Pooches, pyrography and pizza

For part 2 of my catch-up, I thought I'd tackle January and February. I had no demos in these two months, which was probably just as well, as the time was dominated by snow and Molly, as we finally settled into a routine of walks and training with our new family member.

I did manage a bit of crafting, as several family members and friends had birthdays, and another friend asked for something combining Paris and ballooning for her sister's 21st birthday. At the start of February, I had lots of fun making a card like a pizza in a box for a friend addicted to round cheesy food. For the cheese and tomato, I mixed 3D gloss with acrylic paint for a glossy dimensional finish. The tub of sauce and the potato wedges are made from Fimo clay. I'd love to know what you think!

Also in February, my longest-standing friend Wendy came to visit for a couple of days of crafting, and I she introduced me to pyrography. It's lots of fun, and strangely addictive. It is a bit smelly for indoors in the winter though! I've used some alphabet and Basic Grey stamps on these plant labels to give me a design to burn in.
