Stupid Sock Creatures


the kids'n'i've had tons of fun making these over the weekend - modelled on John Murphy's Stupid Sock Creatures - he has an etsy shop too - gosh he's so hilarious with his stories about each creature!!!
they are so quirky and fabulous, and have instant personality. we just got the book outta the library, scrounged some odd socks, an old pillow, and my buttons tin and started creating...

... i'm about to dream up an *Angel* one with Woozie's toe socks (for the wings)!!!!!

i have finally managed to apply nail polish in a straight line across the top of my toenails, without having to rely on the little stickers lol
and i am feeling very accomplished and très français and oh! so summery having such pretty toes X

christmas belles

yeah, it's the same title as my blog post at kate5kiwis lol (you can read the whole story over there if ya like, or not!!! bwahahahahahahaha)
cos this morning i have a very uncreative pre-espresso headache, am waiting for hubby to get home from his saturdaymorningemergencydashtowork, thinking i'm gonna have to turn the machine on and up my blood-caffeine ratio.
right then
*peering through haze*

i have got out my wire and suitcase full of beads again and made these two delish concoctions for a Virtual Friend *grin* in FRANCE!!!!!

paua pearl necklace
it took me ages and many tries to get the paua one perfect, i tried wiring a paua flower like the one i made a year ago, but my original supplier has shut up shop and so i had to buy some paua beads at twice the price and they wouldn't work the same, so decided to change the whole style of the necklace, i made it into a miniature version of lizard's, cos it's for a thirteen year old girl. (details, details, always details)

and then i made this

christmas crème brulée necklace
which looks absolutely fabulous IRL (if i say so myself lol), it catches the light beautifully.

and now i'm off to concoct a billion little Christmas things, cos this year is another handmade kiwi christmas.
what are you girls doing/making for pressies this year???
