I'm really sorry for not blogging for over a month! I've been incredibly busy with college work and my Dad has unfortunately got very ill so obviously he's my main concern right now.
Its just been a bit hectic but hopefully over the Christmas holidays I'll be finding more wonderful handmade creations to blog about! =]
And remember, do leave me a comment if you want me to advertise your online shop in this blog.
Merry Christmas. =]

This online shop isn't officially open but when I saw the blog of sneak peeks of what will be avaliable to buy I got really excited and had to blog!
My awesome friend Kirstie is running this shop and she is extremely talented with Polymer Clay. I have seen all these little cakes and believe me they look so much more amazing when they're right in front of you! As you can see from her pictures all the pieces of cake/pie fit together!
Also as I've already seen them I can reassure you that they are made in the highest quality. No finger prints, scratches, dents or marks and she spends a long time paying attention to detail to make them look realistic and pretty!
I like how she has picked a popular theme in jewellery and completely transformed it into a "gothic" style. I can see her jewellery becoming very popular =]
She's working on the website at the moment however if you become a follower of her blog, you will see that she is happy to do custom orders while the site is being made. =]
Please do check her out!

These plushies are so cute!
Featuring one character named Alfie who likes to dress up each day as different people. As you can see from above, you can find him dressed as a dinosaur, a ninja and even Batman's sidekick Robin! I admire how each photo has been shot to capture each personality of Alfie's characters :)
Other plushies to be found such as weather clouds with different personalities and Pies that are Pie-rates!
Fun, humourous and original plushies. Definitely go check the shop out!

I am now starting to update again. I have no excuse =p Just been a bit lazy the past week!
As you can see from the earlier post that I have written about the same shop again. If you've already been written about, I am very happy to do it again :) If you've got new products you want to show off or a sale/promotion then please contact me with all the details email@example.com :)
And of course, I am always looking for new online shops, just e-mail me with a link and tell me what you make. :)
My Folksy shop is back online so please have a snout ;D
That's about it!
Since I first blogged about Kawaii Boutique, Sam (the genius behind the store) has added more things to the website! A video page giving you lovely people tutorials on how to make certain things using Polymer Clay. Currently only one video is up which is about making cupcakes. Everyone loves cupcakes! Very useful if you're new to Polymer Clay. Happy Japanese Pop music in the background, so you feel like you're getting your groove on aswell as learning. xD
More beautiful jewellery has been added :) Lots of limited Halloween creations made just for October.. yeah, bit pointless telling you that NOW however, imagine all the goodies she'll make for Christmas!
Also check out the custom items page. :) The penguin necklace is adorable!
