Some more new stuff and what on earth did I do before die cutting?

Hello! I have been working my newish Sizzix Big Kick so hard - I'm hoping it won't go on strike but hey, it's pretty low tech (good news for me!) It's amazing and I really think my work has improved a lot using it. What do you think?

Here are some items made using the die cutter:

Oh, and I got a new shop banner - Check it out! I reckon it looks great.

Record sale time!

Made these little crackers last night and listed them this morning. They sold in half an hour! I think that's a record for me. They are cute though!

I had a fab time today walking with my school friend Serena (and her gorgeous little dog, Billy!) in the park. Thankfully the rain held off - it's been so wet recently! We had a great chat and catch up.
Well, back to the felt food making... I do love my job!!

More custom orders and new items!

Here are some of the things I have been working on lately:

Huge custom order: (loved every minute of it too!)

Little pocket bread with fillings (the felafel is cute, yes?)

And re-vamped the felt chocolates I began on Etsy with:

Now I've got to get ready for Christmas and my next Hong Kong trip! Yes, my mother and I will be heading back to Hong Kong in October for some Christmas shopping. Yipeee!!! Can't wait....

I'm such a bad blogger ;( ... but at least I was on TV!

I have just been so very busy! Custom orders for everyone (well, so it seems!!) Here are a couple I have been doing:

This is a felt birthday cake for a special little girl.

A lunch for another lucky little girl!

Also, something terribly exciting happened! One of my aprons was on national TV! Yes, that's right. The story is that I bought some fabric on Ebay about 18 months ago and made a toddler apron out of it. It is really cute fabric and I e-mailed the lady I bought the fabric from with the link to the Etsy listing. Then she bought the apron. I got an e-mail a few weeks ago saying that she was going to be on TV the next day and she was taking the apron to show. The segment can be seen here. I was very surprised! If you are reading this, Janey, thank you so much! Someone did contact me to see if I could make another one and I had just enough fabric. Here it is:

Stay tuned for more custom order photos and maybe more TV appearances??
