I'm still here . . .

Wow . . . didn't realise how long it's been since I last posted. The fair went well. Sold a few things which was very exciting, but then spent all the money on things from Beautiful Thinghood. Oh well.

Here is a picture of my stuff . . . .



I still have some things left so if anyone wants to do a swap let me know. I made phone cases, glasses cases, CD cases and paintbrush holders/knitting needle holders, and small carry bags.

Here is a diary cover specially designed for Nick from
Bookclub Records. Vic will also be getting one soon . . . with a teapot design.

Where did the time go?

I can't believe it's been a month since I last posted. As usual too many things to do in too little time.

I have finished my back tack II bag and sent that off today, finally. I hope the person I sent it to likes it. It was really hard making something for someone I know next to nothing about.



I'm also busy trying to make things for an art and craft fair that a friend of mine has organised for November. I'm very excited, more so about seeing everyone else's stuff than actually selling some of mine . . . for the first time EVER!

Oh, and I keep forgetting that in amongst all this I am supposed to be studying. . . not a great deal of focus has been going into that lately. As of today that is going to change!

I have just finished watching the first season of Scrubs. Oh, so very funny!

Amelia and Xander

Amelia is a very happy girl. . .



The reason why? . . . because on the weekend I made her a little guy friend. His name is Xander.



And the thing she is very excited about is that he wears great shoes (yes, Amelia is the kind of girl who wears clips in her hair and judges boys by their shoes).



Here is the two of them together . . .

Daydreaming . . .

So much for focusing on my study all I seem to be doing lately is daydreaming . . .

No time for craftyness

Haven't had much time to pursue crafty projects lately. Last I did was a little doll like amelia, and a cd cover for red felt flower for her birthday. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of them.

I have been busy trying to organise my life - seems to be on ongoing project for me. I started my PhD this year, so at the moment I'm trying to juggle that and some research assistant work and still have some time to myself to socialise and be creative. I'm slowly getting there.

Have recently purchased myself some new music from the wonderful bookclub records. On high rotation on the CD player at the moment are: Sprites "Bionic Hands" EP, Maths and Physics Club "Weekends Away" EP, Love Ninjas "I'm really sorry" EP, Tullycraft "Disenchanted hearts unite", and Magic Marker compilation "A House full of friends". Will I ever meet a guy who thinks the way the guys who write these songs do? Sigh . . .

Some more craftyness . . .

A bag I made for little moo's 1 st birthday, so she can take her favourite toys out on her adventures . . .



and this weekends procrastination from study . . .
