A joint venture

If you are a regular reader of my blog you will probably remember the cupcake case tea light holders i’ve been making. I’ve got a joint venture with a very talented friend (Jan) who has transformed the ceramic cases into pin cushions, isn’t she clever. This is the first batch, some are listed in my folksy and NOTHS shops.
More coming soon.

A ring vase

I'm so excited, I've finally got some finished versions of this ring vase. This one is now available in my folksy shop.

Don't the pink flowers just make you think of summer...or Hawaii?!?

Preparing for the Christmas rush

Here are the cupcake holders i got out of the kiln earlier this week. I've been testing out muffin cases too but prefer the cupcake ones.

This time of year i often find i'm having one mad rush after another. Usually after nearly selling out of xmas decorations at every show i spend every night of the next week making more, this year i'm trying to prepare for the Christmas rush. This is this years design, more contemporary than last years trees.

I've also got a top tip of how to dry them flat, place them in between dry plaster, it will absorb the moisture and dry them out quickly too, great when you've got limited time.

I also experimented making some buttons, these are them. I've not put any in my shops yet as i'm still deciding what to do with them. I might sew some on my pots, not sure yet.

My new shop

My new shop has been launched. I've finally joined Not on The High Street .com. Check out my shop here . I've still got my other shops and will be adding more items over the next few weeks.

Here is a quick preview of what is in my NOTHS shop. It's a great site with loads of products to choose from, just remember they're not all handmade so look carefully if you want something that is.
