Time to get Busy

Well the first post as come and gone and now it's time to get busy.

Cinnamon Kitties in a basket
 These kitties were a lot of fun.
The cutter has the tail attached to the side of his body. I cut it down his side and curled it to lay on his side in a more natural pose.
Simple cutter shapes can be changed easily to look just a little more enjoyable.

A whole flock of sheep

This sheep has mustard seed "fleece"

Some of my sheep have cloves glued on for fleece and others have some wonderful clear glitter.
The cloves add wonderful fragrance to an already gentle cinnamon smell.

A whole collection of hearts
These hearts are addicting.
So much you can do with a simple shape. Some have the wavy edge and some are smooth.
Then of course a lot of playing with embellishments.  A little glitter, flowers, ribbons and lace. A gold hanging cord finishes them off nicely.

Later I'll share some three dimensional shapes that are a little bit of a challenge but so worth the effort . Until then,

Have a wonderful week and we'll see you soon.

 Time to get busy

Great Big Gentle Hugs and blessings , Trudy
