A New Style

I will only be posting here when / if I have something to say :D I'm finding it more and more difficult to keep rambling on about nothing :D

So, since last post, what's new?

All the charity bits and bobs have finally been completed and are now with the lady to take them with her to the stall when it's on :D

I've been trying to hone my shading skills but alas, no luck.

Getting more and more frustrated at not being able to do portraits, I've been thinking about a new idea. I've been working on more pop-art ish style black and white images, and here's a couple I've done :D

First up is one of Jimi Hendrix

And next is one of Nikki Sixx in the same style, just used different shading techniques

Counting down the days

Well, finally finished the charity keyrings today and took them up to the lady who is taking them with her to the stall at Easter.

Thankfully everyone seemed more than happy with the finished items. Now only 5 more bookmarks left to do and that will be everything done.

Hope all the lovely followers are well and are all like busy bees crafting away :D

Almost finished


sorry it's been so long everyone.

How all is well in your own little crafty worlds.

So, what new with myself? Almost finished the charity keyrings and bookmarks. I had a lack of motivation while doing them. I found doing the same design numerous times got a little mundane, but will be over soon.

I've also been contacted by a customer about doing a largish pyrograph copy of one of his tattoo designs, so that will be interesting and fun.

Pictures will be up as and when.

I need YOUR votes.

Ok everyone, I need YOUR help. I'm begging for votes. If I get my 500 needed votes, I will get £500 to help progress Pyrophernalia and the products and designs. All I need you to do is sign up using the following like and vote for me. This costs you nothing, but every vote I receive gets me £1, providing I reach the 500 needed votes.

All actions go

Ok, so maybe not all of them, but some are on the go.

I've been racking my brains about what to make for this fund raiser charity table thingy.

I think keeping it simple is the way to go, so have been cutting out keyrings and am working on some bookmarks.

Both will have the KWK9 logo on them and the bookmarks will have the website address as well.

I did think about other designs to burn onto them but I think it's nice to have something to remind you of what / how you got the item ( in this case, donating the money to the charity )

Pictures will be up once I've done a few.

Fundraising and donating

I was recently asked if I would be willing to donate a few items for a local charity, for a stall they are having in a local village hall at Easter.

I found this quite exciting as it will be the first time anyone will have the chance to purchase anything made by me ( apart from the belt on folksy, but that's nothing major )

The charity is KWK9 Rescue who, if you didn't guess, rescue dogs and give them a better lease of life.

Looks like I will have to get my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with for the stall.

If you would like more information about KWK9 Rescue, please visit their website:- KWK9 Rescue

New arrivals

Today I had a knock at the door from the postie, unfortunately, I think he must have had ants in his pants as it was a very quick knock, so I went to the door to notice no-one there. What was there was one of their lovely little red notes saying "We knocked but ran away after so your parcel is still at the post office )

Well, I went to the post office wondering what it was as I couldn't remember ordering anything very recently. Then I remembered, I had ordered some new leather along with some decent thread. I also found a little pack of snap fasteners in there which I had actually cancelled as the setting tool was out of stock, but they weren't on the invoice, so I'm not complaining.

Now I just have to decide what to do with it all.
