I am looking forward to this particular sunday today to get some more crafts done. I work at the local chinese restaurant answering the phones - to make some extra money for crafts- and last night was the most difficult shift I have <b>EVER</b> done. Must be an uproar in chinese towards christmas!
Anywho, So today my plan was to make some more christmas decorations and even wrap some of the ones i've made already. How exciting! I like wrapping the presents because then the names can be ticked off and they are complete.
Also, mum has asked me to make a wine holder out of felt. Hm. sounds a bit of a challenge but I think I am up to it!

Well keep everyone up to date on today's craft adventures. (Unfortunately only till 5 oclock, then I have to go to work! :()

Seeeeee ya

A non-craft-related blog. Do you ever forget you have something? Especially something that is so hard to forget! Well I forgot i had a tattoo. And i felt bad for the little guy. So I am posting a picture of the little caterpillar to let him know, you aren't being neglected wee chap!

P.s. Also got a little hair cut today. in a wee bob with it getting longer at the front!

This week has been a dream. No university due to the snow and have basically been snowed in!
So what i've done the whole week is crafty things - and loved every minute! Today I got up quite early and made a list of what i had to do..

By eye mask I mean that on Red Velvet Art there is a picture of two hand-made looking eye-masks that you would wear when you were sleeping and felt that this would be a great thing to make for me and for christmas presents! Cannot believe how amazing crafts are.. things like the masks for example. I was going to buy one in topshop for about £6, and have now made a lovely one with big exaggerated eye lashes! It is just brilliant. 
They aren't completely finished yet because I needed some elastic to finish them off. I did something silly with the elastic tho. I asked Cam to pick me up 2metres of elastic and I meant to say 1cm thick. But for some reason i said 5 cm thick..so it is rather large! so will have to cut it and hope that it doesn't fray! 

I hope people are reading my blog, I want to really hit it off in the blogging world!

Crafty Rooms

Last night I stayed up till 3.30am staring at the screen with disbelief at the different craft rooms that all these crafty people have. I also found it amazing that there are so many bloggers out there, with all their own fresh ideas and ways of expressing themselves. I loved it! Such an amazing experience to be involved in.

Anyway.. back to the craft room. Currently, I have a dining room table. No Joke. In my mums kitchen, but the sewing machine needs to be moved every day, and everything put away. Ideally I would love ribbons all in reels displayed where i can see them, labelled tubs and boxes and jars of buttons, a table for my sewing machine with a big light above it. And i would love loads of haberdashery. I feel thats my problem at the moment..I don't have enough stuff to decorate things!

here is some of the rooms that I would love to re-create.

And so many more!! I found these images on google images but most of them linked to peoples blogs, so if it is yours, then I love it! 
And of course, I love pink suede shoe's craft closet and her tape and ribbon display!

Christmas Decorations.

I have been inspired by the likes of Kirstie's Homemade Home on Channel 4, Cath Kidston's Sew! and of course pink suede shoe. (If you haven't seen her stuff, have a look. She is perhaps the most inspirational person on the internet. And currently my idol!)  
So due to the snow day I got a head start on my Christmas decorations. I have a list of people to make for:
1. Cameron's Mum and Dad.
2. Emma and Paul.
3. Sean's Birthday/Christmas.
And then out-with the list, I am making things for my own tree for a proper homemade christmas. And hopefully by next year everything could be homemade!

I gathered some bits and pieces and got some felt from John Lewis and created 4 little decorations. They aren't perfect, but I like how unique they are!
My Christmas Cracker. Although I realise now this could
be seen as a fish.. 

Snow Man. I spent extra time on this for the scarf.
I hand stitched the scarf bit by bit to make it look like it's a knitted scarf. 

Christmas Tree. Perhaps a bit too much stuffing! 

I personally love this. I made sure that I
positioned the needle on the sewing machine
to make it look like the patches had
been hand stitched on!
