Diary for Kate

Yes....yet another diary!!!  I think I only have another 8 on my order list (how happy am I !!)  But I am putting the pencils aside for the remainder of the night and making some more Christmas Love Birds....and a couple of other new polymer clay ideas that are floating around in my head hehehe :)

But for now, here are the work in progress images of Kate's Diary

Busy Busy Busy

Oh wow!!!  While I was sleeping last night my page views ticked over past 4,000.  How excited am I!!!!  I planned on having a giveaway once I reached that brilliant number - so stay tuned I will be announcing it in the next couple of days.  

I am have been pretty snowed under (in the most amazingly wonderful way) with 2013 diary orders.  These are the three latest ones to be finished and they are looking for good homes, if you would like one - just let me know :)





Have I introduced you to Joey?  He is the fifth and furriest member of our family.  And like every other cat on the planet, he never does what you want him to (if you want obedience, get a dog)  So I was rather impressed when he participated in my latest photo shoot - especially because I was taking photos of a new Little Christmas Cat Book :)

Under the Christmas Tree

The lovely Clare from Clare's Craftroom has a Christmas tree on her blog and some very creative people have put some wonderful things under it.  Pop by and have a look, and maybe add your creatively. Thank you Clare :)

I have been busy doing birdies lately (as well as diaries) and here are a few of them.....

These were a special order for the lovely Amanda at Jandy Moon Creations.  Drop by her facebook page and say hi.  These four are to go with the yellow and orange pair that she already has.

And then I got to wondering how small I could make the love birds, and so far....this is how small.  As you can see, you can't fit a whole lot of white ink design on them, but I think they look rather cute.  And with a hole through the middle, I think this pair are destined to become earrings.  And then my brain got thinking about Love Bird pendant, charms, bag tags........and then I got a headache from to much thinking lol

After all of that and a few more normal size Love birds as wedding presents for an order, I packed up the clay and pulled out the trusty old colour pencils.  These are the start of my Christmas Bird Tags and are available in my madeit store, if you would like to start getting organised for Christmas :)

Next on the list is Sarah's.  Hers will be a circle of flowers with 2013 in the middle

Diary start

Not a lot of blogging has been happening with me over the last week.  I have had the dreaded flu, but after 2 weeks of it not getting better, I was finally pushed by hubby to go to the doctors (a rare occurrence for me)  And I was told that yes, I had the flu, but I also had tonsillitis.  No big deal you might say, but I had my tonsils out TWICE when I was little!!!  Go figure, they have grown back yet again.  So armed with antibiotics and orders to rest I have spent most of today asleep on the lounge :(

BUT you can't keep an addicted pencil colourer down, so I am here to let you now that I have started on the 2013 diaries.  And I must say that you lovely people blow me away.  After my blog and facebook comments, I received 9 diary orders and such lovely comments!!  I even have two lovely ladies who told me that they like all of my work and I could surprise them with what I put on their diaries - how awesome is that!!

So here are the images of the work in progress of the first one.  It will be for Amanda.  If you are one of the 9 who have ordered diaries I am working my way down the list based on who ordered when, not alphabetical - Amanda just happened to get in first lol

I firstly draw the image into paper with pencil and then go over the pencil with fine line marker.
Then I pick the main colour for the image and start colouring.

Then it is just a case of adding more layers of colours and a lot of pencil sharpening.  A good pointy pencil allows me to layer the colours.

Now all of the colouring is finished - I took this photo last night and the colours are actually more vibrant in real life.  The next step is the cut the image out, attach it to some really yummy scrapbooking paper and then attach both to the cover of the diary.......hopefully I will be able to show you the finished diary in tomorrows blog :)

For next year

I know that it is a tired old saying that I seem to be saying the older I get but.....gee hasn't the year flown by.  Here we are already in September.  For me that not only means trying to get my family organised for Christmas, but also my stock.  So I have come up with something (slightly) new to add to the mayhem of cards, tags, diaries and love birds. 
Have you looked at my Little Books and thought that you would like one, but couldn't really justify it, as a functional item you HAD TO HAVE?  Well the latest series of Little Books are a must have.....especially for next year!! 
Here is the first one.  It is a 2013 Accordion Calendar.

Babushka Blues

**A reminder about the GIVEAWAY that I am having that ends Tuesday afternoon.  Just visit last Tuesdays post and leave a comment to be in with a chance to win one of two sets of hand made cards.  A very big thank you to everyone who has entered so far and for the lovely comments that you have left**

Well, Saturday has rolled around AGAIN!!!  I managed to do most of the weekly housework last night, so after finishing those off I am going to sit down and play with polymer clay today.  I have 19 love birds to make for orders - thank you lovely people!!  But today I thought I would show you a couple more Babushka Dolls I have been working on.  As with most things I make, they are so much fun to do.  These ones are now available in my Facebook Shop at

I really enjoyed the change of colour scheme with these two....hope you do too :)
Citrus colours to come next.
