Hi, everyone! This is my first post.

I've spent the last couple months diving into paper crafts, and I am in love. So I thought I'd share my latest project with you, a mobile I made for my niece's birthday. I'm very proud of how it turned out and can't wait to try something else!

I used an embroidery hoop, lots of cardstock, digital printed paper, glue, glitter glue, embroidery floss, ribbon, lace, mini brads, a sticker, and a fabric rosette. I also cut one of my old bindis to use on my doll.

Aunt and niece paper dolls. The flowers and heart spell out "trust in magic." And you can't really tell in these pictures, but the dolls are wearing sparkly emerald and ruby slippers, respectively.

See the rest of the mobile objects beneath the cut. )

And best of all, aunt and niece celebrating together.

I need to make some little sculptures, about 17cm high, casting them with a latex mould. They will be painted (by kids) and then left outdoors, so need to be waterproof. Does anyone know:

1.)   What I should cast them in? I’m looking for something like Plaster of Paris, i.e. white, and giving a surface on which I can paint, but waterproof. I saw something called Cassini’s Outdoor – is that any good?

2.)  What they should then be painted with? Poster paints? Acrylics? It’s OK if they then have to be painted over with some sort of varnish / sealant to make them waterproof, but it’d be great if there was a paint that’d be waterproof straight away. And it’s be absolutely perfect if it was very safe for children, i.e. not toxic.

3.)  If they do then have to be painted with some other sealant to be waterproof – what’s best?

I’m looking for materials that are available in the UK – and that will stand up to the UK climate! Thanks.

Here is very cute "I love you" magnet on cross stitch fabric made by me. It is a great little gift for your loved-one. Tuck into a Thank You or Birthday card or give "just because".  Size of magnet is around 1 x 2 inches. They are backed by white felt and magnet to the back.
