Why more ninjas of course...

Seeing as the buy one get one free sale in my shop has quite depleted my stock of ninjas quite substantially, yesterday I made a few more...

Not as many as I'd have liked as I'm running very short on polymer clay, I didn't make it to the craft shop yesterday and unfortunately it's closed today, however I'm going to do my best to create what I can with what I have left though!

I also made this little man, who I love...

He doesn't have a weapon as I was a little bit worried that if were going to thrown around in handbags and pockets amongst a whole load of keys the sword/nunchucks/throwing star might not do all that much to defend him in the end! But I'm quite happy about his simplicity. I'll see how in fares in the shop, but hopefully I'll be making more in the future.

I hope that everyone has had a lovely weekend...think I'm going to have a lovely lazy Sunday here.

The postman did not come yesterday...

He did not bring me my black apple christmas cards, or my moo stickers and he most certainly did not bring me amelia's magazine. I know that is nearing christmas and I must learn to be patient with the postman...he probably is very busy, but one of the few things to do when you are stuck at home poorly sick is order things on the internet and wait for them to arrive. Plus I've been so busy internet shopping that I've kinda gotten used to a package (at least) everyday!

I suppose there is a plus side to all of this I did manage to produce these...

Something that probably wouldn't have happened had my lovely magazine arrived.
Anyhow enough of my moaning...I must be off got lots of parcels to post...hopefully the postman will be nicer and quicker with those than he has been with mine!
Don't forget it's buy one get one FREE in my shop all weekend.

A good old clearout...

This is exactly what I've doing this morning...ever since I've been making beads I've been filling up a jar with all the not so perfect and last of ones that I've produced, well today I emptied that jar and went through them all, bagging them up into lovely little sale bundles.

So over the next few days I will be listing all these lonely beads in need of a home, at super discount always all my beads are free shipping, you'll be able to find them all grouped together here.

In other news I managed a photo of the little baby booties I made a couple of days ago...

I did find a free pattern online but unfortunately it wasn't the most comprehensive and as a result these pretty much came out of my head. I won't post a link to the pattern as it really wasn't much help at all!

As well as having a big clearout of stock this weekend I'll also be hosting a big black friday thru cyber monday sale, as I'm pretty sure lots of other etsy sellers will be...more details can be found here. I'll be announcing my sale offers tomorrow, here and they'll also be posted up on the front of my shop.
Happy Thursday all xxx

More Baby Pictures...

Here he is yesterday. Can't believe I'm halfway now! Despite everyone telling me it'll fly by I can assure you so far it hasn't!

Not much crafting to display I'm afraid as I haven't been up to much at all, and also it's so miserable and dark around here these days it's hard to take any decent pictures! I have made some baby booties, but I'll have to show you pictures of those another day.

I'm still off work and really starting to get bored now...although they have actually prescribed me some tablets and given me a bit more advice on what I can do to get better, so hopefully it won't be long now and I'll be full of that pregnancy energy everyone says you get in the 2nd trimester!

Stitching Little Houses...

As I've been trying to spend more time relaxing as advised...I've mostly been stitching up these little houses.

Stitching Little Houses by you.
They seem kind of festive to me, I don't know why I think they remind me of the houses I painted on a mug a few years ago...
Cromer Lights Mug by you.
I'm really enjoying embroidery at the moment, I love it because you can sit in front to of the telly and relax whilst you're doing it and unlike crochet or knitting you don't have to keep so much of a track of numbers and stitches and rows etc...  It's perfect for me right now.  This little lovelies will be backed and framed in embroidery hoops and will go on sale in my shop.
Some more pictures for you...

I hope everyone has been enjoying lovely sleepy Sundays like myself.

More Chrismas type treats....

Getting a little carried away on the Christmas theme...well it's not too long now...I've been creating candy canes and snowmen this morning...

You can see many more pictures of my Christmas creations over here and of course they'll be on sale over here.

I also made some little candy canes which will be extra little gifts to add to my Christmas sales parcels, and as I near my 100th sale I have decided that the person who purchases that 100th item will receive a whole bundle of Christmas goodies!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. xx

Festive Treats...

Well I didn't actually get around to making Christmas decorations until today what with one thing and another. Mostly just not being particularly well, I'm not really feeling any better but the doctor has banned me from doing ANYTHING and I'm starting to get a little bored. I figured a little crafting can't be that dangerous for my health!
Anyway...these are the pieces I put together this afternoon and fortunately finished just in time to catch the last bit of light.

As always they will be available for sale in my shop later on this evening. Along with these little lovelies...

They say it's going to snow this weekend and there is an eerily shade of purple light outside at the moment, which makes me believe it may be true. I do not like snow in the slightest...however if I don't have to leave the house and can admire from the warmth of inside, I can appreciate it's beauty.

Happy Friday all xx

Some MORE ninjas...

The ninjas in my shop have been flying out the last few days, especially the pink ones, so as I only had the one pink one left so far today I have mostly been making more ninjas!
As the pink ones have been such a success I decided to have a go at some other colours. I'm not sure they'll be quite as big a hit as those lovely pink ones but hey it's worth a go.

Hopefully this new found energy will result in the creating of some christmas decorations this afternoon.

The reason I've been absent...

This little one has been exhausting me in the most unbeliveable way!
Here he is at just 11 weeks now he's nearly 19 and some days I feel even more tired than I did back then. However I really want to get back into my internet and blogging life before he actually arrives and I have even less time to spare!

Crafting has been playing such a small part in my life that I really have little to show for my absence. Mostly I have been knitting and doing small amounts of embroidery. Anything I can do whilst paying little attention and sat under a blanket on the sofa! But with a few days off work I hope to produce some new items to add my shop this week.
