Flower Crazy…

After working at the Stitch and Creative Crafts show this weekend, I am now the owner of our demonstration model of the Sizzix Big Shot! I love playing with all of the textures and shapes it can cut and have ordered a crease mat and some box cutting dies, as well as other “useful” shapes so I can integrate felt die cuts into my work, but also creative useful packaging, for instance I haven’t got boxes that will fit bangles. So at the minute I have a pinwheel die and also flower shapes so I made these this morning with some scrap felt!

I also thought I’d share with you a recent purchase at an antiques shop. We went and bought a wine rack to replace our ugly drinks cabinet and I also came away with these lovely paintings for my office for £10 each!

I was also on the Etsy front page on Saturday night with my lace bangle 🙂 I seem to have misplaced the screen grab I took when I saw it, but I do subscribe to Statsy fortunately so you can see it here… http://statsy.org/featurator_view.php?date=2010-09-18+13%3A30

Make 50: Week 15 and 16

Since I fell a little behind with my makes, here is last week’s and this week’s together in a single blog post 🙂

Week 15 saw me making a heck of a lot of wool flowers, then wrapping the stems with floral tape… A bit different for me, but there again so were the sock zombies 🙂

And then this week I have been making samples for Kathleen and Lily’s, they wanted some brooches as their shop has a vintage theme, and I thought the resin piece was a bit bland on it’s own so I jujed (is that how Gok would spell it?) it up a little. Sending it to them today, I hope it is approved! Let me know if you think I should make some of these for my website, do you like them?
