My World on a pin cushion :)

Image
As you maybe remember :) I live in Australia now. But most of my life I spent under completely different sky! So the wonder of the Southern Hemisphere took me deeply, and I never get tired of reminding myself that now I can claim the whole World to be MY home (give some room, Mr Darth Vader! :D))))Being in that kind of mood I crafted the next pin cushion…And the reverse side really reminds of Darth Vader :) Who else could’ve thought of cutting the Earth! :(I promise, no one’s hurt :)

Handy-crafts women know well: every craft tool have to be useful and attractive. Beautiful things bring joy, inspiration, they help creating something new.Maybe that’s the reason why I’ve received 3 orders for an item… That’s a pin cushion. Actually I use the same pin cushion myself to hold my felting needles on :) I like repetition of a good model if the customer asks for that (or for my one use). I like to see how unique every repeated item is! It’s like watching a new flower to open. You know what it’s going to look like but it’s never the same as others!Yummy, isn’t it? :)
Pin cushion like this goes on US $9 + shipping cost (as stated by Australian Post).

It’s lilies’ time!

Image
Lilies is one of my favorite flowers. I love the diversity of their appearance and the fragrance too. After all, these flowers  use to blossom on my birthday month! :)Most of the people who’ve already seen my lilies adore the off-white one the most. I wonder, why? :) What would be YOUR favorite?

Making flowers turned out to be so fascinating, I couldn’t stop sculpting the whole day! Here are two bunches I made then…Meadow flowers. Sweet reminder of summer days.Cake toppers, small flowers, hair pins, earrings… these flowers can be anything! They are tough enough to be worn as bijouterie and lightweight.Small wedding bouquet or just the gift to say “I love you” :)Orchid on a treeAnd many others!Deco clay Tags: I still can’t stop making flowers so there will be more of them soon :)Deco clay Tags:

Claycraft by Deco

I always enjoyed making something from clay. Now I found something completely new.
DECO Clay is a cutting edge technology of Japan clay artists and chemists, allowing to create thin details, impossible with usual clay. Result is unbelievably light and strong clay items. No wonder this clay is used for creating flowers.

Gentle Sunrays inspired me to felt this little Sunny Bunny. Or is it an Easter rabbit came already? I think, I should search for some eggs nearby :)
