No Tulips for now :( but Cacti

Well actually I was working on some more tulips
I promised to make some tulips 
and I also offered Norma to make some for her.
But I guess it has to wait a bit longer than I expected...

My left hand still hurts and I can't seem
to manage to wrap the leaves
on the stems (is that how it is called?) of the tulips :(
They are ready and waiting now for their finishing touch!
Well... I just have to be a little more patience ;)
I know Norma doesn't mind,
but I don't know how long I have for the
project we are working on with a bunch of miniaturists?
I believe it was until Easter? Does anyone know??

In the meanwhile I am searching for things that I can do...
This is what I started today:

A while ago I saw this great tutorial from Casey's Minis
Am am a real cacti freak! I just love them!
Not only because they are easy to keep alive here in Greece 
when it gets so hot in the summer lol!

I started with painting the pieces of potpourri this morning :)
Still have to find something that I can use for a pot 
or dish to put them in...
But I won't be working at any more minis today,
I think it is better to give my hand some rest,
 so I can finish those tulips real soon ;)

  1. Oh no, it's terrible that you have an injury. As you know there is no hurry whatsoever to make the tulips for me and if you are unable to meet the deadline for Caterina's project she will understand too - there's not much we can do in these circumstances. Take it easy!!

  3. Great substitute for the tulip-making! Take care of your hand, I'm convinced noone in this project will mind if it takes you a little longer than normal...

  7. Jollie, the cacti look great so far! Somewhere on my blog there are instructions for making terracotta pots from cardstock and string. If I can find them I will let you know.They are really easy to do.
