CC8 Polymer Clay kit makes

Crafty Creatives box 8 contained not only a theme that was very nearly my sweet shop dream theme, but it contained a polymer clay kit- one I had been eagerly anticipating, mainly to see how they'd approach it. I finally got around to playing with the clay they sent after deciding I would use only the clay they sent for the things I'd make with the kit and not mix it with any of my own (I did dip in to my own jewelry supplies, though).

Tutorial: Shamrock Cane

I'm trying to stay ahead of the game for my seasonal stuff this year, having things out roughly a month before the day in question at the least. I wanted all my green and shamrocked things up by last Friday, but I hit a few snags. Finally, it's all made, I just need to finish and list it- but here's how to make a shamrock cane which can be used to make all sorts of things!

Crafty Creatives box 8 and Dream Themes

I spent a little bit of time last night writing up part of today's blog post. I knew I wanted to digress from this month's Crafty Creatives box for a little to talk about something I've been thinking on for the past week or so. As it turns out, a large part of what I wrote is now irrelevant! 

Thank you Postie!

January in Review

January is over- everyone seems to be commenting that it was an exceptionally long-feeling month, and I totally agree. Whether it was the fact that my daughter returned to school so late, or the deadlines I had to hit when I really just wanted to breathe after Christmas, or just cold weather and gloomy days, I'm glad that we're on to February. I'm also pretty glad that I had a mostly productive month and got stuff done!

Skye over at "even artichokes have hearts" has been posting weekly Filofax pages, and I've really been getting a kick out them. I've never been the type to have a daily planner- mainly because I'm just not organised enough, but I thought I'd share my January Goals page (and then subsequent months) with you guys. It doesn't have a whole lot on it because I was 2/3 through January before I started it!
