New inspirations

Hi Everyone!
Thought I better update you on the latest from Little Handfuls! 

I've been floundering a bit lately, a lot of the shows I do over here in New Zealand just don't go well, no one wants to part with their money (can't blame them for that!) and while they have high praise for my work I still end up packing it all up and  taking it all home at the end of the show!  Which is really expensive I might add! lol

So I've been trying to think what I can do to create a range of less expensive items which appeal to more people than bear collectors which we don't seem to have a lot of over here.

For some reason I stumbled across some monster cartoons, and those cute pics, combined with the pile of christmas balls I had sitting on my desk got me thinking.  The result is this crazy collection of little monsters.





What I intend to do is to have a whole lot of them at the next show, and be able to personalise them for people.  So if you want a couple to hang over your car mirror, you just pick the two you like and I will string them together while you wait!  If you want one to clip onto your childs pram I can do that too, maybe your older child would like one on a bungy cord so he can play with it!  I will make mini ones too, so if you want a keychain, or brooch, necklace, it's all possible! :o)

Hope you like them!

Happy crafting,
Liza

I have to say that those are the CUTEST little monsters that I've ever seen!! I'm not one that is much into monsters, but even I would buy one of those sweeties. By the way, will you be selling them on the internet?!

Warmly,
Cheryl

Gosh I'm sorry, I got these lovely comments ages ago and haven't been in to moderate them until now! So glad you liked my little monsters, they are quite fun and a bit of a change. It's neat to see peoples reactions to them at shows, the older kids love them and usually so do the Dads! :o)
