Cupcakes and Leopard print!

Good afternoon all πŸ™‚

I recently entered a cupcake swap on Oh Sew Beautiful’s Blog, it kind of happened by accident……ok I totally gegged in on it πŸ˜› I saw the owner of Oh Sew beautiful asking if anyone wanted to help out as they had one person who didn’t have a partner so I thought “why the hell not” and asked if it could be me!! It was loads of fun, mainly as I LOVE cupcake themed things πŸ˜€ I hope I sent ok stuff, I was a bit nervous but I knew I wanted to include some hand-made things so I knitted this…….

Knitted cupcake!

I have to apologise for the poor photo, it’s from my BlackBerry which really isn’t made to take photos of any kind haha! I got the pattern out of a ‘Twenty to Make’ book. I don’t know if you have ever seen them but they are really cool! They have a theme and have twenty things to make in that theme! I have 4 of them already! This one was from ‘Twenty to Make: Knitted Cakes‘. The patterns are pretty easy to follow….I say that but mine actually went a bit wrong! The case is far bigger than it was supposed to be πŸ˜› That’s totally my fault though, I used the wrong sized needles!! OOOPPS!

The other hand-made item I sent was made by my good friend Katie! She does really cute papercuts so I asked her to make a special cupcake one! For those of you who aren’t sure what Papercutting there are lots of websites on the net dedicated to this fine art! I totally forgot to take a photo of the papercut cupcake so I have had to use the photo that the lady who received my parcel took πŸ˜›

Katie doesn’t have a website just yet but she is in the process of setting one up so I will let you all know when she does πŸ™‚ Isn’t it cool?? I really wanted to frame it but I ran out of time 😦 The other bits I got I thought would be quite practical as my Partner (caz)Β  has just started University (hence the pen, sticky notes and note-book :-P)!! I can’t wait to get my parcel πŸ˜€ I will let you all know what is in it when it comes!!

I’ve also signed up for an Advent swap on Hookin with laalaa’s Blog…this is going to be a challenge but I honestly can’t wait! I also have a few orders to complete before Christmas……wish me luck everyone!!

On a completely different note, we have been decorating today πŸ˜€ We’ve started with my little room…mainly as it’s the smallest haha! I’ve painted the walls white (I’m not sure about this yet as I’m not really a fan of no colour…and no I don’t count white as a colour haha!!), and we have started putting up the wallpaper…….

I suppose you could have guessed from the title what it was going to be πŸ˜› I LOVE it!! I’m only doing that one wall in it though! Do any of you have any different ideas on what colours I could do the walls to go with this or should I stick with white? I can’t wait till its done and all of my crafty stuff is in here πŸ˜€ YAY!

Hope you are all having a lovely week, byyyeeee for now!!

    I have NO idea what colour would go best with leopard print wall paper πŸ˜€ You have to show us when it’s done though! ALL our walls are magnolia, apart from the 2 kids bedrooms – blimming rented!

    Love your swap items – I always admire paper cuts, such intricacy astounds me – definitely share the blog addy when she sets up!

    I may do that swap – are you in or are you to busy at mo?
