My cloth arrived!!!

I designed a Halloween themed cloth pattern with my dog as star on it :D
I've done some Ronny clothing shopping last autumn when I was in the States. And my future mother-in-law got Ronny a little devil costume. And this is the result!
I will make a Halloween bag out of it. And probably a new scarf for Ronny!

Long Time...

Wow, it has been a looooooooooong time since I posted something on here. The reason for that: I am damn busy, lol.
Teaching has been so stressful in the past few months that I hardly had time to create anything new.
My jewelry workshop at school is still going well. The new school year started and the workshop will continue in two weeks. But while the kids have been busy creating lots of neat key chains and necklaces, I couldn't create anything myself.
Well, of course there is school vacation, too. During my Easter and summer vacation I've spent most of my time in America with my boyfriend, lying on the couch watching stuff like Bridezilla while he was at work. That helped a lot recharging my batteries.
But I didn't have much inspiration to create things I might want to sell.

Nevertheless, Easter was a good time to make some presents for my family. (I will update with pictures later, because I haven't taken any, yet).
My mother and my future mother-in-law both got a necklace with a glass heart charm, my boyfriend got a key chain made of wooden beads and metal, just the way he likes stuff, for myself I made a hair assessory similar to his key chain, and my sister got a necklace with a matching bracelet. I also made some additional key chains, because I was in the mood for it, and a mobile phone charm for my phone.

Oh, and my boyfriend's great aunt is living in a retirement home and all the old ladies started to put out door wreaths. So she needed one, too. But we couldn't find a pretty one at Hobby Lobby, so we just bought a plain wreath and some flowers and I made one for her myself. :D

All the other ladies were jealous of that wreath!

Then there came another long period of stress at school. And all my creativity seemed to be gone when I was back in the states. All I was able to accomplish was a steampunk dragon for my boyfriend. He gave me a polymer clay dragon book for valentine's day, but because I was in England for 3 weeks I didn't get to make him one before I came to see him for Easter. So he got it in summer and was able to choose his favourite colours.

I don't know how much I will be able to create in the next few weeks. I've just passed one of the final exams at teacher training, but there are 4 more to come until November. But I already have some thrilling ideas, especially for Halloween. Let's hope that I'll be able to realize at least a few of them.

So much from me. Pictures will be added to this post as soon as I have them. :D
