Toadstool Footstool and Fuzzy Bats

A couple of weeks ago I got this gorgeous item from the lovely Esme of PaisleyChainsaw, EsmeArt and StyleMissile:


It's a Toadstool Footstool, made for the UK Etsy Challenge, and Esme kindly gave it to me for FREE! Yays :)

I have bought many things from her supplies store:


esmeart100th - Goodies

and recently I was her 100th customer there, so I got fabulous freebies:

Bowl O' Kitsch from Esme

Bless her, it's a wonder she makes any money giving away all this free stuff :D

I also wish to pimp a couple of other UK Etsians I've bought things from lately. First up is, from whom I bought these gorgeous jewel-coloured glass beads:


Also check out her other shop, from which I bought one of my favourite pairs of earrings:

Look what I got from GUGAW!

I love silver, and I love roses, so these are perfect :)

I've been wanting to use felt beads in my work for a while, and finally took the plunge with a 25 bead taster pack from


I also got free beads and buttons, yay! BigFish is the colourful, ethical supplies shop of the lovely Kirsty Fish (probably not her real name), and she also runs PaperFish (more colourful goodness) and SnowFish (Christmas goodness).

The new material deserved a new design, and I've created something a little more minimal than my usual work. Here's what I've made with the felt beads so far:

Pink Fuzzy Bat - a necklace with a felt bead

Black Fuzzy Bat - a batty necklace with a felt bead

These little winged furballs are called Fuzzy Bats, and are for sale here.

Thanks for reading, and happy shopping!
