Closing doors and opening others

I love to blog, I want to blog, I need to blog! But where do I find the time to keep it up? I'm trying to use my time more efficient I decided to not post on this blog anymore. Instead I will give my other blog a make-over and post there in the future.

I will not close the blog so anyone can still read my ancient messages but if you would like to read something new please visit my other blog: Another Cosy Shop

So...byebye here and see you on the other blog!

I used to be a pipe cleaner

A pipe cleaner is a type of brush originally intended for removing moisture and residue from smoking pipes. 

But what if you don't smoke a pipe?
But do have a lot of pipe cleaners?
Crafters have the perfect solution:
By twisting and shaping these chenille stems it's possible to make the most wonderful things giving the pipe cleaner a total new function! 
Browsing the internet I came across the most beautiful creations ever.

I decided to have a go at it and after trying, plying and molding the first doggies came to life.
Here are a few of the creations I made.  No doubt more will follow. It's so much fun!

While I was taking pictures I could have sworn I heard them say:
 'Take all the pictures you want, but whatever you do, please keep us away from a pipe!" 

They are such softies!

Stocking up!

I was able to finish the miniature flowers I mentioned in my previous post AND some other 'springy' miniatures that were on my to-do-list. 

As I'm writing this I'm taking pictures so I can list them in my Etsy shop (hopefully) today. Gosh...I do sound busy, don't I?? 

Here's a little sneak preview of the new stuff being delivered to the shop.

As you can see the sun is really shining, how I love spring!
