Mushroom Garden

Remember the mushroom lamp I made? I wanted to make another, better one. I had been planning to make one with little fimo fairies, for no one in particular, but the opportunity arose to make a gardening one for a friend, (who is a gardener.)



There's gnome-Paul, watering the mushrooms with his watering can.


What a derpy little caterpillar.


You can't really see here but this ladybird was in the oven too long and his eyes look a little blood shot. I guess you could say he was baked!


 Paul with his impressive beard, hanging out, watering the plants...


Those plants need a lot of water, here he is still as night falls on the garden. Check out the two dorky little teeth on that worm who is watching Paul most intently.


 We didn't really get a good picture of the caterpillar's legs in day time, but here they are at night.

Smug mousie

This mouse has a big heart and a lot of love to give.



This guy languished for quite a while with a fully formed head, and a skeleton bottom half. Note to self: don't give them faces until you are done stabbing them, especially between the legs. I almost heard the little yelps.
Look at that smugly happy face though! I gave him more chubby cheeks than previous mousies. He's a big smiler.


Standing up with his little fluffy tail and his big belly.


Mouse bum. If you like to see that sort of thing...

Little Tiny Dragon

Last Sunday I was woken up at about 4am by a party that had started as a kid's birthday party 12 hours earlier and degenerated. In the wee hours of the morning, snuggled up in my duvet, by the light of the chinese lamp, little tiny dragon was born. He, too, was very sleepy.



His arms are bendable, so if he fancies changing his blanket... he can.


And notice how much more professional my photos are in this post! (Because I didn't take them, of course)

A lamp and a window

So, my craft unit came packaged with loads of really sturdy v-shaped cardboard to protect the edges. Seemed a shame to throw them away (hoarder-alert!), so naturally I made a mario lampshade for my box room.

 It is not perfect but that's okay, the whole project cost me £1.10 (for a sheet of black felt). And the joy of having a mario lampshade in the room might even make me consider sorting out the massive shelves of fabric in there. (Probably not.)



Also, stained glass window as requested by my parents!
