So today I made an amazing find! For me, anyways… Ok. So I have been looking for ‘toaster ovens’ now for some time! I can’t seem to find them at the shops and online they’re overly priced once you include shipping especially for what I want it for. I want it for baking polymer clay.
Anyway, today we went to town as the flea-market is on Tuesdays and it was the firs thing I saw! I asked the bloke “how much” and he said “£10, but for you £5”. BARGAIN the cheapest online inc postage is £30!! So we bought it.
It looks like this… (I did not take the picture, thank you google).

So I know I said I wanted it for polymer but I wanted to clear up why. So here are a few reasons. First being in my situation I can’t bend down so well to put them in the oven, check on them or remove them from the oven, all of this it particularly difficult for me. Beside this I don’t like the taste of food for a number of meals after baking polymer clay in the oven (it’s also toxic). Furthermore the cost of gas to cook polymer is silly. So a little toaster oven that will do the job (bake) just the same but in my craft room at an accessible place. I may indeed have to work on more polymer charms and such now I have access to baking properly (obviously once I can get to my polymer as the house is still upside down (or downstairs up in my case!!)
So that’s my oober awesome find! Bargain! As new! Wonderful – happy days.
As for the house, there’s been no updates because nothing new has happened since I last wrote … just playing the waiting game (still).
