Shamballa Bracelets

Had a sleep over at a friends a few weeks ago and she taught me how to make Shamballa Bracelets.

Her initial instructions were; over, over, under; under, under, over , so I looked at her as if to say wtf are you on about …needless to say after about 30 mins of me giggling at her instructions and my lack of understanding, I understood what she was talking about and I can now make Shamballa bracelets ūüôā

These are my creations:)

Again time has flown by..really I am sure time has sped up, what happened to those days that used to drag on for ever, I almost miss them!. ¬†Now time just whizzes¬†by and I haven’t done lifes not that … Continue reading

not perfect but still cool:)

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!

site I like and waffle..

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¬† 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:)





and this is how a light bulb should be used!..¬† ūüėÄ
