We made these 2 spoons a while ago but only did the last bit of paint application last night.
The one on the left was made by my good friend Ruth and the one on the right is mine. She was more delicate with her paint application and her sanding and it looks more organic and natural than mine. Needless to say I like the lumpy organic nature of hers and she likes the brightness of mine.
I made some more faux turquoise things including quite a lot of 'tumble chip beads'.
I am Cara Jane Hayman aka Surfingcat. I live in Bristol with my lovely husband and 2 (mainly) lovely children who are 5 and nearly 7 years old. They keep me busy and I teach in a local school 1 day a week but when I have a moment what I love to do is make things (oh and surf the internet). The surfingcat thing came about in the good old days when I used to do some real surfing - the wet kind!
