What a busy craft time I'm having at the moment. I spent last week cutting out crowns, which little children then decorated in the craft tent at our very first pre-school fun day gala. Thankfully, it didn't rain, which for those of you living in the UK will know, was nothing short of a miracle. What happened to summer? I then rustled up a mermaid costume for E, for a school trip. I even felted some seaweed to go in her hair. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture this morning and by the time I picked her up, part of her tail was hanging off. I'm going to mend it and will post pictures later.

I also found to time to finish one of my pink projects and have just listed it on Etsy. Here it is:

Really pleased with the way it turned out, so I'm hoping to make some more in different colours.

I have also been playing around with some fimo. I bought some to make buttons, but decided they weren't strong enough, unfortunately, I reached that conclusion after buying a lot of different colours and some very expensive cutters. So I dug it all out this week and have been making some pendants. I'm hoping to create some jewellery combining the clay and felt.

Have you noticed how much crafts I've been cramming in before the school holidays start? I'm supposed to be helping my husband decorate the hallway, but I just can't help myself!!

I love that color pink, and the piece has a really nice texture. Nice work!
