Valentine's Heart Pendant

On Pinterest I saw this heart pendant that was sold by an Etsy store once. The Etsy Store seemed empty and unused now, but I really liked the heart and because I had some polymer clay left overs from other projects, I gave it a try myself. Just altered it a bit (making the breastbone more looking as a breastbone and I placed the heart behind the ribcage) and now I have my very own pendant.

Pikachu

After making Weedle last week for my oldest daughter I had to make Pikachu for my youngest this week. No idea what or who these creatures are, I just make what my daughters asked me to make. Of course I know they're from a Japanese game, but that's about it.

Made it! #2

~I love Pinterest and would like to make one thing that I find on Pinterest every week. Since I have a lot of pins (that I've just pinned and only that), I hope this will be a way to reduce the amount of pins on my boards. It can by anything, from cooking to crochet and from sewing to papter crafts. Just small projects that doesn't take weeks to make~

Last week I announced I wanted to make a Thai Peanut Soup. Unfortunately my grocery store didn't have all ingredients and because I'm not the kind of person that loves to shop six different stores to find what I want, I always improvise a bit when I can't find all the stuff I need in one place. Instead of sweet potatoes for example I used normal potatoes. And because no one in my family, except me, likes mushrooms, I skipped them from the recipe. Instead of fresh lime, I used juice from a little bottle. Even though, the soup was delicious! A keeper!

For next week I would like to make the polymer clay angler fishes below, since my youngest daughter is totally into angler fishes these days.

Angler Fish Sweater

Being into Angler Fishes, of course my daughter wants an Angler Fish Sweater instead of a nice birthday dress for her birthday (I'm afraid the time of nice dresses for her birthday is gone anyway, now that she will be seven years old in a couple of days). 
But, you wouldn't believe it, Angler Fish Sweaters aren't sold in every shop you can find. Not even in Internet shops. So once again I had to make up something myself. Fortunately my nearby Craft Store sells iron on flock, so I bought a nice sweater and after drawing, cutting and iron on-ing an angler fish, this is what came out.

Half Lotus Bunting

In just two weeks my youngest daughter has her seventh birthday and almost right after Christmas I barely have time to make decorations, a birthday dress or a cake for her, like I do for her sister. Her sister has her birthday in summer, when oceans of time lay ahead to make birthday related things. 
But I managed to make a garland. My youngest chose a theme for her birthday, namely the angler fish, but strange enough a garland featuring angler fishes was nowhere to be found. So I made something else.
 



I used this pattern before, but still like it very much. It's easy and fast to make. You can find the pattern here.
