What I've been working on... well some of it anyway :)

Before I say anything, let me say that these pictures are not so great. Lighting is bad and I didn't have time to get artificial light set up. I'm sooo busy! And I'm so sorry! Not only have I taken such a long time since my last post, but now I give you crappy pictures... it's a wonder I still have followers! XD

I've been working on some more charms, those bracelets I showed you before. They are my steady income right now but they are so time consuming. I've been running behind on everything else because of them. So... Kate and Emily, thanks for being so patient!

The pictures I have here are part of a package that will be going to Kate of The Whittaker's Miniatures and her daughter Emily of Emily Claire Fashions. Kate wanted plain pumpkins and pumpkins with faces, I just loved making the faces!

They both wanted skulls, Emily wanted a skull inkwell like on the Merlin show. I loved the idea so much that I cut the top off another skull and stuck some scrolls in there. Hope you girls like it! I'm also providing an assortment of feathers for quills. The white one in the skull has a pen attachment with a gold nib. You can kind of see it better in the picture after this one, kind of. When I was making the skull inkwell I was experimenting with the size and molded a small skull that I'm sending some casts of, I think I remember Kate and Lola getting inventive with skulls and books :).

Kate wanted some tombstones for a project she's working on, she picked some of my favorites. Again, sorry the lighting is so bad. It makes the colors look all wrong :(. They are actually gray and black, looks like a cement or stone finish. And Kate wanted the tree, I love that tree!

I still have quite a few things to finish up for them, it's about 9am here so I plan to spend the day working on it all. The best part about this all is that I get to make things I love, and send them to great people that I know will love them, and it gets me away from those darn bracelets for a while! XD

I've had my daughter Marie working on something special for Kate's other daughter Lola of Princess Lola's Miniature Diary, it's going to be quite lovely! Can't wait to show it!

Ladies, I'll have your package sent off this week, I promise!
