That bowl and other CB makes

Hello there! How are you? I do hope you are well. Sending hugs if not! Well there has been movement on the job front. I did a housekeeping (cleaning to you and me) work trial yesterday and should be getting 2-3 days per week starting next week or the one after! Its a start - not really me but hey! Should keep me in craft items at least!

So here's some more makes from Tuesdays Chocolate Baroque show.

Here's the bowl - I really did enjoy making it. I did it at my local Pottery painting place - pottyroos in Morecambe. Deb who runs it is really lovely. I stamped the design in distress inks and then painted over them. Its best to choose a colour that contrasts with the paints - the ink all burns off in the kiln. 

Here's the inside! 
I am going to try some paperartsy stamps next!!!

Here's another piece I made that - I saw this on set on the back shelves - it didn't really get any airtime! Nevermind!

Anyway! Have a good day. I am off for a short run before a 10K that I'm doing on Saturday - its going to be a tough one!

Big hugs

  4. Your bowl is gorgeous Rachel, the little plaque is too, no I don't remember seeing it. Job wise something will turn I'm sure, keep positive, Kate x

  5. I was so thrilled to see your bowl on TV and it certainly caused a big stir, it is absolutely gorgeous and must have been a real labour of love, but worth every minute!

    Well done on the job front, the only thing I will say is that it is always much easier to find work when you are already in work, so fingers crossed that this is just the start for you! Hugs, Anne xxx

  6. They're both stunning Rachel, just gorgeous. I hope you find a great position soon xx

  7. So pleased you have found a job, it is always easier to get another job whilst you are in a job so to speak. Love the bowl and gorgeous plaque. Good luck with the 10K.
