Colouring In For the Holidays

December 30, 2013

A few parents here and there,
find school holidays a real survival challenge.

Especially the six week long, Christmas/Summer holidays
we have down here in Oz.

But I remember my Mum loved having us home for the holidays.

We were on the opposite end of ‘wealthy’ on the economic scale,
however we always had SO much fun.

I have such fond memories of
* playing with paper dolls (hours and hours)
* playing schools, shops and Mums & Dads
* mucking around outside
* and colouring in.

Man,
I really loved colouring in.
Still do – big time!

Recently,
I decided that I wanted to make a poster for my 2014 ‘Word’,
which is actually two words . . .
“Dream BIG”.

After quite a few drafts,
I finally made a copy that I would be happy to colour in.

And here it is
for you to print off
and perhaps colour in yourself,
or share it with some ‘short people’ that you know would enjoy it.

And if you do,
please, PLEASE
send me a photo,
via the comments section,
of your completed awesomeness.

I was unsure if I could still do it.

And then I realised
– I missed it.

Badly!

So here is the timetable

to help you visualise what each class is about.

Christmas Holidays 2014 – Craft Class Timetable

The timetable is mainly for CHILDREN,
however,
I am eager to cater for adults at any other given timeslot
including the weekends or evenings
when a tipple or two would be socially acceptable!!!!

Stamped Polymer Clay – I Couldn’t Stop!

July 29, 2013

As I already had the clay laying around
’cause I needed an excuse
I decided to make a just few more
stamped polymer clay images.

I even used some un-stamped ‘scraps’ to finish of a drop pendant design.

Here’s a quick tutorial to get you rockin’.

Stamped Polymer Clay – Uber Cute!

Polymer clay keyrings

This is such a cute and simple idea from Ashley at the blog “Make It-Love It”.
She has simple & terrific ideas and I have ‘pinned‘ a LOT of her tutorials.

Here is my attempt at this great little craft idea.

.

1.  I usually use Sculpey, as it is a great quality product and yet is probably the most affordable.

.

2. Break off a piece of polymer clay and then ‘work’ it. The warmer you get it, the more pliable it becomes.

.

.

3. Flatten polymer clay between two equal-height sticks.

.

.

4. Using a waterproof ink pad, ink up a stamp.
Choose a stamp image that offers a strong silhouette.

.

5. Gently pull the polymer clay away from the stamp

6. Try stopping at one – impossible !!

Polymer clay pendants

.

.

I’d love to see if you make one.
