Treasure!

I have made other things too. Please allow me to impress myself onto your retina (not like that): Bird necklace (polymer clay and nail varnish) Flowers (crochet, beads) Hanging Indian style charm (polymer clay, beads)   Cushion (liberty fabric)   And that’s what I’ve done recently. 🙂 Adieu!

I’ve been away, but I’ve been busy!

Hi hi hi hi! It seems like such a long time since I’ve posted. I’ve always been too tired to do so, even though I do peruse everyone else’s posts on WordPress to see what people are doing! Well, I got a new teaching job (permanent! woo hoo!) at a lovely new school; I went […]

Art Nouveau Bag

Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]

Crochet calms me down and I have made another hat.

I have had a very long and busy day. But I’m not stressed. This is partly due to having a two hour nap when I got home from work (note to self: must petition the government to make it compulsory for all people to hibernate in January) and partly due to crocheting on my journey […]

It’s a first – I’m making things and teaching AT THE SAME TIME

It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]

Happy New Year! Here’s some exciting new things that I have made!

Happy new year! New beginnings, fresh starts and exciting new projects to contemplate! Here are some finished works from previous posts (fan necklaces) and new projects (brooches, pendants and books). I will be selling these over in my Etsy shop soon. The weather is awful at the moment. It’s dark and stormy outside – but […]

Necklace Experiment

Hola! Como estas? I have time off from school, so I’m making loads of stuff! I’m experimenting at the moment. I went to the Tate Modern a couple of weeks ago to see the Paul Klee exhibition, which was fab! It also had a big impact on me. Being an admirer of Klee, I thought […]

David Bowie phone case and other stuff…

Hola! How’s it going? It’s been a long week. From homeboys ‘bigging up’ my crochet on the bus, to a five-year old saying that I look like a boy then losing my diary AND THEN eating the spiciest Mongolian beef evah! It’s been busy but fun. I even had a lie in on Wednesday. I […]

Beaded Pendant

I’ve come over all Cleopatra and created a centre piece for a necklace. I get all of my gorgeous beads from the lovely Sheila at FunkyMo, who is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I will eventually get round to beading a cord for this beauty and attaching a clasp. I basically […]
