Crafty Happenings

Here are some of the things that have been going down at my craft desk recently:

I made a fresh batch of mushroom charms...



...so that I could stock up my shop with these mushroom earrings.



For the shop listing, I photographed them in my hand to demonstrate size with my yard as a background.



Props to Janelle over at Dancing Mooney for giving me the idea on my recent post about whether merchandise should be photographed on the human body or not. See there, friends? I take every one of your comments to heart. ♥

I also made some new Rainbow Bubbles Pendants...



...and shipped out a few packages.



During one daytime crafting session, I turned around to see my kitty taking a nap in the chair. I had to halt my sculpting for a moment so I could grab my camera and take his picture. He's my lazy little crafting buddy!



What's your current creative outlet?

Your new stock is looking great! I love the mushroom earrings, so similar to the mushroom magnets on my Grandma's fridge!
Love your craft buddy! I have a crafting buddy too, I should photograph him in the act as well!

I so wish I could afford to buy some of your mushroom earrings! They're are awesome!

My current creative outlet is sewing little plushies and making some jewelry out of shrinky dinks. I was on a digital art kick for a while, but I guess I burnt myself out on that. I'm sure I'll return to drawing soon enough though!

Awe, cute earrings, Holly! I can't wait to see your works of art at Indie this year.

I would have say that my creative outlet has been coming from theatre. It's so nice to be in a play again!

Those Mushrooms are just too cute! Your cat has the right idea, a nap is sounding pretty good right now. If only I had time.

I'm not going to the crochet thing, I think Sherri is the perfect person for it though! I'll be posting about your Etsy class soon darling ;)

Looooove those mushrooms!!

And I'm just sayin...if you happened to make a sparkly pot leaf necklace or earrings or hairclip...I'm just saying, I'd buy it. 100%. ;)
