Lots of Catching up to do

I have not been on in weeks and so much has happend....
I made a last minute decision to go and visit my family up North for a week. It was a wonderful time away my son enjoyed every moment of being with his Grandparents and playing with his cousins :-) It would be so lovely is we still live close to each other, i miss the North sometimes!! Anyway back to chatting about clay

The lovely lady i made this for kindly sent this image in, its a much better picture then the fuzzy ones i took
Thank you

My latest creation was a christening cake topper made in a hurry due to going up North.
Id like to have spent longer on it but feel it still looked cute
Picture sent in by the lady i made this for, i didnt make the cake by the way lol

I was going to send all of my toppers large and small via special delivery. But after sending the christening topper relised with it being so small and still strongly protected. To in future send all small toppers and ornaments via 1st class recorded delivery. This keeps the costs down for me so i do not then have to pass it on to the customer. All my larger more delicate toppers will still go via special delivery

Horror story of the week!
I have had a mad panic over one of my favourite exctruder gun discs, the finest one i use for hair. I can not find it anywhere there was a lot of tearing the house apart i can tell you. I blame my son i am sure hes has it somewhere little darling of mine;-)
Ive had to buy another set of dics just to replace that one but it is worth it. The effect it creates for my toppers hair is brilliant!

I have now bought and paid for my craft insurance with Ian W Wallace.
the price is worth it as it covers me for ever eventuality and it is talor made for crafters. I had heard a lot of good things about this insurer and i can now add my vote for them. It was so quick and easy to fill in the forms and the lovely lady on the phone aswered all my questions in full. I came away - £69 lol, but feeling secure in the fact i am now insured.

To pay for the insurance and to purchse more clay it broke my heart but i sold two of my babywearing woven wraps. I am happy they have gone to good homes and it was worth it in the end :-)

I have plenty more i need to add but i'll leave it for another day
