also managed to make my Christmas bracelet (finally!) it even has bells on. Christmas Pudding, Christmas cake, Yule log, Snowflake, Holly and a Candy cane with appropriately coloured buttons too!

Here is the latest batch of decorations I have been working on.

For the Bell, Bauble, Heart and Snowman I used a template from Mollie Makes magazine, and also took inspiration for the embellishments from the magazine. So much fun!

I have also made my Christmas cards for this year (finally!). Now I just need to work on these gift tags....

Busy busy

First of I've made some Christmas pudding decorations from felt.

Then some hearts!

Then ordered some more buttons from Blooming Felt and LovePaperfish. I love Buttons!

And then ready to wear at work I have made some Christmas Pudding earrings out of fimo! also have a few more that will go on my Christmas Charm bracelet.

Today I plan on making more felt hearts with my new buttons and hopefully make a start on this Robin lino cut that I want to do for my Christmas cards.

Getting ready for...

...Christmas! I have been super inspired by Craftseller magazine and the Prima Christmas makes magazine, So i went shopping and bought some stuff:

Not sure what this lot will turn into, either Christmas cards, decorations or jewellery, i don't know! i have so many ideas buzzing around in my head, i haven't been this inspired for ages! Might get some more felt tomorrow before work...

Yay finally have gotten around to caving a pumpkin this year. I haven't done one for at least two years, and i enjoyed it greatly, the smell, and the feel of the seeds tis great! Heres a piccy:

Quite small, grown at my mothers allotment and carved by me! I love Halloween :)

Female peacock

I was really inspired to paint with acrylics and i thought this peacock would be a fine subject.

100% acrylics and some green iridescent paint to give the feather the 'shimmer' and i painted this mostly with a 3mm flat as i had discovered once i had set my painting area up that my size 1 was knackered  and that's my favourite brush to paint with!

I am pleased with the end result of this and am eager to do some more acrylics once i replace my size 1!

New stuffs!

Finally got round to making all the recent fimo into jewellery today and photographed. Here are a few pieces that i am pleased with:

These are my favourite cakes ever! i love how these turned out, they did take quite a while to make but so so pleased with the result.
This i had been planning for a while i just never had the motivation to do it. I do have another Halloween bracelet that is purple and green but i feel its not finished yet.
Yay, these are so cute!
I work in an art shop and i am an artist so i thought it was only fitting i make some paint palette earrings to wear at work :)

More Halloween

Today's jobs started with varnishing all the fimo i have made recently and then gluing the metal bits in as well, both jobs i dislike very much.

 My device for letting beads dry, i call it the bead washing line lol
My new Halloween cake i made yesterday and baked today. Its Glow in the Dark and has a spider web decoration :D

Next job is to assemble all the charms and beads in to bracelets and then i can decide if i need to make any more.

Progress so far with the Halloween fimo:

Still to do:
Another cake to make, glue the metal bits in and varnishing everything, then assemble into bracelets. I wish my headache would go away....
