It’s time for something new…..

Hello everyone!

So recently I’ve been getting a little bored with Knitting! I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s because every day after work I get in and knit knit knit! I want to branch out and try some new stuff! I’m trying to start drawing a bit more (drawing is not my strong point :-P) as I used to love doing that as a young girl! You can check out my attempts at my new Blog ‘Pouring my hART out’.

Something else I’m going to try out is Cross Stitch! I’ve actually tried it in the past but never ever finished one :-S I am determined this time though!! I have grand ideas though! I was looking on Amazon and found this…..

Oh if I could do this I would be sooooooo happy!! Maybe I should start with something a little smaller though?? Or should I be brave and just go for it?? 😛

I’m still going to be knitting, I have commissions for Teddy Bear socks and jackets that I have to complete! I also have a jumper for myself and a baby blanket 🙂

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!

Papercuts – The good kind!

Hello everyone!

Just a quick one today really! I’m knit knit knitting away trying to get my custom Teddy Bear hats done 😀 I have completed one and I’ve almost finished the second one! I couldn’t take photos though as it’s been raining today and the light in here is awful!! Once the hats are done its on to some coats and socks….also for the bears! The best dressed bears in the world me thinks 🙂

So to the Paper Cuts!! I have to admit, paper cutting as an art form is something im fascinated with! Mainly because I have no clue how to do it haha! I just can’t imagine how to cut something out of paper and make it look that good!! The first time I ever saw this Paper Cutting was in a shop called Utility! It was the work of Rob Ryan!

'Believe In Goodness'

Isn’t this lovely?? If you get a chance you should definitely check out the website!! Anyway, my lovely friend Katie likes to cut paper 🙂 When she first told me about it I was very intrigued and I was right to be! Her stuff is sooooo cool!!

Facebook

Yes, that really is a Paper Cut Facebook page 😀 I couldn’t believe it when I saw it but I knew what it was as soon as I saw it!!

Jumper!

You can check out her website at Katie Cuts Paper! I’ve asked for a couple of commissions from her! Sadly I don’t have any photos of those 😦 One was a lovely pink cupcake for a cupcake swap I did and the other was a Strawberry as a Christmas present for another friend!! I REALLY wish I could do something like this!! If you would like to see my (sad) attempts at Art, check out my new Blog ‘Pouring My HART Out’!

That is it for now folks, go and enjoy the paper cutting  loveliness 🙂

Wallpaper woes!

Hi everyone!!

So it has definitely been one of those weeks this week! I won’t go into details but I’ll be glad to get it over with, lets just put it that way!! I have, however, been quite productive which is nice.  I managed to finish an owl brooch and two phone/Ipod covers but I’ve only managed to photograph one.

Blue bow phone/Ipod cover!

As you can see, my awful photography skills strike again! I attempted to change the White Balance on my camera but it has so many dials and buttons I have no idea if I actually managed it! I deffo think I need to find a tutorial or something :-S Anyway I haven’t listed this bad boy yet but hopefully I’ll get around to that later!! I am also very close to finishing a toadstool brooch which I am pretty pleased with so far 😀

I moved in to a new house in September and we decided that now is the right time to start a little redecorating! The house is fine as it is but I want to mak it a little more me……..or should I say us 😛 Me and my boyfriend have very VERY different tastes in decor so I wasn’t expecting it to be easy but to be honest it’s gone well! We’ve decided on purple/plum for the living room and have narrowed it down to two wallpapers we like……

Close up of wallpaper two.

I’m quite partial to the first one but what do you guys think? I’ve put the pictures on Facebook too and it seems to be quite even with the flower one ahead by maybe a little bit!

Side by side.

I don’t think the colours show up very well on here (my AMAZING photography skills again!!) but the colours are so rich! We are only doing the chimney breast in it as a sort of feature wall!! I’m so excited 🙂

In other news I’m thinking of starting a new Blog……don’t worry I won’t be getting rid of this one 😛 I’m hoping to get more arty and creative. I know you can’t force that sort of thing but a good friend of mine has stated that she would like to be creative for at least 10 mins a day (Yes Carmen I’m talking about you!)! It’s actually not as easy as it sounds 😛 Anyway my new Blog will hopefully be about my arty adventures…..get ready for a horror show people as I have many disasters when I pick up pencil’s paint or anything else like that 😛

And I’m going to end with some self promotion……….visit my Etsy store Snowbunnysknits for all your cute knitty needs 🙂

Knitting a sweater is fun to do!

Hey everyone 🙂

So as some of you may know I’ve started knitting myself a sweater from a book I received as a Christmas present!! It seems to be going pretty well at the moment which is always nice 😛

It's getting looooong!

This is the whole length including the rib at the bottom! It’s actually longer than I thought it was going to be so god knows if it will fit haha! It could end up as a dress haha!!

Shaping the arm hole!

I’ve even managed to start shaping the arm holes…..I always find this is the hard bit!! Anything that needs shaping I usually shape wrong!! All in all it seems to be successful!! I’m not a very disciplined knitter as I just want it to be finished as soon as possible 😛

In other news I’ve started some new media covers which I’m  really pleased with!! I’m hoping to get them finished soon! It’s always the photo taking bit that gets me though! I have to wait for a really sunny day…..and even then my photos always seem to look dark! I’m not sure where I’m going wrong :-S

Media cover!

Here is a sneak peek at the first one 😉 I will be listing it in SnowBunnysKnits as soon as I can!! Go check it out and let me know what you think!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

*I must apologise for the lack of s[elling and grammar in this post…the spellcheck isn’t working :-S eeeeeek!!

I’m not really into the whole New Years thing! I used to be as a teenager but as i’ve gotten older it’s become less and less of an event!  That’s not to say i don’t wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR, because i genuinely really do hope that everyone has a really lovely year 🙂

I don’t bother making New Years Resolutions either! I NEVER stuck to them and then i would just feel like a failure by the time i got to the end of the year!! I tried making simple ones but they don’t really seem like its worth it to me!! Of course i need to be more healthy and pro-active but I think of that as an everyday thing I should just do, of that makes sense?? haha!! I always like to know what everyone else has decided to do though!! And if I can help in anyway then i will!!

Anyway I had a really nice Christmas which was fairly surprising to me since my Dad wasn’t here to enjoy it with me! It was a very simple affair with the people i love most in the world but it was enough for me!! I got some lovely presents too!!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree......

This is the bottom of our little tree! We really need to get one of those skirt things or a bucket or something haha!!

Owl Cushion and stickers!

My friend Katie in work got me these!! I LOVE this cushion he is so amzing 😀 Who doesn’t love owls?? haha!

Anyway i’m really sorry that this post was quite picture heavy but ah well it is Christmas 😉 Anyway hope you all had a lovely NYE and that the Year to come is everything you hope for!! I am now off to do some online sale shopping….OH YESSSSSSS!!
