i know i've been away for quite a while. so many things have happened, my brother's wisdom teeth surgery, middle bro is moving this week, and my wrist/thumb just didn't bode well for miniclay play. i tried working with some bigger items though (the mini rolling and conditioning simply freezes up the hands) and here are just some of them. :P

here's the baskets i made using an online tutorial i stumbled upon while surfing a few weeks back. I LOVE THEM! i'm not sure what language it is in (finnish maybe?) but the pictures speak for themselves.

i used some wire twisty packaging thing i found at daiso and some ecru coloured crochet thread i had leftover from my thread-related-craft-days....

also, made some acrylic items for the's undergoing a major overhaul furniture-wise as i've found that the white paint i have just isn't suitable for the modern-retro look i was going's just a teaser pic ;)

i kinda messed up on the sliding door bit, so it will only fit 1 door properly...but i don't care i think it looks cooler this way HAHA

also made a lamp out of a cheap $2 LED flashlight from's kind of big but it works out fine :) can't afford the USD$50 alternative right now ; ;

also made some one inch scale display stuff and some half-inch scale furniture for a half-inch scale bakery display...but i don't have much foods to fill it yet and hope to do so this week!
