Winter is officially here! I do love Winter... I usually go into hibernation and when I can, cozy up on the couch watching movies... but the reality is, I can't do that all Winter, even if I moan and groan about not being able to do it LOL.
I guess a good thing about Winter is that it is a good excuse to stay indoors, keep warm and craft the day away.
What are your favourite indoor activities to do in Wintertime?
This month in my studio...
I have a few projects on the go... I think I am like most crafters: too many ideas and projects half started and not enough time in the day to get them all done. Have a sneak peek photo of one of the projects below... I know it's not clay related but it is really cool! Later on, it will have my clay creations on it.
Any guesses what I am working on?
I have had a busy couple of months creating tutorials for Createalong.com and creating new stock for a local Artisan collective store in Secret Harbour of Western Australia called Cat and Moon Alchemy -The collective. So proud to have my Enchanted Items in-store amongst other talented creators. You will find all sorts of beautiful handmade goodies from stunning jewellery, and aromatic skincare to trendy home decor pieces and everything in between... I even spotted gorgeous designed cookies that look too good to eat. If you are in the area, love for you to come and support the local small businesses.
Cat & Moon Alchemy Collective store Located in Secret Harbour Square - Shopping Center
420 Secret Harbour Blvd & Cnr, Warnbro Sound Ave, Secret Harbour WA 6173
I also have opened up for custom orders again... I have been working on a couple of them, over the last couple of weeks, including Tooth Fairy Mushroom House Trinket Jars. They are made from polymer clay, surrounding a glass jar with a mushroom cork top to seal your trinkets inside, so no cheeky goblin can get inside to pinch the treasures. There are lots of magical little details in these houses, including vines, flowers and of course Ladybird critters to let the Tooth Fairy know of any wobbling teeth 🐞
Pink Tooth Fairy Mushroom House Trinket Jar is now available at my online shop.
If you would like a custom piece designed and made please feel free to contact me via my socials or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Been a bit quiet on my blog/newsletters lately... the days have been flying past and have been sidetracked creating but not sharing what I have been getting up to... Sorry... but I am here now to share a few tutorials that I have created last month.
One of them is this Sun-Ray Pendant.
I had fun creating this pendant, I was inspired by sunny days and reminiscent of the warmth of the summer days gone... This pendant has a golden shimmer that reflects in the sunshine... I used the Sun silkscreen from Createalong.com to get the print on it. It is such a cool design to use and has endless possibilities to create different things.
Find how to create this pendant at the link below...
The second tutorial is of a pair of funky, mystical earrings, which I called Crystal and Moon Earrings because of the amazing silkscreen - Crystals and Moon from Createalong.com
I had fun creating these earrings, I even had some design help from the Enchanted Items VIP members in the styling of what shape I was going to use etc. These have a nice pop of colour with the mystical design and when the light hits them you can see shimmers of colour in different areas.

I will be a bit quiet on my socials and claying, just because I have a few big jobs ahead of me. I am clearing out and painting areas in my house that are in desperate need of an update... just simply because it has been bothering me for awhile now Lol. I am now got the motivation to do it... I am sure I will be regretting it later on while doing it, but I will be very happy once it's done.
Have you got areas in your home that you have been wanting to bring new life to and renovate?
Thank you so much for reading and hope you enjoy a glimpse into my little world...
