got back from amandas about an hour ago- we sepnt the evening writing our sample article for oh comply magazine.
words and photos sorted- not it just eeds some photoshopping and putting the two together.

we think we might make a craft book..especially since we have one set of instructions and photos done..but we shall do some pricing up and then we shall see..

i did make my paper bead bracelets yesterday- i think they came out pretty funky tho maybe they need some kind of varnishing..
paper isn't awesomely waterproof..
the look cool though. and they weren't as fiddley as i expected.

i made pants!
i am so impressed.
definately something that needs refining..but yeah! home made pants!

*5 petal flowers

i got the big paper for the wide game and the template for the freindship circles. ive decided against junk giraffes- i think salt dough instead!

so now its just gods eyes and magazine jewelry to make!
ill make a start on my magazine beads now :)

vintage shopping
serendipity fayre and vintage pretty!
i did soo much buying- i got a new 50s dress, some cards for peoples birthdays , a necklace thats made out of a rock and an old guitar sting (so much better than it sounds..) and some hand made pants! though i haven't decided yet if they're for me of for my mate for her birthday..almost too good to give away!

AND i got my shirt for the sewing course at the milkwood gallery- its white, blue and orange, really 70s and its got cyclists all over! amazing!

had more cake in debenhams and dinner in bella itallia- it was good to catch up wit h amanda,jen and andy and get some mooching in- any excuse to get out of the house!

i have almost written my sample piece for oh comely magazine- thats my aim for this evening! (since i have the house to myself for now!)
i might also have a go at setting up my sewing machine (no further ambitions than treading it correctly- and even that will be a bonus!)

jen, amanda and i are thinking we might have a stall at a vintage pretty fayre and see if we can make some pennies for our crafty type creations. we shall see..
it would be a ice way to meet people and a pleasurable way to spend a saturday. its just weather or not we could make enough stuff to fill a stall..
probably, i could make bathbombs and fascinators, amanda will make her jewelary and jen with her paintings. i guess we could make some bunting and stuff too so..i dunno..needs more though.
planning was never my strong point.

yesterday i made bunting.
no cheating.
hand sewn.
double sided.
the front room looked like a village fete.
maybe if i make enough bunting we can have a fete?

signed up for a toy making workshop today- should be a laugh.
its to co-incide with the opening of the art installation that i submitted my toys for so it'll be a nice excuse to have a nose round and see for myself!

tomorrow i will try and get a place for this:

Be resourceful and creative this spring!Make a summer dress or blouse from a man's old shirt or PJ's......
Learn or improve

Wednesday evenings 6 – 8pm, starting April 21st

5 week course @ £50.00
To reserve your place, contact....
milkwoodgallery, Tel: 029 20473373
Bring along a man's old shirt or PJ's, fabric scissors, enthusiasm & sewing machine (optional).

i am now trying to convince my housemate to donate a shirt.
not overly successfully.

i also got a new job- so possibly now no dreadlocks- i got a job at the mercure lodge in cardiff- the uniform is like an old fashioned air hostess- skirt, suit jacket, blose with cufflinks, neck scaff-tie thing..mental.
and i will be a duty manager.
hahaha..my hotel now..:D

i went vintage shopping on saturday and i got a 60s dress that looks like a table cloth and a 20s purse.
i also got another 50s dress pattern (genuine this time) and some 70s crazy blue paisly material to make my shift style dress from..wish me like- this will be a proper challenge!

its the easter holidays as of next wee so i need to make my brownies examples- as follows:
*mexican gods eye
*friendship circle
*5 petal flower hairclips (oh yeah, i can so teach 8 year olds to sew..this may be ambitious)
* magazine jewelry
*junk giraffes

AND i need to construct a wide game chart for collecting things..this all calls for some really big paper, and some shopping.

hmm..i resolved to be more creative; or risk madness so;

on monday daytime i handed in some home made toys- my sock puppet example and my "ugly doll" i made in milgis- to helen friks exhibition in chapter:

we made giraffes for the 1 million giraffes website on monday night:

these are my attempts- it is worth bearing i mind that i said "creative" not "artistic". we also made more bath bombs..
this is the recipie incase anyone was curious:


i have spent thisevening eating cake with sprinkles on it and monging out in various pubs and houses- so, happy st pat's day i guess!! woo!! bring on the gin and cake with sprinkles!!
AND i got permission to dreadlock my hair from work! so get in!!
