Found some examples of my chain mail work. A necklace I made for myself, and the collar I made for my beloved little tripod, Keiko. Some day, when he’s grown, I’ll make Malakai his own special piece. Also Easter eggs around my house are dragon eggs. A lot more durable and pretty, but not very edible.

I love to be crafty, but my health has sadly robbed me of most of my skills. Sometimes though you just have to tell your health ‘not today!’ and push on anyway. I knit via looms - currently making Malakai a big fuzzy blanket. I also like to do chain mail and kumihimo jewelry/kitty collars, and I have a tiny Etsy store where I sell my handmade cat toys.

Sadly I can not officially sell the Hairy Pawter racing broom.... at least not till I iron out with WB's attorneys why my item got yanked but not all the other HP items sold online. Especially since mine is the Nimble, not Nimbus. Yes, I made the scarf too. The bat, ‘Mewcille’ is from Walking Dead, and the collar in the picture is one I made for someone's dog. The toaster pastry's are what started it all, and all my toys get tested by my four legged play testers; Bella LaToesy, a polydactyl tuxedo I rescued, loves to try out the new toys.

@Zab OMG! If you ever mass produce the kitty I simply must have one! You’re so talented!! ❤
Awesome! For me it's so important to do stuff with my hands, that's how I keep sane...

Thought I would update for anyone interested on the progress of my Frida oil painting. It is taking me forever because work has kinda taken over lately. I want to add a background of some kind, but haven’t decided what to do yet. Ideas are welcome!

Stunning! So alive and full of expression. Love it! Looks like she trying to grab a bird in the tree;-)

I love it as is too! It's really stunning and dramatic. Maybe a bee or dragonfly since it looks like she's reaching for something. When I see this I want to try painting Siiri and Ville too...

I love these rainy sundays when you can stay indoors. My halloween stuff for the entrance are coming along... It's my favourite holiday, sadly no invitations to a costume party this year. I would love to attend one of those! Maybe next year I have to host one.

Thought I'd share some of the Halloween goodness.... it's not a big holiday here, yet. In Sweden Halloween is on saturday and people go to their loved ones graves and light candles. It's really beautiful when it's all dark outside. I'd love to see how other parts of the world celebrate, so please share. Happy Halloween lairians!

@Zab no halloween here unfortunally. Although it seems to be upcoming with some halloween parties here and there. Saturday it’s “allerzielen” (badly tanslated “everysouls”). It’s the same as at your place: people go to the graves of the beloved ones that passed and light candles.
Love your halloween decoration. Specially the doll!

Now that Halloween is done, christmas is just around the corner. Maybe I'm a little early but since I'm home sick I decided to start with christmas decorations. A while back I bought old kids skates at a flea market. This is what I came up with. Instead of a wreath on my front door. Esso was with me all the way. It's no kids play crafting with cats.... He now needs a bath. He is so glittery that he reminds me of a drag queen in Vegas!

@Zab I loooooooooove your Christmas decoration. I think you can just say winter decoration so nobody can yell “too early”;-).
I want to see Esso as a drag queen. I just now glitters will look good on him

Well, Esso's been in the bath already. I was afraid he would lick that glitter up and get it in his system. No good... Winter decorations, I like it! That way I can keep it up for moths to come!

@Zab love love love love love this christmas tree!!!
It was fun making! I got inspired by you and needed something to do with my hands today. I just put away the all the Halloween decorations and decided to reuse one skeleton. I love to get my hands on that golden spray and go nuts. Maybe this one gets to be outside on the patio for christmas.
