My number 101

It's my 101 th post today, let's have a creative celebration!

It's been a while since I've been posting, due to the busy work at the shop and due to the wonderful weather..
And also, I've been quite ill for a while. Had to take that awful anti-biotic. But I feel very good and energized now!

But here I am with some new stuff..

First of all here are two new necklaces I've made:

Two necklaces that can be worn together, or separately if one desires..

Pink Pearls Gallore

I've used chip-pearls with shell nacre, glass beads and really cool toothy pink pearls in shell.

The second one is made for Martin's sister:

The pearls are made of vintage cartoons (a kind of papier maché technique) and Swarovski crystals with tiger eye pearls.

I've also used some ceramic bright colored pearls in different sizes..

Now unto the new dolls that are almost finished, just need to embroider the face unto the head part of the dolls.
It's all still work in progress, because it takes much time, especially with my new technique which is adding hand stitch cross stitch patches to the body of the dolls.

This one is gonna be a present for a good friend of mine.. (she will be very happy)

I so love the fabric I've used for the legs.. it's very thick corduroy with a satin shine..

The fabric of the body part of the doll is woven Italian vintage fabric. (I just got one piece of this amazingly beautiful fabric with golden threads for the flower parts)

I'm not showing everything here, because it's not finished yet!

The second doll is a Tea Doll

I adore the fabric with the embroidered flowers on it..
And I've used little Tea Pot buttons.. yes sir!

This is a close up for the third doll, which is for the Autumn collection I'm working on.

I'm using my new found technique which is adding a patch of hand stitched cross-stitch. Which takes quite a lot of work. The cross-stitch patch takes almost 4 hours to finish.

I handstitched the cross stitch patch on Aïda 14 count..

As this is my 101th post I'm feeling like showing you some things inside my studio..

My little wall of yet-to-be-used-in-projects cross-stitch miniatures.

I think I'm making a bookmark of this little side-project.

I love salads.. And I love the empty plastic bowls I use for stacking my creative goodies.

My favorite salad of all time, the Pom-Pom Salad! Deliciously creative! And it makes me smile when I look at it.

My box of threads. I know it's supposed to be for buttons, but I've allready got my button box.. So.. (I think it's very suitable for any kind of creative goodies..)

Bye now! I'm gonna relax with a good movie tonight.. Just me and a glass of wine to compliment the Mousaka I'm having for dinner..

Remember ; A pom-pom a day, keeps the doctor away!


  1. The pom-pom salad made me giggle. I think I'll order one of those for lunch tomorrow!

  2. Congratulations on post #101 and lovely creations as always.

  3. I love the pom pom salad! Yum!

  4. I love the pom-pom salad! I just came across a bag of pom-poms in my room (I'm not sure why I have them and definitely don't know what I'll do with them) and now I have an option as to what to do with them. I was going to put them in mason jars, but I love the way the salad bowls stack!
