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.

Lagging

Again sorry for the delay and lack of posting here.

I find it really hard to sit and talk about everything and nothing every day.

So, what's new?

Erm, website is slowly ( and I mean slowly ) coming together. Ordered more leather last week, along with ( hopefully ) the correct thread so can get a few bits and bobs done and see how they turn out.
 
Other than that, there's not a lot new :D

It's Been a while

Firstly, I apologise for not posting more frequently, I've just been having to sort out a few bits and bobs.

So, what's new in the world of Pyrophernalia?

Sadly not much. Just mainly been dabbling with a few new ideas. Have finally got some web space, so should be starting to slowly set up the website over the weekend.

I seem to be getting more and more into the leatherworking side of things, but that doesn't mean I won't still be doing pyrography on wood.

I've ordered a few more things for the leather side, a few tools, threads and other general bits and bobs, so hopefully they should be with me next week.

Latest make has been a hat I've been playing with. It's taken about 24 hours in total over about 2-3 weeks, but it's finished at last ( I may get a couple of quill feathers to put in the side for a little extra added something.
