I love jewellery making but whilst I am imaginative and make fun mixed media pieces I am not very talented at silverwork. This limits the pieces I can actually make but I have a sketchbook full of ideas! (If I could find it!)Margaux Lange’s silverwork is beyond perfect though. I would very much like someone to buy me this. (and while you’re at it you could get me this.) Her blog is wonderful, it is full of pictures of her workbench covered in various bits of Barbie’s body. 

I am always jealous of other people’s work because I can never be like that. I’d like to be able to do every style. It’s hard finding your own style and what your ‘thing’ is. I love indie stuff and punky stuff and cute stuff and everything inbetween. But trying to do them all at once leads to a bit of a mess. I am wondering if it will click one day and I will discover what art it is I am good at. For now here’s another Paint picture:

WordPress helpfully create a journal entry for you but it is nonsense so I have to edit it. I have decided I want to have a proper craft blog. Unfortuantly my camera is broken so it will be a blog with few pictures for a while.

Today I found these things called Pixelblocks. I totally want some, it’ll be easier than doing a Mario cross stitch. 

I am currently trying to do a piece of art a day for this I am currently 6 days behind because I have been quite unwell but I am quite pleased with how I have done any wayl. I have being trying to teach myself it is more important to get something DONE than to expect it to be perfect.

I also have a hideous amount of crochet and knitting to do and I am currently working on making a dollhouse for my Bratz and Barbie dolls. (Eventually I shall have a Pullip and Blythe too.)

So this post isn’t just my waffling here is an elephant I made in Paint. I have a bit of an obsession with the curvy edged square from Paint.
