Well, I unpacked my Cricut the day I bought it, cut out two practice flowers, and then packed it back into the box and haven't touched it since. I did, however, order some supplies, which are enroute (so said the email I received).

I am going to make some polymer clay snowflake ornaments, and then I'm going to use the Cricut to personalize them. I'm making them for a friend.

Also working on making five polymer clay "people' ornaments for a friend and her daughter-in-law. I have two scuplted (they're cartoon-y) and I have to sculpt another three, then I'll cure those, along with the snowflakes.

Will post photos once they're done.

Have a great day!

The time to do this is now - not tomorrow, not next week, not next month. Now.

I made fairy doors this last weekend, and tonight I made a "plate" (or giant coaster) using the different canes that I made and had no idea what to do with.

I used up the clay that I mushed up from pieces that I made but didn't like.

I agree Dorthy!

I find that most of us have more than one interesting hobby, so it's nice to see what everyone is working on.

I know that seeing other people's work often inspires me, and reminds me of my own projects and crafts that I haven't though of in a while.

Beads! I made these over the past few months, there are about 40 in each bag. The plan was to donate them to an organization called Beads of Hope, but I don't know if they will accept them, given that there's a pandemic going around.

Will have to decide what to do with them.

I managed to make and not smush up a small fairy door yesterday. The door, the frame and the door step are done, now I have to embellish. Will post a picture when it's done.

My problem is that I've mushed up so many failed pieces that the colours are not at all vibrant. It's hard to find inspiration with the dull colours. Plus, I refuse to start something with the unopened clay until I've used up all of my mushed up dull clay. I do have a plan, though. I've decided to make a whole bunch more of the fairy doors, and this summer, when I walk the dogs, I'm going to place them on the trees along the path we use.

Once that clay is all used up, I'll move on to making something more fun (and vibrant!).

I have been stuck. I have attempted to make something with my polymer clay, many, many, many times in the past few weeks, and all I've accomplished is squishing up my work and creating new colours from squished up clay from my failed attempts.

Will keep trying.

Well, since my last post, I made another three small fairy houses. Since then, I have been "playing' with the clay, but haven't actually made anything new. I've attempted to make a larger house using a salsa jar (three times!), and ended up taking it all apart and mashing up the clay.

Will keep trying.

The time to do this is now - not tomorrow, not next week, not next month. Now.

Did some more work with polymer clay. Used some old baby jam jars that I saved after I ate the jam.







Also made tiny charms, which I brought to the office and gave to the kids who visited on Christmas eve.

So I spent the afternoon and part of the evening working on a polymer clay fairy house (my very first!), and watching season 3 of Sparticus (excellent series).

Here's a picture of the fairy house. I have to add some embellishments (foliage, flowers) before I bake it. (Sorry, it's sideways!)



Also thought that I'd add a picture of my flower fairies that I made for a friend. (I made 6, but this picture only has 4 in it).



I really enjoy working with polymer clay. I will work on Christmas decorations for my colleagues next.

Life is good!

Sally, those cards are beautiful! Are those real candy canes on there? I have to admit that my cardmaking skills are not very refined - I need to do a lot more practicing to get the beautiful clean lines you have. Thank you for sharing!

Flower fairies are finished, sealed and shipped off to my friend.

Did not work on any papercrafting (other than to make boxes for the flower fairies to ship in).

Today is icky outside (it snowed yesterday and the snow is heavy and slushy), so I think I'll sit and watch season 3 of Sparticus, and make some polymer clay Christmas ornaments to gift to my colleagues.

Have a great Sunday!

Mom's card



Brother and SIL card



Special friend's card .. just want to put holly in each of the corners, but hoping to finish it today so it can go out tomorrow



This one is being sent out from a request .. I belong to a FB page that is specifically card making .. and one of the ladies posted that her sister passed a month earlier, and her BIL is going through Chemo .. and loves handmade cards .. if we would send one .. I thought that was more than worth making another one up .. but this one .. my measurements oopsed .. and I'm going to have to make the envelope as well .. *sigh* ..



Have a happy crafty day !!!!

Finished up the flower fairies, made boxes for them, and will be shipping them out as soon as I get more bubble wrap to protect them.

I also crocheted myself a new hat, or 'tam', while I was binge watching a new series on Netflix. Kept my hands busy, so I wasn't snacking while the show was on. YAY!

I think I will work on making some Christmas cards next. Will post photos of everything later on today (when I get home).

Have a great day!

I finished up making six more Fimo flower fairies, all I have left to do is seal them, make some fancy gift boxes for them, and send them off on their merry ways. I've been scouring the internet for the perfect template for boxes, and I think I found one. I'll get started on making those tonight, after I've sealed the pieces.

I picked up a new cardmaking magazine/kit (it includes papers, two embossing folders, and stamps, plus all the instructions). I'll add this to my collection and will try to get some Christmas cards done up within the next few weeks.

Haven't decorated the house yet, and don't know if I will this year. Last year I didn't, because I had the pup, who was 1.5 years old at the time, was still hellbent on destroying everything in her path. She's 2.5 now, and isn't as destructive, but I don't know what she'll do with a tree in the house.

Have a great day all!

The time to do this is now - not tomorrow, not next week, not next month. Now.

I have been keeping busy making more flower fairies. I've made another six since the four that I burned, and will be working on making at least three more, and then I'm going to move on from Fimo for a bit.

I'm thinking of making some Christmas cards ('tis the season!).

Will have to be diligent about putting my clay tools away, and pulling out my papercrafting tools.

We shall see. I always have intentions to do something, and then put it off! (I was supposed to be working on crocheting something for someone. I bought the yarn, but haven't done anything with it because I have to dig out my crochet hooks from wherever I left them (likely in a bag in the basement) when I cleaned up.

Have a great day!

Spent a few hours yesterday making four more flower fairies. They turned out better than the first ones that I made.

Popped them into the toaster oven that I bought specifically to bake them in. Burnt them. I mean.. BURNT -- all the flowers burned to black, the leaves, the fairies themselves all have lovely deep tans.

I think I'll still varnish them and use them in my garden -- they'll be hidden, so it won't matter if they're well done!

I'll make some more over the next week, and will test the toaster oven's heat settings before I use it again. (All the tutorials warned to do this, but I didn't - my own silliness for not paying heed to these important details!)

Have a great day!

Beautiful!

Wonderful that you're doing your calligraphy again. I first learned way back in the late 70's and did it for about 5 years, and then got busy with life.

I am finding that now that I am using a computer to write things, my regular handwriting has become a mess. It's so bad that there are times when I can't even decipher what I've written.

I was telling a colleague just this past Friday that i actually did calligraphy at one time. I don't think she believed me!

Working on finding motivation to get my workspace organized. I haven't been able to do anything for months and months because I've been using the space as a dumping ground for all my 'things'.

Once the space is cleared out, I'm going to have to decide what to work on - it will either be Christmas cards, or I'll switch and try my hand at working with polymer clay.

First, I need to clear out the space!

The time to do this is now - not tomorrow, not next week, not next month. Now.
