Clearwater Beach, FL

making a mess, again

Today i bought some paper punches that i had been wanting for a long time but are pretty overpriced at home. Anyway because im such a kid i couldn't wait to test them out so as soon as i got in i had a play around and made a mess.
It's given me an idea of some stuff to make for my designers marketplace stall.

Today we visited Universal Studios and made our way to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

I took some snaps of the inside of Honeyduke's sweet shop. Filled with sweets and pretty pastel colours.

Flo Rida

Back in November time i made cushions and flat samples for my Final Major Project at college.

One of the flat samples was Florida themed, the only reason it was a flat sample rather than a cushion was due to lack of time. After the project had been handed in my Mum asked if she could have the Florida sample for our home in Florida. Rather than just framing or hanging it i made it into a cushion.

Here it is in its new home.

T Minus 7 Days

This time next week i will finally be at our home in Florida. It feels like i have been waiting FOREVER for this to come around, to say i am getting impatient is an understatement!
This holiday is much needed, i feel like i have become stuck in a bit of a rut.

The Sketchbook Project Update

I ashamed to say that i have neglected my sketchbook for The Sketchbook Project. Amongst making custom orders, wedding gifts and getting prepared for Designers Marketplace my poor little sketchbook has been left untouched.
After reading my usual daily blogroll i found a few posts which instantly inspired me and reminded me to pay a little more attention to my poor old sketchbook, which has to be sent back in January and it is looking pretty sorry for itself in it's current state. Im hoping to take it to Florida with me in a couple of weeks and i will (hopefully) fill it with lots of photographs, drawings and tonnes of crafty sketchbooking stuff which is abundant and dirt cheap over there.

I mean Walmart alone has about 3 aisles dedicated to crafting and scrapbooking, Target is also one of my favourite places in the world! .... This is sad i know, but you just don't get stuff like that on that kind of scale here (in England) unless you visit places like Hobby Craft which still isn't the same and i also HATE that place.

Anyway enough of my embarrassing craft related confessions and rantings....
