the log cabinHello I have been having a lovely break. Exploring my new town, house and studio. We started decorating the tree and making decorations today. So I thought since it looks so festive I would take some photo's of the cute log cabin in the rainforest we are renting. We put the old Bing Crosby on the Cd player danced around and got down to decorating and making things. We made star paper chains out of toilet paper (which I found out is the perfect height and width for making paper chain) and we made origami lanterns.
Handmade clay Christmas decorations. Made buy rolling out porcelain clay and using cookie cutter shapes. Sending them to the kiln. Then when dry painting with acrylic paints. Brilliant for kids!
Felted Christmas decorations made buy folding felt in half, drawing a shape cutting it out, so you have 2 pieces. Sewing it together and leave a opening for stuffing with cotton wool or something similar, then sew the opening together, and decorate the outside with sequins or anything. Also fun for kids!
Our Eclectic handmade decorated tree.
Origami Lantern, this is all connected by a series of folds and cuts. If anybody wants to know how to do it. I can pass on the instructions. Just email me. Till next week. Stay tuned for pictures of my new studio. Where I have been having a great time. Bring on the Rum balls!!!!! Candyxx
