Craftyness takes hold at the strangest of times,when you’re not a constant crafter.
9am yesterday morning sitting in bed with little lady, I had a bag of wire, couple of pairs of pliers and beads next to my bed (don’t ask why!) so I picked up the wire and started to bend it about till it became a little lady, and little lady liked it so much we made another 8, which are now hanging from the sitting room ceiling, and more have been requested today:)

Ok I don’t remember when I made my last post, even though I said something along the lines of putting stuff on here more regularly..mmm well sorry but I get sidetracked looking at sooo many other wonderful (and some not so great) crafty sites that by the time I finished I’m asleep! what can I say!
But I am trying to be a bit more crafty myself, this week I made a dress for my youngest daughter:) I am happy with the overall look seen as I didn’t use a pattern,they soooo confuse me, but on closer inspection there are several problems..linning being the main issue, but that’s inside so I won’t go into any detail;), it is too wide at the shoulders, as you can see in the picture and the stitching looks like piping hahaha but I won’t kick myself too much as I am a total novice, and the little lady loves it.
I’m also not a great photographer and it seems I lack the ability to store a picture without deleting it!
This week I shall be attempting a bag for the eldest lady!
This post just made me think of a good friend of mine, who loves to decopage:)
and another who is a great lomographer…(it would be a passionate joining if they were one!)
Whist browsing one of cruncybetties blogs http://www.crunchybetty.com/crunchy-teens-acne-busting-aspirin-honey-mask-and-toner ..it got me thinking ‘I haven’t made a scrub, lip balm or cream for aaaaages’ and I used to love my own throughly runny & messy honey oat scrub mmmm I could reallllly do with a scrub now!! but my new abode doesnt have a bath just a shower nevertheless I think it is time to start making these wonderful body crafts again and clean the mess with my new soft hands:)
