Here are a few of my first pictures! The picture above is taken from my work space - as you can see it is pretty messy but some of my best ideas blossom here.
These are one of my first very own creations - Cupboard Mice - named by my daughter Caylagh. These little critters tend to live in warm, dark kitchen cupboards and pantries - as you can see, this little guy above has decided to snuggle up in one of my tea cups!
Last but by no means least, let me introduce you to Else (the large bear). I made her in England while we were stationed there 5 years ago. I made her out of muslin and finished her with a coat of acrylic paint. I then dressed her in a little delicate Victorian-style dress, and added a bow made out of lace for the finishing touches! (The two smaller critters were made for me by my daughter Ashleigh). I hope you have enjoyed these first glimpses of my creations - there will be plenty more pictures to come so please check back in soon!
I would also like to thank the fellow bloggers who messaged me and welcomed me to Blogger, thank you for your kind words and welcoming wishes, they are much appreciated :)

My name is Karen Bailey, and my passion aside from my family is finding old things and crafting. I love walking through antique stores and other interesting places to search for new treasures that I can use for my crafts or for my home.
