It's all about Fairies

After days of cutting, sanding, painting, glittering & sticking I have finally finished a few more fairy bits.
These are all coming (there is more but I didn't photograph them), to the craft fairs tomorrow & Sunday.
I am loving the whole fairy thing...I have lots of new makes planned for the new year, now I am getting into the swing of it.
New & exciting ventures are ahead & I cannot wait!

Losing my marbles!

So today I wake up with the intention of making some serious headway on orders & makes ready for the Craft fair on Saturday & the Christmas Market on Sunday.....I have 4 days to get everything made & finished....panicing just a tad.
I need to do soo much that my head is spinning....my "to do" list is just out of control LOL...I am sure someone is adding things to the list when my back is turned.
My time management skills have left the building....leaving me to fumble my way through the day in a complete crafting coma....normally I am able to juggle 3 or 4 projects/makes & cook & clean the house.
Not today! This will help explain my state of mind by 5pm today......I spent an hour looking for my hot glue gun...I am starting to pull every box off the shelving units....pulling out all the contents of each box....where on earth have I put it? I had it Friday....I used it!!!!!! Panic.....
It was in the fridge! I kid you not....I must have randomly put it in there earlier when I was prepping for dinner. Told you....crafting coma!
Anyway it is now 1am & am about to wash off the paint & glue & go crash out in bed...fingers crossed I can be a little more productive tomorrow.
Here is a little peek at something that will be coming to the fair on Saturday...
Will post full pics of all the new makes when they are finished...hopefully in time.
Wish me luck my special Llama's...I am going to need it!

Steampunk letters

The amount of interest in the steampunk & vintage makes has been mad. I won't be making any more until the new year, I just don't have the time.
Once Christmas is out of the way I want to start working on a brand new project, I am just in the planning stages & starting to design it out. Looking forward to getting creative with it.
Here are a few pics of a couple of steampunk/vintage letters that I made for someone. They are chunky 18mm×150mm free standing letters. They do look fab on a shelf...the pictures don't really do them justice.
If I get the time (or insomnia strikes), I may do a few frames & mirrors.
I still need to do my family makes...trying not to panic lol.
Anyway enough of my ramblings....until next time, catch ya later special Llama's!

Where are Santa's little helpers when you need them?!

Wow we are busy! Lots of stock arrived today so we can get cracking on orders & new makes for the craft fairs we are doing this month.
We have had soo many requests for steampunk letters & bits but we just don't have the time to take orders for these on the run up to Christmas...so we have decided to add a few steampunk pieces for the craft fairs....Not many though so they I doubt they will hang around long.
Here is a little sneak peak....
