Day 170 of Arsing About!

Arsing about:

1) messing about, being a fool
2) doing nothing in particular for a long time
“What have you been doing all day?”
“Arsing about.”

 

I like to think I fall into the latter category however I haven’t been completely rubbish, my sister and I have been discussing my career prospects. No, no don’t worry…its good news. We think that I am amply qualified to be a professional Marshmallow Ploper. What’s that you ask? Well i would be the one plopping  the marshmallows in your hot chocolate…YEP!

Anyway, when I haven’t been creating highly specialised jobs to apply for I’ve been trying to make myself feel better with creating little bits and bobs.

First I made a paper whisk:

Nuff said really.

I’ve also discovered air drying clay which I’m not quite as excited about anymore as its actually really annoying to work with. I did get some nice jewellery out of it though, think they’d be better out of clay and the properly fired.

Made by Hand Wales 2012

Hello, I had a wonderful time on the weekend when I got the chance to visit the Made by Hand Contemporary Craft fair at Tredegar House, Newport. And this wasn’t your run of the mill W.I type arts and crafts either. It was work of the highest quality. I was completely in awe of the work that was there and im going to post some links below of the ones which really caught my eye.
