Dads MOJO deserves a beer.

As you can see Dad's been busy :) yes his boat is named MOJO . He made it mostly from icypole sticks ....Im amazed !
 So cheers Dad here's a beer for you ;)
 Ive also been making some succulents and cacti
Heres another beer .These are made from the lid of a yoghurt container heated with a lighter then pushed (in the melted section) with a chopstick to make the glass shape .Filled with resin ....I dont know if you can see the tiny bubbles in this one ....but I did a lot of careful stirring to get tiny bubbles in the beer :)

Cup of Soup and inspiration.

 I dont know how many of you have seen this stuff .....Im loving it ! Its a modelling compound that dries like foam and is really light and easy to shape or roll into paper thin sheets .
 Here is a few (of many) roses that I made to decorate cakes.
 Heres where the cup of soup comes in ....I looked at the foil pack and wondered .....It reminded me of the inside of chip packets grabbed some printies from the net ,printed them onto paper,stuck it to the paper covered side of the foil ,glossed it then made some snack packets :) and some paint tubes ...Im sure this stuff will have many uses.
 Not content with making just sealed packs I started making chips (crisps) from fimo was fiddly and I found it hard to get them off the tile without them breaking I resorted to the foam modelling compound for making doritos and twisties ....much easier and is air drying :)
 While I had the fimo out I made several dozen cupcakes ( yes I like doing things in bulk lol)
and heres a few more bits of jewelry.
I hope you are all well and those in the northern hemisphere are enjoying the warmer weather . Those in the south are heading into winter.......a great time for cups of soup ;)
