609 - Mario Week - Fimo Clay

So when I saw the lovely Mollie over at Wild Olive was doing Mario Week I knew I had to get involved. Even though I was Sega kid as a child, I still love Mario and Mario related things (though if there was a Sonic week, I might get even MORE excited!).

Following on from my post yesterday, I decided to break out the Fimo clay for my Mario week post. Now, these are the first things I have ever made in Fimo clay and I'm the first to admit they don't look amazing. But like I said, it's my first shot so I'm hoping to get better.

I decided to make a Mario mushroom and a Piranha Plant as I thought they would be quite easy to make out of clay. I went for a flat look instead of 3D and decided to make them into fridge magnets by gluing magnets on the back after they had been cooked in the oven and then cooled.

So like I said, not drop dead amazing but I'm happy with them. I love trying new things, I'm glad I finally broke out the clay and dived into something different to take part in Wild Olive's Mario week. And now I know how it works and stuff, hopefully I can get better and make neater things in the future.

And here they are on the fridge!

608 - Fimo Ideas

So I've had my Fimo clay tools for a little while now and I've been looking for ideas of things I would like to make. So these are some lovely things I found on Pinterest, all of which I'm sure are outside my skill level!

So tomorrow I might actually have something awesome and fimo based to show you! Exciting!

604 - Valentine's Day Card

So for Valentine's Day this year I didn't make a pressie, but I still made a card. I like drawing cards for Donald because we have a very similar sense of humour and he draws too, so he likes them.

I found this drawing on Pinterest after much searching for a good Valentine's Day card.


Here's the link to the original.

I'm not one for the total soppy cards (as you can maybe tell).

601 - We're Going Down Down...

Last week something amazing happened. Fall Out Boy announced they were back to making music after being on a three year hiatus. Fall Out Boy are hands down one of my most favourite bands in the whole wide world. I was beyond happy when I found out they were back to making tunes.

To celebrate, I decided to make this embroidery that I've had pinned on my Pinterest board for ages now.

Here's the drawing I made the pattern from.

If you've no idea what this embroidery is, check out the Sugar, We're Going Down video and it might make a little more sense!

600 - Flower Cards

A while ago, a made this tiny flower card for my aunt's birthday.

Birthday card for my aunt.

It was part of a kit I got free in a magazine, so I decided to make the other two cards in the set so I could finally finished it off.



They are so cute and tiny, I love them. I'm trying to finish off all the card kits I have so I have a supply of cards when birthdays roll around.

597 - Wedding Cake Ideas

A wedding cake is one of those wedding expenses that I'm having trouble with. It's...a cake. Have you seen how expensive they are?!? Like it's honestly insane. While not all of them are through the roof mental prices, a lot of them are, especially some of the more "out there" ones that I've been looking at.

These are some of the best ones I've come across on Pinterest (though again, like my cake toppers, none of these are ones we're actually looking at! That would be telling haha!). I've not idea of the price of these ones, but after looking through wedding magazines, I'm guessing it's more than I want to pay!

I love the colours in this one. So lovely. If I could actually have any of them, I would defo have this one.

At the end of the day I want something that looks nice but is also tasty! After all that's the whole point.

596 - Welcome sign

I bought this welcome sign crewel embroidery when I was on holiday in like...2011 I think! Well I finally got round to making it! I've done embroidery before but with wool and not with embroidery thread, so it was nice to mix it up a bit. I'm well pleased with how it turned out, I think the colours are just lovely.
