One of my friends told me that she was saving the place in the book she was reading by using … <wait for it …> ….. a piece of . . . . loo roll. Ok, so this told me more than I needed to know about her – which we had a good ol’ giggle about – so I resigned to make her something which she’d want to use instead of the loo roll . . . . and this – Angel Feather Bookmark – is what happened.
Inside my creative heart and mind, a story developed as I played with the clay and I began to think …. “wouldn’t it be lovely if an Angels feather was the thing to keep her place in the book she’s reading..” …. my fingers obviously heard my heart and mind because this is what popped out of the clay.
I shaped it, baked it and … she loved it.
All made from Polymer, with the addition of a silk tassel.

I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck!
This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium.
I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form.
One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'.
Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows.
I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course).
I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash.
Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!)
Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3
