Rosewater cupcakes with a chocolate Rosewater icing. Decorate heart sprinkles , perfect for this time of year. The cupcakes tasted very much of Turkish delight :)

Bird song

Another card made recently for a friends birthday. Made using some dove craft paper that was aged with distress ink. The boarder along the side was made using a Martha Stewart punch.

Card for a splendid friend

Here is a card I made the other week for one of my friends who is part of the local Steampunk society. The card was made using some paper from the chronology range, along with a tag I found in my craft room. Both  were aged using Tim Holtz distress inks.

2013 Roundup

I was a very quiet blogger in 2013 but that doesn't mean I didn't make anything. It was a particularly busy year in my life but I did take a few pictures of some fun things I made.

So here are some pictures:
From top to bottom and left to right: 
Bath Bombs made in a class in May
Fused Dichoric Glass done in a microwave kiln
A piece of jewelry I made in a steampunk style for a friend
My first piece of silver smithing made in a class in September

Of course I made much more than this including cards but I didn't take pictures of them so I can't share.
