Our Creations

These are the results of Jamie and my efforts from the previous blog entry.

First Jamie's creations:

Jamie made a lovely clock from a button and clock face cut-out (on the wall), a fancy wall clock with a background of William Morris wallpaper and a copper butterfly and a lovely strawberry cake complete with a strawberry in the middle.

I made a mantel clock and a vase from fimo as well as a button clock. All I can say is it is going to take a bit of time to get my mini-making skills honed again, although I am quite pleased with the vase.

As for the experiment with the air-dried clay bonsai pot, I got a bit rough handed with the pot which stuck to the tile it was drying on after I had put some gloss sealer on it and it crumbled into many pieces. I'll have to start again from scratch. Still, another lesson learned.

As I said to Jamie, it is okay to have failures. They are the steps you take on the way to learning new skills.


  1. I've just linked through to your blog. Lucky you to have a daughter to share your passion, and a talented one too. My granddaughter shares mine, but alas she lives in Canada, so we don't get to do much together. Keep on mini-ing! --

    1. Thank you. I will have to show Jamie your comment in the morning. She will get a kick out of being mentioned.
