Mini Haul

Happy Sunday Crafties.

This morning I’m going to be sharing a mini haul with you.

001-miniHaul

I’m slowly stocking up on supplies for my polymer clay sculpting.

My end goal is to be to able to do whatever technique my little heart desires when it comes to polymer clay.

I have the duel goal of being able to sculpt really beautiful creations at an expert level too.

A big goal but not unattainable. I believe my ability to work on a 2D scale gives me a little advantage when it comes to seeing how shapes fit on a 3D scale.

In my haul I got:

3D puffy paints (mostly for detailing on wings, but I know they will come in handy all over) and I plan on getting more colors soon.

Strong round magnets: I use these on the tins that hold my tools. They are great for sticking my clay blades to. Easy to reach but out of harms way.

I have an obsession with glitter. If its shiny and colorful I want it in my stash. So glitter paints was really the next step. (haha) But I will also be using these acrylics to work on my clay projects.

The little treasure chest: I saw a pin on pintrest; a tiny dragon curled up on a treasure chest. So when I saw the little box I thought I’d do my own version of the pin I saw.

All of these were bought from Herannies in Littleton Manor. They don’t have a website. (Something I think they should look into) but their store is huge and they have a good selection of craft-supplies. Nothing like in other countries.
(What I would give for a Michael’s or a Joann’s) But good by SA standards.

I also bought a pair of acrylic knitting needles in 10mm size. Not for my knitting, crafties.

I’ll be showing you what I did with those next week.

Happy crafting,

Genevieve.

Mini Haul – and Yorkie space issues

Hi Crafties,

Happy Monday! I hope you are all having a great day. Happy Easter too, for those of you who celebrate 🙂

I have a mini haul to share today and I’m quiet impressed because I got three things I really needed for my craft room for just over R150 (zar for those of you who don’t know a Rand is South African)

I got masking fluid for a steal of a deal. The other masking fluid that I’ve picked up and put back on the shelf twice is from a stationary store in Centurion mall, and its Daler Rownee they want R200 plus for a small bottle. OUCH. Thats a lot of money. I found the Dala masking fluid at PNA at Centurion Lifestyle Center for R45. HUGE difference.

I haven’t or rather, didn’t have any charcoal pencils and this was the most expensive piece of my haul at R102 also from PNA. But its Derwent and there are three grades or charcoal pencil and one white tinted one (thats what I was really after)

The last thing is a brush that I wanted after I saw this mini tutorial on youtube explaining how to do white hair. The technique blew me away. I never would have thought to do it like this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26VlD_Yfk_Q the words GOB SMACKED come to mind.

Now for the Yorkies space issues.

I LOVE MY DOGS! Can’t stress that enough. I have 3 Yorkie boys and one Pekingese baby girl.

I lost my Yorkie girl to the big dog next door and I will never get over that.

But the girl currently hogging my desk is my mom’s baby, Savanah. She’s visiting with me while my mom goes to visit with my beautiful new niece. But Savvy is NOT a happy baby. She wont get off my desk or leave me alone because she’s scared I leave her too. So typing is an interesting activity right now. *laughs*

Have a happy day Crafties.
