On my desk, wednesday

Thanks everyone for letting me know about the etsy mini...or mini etsy. :) Then it is just me or our server. The husband refuses to acknowledge that there might be anything wrong with said server or computer, which means that it is up to me to start touching stuff..pretending I know what I'm doing. Which I don't. That will scare the husband into doing something.

Ok, charms charms. When you are asked to send samples of a certain dimension for a promotional bag (200 of them, although I won't be in each one. I run out of biz cards!), you think...suuuuure. In a month? of course. And then a week before the deadline you think..and now? what am I going to make? Can't make 20 scarfs...20 brooches? 20 necklaces?? mmmh no. So, 20 charms, needlefelted, wet felted, wired and embelished by yours truly. For your bag, cell phone or even as a pendant because I made a nice hook for hanging. By the way, I need proper jewellery making tools because my fingers hurt from pushing wire!

So here: not yet embellished...



All packed and ready to be sent to headquarters in Germany.


And now, to finish attaching a million seed beads to an organza super huge nunofelted shwal/wrap/pashmina. This is for a gift for Sinterklaas.
This post is too long already, tomorrow children, a lesson on germanic traditions: Sinterklaas. Don't say this blog isn't an anthropological gem! So rich in knowledge! :)
