Ok I have a thing for stars and lights. And star lights. So for the last few days I’ve been working on these mini stars that cover small fairy lights. It’s a lot of work, as two parts of each star have to be made around the wires and there are 40 stars all up, for a total of 200 parts. I was just , moving the wire along as I went and this other unfinished sculpture happened to be a good place to drape what had been done as I worked on the rest.
I finished the last star tonight and now only have seven more open baubles to go for my plan.
So if you follow me on instagram or twitter then keep an eye out in a few days for a fun reel.
Speaking of reels I finally made one I had been meaning to do for ages and it has been doing ok. It’s been watched 3942 times, liked 155 times, has 8 comments, 7 messages and 9 saves. Not record breaking or anything but not bad for a cute little reel. Esp as I havn’t been on insta much the last few weeks. I’ve been struggling a bit with trying to get everything done.
My awesome aunt/landlady put my display cabinet together for me today, with some help from me and not so much help from Millie. Millie and I did have fun playing with the paper though. I brought this cabinet ages ago and it just never got made but we will be having a guest in the spare bed room for a while so there was a little bit of reorganisation/cleaning going on these last two days. We will also have another cat there will most likely be more cat photos.
I have to say that this photo of the cabinet is not the best one I took but IDK I felt the need to share how random our house is. And FYI the deer like the cats, came with living in the house. It’s just there. And as we already have other things around the place this cabinet went where there was room. It’s right outside my bedroom/studio door so it works out just fine. The water cooler was a gift from mum, as having moved in with the boys they didn’t need two. We use it all the time and it’s great, the only thing though is that using it all the time means we need to fill it up all the time.
I also made a light up tree topper for my golden set and I am going to leave it how it is, but next time I think I will need to use a wire with more lights as I don’t like how uneven it is despite my best efforts.
Hum other than that, I can’t recall if I mention that I closed my shopify as it was expensive and none of my sales were coming through it. Also it’s not really set up for custom orders.
I’ll try to do another post before Christmas and then I’ll be off the blog for two weeks as I need a break from things/need to get organised for next year. I started on my calendar today and it is now full of colour and has some important dates marked in.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and hopefully everybody makes it through the new year safe and healthy despite the pandemic.
