Happy Spring!

It's been a while so I thought I'd better make an appearance on my blog haha

I've had chance to make a card for my Misi and Etsy shops. It is a new design I was trying out and it came out pretty good I think.
I coloured one of my new favourite stamp images at the moment - Spring Bringer from Sylvia Zet, do check out her stamps (Wee Stamps) they are adorable.
Using this as a topper I made a 4 drawer easel card for a little girl.

Here is a close up of the digistamp

So cute, I can't wait to colour the next fairy in.

Freya the Summer Fruit Fairy

haha I've called my new fairy Freya and it turns out she is a "Summer fruit fairy" so called because of her gorgeous berry coloured dress. Up until an hour ago she was bald but now she has some lovely fashioned plaits, never thought I'd be able to say "I've been plaiting a fairy's hair"!

She is waiting to be listed in my Folksy shop in April as I've joined the yet to be named group that tries to list an item a day for April, Worried look on face right now.

Where does the time fly?

It's been a busy and at sometimes hellish 2 years since I last posted, my mum was very ill for 2 summers and I had to care for her along with everything else going on in everyday life. Anyhoo I'm going to try and make a come back with the crafting, I've just begun to feel like starting again and have taken up needle felting = which I love!! LOVE

I ordered my first lot of wool about 3 weeks ago, maybe less, and there's no stopping me. I'm a little limited on colours at the moment till I can build up some wool but I can't wait for Mr postieman to arrive this week :)

Half the fun is naming the fairy folk, if you have any ideas for mermaid/fairy names please let me know for future use

Over the weekend my new stamp has arrived with the "cats whiskers" name on it, i had it custom made and it looks great, I'm really pleased with it. I got it from "lovetocreatestamps" on etsy

the faded stamping image is due to my poor ability and not the stamp so I've been practising on everything in sight!

Also over the weekend i decided to treat myself to a small drink of jacques , this ended in an empty bottle less than an hour later Oops! I then thought it would be a good idea to go on facebook and "make friends" with everyone I'd ever met in my past - suffice to say a few have ignored me! probably best he he

One friend from college though did add me and saw my jewellery, she then purchased a pair of earrings for her mum's birthday so that was great. It also turns out her mum lives a few houses up from me on the next road!

I thought i better start making some more jewellery if I'm going to be supplying 2 shops so while I'm in the mood I've been hard at it, i used some of my favourite beads that I've been hanging on to (just to look at!!) i love them and didn't want to use them but i have so many, I wont mind if it doesn't sell :>)

I have just made a banoffee tart, normally i make the caramel from scratch but yesterday i saw a tin of it already done from condensed milk, a new thing from carnation, so i thought I'd try it and it's great!

As much as i would have liked to take a pic of it, it didn't stay in one piece long enough!! - not only due to me can i add :>)

I must purchase a new printer, mine has died a death and i keep preying on friends to print everything off for me. I don't have much luck with printers, my last one died after I'd just purchased 2 new cartridges and put them in so that was a waste of £30!

After sorting through my beads yesterday i did manage to play around and make a couple of things, I've listed 2 bracelets;

Yesterday i went to the local superstore which has a largish craft section and i came across some large plastic storage boxes, i thought very cheap, so i purchased 3. Now as sad as it seems i was really excited at getting home and sorting through my beads to put them into the new storage boxes, i also hoped it would give me inspiration to make something as it's been a while, i've lost my mojo at the mo :>(
i don't think it's worked as I'm still not inspired but they do look pretty! lol
I just need another 3 next time i go and i should be fairly organised, which is a first for me!!
