Brilliant. I love them. What did you use to cut the silhouettes? Auto cutter?

They are wonderful. I wish I could use a scalpel like that, but I can`t see properly to do it.

I did consider it once MrsC, but I'm not sure that I could make it viable, I think I once worked out out that if I charged minimum wage for any of the crafts I make, not many people would be prepared to pay for them.

The slave labour of Chinese political prisoners undercuts me in every craft...

They are so good though, surely people would buy them. I always think that there is a huge gap in the Pagan gift card market unless you want gawdy over the top cards. You must have a really steady hand, the tiny detail is amazing like the little bird house and the birds in the trees. I suffer with reynaulds so my hands would never be able to cope with the delicate work. I am envious Smile

We are an eclectic mix of all sorts of faiths/beliefs, as well as none. And all are welcome Very Happy

A lot of folk celebrate the Wheel of the Year even if not Pagan because we are all gardeners and custodians of the Soil and grow stuff, or want to. So the Seasons changing and the days lengthening or shortening means a lot to all of us. Ans we are all interested in wildlife and nature as well.

I think you will fit right in, as well Laughing

You are up against the cutting plotters as well, which make it a lot easier to "knock" them out cheaper (and selling them off as craft gifts!)
