Etsy Treasury's

I finally figured out how to do a treasury on Etsy. As always I made it harder than it was. I do find it a little more ungainly than the Artfire Collection maker, but maybe I just need to fool around with.

Giant Paper Flowers

My daughter's sixth birthday was last week and her Grandmother sent a treasure trove of crafty kits  for her. One of the gifts was a paperflower kit.

The kit came with lots of tissue paper in a rainbow of colors and pipecleaners to match.  The instructions were easy to follow and soon we were making beautiful flowers.  My daughter got bored after the third flower but I continued to make more. What a fun simple little kit.

I may have to buy my own kit now!

RockStar Beads

Yesterday I spent all day glazing and watching bad movies.  I tried a few new things out. I had bought these bright pastel underglazes awhile back but had yet to really give them a go.  I usually go with a more natural color palette but also I hate being put into a box and labeled as that one thing so every now and then I like to breakout of the box and do something different.

So here are a few pictures of my latest kiln fire and oh boy, I am super pleased. I had listed some in my shop already and am going to list more tomorrow!
