Working on Brooms


This will be my only blog post for quite a while. Need to knuckle down and get on with finishing loads of work. I'll pop back in May just before the show and let you all know i'm still alive and kicking, lol.
Here's what i'm working on this evening - Just brooms that i'm keeping quite simple and some more hat and book stands. I'm now all out of wire so will move onto somethig else tomorrow.
The kids are back at school Monday so will have loads of time again and hoping my list gets smaller each day.
Not the most thrilling picture but this is my desk at the moment.... it's all i could think to post. Blogs need pics, lol.

  1. Oooh these sound like fun! I was having problems with blogger a week or so back...it just wouldn't load any photo's and I ended up doing a post at almost midnight! lol

    Hmmm yes, you need to be able to concentrate, I hope your lists reduce ASAP, so you can chill and rest! :o)

  2. I for one can't wait to see your work at Kensington Nikki. As I have learnt life is too short to waste it thinking about people who deserve not an iota of our precious time.

  5. The brooms look cool Nikki. May I ask what material the broom heads are made of? I used to use bristles from my old shaving brush but that got expensive.

  6. Hi Brian, i forget the name of the manterial, i think it could be called cocoa matting/strands.
    Its the material that people with mini tudor houses use for their thatch.
    It comes in quite big bunch so would last foevere.
    I am not sure if you are in the UK, but you can also get this in smaller packs in Hobbycraft; maybe hobbylobby if you are in the states/canada.
    It can be found in the bobby train section among the materials they use to create railway scenes.
    So sorry i am unsure of the product name.

  8. Good luck getting ready on time nikki..........if it makes you feel any more orgsanised ,I havent even started on my list yet ...yikes ! its going to be 4 weeks living in the shed for me !I'm exhibiting at Pudsey tomorrow and its far too close for comfort LOL
    as for the copyright issues, I took the same attitude as you and was all the happier for it. You just concentrate on putting on a fab show in ( can hardly bear to say this) 4 weeks time !
    will definitely pop over to see your table when I get a quiet moment at mine :0)

  9. You do great work Nikki, and I like your unperturbed attitude about the copying. I think you should be flattered by the attempts to imitate, and quite frankly, the quality of 'their' work is not comparable to yours yet! Keep up the great work, and thank you for so often sharing your knowledge!

  12. ME GUSTARIA PODER ESCRIBIR EN INGLES..PERO NO LO SE HACER MUY BIEN.. PERDON. A CERCA DE ESTE ULTIMO POST QUE TIENES EN TU BLOG SOBRE LA COPIA DE TU TRABAJO , YO HE ESTADO HACIENDO UNOS SOMBREROS Y ESCOBAS DE BRUJA, Y PUEDO DECIR QUE LOS TUYOS SON MI FUENTE DE INSPIRACION.. (son adorables)).PERO SOLAMENTE ESO, APARTE QUE YO NO SOY UNA MINIATURISTA QUE VENDE SUS TERABAJOS...SOLO LOS HAGO PARA MI Y QUIZAS PARA RAGALAR A ALGUNAS AMIGAS...POR ESO QUIERO PEDIR DISCULPAS SI LO DE LAS COPIAS ES POR MIS SOMBREROS DE BRUJAS...PERO ESPERO DE TODO CORAZON QUE NO SIENTAS MAL POR ELLO YA QUE EN NINGUN MOMENTO HE QUERIDO HACER UNA COSA PARA HACER NEGOCIO , NI PARA OFENDERTE.....TODO LO CONTRARIO....LO SIENTO SI HA SIDO ASI.
