Craft Room Addition

The craft room recently welcomed a new piece of equipment. While walking through the clearance aisle of a popular craft store I noticed this:

Originally priced at $34.99 and marked down to $14.99....and this Craft Chick bought it for $6!!! Hubby was happy with it since you shouldn't use your oven for Sculpey baking more than a couple of times (chemicals are released that find their way into food later). And Little Man was impressed when I made him these:

I had made a pig before, and Little Man asked me to make him his own...then as I was getting everything together to make the pig he asked for a fish...I pulled this little puckered up fish from the creative brain bank. It was fun to just wing it right then and there without over thinking it too much. I baked them for half an hour in the oven, with the wire still threaded through them. The next day I worked the wire with some beads and Little Man had two little hand-made beads to decorate his room with.
I've been going back and forth between a lot of different artistic mediums lately. I've worked with Sculpey, beading, knitting, and crochet...

I found this pattern through Etsy, an Internet site that features handmade works and crafting supplies. The designer (monpetitviolon) lives in Italy and has, what I think, is a unique eye. Her design was cute enough for me to dust off my crochet hook to make these little darlings that even have a crochet flower button! Very cute, and they were so quick!

What a bargain, that was a great buy. The fish is really cute, I bet little man loves it.
And the bootees? Oh the cuteness! The colours really make them look fantastic.
