I’ve gone Sugar Skull crazy!!

Once again my Friends this post will be fairly short!! I haven’t had much chance to craft recently but I do have a new project on the go!! It’s a practical project too which is always good!! 😛

I don’t know about all you lovely ladies out there, but I have a horrible time trying to store my necklaces!! If I have them in a jewellery box they seem to get tangled and broken 😦 I don’t know if this just happens to me but it happens all the time! So I thought to myself, how else can I store them?? The solution I have come up with is to hang them on a cork board and hang the cork board up on the wall……well it’s worth a try!!

I’ve had this cork board for a while but I couldn’t think for the life of me how to decorate it! I didn’t want it to just stay like that, that is just not me at all! In the end I decided to at least paint it white as this would make a good base coat!! Inspiration finally came the other day! Why not paint a Sugar skull design on to the cork board?? 😀 GENIUS!!

So that is my plan! I have no clue if this will even work but it’s worth a try! It looks good in my head, but most of my ideas look good in my head….most end up unfinished or going completely wrong :-p

In other news, I’ve almost finished the baby blanket YAY!! I have redesigned it slightly and I’m really pleased with the result! I will take pictures as soon as I can!!

I hope you are all doing well 🙂 Take Care!!


Bunnies and toadstools!

Hello everyone!

So today I’m just stopping by to share the one and only photo I have of my prototype bunny! He still doesn’t have eyes and his arms aren’t attached…..man it has taken forever FOREVER to do! Not helped by the fact I have two other things to knit and a real life job too 😛 Anyway here he is…..

Prototype bunny!

He isn’t looking too bad! I’ve just realised that it would have been cool to get him done before easter!! Oh well! Knitting soft toys is incredibly time-consuming :-S I really wanted to do it more but I’m just not sure I can!!

I’ve also been working on some new things for the shop! I’ve finished a really cute toadstool brooch that I’m really hoping grabs someone’s attention and sells.  That would make my day!!

Toadstool Brooch!

Please ignore my hand on this, I think I need to moisturise or something 😛 Anyway what do you guys think? I think the red bit should have been a bit bigger but it’s not too bad for a first try is it?? I’m selling it for £5 so if you fancy it please feel free to send me a message 🙂

Other than those two little projects I have been working on socks for Teddy Bears! I couldn’t for the life of me find a pattern for bear socks so I had to wing it 😛 The bears also seemed to have VERY big feet bless them!

Bear Socks!

I am waiting to find out if they fit…….I really really hope they do!! I’m also still working on the multi coloured baby blanket which I must get finished soon! Then I have to finish coats for the bears too!! My poor fingers will end up in a claw like shape soon 😛

I’m feeling a little meh at the moment! That is the only way I can really describe it.  I’m not unhappy but there is something that just doesn’t feel quite right……do any of you have this problem??

Oh well i hope you have all had a lovely Easter 🙂 Take Care!!


Prototype Bunny!

Prototype Bunny!

One day he will have arms and eyes and a tail…..one day!!


About me and other things!

I did this questinaire on my other Blog but thought I would pop it on here too so please feel free to read on 🙂

My friend Carmen from Crafty whoopidooings was tagged in a MEME thingy a while a go and invited her followers to answer the questions so i thought why not!! So here we go……..
1.If you could describe your life in colour, what would it be and why?Red……I love the colour red! It makes me happy and is nice and warm. I like to think that my personality suits the colour red 🙂
2. Do you have any pets? If so, what are they/their names and why do they fit your personality?I have a black cat named Lupin after Professor Lupin in Harry Potter……and no I’m not a Harry Potter fan AT ALL but professor Lupin was my fave character!! She is slightly OCD (actually ocd…she grooms too much and gives herself bald patches!!), but the friendliest cat you will ever meet!!
3. Where did you fit in in high school…jock, band geek, popular crowd…etc? I was shy and quiet and hated being he centre of attention.  I made it my mission in life not to draw attention to myself.  I spent quite a lot of time on my own, no one wanted to sit next to me unless they wanted to copy my work! I was pushed over, had things thrown at me, drawn on…..I could go on! I am not one of those people who would go back and live there high school lives again……i was happy to be gone and still am 😛
4.How do you react in an emergency…fight or flight, go get help, the calm one??? I don’t think I’ve ever been in a proper emergency but I’d like to think I would do my best to help!! In my head id be panicking like mad but sometimes you just have to do something you don’t want to!!
5. If they were making a movie of your life, who would you chose to play you… why? I literally have no idea at all……maybe you should ask my friends and family?? ;-P

6. Why is your best friend your best friend, what makes them so special? My best friends are my best friends because they like me for who I am 😛 I don’t have to pretend with them!
7. If money was no object, and you were going to buy yourself something completely frivolous, what would it be, and why?
Oh don’t ask me that, I am a total shopaholic!! I have a list as long as my arm of things I would like to buy!! haha!!
7. Three words that describe your personality? shy, fun, creative

8. Who was your favourite teacher and how did they influence you? I didn’t really have any teachers that influenced me! I had teachers that I liked but they were just nice and kind to me! I did have an art teacher who was fresh out of uni and she was so cool! She made me see that art didn’t mean I had to draw like the masters…..sadly I’d already applied to uni to do Psychology!!

9. What do you consider true strength? To carry on through the tough times in life even though you just want to curl up and cry!

10. What is your favourite game? (video, board, card…any kind) My fave board game is Disney Trivia because I nearly always win! My fave computer game is too hard! I love the Sims, but I also love Final Fantasy, Mass effect, Dragon age, Disgea.  My all time fave computer game is probably Fallout 3!

11.What season do you love the most, why? Spring or autumn, when its warm and sunny but not so hot that my skin frazzles and I feel like I’m melting haha!!

So there you go! Feel free to answer the questions yourself 🙂

In other news I just found out that they have some of my fave episodes of Poirot on lovefilm which means I can watch them literally any time I like HURRAH!! i’m so happy!

It’s the little things in life, is it not? 🙂
