Latest updates and
blog: Summer and creativity in England and at Furry Graphics.
News and Blog!
2010/07/21: I've continued with
my obsession with modelling clay and continued with a whole range
of High tea side dishes. The bunny family will probably have to
go on a diet when I'm finished :-) Suzy from Arizona in the States
have asked what kind of modelling clay I've been using, and the
answer is: Fimo model clay. If you're considering using it: Please
pay attention to that the clay is slightly toxic, and should not
been eaten (younger children/ pets) and definitely not put in the
oven at higher temperatures, than recommended, which I did after
misreading the instructions and confusing Fahrenheit with Celsius
I'll update later on with some pics, thanks so much everyone for
your lovely comments, please, keep sending
The bunnies are having a birthday party!
2010/07/11: Summer time is outdoor time, and I've taken a break
from scrapbooking and other indoors project, but I couldn't resist
to do some model clay toys the other day for my youngest daughters
The dollhouse is more than 10 years old, but still functional and
are currently housing a family of adorable bunnies. They have a
bric-a-brac variety of furniture, some crafted and other picked
up from flee markets.
Yesterday I bought some Fimo model clay and today, before I knew
it, the entire family (including my not-so-crafting partner)
were involved in creating small objects for the bunnies. We made:
A strawberry birthday cake (with candles), a tray of biscuits and
singe biscuits, a fruit bowl,
a book and chocolate cake! Not to bad! (And waaay cheaper and more
fun than just buy it from the toys shop.)
I'll hope that will inspire you too! Happy Crafting!
2010/06/15: Summer is really here now in England, the weather has
been great... Almost too nice, since it's nicer to be outdoors than
doing scrapbooking and art projects indoors. I always find the summer
to be less creative and usually I'll take a break from indoor projects
and instead I tend to do more photography and painting outdoors
instead. Luckily the evenings are still here and I'm currently doing
the last digital scrapbooking paper for the Vintage Collection,
which will hopefully be finished by the end of the week, so don't
forget to check it out later!
2010/05/31: It has been quite here at Furry Graphics for a couple
of days, but it has been quite busy around here. We have had a friend
coming over to visit us, so naturally there has been quite a lot
of sight seeing, long walks and talks, great food and everything
else, but not so much time over to update the website.
Today I've update with a new craft project which I did a week ago
for my oldest daughter's best friend:
How to Remake a Tissue
Box into a Get Well Soon Present.
I'll show you step by step how to create a wonderful get well present,
which may not only be used to wipe you nose,
but may also be used as a little reminder that you have a creative
and loving friend waiting for you to get well,
so that you can come out and play soon...
Get your paper ready and get crafty!
2010/05/26: Just a short update before I've to start cooking dinner
for my starving family. I've updated with
Free Printable Lemon Labels for home made marmalade or lemon
Decorate your cooking with these primitive country inspired illustrated
it will make your jars more pretty (and, who knows? Maybe they even
it's said that you "eat with your eyes" as well, so why
Happy cooking everyone!
2010/05/24: Yes! The Elegant collection is finished and online!
My very second collection is complete! Digital
Lace Paper backgrounds in 300 dpi is available now!
Also I'm quite sore from yesterdays punting session. Who on Earth
would believe gliding down a river would actually result in being
sore and stiff the day after? Well, there you go!
Monday morning, and the War of The Wardrobe has started with our
youngest (and most stubborn!) daughter. How do you explain to a
4-year old that she cannot wear a silk party dress to kindergarten?
Any suggestions? Mail me!
2010/05/23: Oh, I have just finished my latest collection: The elegant
collection's latest member is:
Digital Lace Paper Backgrounds! One of my favourite backgrounds,
which is just perfect for
romantic or vintage scrapbooking layouts and would be just wonderful
for baby or wedding themes!
I hope you like them too!
I'll try to add them to My Shop tomorrow or so, but right now:
It's time to put my youngest daughter to bed after a long, long
sunny day with Sunday punting along the Thames...
2010/05/21: Just a short update before me and my youngest daughter
are heading out in the lovely sunny weather
outside for a picnic in the forest! Yesterday we made Paper
which I documented with my camera and yesterday evening I created
an easy step-by-step description
on how to make them. Paper art and embellishment is really not that
can save you quite a lot of money if you make it yourself (and be
proud about it!), plus it's fun! Use them for card making, scrapbooking,
gift tags and more!
