Clay Cakes!

Hello!

So today I thought I’d do another artsy and crafty post, because just recently I’ve begun to make charms out of polymer clay!

Do you know when you’re on YouTube and one video leads to another which leads to another and you end up being on something completely obscure and different to what you were first watching? Well, that happened to me and I ended up watching a video tutorial on how to make a blueberry cake out of polymer clay. I was overwhelmed by the cuteness of it all and how realistic the charm looked, and before I knew it I had watched about a hundred tutorials and had so much inspiration for making my own. So I went online and ordered some basic materials for making the charms, (mainly polymer clay!), and I made a couple of little clay cakes!

I’m not going to lie – I am very proud of my first attempts! They took so long but I think it was worth it in the end!

Pretty Things!

Hello! I just thought I would share with you one of my most favourite necklaces of all time…

Peter Pan

Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning…

Isn’t it adorable?

As a lover of Peter Pan, I just couldn’t resist buying it off Etsy – and I’m so glad I did because now I wear it at least once every single week. I think it’s gorgeous!

I visited Hobbycraft just before Christmas to buy some crafty things so that I could make my Christmas cards, and as I was looking around I saw a section where you could buy all the bits and pieces you would need to create one of these necklaces, in all different shapes, sizes and colours. I’ve just had a sudden urge to make my own and see how it turns out – I might do a Mona the Vampire one!

Here’s the link to CalamityJayneDesigns Etsy page – her stuff is amazing!
