Just WOW!!

The last few weeks have been a whirl wind… Amazing things happening, new beginnings, emotions being flung around and being reconnected again! I must admit, even with the emotions being flung around, I’ve enjoyed every minute of February so far.
The only annoying thing is I still don’t feel too comfortable going into too much detail just yet, but I’ll do a really good catch up with what’s happening in a month or so!!
One of my ultimate highlights this month was the return of some awesome friends of mine. They went to live out in the land of Oz (Australia), a few years ago, but they clicked their heels and returned home. (I’m sure they took a plane actually, but it doesn’t sound as fun, right?). It was a lovely surprise last Sunday dinner time to get a knock at the door.. I had no idea it would be my beautiful friend and her family, needless to say I cried a little with excitement :’)
She has been an inspiration to me and has supported me no end, even from the other side of the world.. I’m blessed just to even know her!! So as a celebration to the families return I created a treasury… Welcome Home!!!!  I hope you enjoy it
Apart from that I’ve been a busy bee! Working, getting organised, getting creative and looking for more pretty buttons. I’ve also been on the hunt for new clothes, I’m left with rather a small selection of clothes to wear and 5 bags of stuff ready to go carboot~ing with. But it gives me an excellent excuse to go shopping >_<
I did, however, buy these buttons the other week.
My new pretty buttons ♥
and then I made these
Little Bracelets for Little Wrists
I made some other bits and bobs too, but I haven’t got around to taking pictures, as the last few days I’ve had a bit of a cold and I’ll be honest, it’s made me a little bit lazy! But I plan to get back to 100% soon by dosing up on vitamin c, pain killers and plenty of fluids.
I can’t wait to get settled into this new life of mine and on track for keeping you guys in the ‘nine fruits pie’ loop… Thank you for being patient with me, and I’ll be back again real soon!!

Creativity and Snow

What a BRiLLiANT week!!
A very Creative and POSiTiVE week!!
I got back to the drawing board, so to speak, and making some pretties!!!
Peach Melba button bracelet, Hot and Funky bead and button bracelet, Rainbow bracelet

Easter Earrings on the way to completion

Oranges and Lemon button bracelet, Playful pastimes button bracelet

I also went a bit OLD SCHOOL and got some pony beads out, I made retro style bracelets (well retro to me).. I haven’t made bracelets like this in years and it was really quite refreshing and FUN!!
Pony Beads Bracelets

I also couldn’t resist going through some fabrics I have.. Just refreshing my brain with what I have, and what I want to make with them.. They could really do with a good press, but I’ll get on to that when I get round to getting the sewing machine out :s
Pocket Pixie by Alexander Henry.. Pink Dandelion and Pink Mushroom City

Summersault fabric by Free Spirit. Apricot Raindrops and Cinnamon Pixie Stick

I think the animal one is french, but I can't remember the name off-hand. The bottom one is Appleville by Robert Kaufman Blue Apples

How Pretty are those…. Gorgeous eh? I can’t wait to use them. I also got to catch up with a lovely friend this week, post a few parcels and go out in the snow. This week really has been lovely.
Not the best picture in the world... but it's my shoes.. in the snow!!

 Finally, I made an ultra warm wintry treasury over on Etsy called Hot Chocolate ♥ Hope it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy!!
Right I’m heading off, but I hope you all have a truly lovely week ♥
