Parcel in the Mail and Easter Comes Early

I got home from work today to find a parcel in the mail. I love getting parcels in the mail, especially when they contain a wonderful giveaway prize from Lisa of Mini Addictions. I recently won one of her 'mini supplies' giveaway prizes.

My prize was supplies for working with polymer clay including:

1 ~ Sculpey Translucent Clay 
1~ Sculpey Pearl Clay
3 ~ Packets of "Sugar" (Colored Sand) in Pink, Yellow & Green
1 ~ Packet of Daisy flowers
1~ Punch shaped like a Chick
1 ~ Craft Syringe
1 ~ 4 Piece Sculpey Tool Set
1 ~ Strawberry Cane
1 ~ Kiwi Fruit Cane
1 ~ Mini Acrylic Cutting Board

The little kiwifruit and strawberry canes are just wonderful as are the little daisies, which I have just noticed aren't included in the above photo. For a better look at the prize go to Lisa's blog:
Lisa's blog, Mini Addictions, is well worth checking out. Do go and visit.

I also love the tiny acrylic cutting board. Instead of using it for cutting polymer clay I think I will use it as a base for a grape and cheese platter.

I can't wait to really experiment with all these items and make some mini non-edible edibles.

I have struggled with motivation to do miniatures all this week but Lisa's parcel was just what I needed and I sat down tonight and made a little Easter basket using the chick punch and a couple of the daisies. I know it is a bit early for Easter but I just couldn't help myself.

The little rabbit is one I made some years ago. He is 5cm tall.

Well I'd better sign off and get the dishes done and into bed. I am off to a small miniature show tomorrow and will hopefully get some photos to show you.

Have a great weekend everyone.
