candy canes and a design team

Hi!

While making red buttons I thought....candy canes......so I made some with fimo...these are my first try...still need to be sanded down and glossed up (one problem is the red fimo bleeds and tint the white...hhmmm)...but they're kinda cute...I have a few Christmas tag ideas for them....I'd be more than happy to share some fimo candy canes with someone so please leave a comment and I'll randomly choose someone......by tomorrow night I think...Christmas is just around the corner!!!







And speaking of tomorrow...Squigglefly's got loads of new digi images to be release...a few of them are mine!!! And here's my idea.........I just love seeing cards made with my images and because there are just not enough hours in the day I was thinking of .......and I really don't want to use this term....a 'design team'...(I don't know how else I'd say it).........but 2 or 3 people who would make a card or two or three with my images and email them to me (and post them on their blog)...... I will send you my images for free....and perhaps a few of my handmade buttons would find their way to your craft table!!!! Well....this is my thought anyways............if you are interested please email me (my email is at the top right).
Pin It!

That is one of the cutest ideas I've seen. I think they look great! Ideas are already coming to mind of what I could make with them.

Oh... Love those candy canes Jane!! So cute! I think your 'design team' is a great idea! If I had a printer that would print on cardstock... I would so be interested! A new printer is on my wish list!

Jane, I love your image, the santa is soooo cute. I am geting copic certified this weekend, so it would be great to use them as I blog about fine tuning my copic skills. My readership is pretty low, but this could be a great way to benefit both of our efforts. Let me know if you are interested.

These are so cute! I love the idea of using them on tags!

NinaB said...

What a great idea with Fimos. Now, a DT, why didn't I think of that? :-) Whoever they are, I'm sure they'll make fabulous projects with your adorable drawings!

Oh Jane, how wonderful, little cute candy canes! So precious, hopefully you can find a solution for the red not to bleed! I'm sure you will!

Oh, so cute! I can smell the peppermint! How big are they? Would make cute embellies on a card or tag!

Hi Jane! I'm following YOU! It's a good feeling to finally be able to work this whole "blogging thing" for me! No, I don't have my own blod, but it doesn't seem to be that difficult! Anyway, I've always LOVED your work, so when I came across your blog, what a BONUS!! It's like having the "inside scoop" on what gets you going and what's happening in your world. Keep the inspiration flowing, Jane! I LOVE IT ALL!! Love, Karen xoxo

I think these candy cane buttons are SUPER yummy! You know me, everything is all about yumminess...also to tell you a funny thing. My DH asked me to sew up his fallen button for his pajama, he said: "can you sew this up please? Use the button from Jane of Croatia! It'll look great!" (LOL)...you have quite a REPUTATION, Jane!
