A sweet easter bunny


These cute little bunnies got almost sold out so fast! 
I really like this colour match ( light salmon plus pale mint ), and I think I'm going to make a few more experiments.. well, at least I would, if only I could find the time! : )

Hope you have a great weekend,

big hugs,

Mij

Artisans I love: Ilaria from airali handmade


Look at this little crocheted bear.. ain't she cute? 
Such a sweet smiling face, and the most girlish flowery dress.. 
I think I'm in love! : )
Both the bear, the dress and all of the delicious little things in this post come from the crafty hands of the talented Ilaria. Her blog - where is the Wonderland? - is such a great collection of gorgeous stuff that it was hard for me to choose what to repost here. She writes in Italian, but whatever your mother language is, you will be amazed by her lovely and colorful pics!
And if you're interested, some of her amigurumi patterns are available here.
Enjoy!   : )

The kitten and the roses


The word "No" means nothing to a cat. 
They only distinguish between "things that look funny" and "things that don't".
This cute white kitten makes no exception, and unfortunately a mug full of delicate rosebuds looks like a very interesting thing to him. That's why you see him in the middle of the flowers, happy and rascal just as much as a kitten can be! : )

The candy line


Do you ever feel the need to try something completely different from your usual style?
I do, and it was the case of these little jewelry pieces.. a lot of tiny scales, several pastel shades, basic chubby shapes and a candy-like final look. : )
The first feedback I got about them wasn't very nice - it was from my mum, who actually saw them in pics and didn't like them at all. Still, I enjoyed so much making them that I decided to go on with this kind of design.. at the moment, the colorful bracelet has already found a new owner, while the tiny brooches had a quite good welcome on Etsy too. : )
I really hope to be able to make more of them.. just can't get tired of mixing different polyclay colours to see which shades I'm going to get!  :D

This is also the first springtime weekend, so I wish you all to spend it in the funniest way!
Big hugs,

Mij

The bunny and the bow


Maybe you have a favourite little doll.
Maybe your doll has a favourite doll too.
And maybe your dollie's doll needs a doll too! :D

Just wanted to give an idea of how tiny this little bunny girl is - less than half an inch in height, ears included!!

I'm back!


I come from the most stressing weeks - stomach flu, full time study and a lot of university duties&bureaucracy - and the worst is yet to come, I fear! :D

I'm sorry for having abandoned the blog for a while.. I promise I will try to update it as soon as I can! : )

Just wanted to wish you all a lovely weekend, and to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day with something green from my latest creations.. what about a layer of green moss and a mint ribbon? And yes, there's a tiny kitten laying between them.. hope he will bring a lot of good luck! : )

A tiny handsculpted robin and a miniature leaf charm.. so easy, and yet so cute!
The perfect little pendant to wait for the first sunny spring days!  : )

Lace booties


And just as I promised, here's the fairy outfit for my little jointed doll!  : )

She's wearing a felt dress (completely hand-sewn, and embellished with lace, beads and a tiny silk bow), a pair of handmade lace booties, with hand-sewn beads on them, and a little floral crown, featuring a mix of beads, felt leaves and flowers and a lovely lace bow.

Hope you will like her.. much more feminine this way, right?  ; )

A wooden fairy


I've been working on this little doll for quite a long time.
Her wooden body was originally a small art mannequin.
I replaced her head and hands with handsculpted polyclay ones, while she still has her original wooden feet.
I painted her with acrylic paints, glazed her eyes to make them brighter, and added soft woolen hair.. what do you think about the result?

This post is actually just a preview - more exactly, a collection of pics of the making of process. The dollie now has a complete outfit and even a tiny gnome to keep her company (you can spot him in the last pic)..
 tomorrow I will publish the rest of the pics!  : )
