Monday, Monday...

I forgot to tell you about my baking failure at the weekend - in order to cheer myself up I made multi-coloured cakes however they didn't quite turn out as planned and overflowed in the oven - P's is now calling them 'cake-splats' which was pretty much what they looked like! I managed to salvage about 2 good ones. Splat or not they still tasted pretty yummy!





Paperchase have the best pens - this one cheers me up at work

Work avoidance...create a pistachio Hodgeheg


2 new fabrics and one new sewing machine later...now what to create?

Gummi and jelly heaven




I wish my street was this colourful and edible! This light is amazing! Hmm I wonder if you can make something similar with a pack of Tangtastics?

Quiff and his prickles


Neglected

I have utterly neglected to keep up-to-date and have been absent for a bit- sorry - well actually I've just been mega busy and dashing up and down the country for Christmas and New Year.

Mustache Collection Ladies T-Shirt - Sizes S, M, L, XL
here's one of them
Happy Belated New Year! New Year's resolutions??? Well... mine is going to try and avoid the norm/high street/ things everyone else usually have and do. I've started quite well by investing in some amazing individual T-Shirts
which I love from etsy - if you are yet to discover the wonderful world of Etsy then please please if you do anything else in your life add Etsy to your favourites - it is a truly inspirational place to disappear to!

(Maybe it should also be to keep this more up-to-date?!)

Another is to be more creative...creativity in general.

This year is also supposed to be the 'year of the house' and so I am really hoping to extend the non-highstreetnessification to the plans, decoration and furniture of the house....watch this space.

MA module 2 began this week - yey I got through Module 1 and was relatively pleased with my results although could always do better (the joys of being an only child - competitive with yourself ;))

The sequential Image is the next challenge so time to get going with it and see what happens! :)
