New in my shop at Etsy!

I have been having lots of fun making my OOAK Fimo Clay Brooches.  After curing the clay I affix dried flowers from my own flower garden this year and then add 2 coats of Delta Ceramacoat to help protect the flower. 

This time, I made marbled bases.  Here are the ones I have listed so far.

And don’t forget, if you are looking for tiny glass vial pendants, I still have a few left.  Once these are gone, there will not be any more available in my shop.

The ones I still have available are the Cognac/genie bottle ones, and the round tube style ones.  I have the tube style set available in quantity of 10, and the cognac ones available in quantities of 6, 10, 25 and 50.

New at Etsy.com !!

I have been playing again with my clay and have come up with some new creations. 

First one is a Suncatcher.  I made it out of a translucent clay, cured it and then affixed a dried purple pansy to it.  The pansy is out of my own flower garden and was dried for a couple of months.  It kept most of it’s original colour!  I then coated the sun catcher with two coats of Delta Ceramacoat to ensure the safe keeping of the flower.  Here it is 🙂

Own the Hour!

There is a wonderful new service available for Etsy artists called Own the Hour!   http://etsy.ownthehour.com  It is an advertising site that artists can buy a spot on for an hour, for only 50 cents! ($0.50)  There are only 12 spots for each hour, and competition is getting heavy to grab one of those highly valued spaces.   It is run by Christian Flickinger who is also an artist on Etsy, http://spooons.etsy.com , and has two other sites http://eburl.net (a site that helps shorten those long urls for you) and http://diyscene.com (an Alternate craft and Indie site forum). 

I decided to try a spot for today, it was set for 7am and 8am.  I received some new hearts (shop and item) plus 35 new views!  I am very pleased with the results of this, and have purchased another spot for tomorrow morning at 1am.

I am looking forward to this, and will let you all know how it turns out 🙂

 **************************************

I was so excited this morning.  I had an order for 12 greeting cards!  The person who ordered them wants them to write quick letters or thank you notes to people.  She even let me choose what ones to send her 🙂  I chose a nice variety of flowers, and nature themed ones, since those are her favourites. 

I have also decided this year to make all of my Christmas cards for people.  So, for my family at least, 99% of their gifts this year will be handmade by me, including the gift tags.  I have even had special requests for my OOAK sculpt ornaments!

Winter is here again.

Well, it looks like winter is finally arriving here in Ontario.  Yesterday it was a very dreary wet day, and by the time I went to bed last night it was snowing.  Although there was no snow on the ground when I woke up, there was, and still is some on top of our vehicles.  I still have some tulip bulbs to put into the ground before the frost sets in, and I am hoping that on my day off this week that I can do it.

I have been playing with my fimo clay again.  I started out wanting to make little angels, but for some reason they just would not form for me.  That is ok though.  I ended up with these cute little fae folk instead!

I have decided to start allowing the clay to speak through me, rather than trying to make it do what I want.  I am also learning how to add other materials to my sculptures, such as hair etc.  When you add hair (fibers, wool etc) it is called wigging.  It is not the easiest thing to learn, and it will continue to be a learning process for me.  Here are my first attempts at it. 

I have added a Santa Claus to my Etsy shop in addition to the two above. 

His beard is made out of acryllic fibers, same as the Fae Creatures hair.

  There are 3 more of these that I have not listed yet.

I think before I list these, I am going to be working a bit more with the beards.  I am not happy yet with them.

I have some more snowmen and a teddy bear too.

I also have these with green and blue ribbons on them. 

Over the next few weeks I have some ideas that I will be working on, and will post some pictures of them as I complete them.
