Man stuff

I have been doing a lot of pink and girly lately and I felt the need to get back to my comfort zone and make some thing a bit Steampunk inspired.  Now normally I find it hard to come up with a masculine type make, but this one almost made itself.  I was in the zone.

Made from a wooden book box, the outer dimensions measure 180mm x 135mm x 80mm ( approx 7 x 5.5 x 3.25 inches) and the inner dimensions are 150mm x 108mm x 68mm ( approx 6 x 4.25 x 2.75inches)

I love working with these boxes.  There are just so many things that you can do with them.  And the fact that I have them in three different sizes, just adds to the fun.

I think that adding feet to this one really set it off.  Made if feel chunkier.

There are two clocks on this piece.  One on the top and one dangling from the chain.

If you would like to know more about this piece, you will soon be able to see it at Nyron Designs

I'm off to do some more crafting.   I have an idea for another one.

Craft along chest

I am lucky enough to be one of the Design Team members for Fernli Deisgn.  This means that I get to play with their wonderful products and then show them off to anyone who will stay still long enough.

There is so much to chose from that the hardest thing is deciding what to play with first.

On Sunday 16th November I will be hosting a "Craft Along"  on the Fernli Designs Facebook group

A craft along is a social event, where people can chat and swap ideas and techniques, but through out the day I will be posting a tutorial to make a version of this chest.  I have already posted the shopping list, but here are a few direct links to items that I will be using as well as alternatives.

The last two links are to product ranges as I there is loads to chose from and you all have different taste.

If you would like to make an alternative to the chest, take a look at this section.  So much to chose from. 

Whether you will be crafting or not, if you fancy a crafty natter...... join in :)

Time for me to go craft.

So busy, but so good.

Phew what a week.

Monday saw Sharon and myself at Broadditch Farm Shop chatting to them about Nyron Designs.  I am so happy.   They have agreed to take on some of our stock.  So later this week, you will be able to find our Spooky Lane houses there.

If you would like to keep up to date on what stock we have where, join our page Nyron Designs on Facebook.

I have also been showing off my new Design Team make for Fernli Designs

If you would like to see more views of my make, please click on the "MY Fernli Designs" tab at the top of this page.  There you will find short videos of my design team pieces.

Most of this week has been taken up with work and preparing to build the houses for Broadditch Farm.  I also squeezed in time to work on this piece. 

I will post full pictures of this one as soon as it is finished.

Right.  I'm off for a cup of coffee.  Hope the next week treats you all well.

Those of you that have been here before may know that I run a craft group on Facebook called
The group boasts over eighty members now and we run regular challenges.

Yesterday I challenged myself to make a card that would be suitable to enter three of the ones that we have running at the moment.

  • "Tag you're it"  Make something that includes a tag as part of the larger project
  • "Think Pink"  Make something that includes the colour pink somewhere on it and
  • "Inside and out card challenge"  Make a card that is decorated inside as well as out.
To make things a little more difficult for myself, I did an on the fly tutorial.  This was totally unplanned and I posted pictures with instructions as I went along.  I had two ladies following the tutorial from the get go, so I had to think fast.

This is the card that I made.

The ladies that were following along as I made it did their own versions and did an amazing job. Doing this tutorial on the fly was a lot of fun and I hope to be doing it again soon.  To join in the fun click here

I hear some paint and glue calling my name for another project.

I have loads more I need to share with you, so expect another post soon if all goes to plan.

Announcing Nyron Designs

I am EXTREMELY proud to announce that Nyron Designs has now gone live.

Nyron Designs is the brainchild of myself Ny (Naomi) and 'Ron (Sharon). We are both  avid crafters and wanted a way to share our creations with others.

We will be selling hand crafted gifts and while we will make a selection of  goods on a theme, our aim is never to make 2 identical pieces.  We will also be selling our own line of hand crafted cards.  So if you are looking for something special FOR that some one special (you too), then forget factory made and take a look at what we have to offer.

To get a peek at a few of our unique hand made gifts head on over to our Facebook page which you can find HERE.  We are currently working on a new website which we hope to be able to share with you very soon.

We are currently in talks with a retail outlet with regards to selling some of our stock through them, but if you are interested in commissioning an item, you can contact us direct through our Facebook page.

Thanks for dropping by.
