WOYWW 85

Crazy desk day is here once more with the ever so crazy but lovely Julia waving us off from the starting line.
Here is the current condition of my desk,
Click for a bigger pic where you can read all the labelled things!!
If your a garden birdy watcher {and you didn't already know} be sure to sign up for the Big Garden Birdwatch 2011 on the 29-30th of Jan.
So i'm all set for some friendly plastic and studio clay embellishment making today, i figured i'd made all the molds now it was about time to put them to good use!
And here are the latest molds i made from the very cute hearts that my friend Alison send me
She made them out of something called 'Hearty' clay and boy is this stuff weird, unlike any clay i've ever known, its kinda foamy/spongy when dry, and it's ultra light too. Perfect for card embellishing when you don't want the weight of a polymer clay piece.
You just know i gotta get me some of this stuff lol
***
I've had quite a productive few days art wise, most of which i can't share as its future CT work, always a good idea to get ahead when you can! But i did manage to make one piece of art for my one world one heart giveaway which i might show a sneaky peek of before the event if i get chance.
***
Right off to hop round some desks... Made it to about 70-80 last week, so might start from 75 today and try and hit the higher numbers for a change.

Hearty clay is fab stuff, its like those 'pink prawn' sweets I used to have as a kid. I like to colour it using a permanent black marker and then pick up teh highlights with metallic rub on's - looks fab!

Congrats from 70-80 last week to number 1 this week. Well done. Your desk always looks like a hub of activity and I would love some sneak peajks. Little hearts are very sweet., does the clay air dry or heat dry. I burnt some clay things when I was trying to speed up the drying process!! Ooops.

Judie aka Craftymess said...

Love the bird survey idea...have registered before I comented here even ...bet I have no birds visiting that day xx

Do a every 5 look as I just can't do them all.
Love your dinky heart moulds.

triciasconfetti said...

You must have started early to be No 1. I do a every 5th look so never actually do them all but get different ones every week. Good fun - love WOYWW.
Dinky little moulds for the hearts.

Good luck with the birdwatch on Sunday. We shall be joining you up in deepest Worcestershire. You have so many things on the go, all at once, and they all look fascinating.

oneoff said...

I think I spy a minxy monkey or two! I have my bird chart to the ready, although I tend to have to ID ours by song. They're loud, but shy and retiring! Intrigued by those hearts - need to investigate that one...

Mrs A. said...

No.1 spot this week I see. Looking round your desk reminded me that I have the little pg monkey too. Just gone and rescued him down off the shelf of bears and is now sitting beside computer. Also remembered that I bought a kit from the NEC show for making resin jewllery moulds. Tidied bag away and completely forgot about them. Next job go find em.

good to see you keeping so busy, after a major craft spurt am now having a bit of arid crafty moment, hence no WOYWW this week, only choc and cream soda on the desk, great new diet, LOL

——>Katie Bolinger said...

thanks for letting us snoop. That clay sounds perfect for card embellishing. Must look into that thanks again.

Barbara Mason said...

Desk is looking very busy....Those hearts look great--can see some perfect pearls rubbed on them!!! What kind of blue moulding material do you use???

Sarah Anderson said...

pat said...

I love your hearts. That clay sounds like the Crayola clay. Easy to use and air drys. Fun!

Pauline said...

Great desk, and the clay hearts look fab, thanks for sharing.Pauline x

Lorraine said...

like your hearts..that hearty clay is a good idea..so many times my kids have made stuff out of air dry clay but then it cracks when its dry.

Cardarian said...

Number 1 aye??? When did you post?? At 3am in the morning ha, ha....it seems to be a bit of a race lately - I haven+t been near the top for ages - I just can't make it! Very nice hearts! I would like some more info on that material as I always have the problem with heavy embellishments!
Hugs,
Cardarian

Ali said...

That's a great looking desk.. lots of fab storage and stuff going on.

Lovely idea to make moulds from those cute hearts... am tempted to get hold of some friendly plastic and have a play myself! :D

Thanks for sharing.

RosC said...

The labeling is fun. Good productive desk. No 1 makes you the early bird alright. Good idea to have a way of spreading the visits.
Ros (158)...better next week.

Nicky said...

Lovely labels and like the ideas of making own hearts might have to give something like that a go never tried it before ~ Nicky 24

Lynne said...

Thanks for the info on the hearty clay will give it a go, only ever used Fimo. Great work space looks very creative.

Debs said...

Congrats on being #1 Minxy
love the hearts, yes that clay is a bit odd at first, but fun to use and very lightweight for posting!

Spyder said...

Well done on being #1 I'm soo late I'll be early for next week!
The hearts really do look good, specially if they are lighter, have to look out for the doughy-stuff.

Happy Woyww

Paula Gale said...

what a hub of activity. I've been spotting what you have the same as me - so far I can see that we both have a 3 tier cake stand and the lamp... poor me tho has no monkey.

#1 eh? how did you manage that?!

Love the hearts and the thought of playing with all that messy stuff.
