Nikki Witch Returns!

Yey, i'm back! Can't believe i've not been blogging for well over an entire week... lol.
My Mum and step Dad have now gone home. Had a lovely time while they were both here.

Can't believe what everyone has managed to make and get upto in just one week. Its been nice reading them all today.

So, today i started on mini's again and put together this table. Not quite finished because a few little bits are baking but determined to actually finish something for once.
I've also put together the basics for another table and dresser.

Being me and having to have my fingers in everything i started making some gift tags. These are witch, wizard, spooky, fairy, princess and everything along those lines, oh yes and a gardening one too about mandrakes. This is for when my etsy shop is fully up and running and plan to have a gift wrapping section. The gift tags and what not will be similar to my work and include little potions, tags and labels etc.
Love this idea but will have to see how well they sell. I've seen some beautiful gift tags on etsy which of course being me had to have a go too.
Quite a lot of people buy from me to give to others as presents and i think gift tags to match will be a great idea. Mind you, dont think i have enough room or a clean enough table to go into making cards to match.
I've also been having a good nose at journals over there and thinking i may put a few of those together too.

Heres a link to my shop: Witch and Wizard Miniatures
I found a great banner for the shop so of course bought it. The lady played around and put the shop name on it for me and happy with the look. I wish i could do such things myself.

My little Niall is ill today and off school with a throat infection. He's now having a nice long late afternoon nap (wish i could too). I don't think it's as bad as he makes out. I think he has enjoyed his time off school and having me fuss around him.
I quite often make out i'm ill so hubs fusses around me while i finish i book i'm really into... lol.

  8. Oh my goodness! You apologize for being gone a week when two weeks to a month go by for me lately without my being able to work on mini's or blog about them! I show a few pix of the crop from our garden today so hope that helps explain my seeming slackness! I love your mini's here and absolutely love your new look to your blog. Cute little witchy! The tags are wonderful.
