Resin Filled Shells And Needle Felted Necklaces

Hi, today I want to show you my new necklaces. I had made two shell necklaces some weeks ago of which I wanted to make a tutorial about, but I was just too unmotivated. But I'll see, that I finish the tutorial before new years eve. ^^
I like that the shell necklaces look so simple. But I think, they would look prettier with white satin and organza ribbon, unfortunately I just have colored ribbons. I need to buy some white ones. ^^

Because it was so much fun to felt the snowmans, I felted these two necklaces the last days. As I searched on the internet, I got the idea for the snowbear necklace as I've seen which kind of snowmans others build. I saw a couple of snowmans in the shape of animals that has inspired me.
At first the necklace looked a bit empty, so I felted a small felt pearl and decorated it with a glitter heart. I also added some white pearls, a small ribbon bow and a label charm to the chain. Now I really like it! (^▽^)

Clay Cupcakes And Felt Snowmans

Hey, in my last post I've said that I want to felt some snowmans, what I have done now. I have made two pieces - a small one and a bigger one. What do you think about them?
Because I didn't felt for a while, I wanted to make a attempt at first before making an tutorial about it.
The big snowman was my first attempt. He looks very funny but there are some things which I've could made better. The lower part look too oval, because I felted the two balls together and I'm still not good in shaping the felt. The oval shape is not really bad but I think, it will look better with perfect round balls. I also dislike the felted scarf because it looks just flat.
I like the small snowman more and about this one I'll make an tutorial.

The cupcake charms I've made some time ago. The small cupcake on the bottom right is for christmas too. I piped some green whipped cream in shape of an christmas tree on it and decorated it with some little rhinestones, a yellow star pearl and a small gift package. I really like this charm. Unfortunately the picture has become a bit too small but you can see it better in my upcoming craft update video.
Then I've also made two bigger cupcakes. These two were just small experiments but I think, they look good. I will make more of them in the future.

Cookie House And Memo Holders For Christmas

Hello together, here is some of the christmas stuff which I've made - two memo holders and a cookie house.

For the snowman memo holder I used different clays and resin. The inner of the glass is just simple and similar to my halloween sundae memo holder. On the ground of the glass I've glued a tree and a little thing which should look like a strawberry santa but I've failed so hard. xD
At first I wanted to fill the glass with some other stuff too (a small penguin, gift packages or something like that), but the resin caused a magnifying glass effect and everything seems much lager as it really is. So I just filled some fake snow in and didn't add more decorations. It looks a bit empty and boring now, but it's okay I guess.
On the top I've made a big snowman with a hat and a ribbon. Originally I wanted to make a snowman with ice cream scoops, fruits and candies, but I was too lazy to make all the decoration stuff. Maybe I'll make the candy snowman sundae next year. ^^

I've also made a big cupcake memo holder with a small santa, reindeer and christmas tree on it. I've also added some chocolate glaze, whipped cream and sprinkles.
It was really hard for me to make these small figurines out of air dry clay. I think, I'm not good in making figurines, but it's a lot easier to make it with polymer clay as with air dry clay. Air dry clay dries so fast... But although it was not easy, it have made a lot of fun and I think, the results looks good - not spectacular, but quite cute. ^^
I think about, if I should add a red ribbon around the cupcake paper, because it looks a bit empty and boring. I will see.

Then I've also made a small cookie house. I think, it's okay... but I'm not really happy with it. I don't know what I should think about it. The idea and the decorations are cute but the walls have become too yellowish and the white cream/glaze was too thin. I've also made the walls too thin, so it's easy to damage them. Well, for the next time I know, what I could do better. ^^

I'm Sooo Lazy... ^^

Hey, I didn't post anything for a while, but unfortunately I'm still pretty sluggish. I don't know why; there is no shortage of ideas or something like that. On the contrary, I have many ideas, but I'm too listless to realize them. But I try to make some more new stuff. At the moment I'm working on some stuff for Christmas.
But I was not completly inactive in the last time. I've made some new rings and mobile phone stuff. And I'll upload a tutorial for the bear buger charms in the next days.

Give Away On Facebook And My Halloween Stuff

Hey ho! Some days ago I started the give away on my facebook site. Click!
The text is unfortunately in german because I have more german 'fans' on facebook. But I'll make the next giveaways in english language. :)

In the pictures you can see the halloween stuff, which I've made the last days.
I have made an apple pie with an creepy grimace, also an cookie with orange filling and a lot of halloween decorations on it, and a small, nice decorated chocolate candy in a silver foil cup. I've also made an new halloween note holder. I hope, you'll like the new stuff. :3

Some Resin Stuff

Hey guys, I'm back with some new stuff! :)
This month I've bought me new resin, because my other resin didn't work really well. Often it didn't dry completely, it's sticky or it's flexible. The new resin works great and it looks just nice at the end. I love it!
Meanwhile I really like resin. It's great, that you can make a large amount of new charms fast and easily. Resin is great for people which have shops and need to make a lot of new stuff, in a short time. :)

Felt Purse And Some Rings

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hey guys, today I've got my purse frames and I immediately finished my first felt purse. I'm so happy! It's great fun to make purses and I love my frames. I've ordered some more purse frames from China, but it still need some more time until the package will arrive me. It can take four up to weeks, but I hope, it will arrive earlier. ^^

What do you think about the purse? I think, for the first attempt, it become pretty good. But it was a really mess, to glue the felt into the frame. Luckly it's the only frame which I need to glue on, the other frames I can sew on. I think, it'll be easier.

First Decoden Headphones

Today I've finally finished my headphones, which I had bought some time ago. These are the first headphones I've made until now and I think, for the first try, they are good.

The lace is made out of a pvc material, so it was not easy to glue it on the headphones. It was really stubborn. ^^
At first I wanted to make some fake whipped cream on the headphone and wanted to add a lot of decoration parts, but I've decided against that. I think, it was a good decision, so the headphones didn't look overloaded.

I think, I'll make more headphones in the future.

New Memo Holder And Earrings


Hey, the last time I've made some new earrings and memo holders, which should look like small sundaes.
It's great fun to make note holders like these, but I need too many materials for it - silicone, clay and also all the decorations, which I have to prepare before.
Currently, I'm going to make a few other sundaes and memo holders, but I think, they will be the last for now.

Once again I've bought some new materials and also have found some purse frames, so I can make my first needle feltet pouches soon. I'm so excited!
But before I make the pouches, I need to make some gifts for a trade package, which I make with a dear friend. I'll post some pictures, when the packages are finished and have arrived.

I hope, you'll like my new stuff. :)

Donut Charms


Hey, today I want to show you my latest charms. As you can see, I've made a lot of donuts, because it makes such a great fun. ^^
I want to make some more for necklaces and brooches. I wonder, which other animals will look good as a donut. I'm going to make me some sketches, but piggies could might look cute, I guess.

What do you think about my new charms? Do you like them? Which one is your favorite?

I Have Revised My Blog

Heyho, the last days I have revised my blog a bit. I've added pictures, banners for link exchanges, a popular posts widget, links to other sites and a new mouse cursor which should look like my logo. I've also made some smileys for my blog and also a Top 100 List, were you people can add your crafter website or blog.

I think, in the past I was too inactive on my blog. Now I want to write more and also I will post more tutorials and maybe some reviews to different craft materials. I don't want to be focused so strongly on facebook anymore.

Oyumaru Review + How To Use

Oyumaru is a cheap silicone non-stick moulding material from Japan, which is re-usable. This molding material is perfect, if you want to make lots of molds, but only need to use each a single time.

Oyumaru feels hard, a bit like rubbery plastic and you can soften it with a mug of hot water. It does not stick to Polymer Clay, Art Clay, Epoxy Putty and alot of other sculpting masses.

Oyumaru is hard to get in Europe or America. You can buy it at eBay, in Daiso Shops, at Etsy and other (online) shops.
You can get Oyumaru in many different colors and amounts.

No Internet


This koala necklace and birthday card was a gift for a dear friend

Hey my dears, unfortunately I didn't had internet the last month, so I couldn't post new entries.
The last weeks I wasn't really active. I just made some new necklaces and decoration stuff (mainly fruits) for upcoming cakes and other projects.
What do you think about my raspberries? I've made some in the past, but they were really ugly. My new ones look better I think, but they don't look perfect for me. :/
I really like the new felted necklaces, especially the panda and the poodle (yes, it should look like a poodle with purple hair. It don't look like a dog, but it's still cute... ^^), but somehow I don't like the sheep. I've made some before, which I like, but this one is bigger and because that, the eyes didn't have the right size. I think, I need to buy some middle sized eyes. I just have really small and really big eyes, but none in a middle size. :/

I'm On Instagram Now! :D

Hello! :D
Some days ago I felted these cute sheeps which look like small, fluffy balls. I really, really like them and they are easy to make, but it took a little, to make the "wool". ^ ^
Out of the sheeps, I've made hair ties and I also want to make similar necklaces.

In the next time, I'll make a realistic looking sheep for my brother-in-law. I hope it will look nice. ^ ^

It's been a while, since I've made the cold porcelain for the first time. Meanwhile I've made a bunch of new porcelain, but everytime, I've failed with it. Either the mass become to hot in the microwave, or I had a lot of lumps in it. One of the overcooked portions I tried to save with a bit of vinegar and the mass is really smooth and great now, but all my modeled pieces get big cracks during drying. It's sooo annoying! :(
Today I've made a another try, but I'm not sure if it's okay now. Maybe I cooked it too short this time. I'll see it tomorrow. :/

Lots Of New Stuff!

Hiho! Some days ago I hiked up a small hill with my husband and dog, because the weather was just great. It was pretty tiring, but it was also fun. ^ ^ 
On the way back, I found an old box in the bushes, which I found so beautiful that I had to take it home. Now I planned to sand it a bit with sandpaper and then I want to paint it with white color. Maybe I try to make decoupage on it. I never made it before, so I'm unsure if I should do it... I'll see.

The last days I've made a lot of new stuff - rings, hairclips, bag charms and mobile phone accessoires. The bag charm with the waffle and the ice cream, is definitely my favorite, but the other stuff become good too. I really like the ice cream charms. :D
I think, I'll make the tarts more often in the future. They are easy to make and look just great. :)

Clay Tarts And My First Feltet Bracelet

Heyho! Yesterday I grabbed my clay and made some new stuff - donuts, ice cream, a waffle and tarts. I have a lot of canes, which I don't use really much, so I thought to myself, that I should make some tarts, to use them. On the left in the picture you can see my first two finished tarts. I really like them, but I don't know, for what I should use them. Maybe for some hairclips and rings? I'm not sure yet...

I need to use up my clay before it dries, so I need to make some more cakes, ice cream and others. Oh yeah, it just reminds me that I really wanted to make ladyfingers and eclair. Maybe I'll make some more donuts too.

I also had made my first needle felted bracelet and I worked with elastic thread for the first time, but I'm not sure if it will hold. I'm apparently too stupid to make firm knots! I'll see, that I find a good solution, maybe there is a good tutorial somewhere for it. ^ ^
Meanwhile I'm better in needle felting, I guess. Now I know, how long I need to felt and now it's easier for me, to make equal parts. But though I need practice and I need to learn a lot. I know that needle felting is very complicated, but I really need a extremely long time until I've finished something.
My white felt is almost empty, so I need to buy some new in the next time. It's hard to believe how much material I consumed. At first I thought that I get along with the wool for a long time. ^ ^

Phone Cases And Other Stuff Made From Felt

 Hey together, the last days I've felted some new things. I've covered two phone cases with a layer of felt. Before this, I've felted appliques on the felt. 
I really like the phone cases! For the first attempts, they are great, I guess. :D
Next time I'll make similar appliques, just a bit wider. I think, the bear and the rabbit look a bit long and thin, which seems strange.

Big Sundae Note Holder

Hello at all! Unfortunately, I don't have made much in recent times. My dog was very sick, so I had other things on my mind. Now he is reasonably healthy, but now my other dog is sick. :(
As my dog felt better, I finished my big note holder. I think, it will become okay, but something bothers me. I'm not really sure what... But it's okay, it was just a try.

Felted Animals and some bla bla

Hello, yesterday and today I've used my Hamanaka Mascot Kit and tried to make the panda and the rabbit from the package picture. Similarity is unfortunately hard to find, maybe except at the colors and the hat which the panda is wearing. However, I really like the panda, but the rabbit is just weird, I think. The white parts become too strong. I want to make it more transparent, but I used too much of the white felt. Also the head form or the snout form look strange. The chest and the legs look strange too. I don't know, I don't like the whole animal. 
Fortunately I have some felt over, maybe I'll try the rabbit again, just smaller and maybe with other colors. I will see.

I've Got My Hamanaka Kits

As you maybe have seen I've bought two Hamanaka Felting Kits some time ago, which I have got now. I've bought a Mascot Kit with wool and other parts, to make this cute panda and rabbit. I bought it, because I
thought it's good for learning, but now I'm pretty sure, that it is too hard for me. My animals will never look like the ones on the package. Also the instructions are in japanese and I'm not sure, how big I need to cut the colors. It's written in the instructions, but I don't understand it. I need to translate it in the next time. ^^
I've also got my Hamanaka Starter Kit which comes with an felting book, felting needles, a needle holder with two needles, a needle pad and some protectors for the pad. 
I'm so happy that I've got my package so fast. I love the kits, they're so lovely! (*o*)

My First Felted Creations

Hiho, I've made new needle felted creations, but I'm not really happy with them. They look just terribly! It's strange that my first felted thing look better as the following. At the bear on the top right, I had big problems to add the eyes. I tried to poke holes for the eyes, but they become too small. For this I just used a embroidery needle, because I didn't had the right tools for this, but now I've bought a tool to make the holes easyer. However, because the holes become too small and thin, the eyes not fit perfectly and stand out slightly. I think, the mouth look also weird... it's too big and the hood becomes too flat. I also dislike the other bear. I don't like the mouth and the eyes. It looks so psychopathic or not? ^^
But beside these badly stuff, I've made a bracelett with hearts, which I really like. :)

My First Materials For Felting

Good evening, I've got a big package with all the wool and the needles (also a needle holder for four needles) which I've ordered. I've also got some small plastic eyes, but they are really, really small. Now I need to make small animals I guess, or I need to misuse them as noses. I think, I need to buy some bigger eyes or I make some out of Fimo, but will they look good? :/
Unfortunately the Hamanaka Kits will come later. The shipping takes a bit longer anyway, but the seller seems to have problems with sending. It's okay, I do not need it urgently, but I'm still happy when I get it. Hopefully it won't get lost. I'm such a worried girl, but mainly I'm impatient. ;D

I Want To Learn Needle Felting!

Hello together, I've made some new mobile phone straps and I hope, you'll like them. :)

On saturday I've got a small,... well I'll call it "starter kit", from my mother in law. Since a long time I want to learn needle felting, but mostly I've spended all the money for clay and stuff, which I needed for making fake sweets and jewelry. I felted for the first time and at the first I wanted to felt a complete dog and the dog head from my logo, but unfortunately the felting needle brokes after some minutes into two halves, so I could just do a puppy head (see down below). I think for the first try it's okay, but of course I need some more practice.
Needle felting and modeling with clay are very similar, maybe this is why I didn't had big problems with it. It makes definitely great fun and I want to make some more felt stuff in the future. Now I need new needles and of course I picked me out some offers at Ebay. I bought a starter kit with wool in forty different colors + tree needles (coarse, medium and fine). Also I bought a Hamanaka Starter Felting Kit for beginners and a Hamanaka Mascot Kit. I'll show you all the stuff when it has arrived.

How to make your own mold silicone putty


Mold puttys are often really expensive and sometimes hard to get, so I want to show you a cheap and great alternative. Here I show you, how you can make your own kneadable silicone putty for molding.


All you need is:
silicone caulk in your favorite color (you can get it from your local hardware store),
 cornstarch or baby powder,
latex gloves,
a small bowl and something to stir,
things you want to make a mold of (for example: cabochons, metal pieces and more),
if you want to color your putty, you'll also need acrylic paint.
