Etsy shop

My Etsy shop is doing well, pay a visit, I always give away freebies with my sales, & I will be adding loads of stuff this week, my busy baking tables are on there in plenty of time for christmas!

Todays happy thought I never met a chocolate I didn't like


Yay...the problem is solved, fingers crossed, there was a problem with the server, so hopefully now all is well, I can get back to posting pics & updating my website!

As you can see, I finished the spell book commission, I am now working on a commissioned piece for Etsy, I also have Halloween in mind, we are having a childrens party here on Friday, to play & cook some halloweeny, scary stuff, my eldest also wants to go ghost hunting somewhere, so I have to find somewhere suitably spooky for her, but not somewhere that I am going to be scared witless!!! (bearing in mind I get spooked walking back from town when it gets a little bit dark at 5 o clock!)

We will play duck appple, not something they have played before, we have always done the apple tied on string one, less water, less mess, but I thought we could play this in the you can see, the dolls house is playing too!

Thoughts of christmas.....

Well, I have got quite a few pics to post of some creations I have created, but once again, I can't view my blog or website....again, any other website but my own, annoying, as I am trying to update the website, I so need a new pc, ours is archaic. So as my children have been writing their christmas lists this week, I thought I would write my wishlist, bearing in mind that this is written as a fantasy list as absolutely none of it is a necessity!

A brand spanking new top of the range pc
One of those craft working tables with a big light & magnifier attached
A room to put the above in
Anything lushy!
A big telescope to look at the stars with, even better, the planets!
A really brilliant holiday for the children
Free unlimited access to a swimming pool
Loads of polymer clay
More polymer clay

Thats it for now, but I'm sure I will think of more in time!

Ok have thought of some more...the new Take That cd, special edition
The decorating fairy to do the house up.

Cleaning time again!

Right now, I have so many jobs to do, I need to find somewhere to store all the christmas goodies, clear out Happy shed as I am storing so much in there I need to re-create a workspace! I need to redesign my website as my work has changed so much in the last year, it doesn't seem relevant now.....aaaaagh so much I want it done now!.....(big breath) I also need to bring in the bramleys before they are no use to anyone, peel, cook & freeze them.....& make some goodies for Etsy (another big breath) I also need to make endless lists of presents & find some time to make or get those presents.....& have a bit of a pre-christmas clearout....but thats all!

back soon-work to do!

In the words of Victor Meldrew-I don't believe it! it's just started working again,everyone was baffled by this, but I can see my blog & website again.....I'm never logging out of this again in case I lose it.....very annoying that I have to go out for my flu jab now!!

Have got loads of new stuff to post, will try to do it by tomorrow, got a craft show tonight, still busy making my busy tables, & I have to go & see my niece before she goes home!

pc trouble (again!)

Right then, not sure where to start with this, but I cannot, no matter how I try, view my own website or blog from my house!!!! I can go to my mums, friends, neighbours etc & look at it, but not here on the pc or laptop!!! there is no issue with the site & my internet provider is baffled.......Aaaaagh as if I haven't got enough to do! any ideas anyone?????

By the way, I can look at any other site anywhere, but not this one!!!

Todays Happy (??) thought: Sorry, not inspired right now, will get back to you!!!!

Just a quick note today as I have a headache & need to lay down, preferably in a darkened room!

Todays pic is of , my hand (interesting, I know) with a miniature blackberry, to give you some idea of why I might be getting a lot of headaches lately...If I had a christmas list, I could ask father christmas for one of those workstations with a big magnifier on.....mmmmm christmas list, wouldn't that be nice-might make one anyway, just for fun!

Claying not cleaning!

Busy baking table
Well, I have been very busy, I should have been getting on with the housework, but I needed to get some clay work done, I started on the comissioned work I have been asked to do, lots of spell books!

but I need to take a break to get the house in order, well as in order as my house is ever in!

I did get some baking done though, apple & blackberry crumble, with the fruit from the garden, it was delicious! of course I had to recreate in in 12th scale & yes thats how messy things get, I'm no tidy cook, although it looks a better mess on a cute little table than it does in our little old kitchen on the worktop!! I also made a little kitchen table with christmas baking on, the idea behind these little tables, are that they might make a nice present for the cook (or recipe taster) in the family, with their favourite recipes created in miniature.

Cleaning tomorrow, then more fun!
