My little secret

I mentioned yesterday a crafty reveal today.  Well, I have a small confession to make.  I have been unfaithful to this blog, gasp!

Yes my friends I am afraid it's true.  I have been sneaking around behind this blog's back, abandoning the clean and crisp world of sewing, the soft and gentle world of crochet, to get my hands really rather dirty...

But don't worry it's not that bad :)

I have always been into clay modelling, near enough my whole life.  It is something that is pretty second nature to me, and something that I never considered anybody else might be interested in, so I never really wrote about it here.  Recently, as I started to make some clay Christmas gifts, I thought I ought to share my creations here on my blog.  But somehow it didn't seem quite right, the clay side of my creativity seems seperate somehow.  I know what I am doing with clay, whereas with sewing and crochet and mosaics and baking I am just winging it most of the time, getting tangled up with zips and confused by patterns and hook sizes.

Sooo, I started a new blog for the messier side of my creative life.  And...I also created a new shop.  Yup, after long considering the possibility of opening an Etsy or Folksy shop to sell my sewing creations, after umming and aahing and will I won't, I completely ignored myself, dived full on into my clay and opened a shop selling my muddier creations instead!  You can now find my clay orientated self over on Etsy and also on Folksy.

So, would you like to see some of my clay creations?

I have some spooky things...

And some festive things (look away now if it's too early in the year for the "c" word...)

There are many more creations under way of course so, really, do watch this space..or rather my other space over at MudMeddling.

The cleaner cuddlier crafts will of course continue as ever here on Snipsnaphappy.



  1. Hi Ali, get you with two blogs!!! And well done on opening on folksy and etsy.

    I know my way round zips, sewing machines, fabrics (even got a degree in it actually!) but wouldnt know one lump of clay from another.

    Wishing you lots of luck with it, Fiona xx

  2. They're fantastic! Love your style.

  3. Hi Ali - good for you...what a devilish thing to do.

    I love your creations expecially the witchy stuff, but that's probably because I have my own little witch.

    take care,

    Nina xx

  4. Ohh I love these! Will u be making these to sell? I'd love to buy a santa :)
