Brew and a Blether

A Brew and a Blether/Live Demonstration

I did a live demonstration in the Quernoholics Anonymous group on Facebook on Wednesday 16 September. In the demonstration, I made a little polymer clay pumpkin, and you can watch the live demonstration here. I then made a little mouse to live inside the pumpkin, and did a time-lapse video to show how I did this. You can watch the video here

Several years ago, I wrote a tutorial about the process I use for making the pumpkin - you can read it here.

It's The Wee Things in Life collaboration

New collaboration launched
I'm delighted to announce the launch of a wonderful collaboration with Tara Slater of The Lesser Spotted Kiwi! Tara has created this beautiful illustration which captures everything that Quernus means to me :) We have created a special edition collectors' set (pictured) which includes a signed edition of the print, a Chick Magnet made by me, and a beautiful little wooden bunting stand made by Tara. A3 and A4 prints and greetings cards are also available.

Happy Wee Creatures

Happy Wee Creatures

I started the Happy Wee Creatures initiative during these "interesting times" to remind people that they are loved, appreciated and not alone. I will continue to send out Happy Wee Creatures to your special people for the foreseeable future - it's my way of giving something back and helping to make the world a happier place.

Quernus Shop

Quernus Shop 

There was a time, not so very long along, when the cupboards were always bare in the Quernus shop. But since I started the Mini Shop Events, there are usually one or two wee creatures still available to adopt! So keep checking in to my online shop and see if there's a wee creature waiting just for you :) 

Pop-up Peekaboo Unicorn book

Pop-up Peekaboo! Unicorn book

Last summer, I was commissioned by DK Publishing to make five unicorns to be photographed for a children's pop-up book. After several months of keeping quiet, the book has now been published, and I love how they have captured each of the wee unicorns! You can buy the book on Amazon UK and For more photos, click here.
