Today I have been making a whole bunch of these pretties whilst soaking up the glorious sunshine while it lasts! The ginger bread boy was quite happy to toddle about in the garden and it made for a quite lovely afternoon! Normally my crafting sessions are relegated to those precious few hours when little people aren't there to eat/lose/mess up (or indeed all of the aforementioned) your crafty creations. Total bliss!

Pretty things

I have been pretty busy with pub stuff at the min to do much crafting, however, we had a 60's and 70's night last night so I got to make lots of groovy flowers and butterflies! I will have to post some pics. It was fancy dress and I'm glad so many people made an effort. Lurking about the internet looking at lots of lovelies this morning and this caught my eye the heather bailey store. I had to go and hide my credit card before some serious damage was done!

Stitch and sparkle

Continuing with my new found love of all things fairy like I have decided to take the plunge and purchase this:

despite its rather ungenerous review (lets hope I'm not as disappointed). I love the idea of the peg dolls although they are all too similar to some previous work of mine ( I learned to make peg dolls when I worked at the museum) and I had a pretty bad sense of deja vu..........

I'm also loving the fact that I recently got in touch with an old friend of mine from school and was amused to discover that our mutual intrest in boy bands of the time has now developed into a mutual love of crafts.....we are both self professed craft geeks! and although I don't have an etsy shop as yet, hers its up and running and contains all mannor of loveliness for you to adorn yourself with! take a look here.
