Aug 13 2010 - Shop open!

Hey guys! Just a quick update here. I have just opened my first Etsy shop! My clay crafts are finally made available for sale through Etsy, so if you like what you see, why not grab them? Most of my items are OOAK and I’m not even sure if I want to reproduce some of the designs, heh. Right now I have only phone charms and rings for sale there, but you’ll see more in the future. The near future.

Just a quick look of what I have for sale:

I’m tempted to wear some of them, but I already have more than enough for use. Ugh, I can’t believe I’m easily tempted by my own works. Haha!

Well, that’s it I guess. I’ll have another post up soon once I’m done with the pictures!

Aug 07 2010 - Being a cheapskate

I love shopping at the 100yen stores and dollar shops. They have a wide variety of stuff that are sold at low prices, and you can be a shopaholic without troubling your wallet.

If there is a Daiso in your vicinity, or the online store offers shipping to your country, raid them.

Bento cutters in animal shapes. They are like cookie cutters, but they are made specifically for cutting stuff like nori (seaweed), cheese, rice. But I guess you can use them to cut cookie dough. And I use them to cut clay.

Craft magnets. Stick one behind your sweets and they become fridge magnets! Most awesome. My refrigerator is actually full of sweets right now because of this.

Erasers in different colours. You are probably wondering what erasers have got to do with sweets deco. Well, I use them to make this…

…candy sprinkles! Just cut them up in fine pieces, and you can decorate your doughnuts and cupcakes with it. And of course, your finished works will smell like fruits too. Scented erasers are my favourite stationery.

Now, these play a big part in my sweets making, especially pastries. Foundation sponges are very useful, let me show you how:
