Another japanese handcraft.
Temari is the art of embroidery onto ball.
Traditionally in japan, ball is made of seeds but it’s easier and faster to use polystyrene balls (and you will get a really round temari).

One day, my love returned home with a photoshop tutos magazine : wonderful !
My birthday wasn’t far off, he offered me a graphic tablet.
With Photoshop you can modify photos but also create photomontage.
There’s a lot of tuto on the web (mostly in english….).
For a friend who loves golf and teddy bears.
Guess what ? …… almond paste of course !
The marzipan teddy is coloured with powder chocolate.
I rolled golf balls marzipan in icing sugar.
My man really loves strawberries.
I took a plastic grappe harvest bucket. I cut the bottom and six holes all around with a hole saw.
Reverse the bucket and plant strawberries through holes and fill the bucket with earth.
Strawberries are always clean and easy to pick.
For those who have a big garden, you can take a big plastic trash can.
To save earth, fill the center with piled garden pots.
My daughter’s birthday became on a competition event Sunday.
I took the club logo.

Though it’s easy and quick to make it.

I wanted mine too.
Cats of course ! They are 6 all around.
I have still 2 white bowls, I’m waiting for ideas.
“Always for the children ! I want mine !”
For my love who learns playing guitar.
My son wanted an all around design : “I’m sure you will manage….”.
There are three celtic snakes which beat themselves the tail.
Colored in Ferrari red of course !
For my daughter (her nickname is “the mouse”).
A mouse needs to be green (like the french song) but mine was dry.
Unfortunately it was difficult to paint with the blue.
Little story : this bowl is the 2nd, my daughter crashed the first one (phew, that wasn’t my fault…).
For my son who likes poker (as all teenagers).
Green marzipan for the mat, pink for the poker chips and white for cards.
