Bit quiet from me for a little while as computor has fried itself and I'm popping by from laptops etc. Hopefully I will be up and running again with new drives in the new year again ...meanwhile wishing everyone all the best for the new year! XXX

Pet Feeds and stock for Peacock's Pet Shop!

I have had great fun today creating some 'stock' for my daughter's little pet shop to go with the figures. I'm pleased with the dog leads, the hay bales and the fish holiday feeding blocks made from bits of eraser! I have been making some shelving and wall hanging 'hooks' etc to put it all on display so she can just stick them to the walls of the shop. I'm hoping this will inspire her to make some more things herself...those lovely little bone shaped chews in fimo for example I might just mention, and see what happens....

'Real' toys for a change!

A couple of figures...Mr and Mrs Peacock who will live above the shop and run Peacock's daughter's doll house creation! They have (mostly) removable clothing which has been a new challenge, and so have got to be a bit broad about their middles with all that spare material in the extra seams, elastic etc...but never mind ;0)
They have aprons for the kitchen and shop, and some of their clothes come off so they look like they have nightwear for bedtime...just looking at him now his head looks a bit chilly so I think I will make him a nightcap too LOL
Well they are for Christmas so shhhhh!!
Happy Christmas everyone! XXXXX

Making an Exhibition of myself ! 2 lovely things to announce!
Firstly the new AIM magazine for december is out, and I am thrilled to say that I have a doll on the cover, my Scrooge, and there is a feature on me inside and lots more pictures of my figures. I'm extremely honoured, and grateful to all the magazine team for this wonderful opportunity!
AIM also have joined blogland so to follow there:
The second thing is a little exhibition of my work in Brackley Library. This will be open throughout december, with closures around christmas, so if by some strange coincidence you happen to find yourself in South Northamptonshire this month, you could see some figures 'in the flesh' LOL
