The last few HOW TO posts have featured polymer clay
projects for you guys to try out, and I really hope you’ve enjoyed them.

If anyone’s tried them out, I’d really love to see how yours turned out. Drop
some pictures on our Facebook so we can spy on your polymer clay creations.

After putting a request out on our Facebook to see if there
was something in particular you guys wanted in our weekly HOW TO posts, one
request came up asking for sock and glove posts… and your wish is our command.
I’ve been scouring around on YouTube to find the raddest,
most easy to follow “how to” channels/videos.  Really liking JoannesWeb at the moment for
some great knitting and crocheting projects, so if you’d like to see what else
she does, go visit her channel on YouTube. For today I’ve loaded this
fingerless gloves tutorial.
Sit down and be ready to watch as it’s a nearly 30 minute
video. Really worth it though.


More knitting tutorials will be coming up soon, you know, so we can update our winter wardrobe with some handmade goodness ;)

Until the next post.

* SIGH *

Ok... Chrome just bombed on me after completing this really long blog post... so this is the second attempt.

Sorry for having to make you guys wait for another HOW TO... but I've been down with the sickies and hanging onto this video share till now, so ... for all of those who are "in the know" with polymer clay and haven't tried a set of these, let us know how it works out!

Defenitely needs to get me a pair of these from you crafties who can do it...

We've really had dismal market attendance over the last few months... the markets themselves have been fantastic and the atmospheres have been so awesome... but the sales. Argh.

It's pretty much a downer when this is what you do for a living full time.

But we fight on! just not so much during winter...

We'll be limiting our market attendance to The Shed's monthly night market (First Friday of every month).

Then, we've started loading stock onto our Hello Pretty store for you SA peeps that want the convenience of single site online buys.

And hey, thanks for the flood of visits and favourites on our Etsy! it really does bring a smile to my face when I see the stats increasing everyday.

And talking about increasing.

OUR FACEBOOK! How great are you guys?!

You're actually better than great. All of you.

You make this worth it for me!

Alright, before Chrome bombs out on me again (mass uploads of pictures happening on albums in our Facebook are causing it I suspect), update happening!
