I love your peg people...

....but I have no clue what to do with them.

Let's get the two obvious ones out the way first:

1. They will look great on your washing line, keeping your washing safe as it dries. How about ordering a whole bunch so you don't have to use your old ones or store bought ones anymore?

2. They make great toys. Children love the pegs to have lots of adventures with. Wouldn't it be great if you had peg people that resembled your family, or your child and their friends? There would be no end to the stories they would come up with.

Ok, now that we've got that out of the way, let's see what else we can do:

3. They are of great use when you want to stop eating those delicious crisps but don't want to end up with stale crispies. Just roll up the end of the bag and put a peg person to guard your crisps!

4. They can keep an eye on your paperwork, separating it from other paperwork. No more endless searching, your pegs will keep track of it.

5. They can keep your mail separated from that of your house mates or family members, which will work especially well if you will let me make pegs resembling your family or house mates.

6. They sure beat a simple name tag on the table to show your guests what the table setting is like. Again, this will work especially well if you will let me make pegs resembling your dinner guests. And they can take them home after dinner!

7. They make great party favors! Give me a theme to work with, weddings, Halloween, Christmas, and I will make you the required amount.

8. They are perfect to hang up all your birthday cards on a washing line in your room. Or to keep your favourite pictures up.

9. Let me make a bunch of pirates, vampires, or other 'scary pegs' which you can hand out during Halloween. Who said a treat had to be candy or fruit, right?

10. Pegs resembling your children (and maybe even the grown ups in your household) will look great on your family routing planner. This way everyone will know where little Joey has to be on Wednesday and that Dad will be out fishing on Sunday.

11. It gives you someone to talk to when the voices in your head don't want to listen.

12. You can always carry your friends and family around with you. This makes them wonderful for when your child is having a sleep over with friends but gets home sick easily, a fun present for those going off to college after summer, or in the unfortunate event of a stay in hospital.

13. No more worry dolls, these are 'good things that happened today'-dolls! Tell your peg people every night about all the good things that happened that day, and you'll be surprised just how great your days really are!

I am sure there are more brilliant ideas my fellow Etsians and other creative souls out there can come up with, but I thought these 13 were a good place to start. ;)

Charming Girl Ginger

Ginger is the newest addition to the Charmed Ones. She's got her purple top on that matches her purple hair clips, her pendant matches her eyes and lippy, she's quite the trendy girl.

She would love to keep you company hanging from your bag or purse, phone, key chain, button, anywhere really.

Come and have a look at more pictures of Ginger at Timeless my Etsy shop.

Oh, and if you think she looks an awful lot like Pretty Peg, one of the Peg Girls, well, you're right. They're cousins!

Paint Jam

YouTube is a great way to show the world how you do your work. I've seen lots of paintings being born on YouTube and it's always wonderful to see.

But this... Is truly truly amazing. It's a 5 min. clip but please keep watching until the end, it's worth it.

Paint Jam!

Move over Spice Girls, here are the Peg Girls

I seriously don't know why the Spice Girls would even bother, the Peg Girls are going to take the world by storm!

Let me introduce the girls left to right:
Pink Peg - who loves anything and everything pink, from her clothes to her hair.

Pretty Peg - who likes everything to sparkle, that's why she's wearing a glitter top.

Punk Peg - she's not as rough as she seems.

Pale Peg - please don't call her a goth, she was born with very pale skin and it took her a long time to realize that's actually a nice feature on her.

and Pirate Peg - who secretly loved one of the Peg pirates, and when they were sold she started wearing the eye patch and pirate necklace to show how much she missed him.

Come and have a closer look at them at Timeless, my Etsy shop.

Looking for a home

Yesterday, as I opened the doors to my shop to see what needed to be done in the way of inventory and promotions, I heard a strange sound coming from the back. I went to have a look and was most surprised what I saw there: two seals had found their way into my shop! A mother and child, looking at me with those big eyes as if to say 'Please find us a home!'

I tried to calm them down, the shop must have been such a strange environment for them, and promised that I would do my very best to find them a new place to live.

So... If you think you can provide a happy home for these two lovely little pet rock seals, please come and have a look in my shop Timeless.

Charming Vampire

A few weeks ago, I bought this bead necklace at a car boot sale. I had no idea what to do with it yet, but I just wanted to have it... A creative brainstorm later, this Charming Vampire was born.

She's hanging from a pink ribbon so she can be attached to your phone, bag, necklace, button, hair clip, you name it.

She's already got a sister in my shop, and there will be more Charmed Ones to come!

Look what I bought!

This gorgeous necklace was made by Anac Designs.

It's incredibly light, you hardly know you're wearing it. The beads are not really beads but Kukui nuts, the seeds of the candleoil tree. (Need to remember that for when people ask!)

Not only is the necklace absolutely gorgeous, but the wrapping and presenting was wonderful. I highly recommend Anac Designs!

(And no, that's not my neck, that's hers!)
