A million Rainbows later........

Been working, working, working!!! I have not quite made a million rainbows but lots and lots of lovely new goodies, all of which are now available in my Etsy shop.
I have redesigned the I - Pod classic cozie, which is now lined in hot pink felt and comes with a special little polymer clay rainbow button - all handmade by moi : )

A cute little A6 sketchbook with an inspiring rainbow cover.

The new rainbow plushie which is just so super cute & squishy you won’t want to let him go. He is sure to bring lots of rainbow happiness : )

And these funky little rainbow decorations which can be hung wherever you fancy - even have that thingymas in mind - but oh........ it's a bit soon to talk about that!

Rainbows & Buttons

Been busy making lots of these lovely Rainbow Button Cuffs!

I have also taken SO SO many photos of them, they are so fun and colourful...really great for photographing : ) I would love to make a huge piece of art with thousands of these colourful squares and buttons.
The beautiful Nandy Lola is modelling some here.

Embracing the Seasons!

I made this green & leafy treasury today on Etsy, it's part of my end of summer panic!
We have been picking blackberries for a few weeks now and I can see signs of autumn already. I am trying so hard to embrace the seasons and I really do love them all I just like spring and summer a LOT more than autumn and winter.

Busy Days

I just popped into town this morning to go to the lovely fabric shop for a few supplies and look what I saw!!!! the most fantastic RAINBOW tent in the world!!!!!!!!!! I had a 'happy attack' and felt rather strange for an hour or so : ) It's part of a funky little festival that is going on this weekend in Mach - which if I wasn't so busy I would have loved to go to. Maybe tomorrow?

This was a huge piece of rainbow felting I have been working on today, so big I had to move onto the floor - I need a 2 metre table I think! I have also been making some more bits of plain coloured felt for some other projects - and wow.... I have had a serious felty workout today!

Look at the FAB puzzle Rio came back with - how retro.... I love it, plus it was from an attic sale so a bargain for £2 and it was handmade locally too - what a find.

Funky Felted Flowers!

Here they all are, the 10 brooches I have been working SO hard on over the last few days. I love them so much and am so happy with the combination of handmade felt and craft felt. These are bold statement pieces at 16 by 11cm in size. I hope they will bring happy thoughts of summer to lots of people this winter!
'Happy Sunflower Brooch' has made it over to Etsy already!

10 a Day?

So all my new goodies have gone to Aberystwyth in support of my application and it's time to set about bringing these great new products to life! So in my infinite wisdom I write another 'to do' list and set myself a target of making '10 a day'
The funky flowers are work in progress - to be honest my first in my new 10 a day regime, although I did start these the night before..... and 2 1/2 days later I have finished 10 bold & beautiful felty flower brooches (photos tomorrow) Also tomorrow I will be adjusting my list, somethings I can make 10 of in a day and somethings I can't - especially with all the other jobs I have to do too!

Box Full of Goodies!

Wish me luck!
I have worked so hard on all these new goodies, and along with some old favouites they are all boxed up and ready to be delivered tomorrow to Aberystwyth Arts Centre in support of my application for their fab Christmas Craft Fair!
And talking about boxes of goodies - just look at these fab cupcakes I had from my friend for my birthday. *Almost* too beautiful to eat - yum yum yum : )

Lovely Labels

There is something so satisfying about labelling!
Especially when you have funky new labels. I have been working on lots of new products, and have spent a lot of the day labelling a batch for a big craft fair application. I have spent loads of time working on this application - so fingers crossed it will pay off!! Once these ones are delivered, I will be rolling out all the new goodies to my Etsy shop too : )
