My Creative Space Thursday

Well, a whole week has flown past without a post. I had toyed with the idea of doing Blogtober, but I'm glad I didn't commit. I haven't had time to breathe lately let alone post. Work has been insanely busy and so by the time I come home the last thing I feel like doing is blogging (even crafting has been a little light-on!)
It seems a few bloggers are feeling the same way at the moment. Time just seems to be flying past so quickly, I guess we're all feeling the need to spend time in the outdoors, with loved ones, or some quality time with ourselves (sorry if that sounded like Dr Phil )

Ok, rather than wasting more time blabbering on, how about I show you some pictures of the things I have been enjoying in My Creative Space. I've got a very small stall happening in a few weeks for a Rotary morning tea, so I've been ramping up the Fimo jewellery stock to sell.
A selection of the different types I'm making. The ones on the left are done in the candy cane way which is really fun to do
Close-up of the rosebud earrings
The 2 flowers are brooches, and the top 4 pieces are for necklaces. I just need to add them onto leather.
and my favourite piece above. I'm trialling some sewing pin toppers. This is the grape one, and I think I'll stick to making different sorts of fruits.
I also need to post about the WONDERFUL time I had in Melbourne with Mama Honi. We went down to see the Quilt Project in all it's glory. And oh my, it was amazing. Kirsty did such a wonderful job - thank you :) I will post pictures soon!!

Love the rosebuds! And the fruity pin toppers is a great idea. It is a busy time of year isn't it? Crazy. Hope you find some more time for you xo

Love the pin! You must have great hand control to do such fine work.
Hope you sell lots!

They are just wonderful!! How do you manipulate it so well - is there a secret trick that I need to know? or am I just wood block fingers? ;) Hope this week's a lot more restful for you. K

I haven't gotten so excited about fimo since I was 8. Beautiful!

Bec...the pin toppers are ACE!

It was so fabulous to meet you (& your gorgeous mum). Thank you so much for making the effort to coming down & for generally being lovely.
