New Releases **UNVEILED**

At Last, let the terror begin!!

Introducing HAMMY HORRORS!

Cast your mind back to early cinema, when a titillating evening could be spent at the drive-in watching the most over the top, campy, blood lacking spook-a-fying renditions of horror the world had ever known! 

 Hammer films made horror fun long before we had slasher movies and well before the 'group of annoying teens all get killed one by one until one is left for the sequel' genre.

They made such greats as:
note spine chilling depictions like 'horrorama'. ooh.

he died - yet lived! ahh!

also cert x -adults only!

Now the Forest Flaw has it's own hammy horrors - in technicolour for your viewing pleasure

Wolf Man


Frank N. Stein

These are only the first three. Soon to unveil 3 more from the hammy horror range.
So keep your eyes out, 
NOT to be Viewed ALONE!!

Jekyll and Hyde have moved in for summer

Time off from crafting has had a strangely dual effect.

1. It has made me tired. Oh so tired.
I like to nap. 
I forgot how much I like to have a little lay down in the afternoon with a cup of tea and snooze with the cat. 
Admittedly, it took me a few days to transition from 'frantic making mode' to 'afternoon torpor', but it definitely happened.
I can now feel the two o'clock tireds creep up behind me, catch me in it's cuddly arms and transport me to the dream fields where fireflies buzz and a stream trickles past the long grass.....
ooh, look out it had me again. 

2. Inspiration has gripped me.
Like superglue between your fingers, I am stuck on this new range and feel completely buzzed about making it. I am desperate to put them all up but am waiting till a few more are completed to have a grand unveiling. I will cut the virtual ribbon as soon as I can.

So ideas are swirling, but the energy has eluded me. I can't seem to get the pace back. I have gone from 10+ hour days to 4 and feel more tired than before.
Perhaps it's the heat.
However, it all amounts to excuses.

Perhaps I need to bombard myself with obscure cliche's and proverbs such as:
*Use it or lose it
*the early bird catches the worm
*A stitch in time saves nine
*A poor workman always blames his tools
*A woman's work is never done

But in the end it is up to me to just sit myself down and do it, because as the wise and bizarre old saying goes:

*fine words butter no parsnips
