Roll on 2010!

So we're in the eve of the New Year and like everyone else i have fantastic intentions for 2010! I have decided that i'm going to paint the whole upstairs of my house and stick to my chore list everyday. I'm also gonna give my Etsy store loads and loads of love and attention so i will definately be crafting like a crazy woman! Keep you eyes open for loads of new stuff.. I have a million ideas already in mind:o)

My blog is also on the resolution list so prepare to see plenty of new updates and i'll be adding tutorials as i find them. I have Loads already saved to my favourites so i'll be adding them first. I'll also be blogging about my life with my 2 crazy babies! Should be a laugh for all you mummies out there. Let's just say that i'm no Brie Vandecamp! So a Happy New Year to you all and i'll chat to ya in 2010:o)

So now i make BOWS!!!!!!!!

I decided last week that it was time to bite the bullet and make some bows. I took out some instructions i bought months and months ago and i made a little boutique bow which i'm quite proud of! When i made that one i cut about 80 more pieces of ribbon and got them ready and practiced and practiced until my hands were sore! I am very proud to say that i got feedback from some bonafide bow makers and they think my bows are very good so i'm confident enough to offer them in my etsy store. They are itty bitty bows measuring 1.5" and they come in a huge assortment of designs and colours. Keep your eyes peeled bow lovers cos they're coming to my etsy store as soon as the photography allows:o) :o)

Ladies, there are some real little cuties in there and looking at the photos i can't help but feel a bubble of pride in my belly (well i hope it's pride...LOL). I want to wait and put them all up together so please keep your eyes peeled cos there will be a tornado of new clippies and bands coming in this week:o) I've given a little taster!

The Weekend!

Ok so i went and stayed with my friend fot the weekend which means........... i got absolutely NOTHING done.! Do ya ever just have times like that??? I always have the greatest intentions to get it all done and 2 weeks later i'm still no closer:o( I wanted to get my Etsy shop all stocked up last week and it's still empty! I've taken pictures of a lot of my stuff and edited them and got them ready but they're just sitting on my laptop cos i always find listing items time consuming.. Oh well, maybe i'll get it all done this i said.........Great intentions:o)

Nothing, nada, zilch:o(

SO i've had a very very quiet couple of weeks! I haven't done one thing on the crafting front so i'm totally looking forward to getting loads done over the next few days. I have all sorts of ideas for clippies that i wanna make. I should be writing all down but i haven't even had the time to do that. On the bright car is spotless. I was like a psycho cleaning lady this evening cleaning it. I was sitting on the pavement outside my house on the ground with my vacuum cleaner cleaning the mats from inside the car and people kept grinning at me as they walked past. In my defense, my car was never so dirty. It took me all of 3 hours to clean it!!!!!!!!!! Oh well, told ya i had no news.LOL!!!! Back again tomorrow and hopefully i'll have 50 million clippies made............sigh!

FOE headband tutorial

Ok my dears.....

As promised, here is a link to the FOE headband tutorial i made for the Hip girl clips forum:

It is EXTREMELY easy to make and they're definately the softest headband you could possibly have for a baby or toddlers little head. I can tell you that my one year old doesn't even know she has it in her hair when she wears it. Totally comfortable and silky soft:o)

I'll be posting a tutorial to make FOE headbands in the next day or 2 so keep watch. This is a really easy one:o) Until then, ciao!

Once i actually got to sit down to it they didn't take long to make and i have to blow my own trumpet and say that they're totally cute!

A busy day!

Well today i had a pretty productive day:) I finished my felt flowers...........yipee.......but i haven't taken pics!!!!!!! Keep a look out for them though because it's just a matter of getting my camera out which i'll do tomorrow (toddlers permitting.....LOL).

The flowers were unbelievably easy to make. I just hand cut flower shapes from felt. I put 2 together and sewed around them with embroidery floss in complimetary colours. I'm really looking forward to getting them on my clippies and into my Etsy store.

Anyway, enough of my yabbering and until tomorrow, nitey nite;)

New Day!

Well with all my good intentions yesterday i managed to get nothing done! I was laid up in bed all day with the flu:( I thought i'd get myself out of bed and motivated to get some stuff done but i came half way downstairs and went straight back up them again!

On a lighter note though i feel MUCH better today and i'm raring to go. I'm gonna get all my felt flowers finished and i want to get my tuxedo bows done as well. We'll see how it goes though....LOL! Look out for pictures. I hand cut them and sewed around them and they're coming out really cute:)
