Im thinking warm thoughts

How many weeks till its summer? 

I am not a winter girl. Im cold, tired, achey and grumpy I feel like hibernating. I keep avoiding nights out with friends to hide away under my warm duvet. Im a total granny in winter. Perhaps I need to move to a warmer country

Heres a few pictures from my Florida travels.

I wish I was on a warm beach right now.

Some recent creations . . .

So im back home and getting my craft on again. My industrial machine is tucked away in the garage so im not making any clothing just yet.

Theres lots I want to do and one huge aim is to use up all of my scraps! I have bags and bags of them. I feel like a crazy person holding onto all these off cuts so I MUST put them to good use. So far I have been on a pom pom and yoyo making spree, check it out!

If you would like to shop just click on the pictures :)

What I wore . . .

Iv been meaning to join lookbook for a while as I want to take some photos of my daily outfits. Mainly to motivate me to actually make an effort in the morning. Working from home can be tough there is so much temptation to just work in your pjs.

Shop handmade not slave trade!

I have just watched channel 4's dispatches: Fashions dirty secrets


Id like to say that im shocked that there are sweat shops here in the UK but im not.

I am shocked that clothing is made here for major high street retailers for as little as 80p an item?! you cant even buy a loaf of bread for 80p!

Its disgusting!

Watch it for yourself and see what you think.

I have missed my old life . . .

I Have spent today taking photos for a new jewellery collection. I have kept myself sane the past few days by getting crafty without a sewing machine . . . .  my industrial is buried away under boxes and boxes of crap eek!

I forgot how much fun it could be to photograph! My DSLR has been packed away in the garage, so I dug her out and got snapping. After rummaging around to find some suitable props first that is. Im quite pleased with the set up I had considering I have no space whatsoever now that im back at my parents. They have recently moved into a bungalow and are franticly redecorating. My room is just a tad larger than my super comfy double bed, so I have been clambering all over said bed to photograph all day. The wallpaper in my new room it pretty er, retro?! . . . . I secretly like it! 

Anyway whilst editing my photos I started browsing my Lightroom library and found some pictures from my flat. Its made me all nostalgic. I miss my old home, but not the damp bits or the giant spiders. I guess you always remember things more fondly when you look back at them.

Ok heres the tour!

I lived in a huge old manor house, well part of it. How awesome are the stained glass windows! As you can see I resided under the stairs. . . .

Strangely my bathrooms, yep two of them were right in front of you as you walked in.

Check out the creepy stairs to my basement flat.

My hall I guess?

My kitchen . . . wasnt always this bare.

Sneaky peek into my bedroom. It was almost as large as my living room.

Said Living room, oh how I miss the space!

I took the photos just before I left, I wish id taken some with all my furniture in. I love checking out other peoples homes I guess im just nosey!

Im back!

. . . . . . . . dont you just love it when you get tagged on facebook!

I need to be more open and actually blog about my life, hence my rancid face above. Me + sharing my thoughts and feelings dont really mix so bear with me, im trying. 

As some of you may know I closed my shop to go traveling 5 months ago (can you believe its been that long!) It feels like I was flying out only yesterday. I have so much to ramble on about im not quite sure where to start. I have had the most fantastic adventure. In some ways im sad to be back but im also excited about getting crafty and creative again after so long . . . . I know i know, im such a geek!

Ill fill you in on my adventure little by little, im still in the process of sorting through all my photographs. I promise to blog more often though, Honest!
