Valentines day pinatas

 For many years I've thrown a valentines day party for single friends and any couples without any better plans. These piñata hearts are a perfect addition. Although my favourite red one will be hanging up in my room. Even I think its too pretty to smash and I'm normally the one saying 'just take the bat and hit it as hard as you can, trust me you'll enjoy it'.

Each heart is handmade and therefore unique so sizes and shapes are approximate. 

The white rose heart piñata has a contrasting black background. It measures around 50cm at its widest point and would cost £40 including postage. Discounts are available for multiple orders.
The black heart is a very simple design and would therefore cost around £20-30 (including postage) depending on the complexity of the order.  They're also available in different materials as well as styles. I'm hoping to add a furry leopard print prototype very soon! As well as a sample with a ribbon tail.
I generally have a few spares and cancelled orders that I'm happy to sell off at a reduced rate. As each one is listed on sites such as etsy, folksy and ebay I'll keep you updated on the blog, twitter, myspace and facebook accounts.

Furniture repairs and other papier mache projects

You can buy these storage boxes from ikea that look like crates. They're easily broken which is not ideal when you've children around!

I've got fed up of having to repair mine so this time I've tried using papier mache pulp to hold it together. It took several days to dry and I'm used to using strips of paper rather than pulp so it now looks like the bench is held together with spit wads.

I've only just put it together and its a little creaky to sit on. Only time will tell if the papier mache filling works. 

This is my other current papier mache project. Its a marble box. Or rather the base of one. It will probably take weeks to dry. Its possibly 5/6th attempt as I kept getting impatient and trying to have a better look. If this one falls apart its going to be a long time before I can bring myself to start again!
