Cupcakes!

I spent most of yesterday making lots of tiny cupcakes for the relaunch of my online shop, Dolly Mixx. I am selling off all the current stock in mystery swag bags atm, so do head on over to the shop, because they are only £20 each, & the contents are worth much more than that! Sorry for that blatant plug, lol, but they would make good Christmas presents ;) If you want a cupcake though, you will have to wait until the New Year, when I shall be lauching my redesigned shop:)

My desk! It's rather messy atm, covered in cupcakes & bead boxes. I only just tidied it, but it basically always looks a mess.

As well as making items for the shop, I have also been madly decorating boxes with paper clay & beads! I did a huge one, which is not quite finished yet, but it is literally covered in hundreds of cabochons & pearls. These pink boxes are actually empty nail polish remover pad boxes, but they look far cuter as little cake-esque ones!

Whilst I'm rambling on about cute things, how adorable is my new (it's actually 20 years old, lol!) Polly Pocket clock? I had one of these as a kid, a bright pink one & when I spotted a photo of it on Flickr, I just had to buy one off eBay! How could I resist - after all it isn't just a toy, it's functional too:P I now have 3 clocks in my room, a wall clock, this one, & also a Winnie the Pooh one. I'm not sure why I need so many for not a very large space!

  1. How cute! I used to LOVE Polly Pocket. But my brother had a tendency of stealing my people and putting them in his toy cars, never to be seen again :(.

  3. Those cupcakes are adorable! I love the Polly Pocket clock, I used to have lots of those little PP houses that snap open when I was a kid, didn't know they had clocks or I would have asked Santa for one! xoxo

  4. Theplussideofme - aww! Luckily I had a sister, so that never happened to me!

    Mali - Hehe! I am glad to be getting back into Dolly Mixx, it's been such a long time since I really bothered with it, but I feel revitalised now.

    Dee - I had lots of those too, I even contemplated buy some of those too, but in the end decided it was less sad if I actually bought something that had a function:P I ended up paying more for it than my Mum did at the time when she bought me my original one.

  7. I've only been reading your blog for a short while and didn't know you had an online shop. These ornaments (charms?) are so beautiful. They look good enough to eat. I think I'm definitely going to be spending some pennies on them. Do you ship international?

  15. adorable! do you make them out of clay? do you put in a cast or something? i've just got a jewellery making brief at college, and i have no idea where to start! the theme is 'junk' so i was thinking making little burgers, hotdogs etc. any advice would be smashing :)

  16. Since you're mentioning your shop, I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with my own "swag bag"! I'm convinced the chocolate cupcake on the pink background will become a new favorite, and the bow earrings are even prettier than I thought they would be! Plus it was so much fun to open the package and discover all the little details you had included in the wrapping! Hugs from a happy customer
