catch up

sorry for my little disappearance this last week. thank you to everyone who commented on my last post, i really appreciate all of your words. 

things have been pretty busy lately, a feeling that i associate with christmas time- although i am now making bits for the shop as well as all my family's presents. i wanted to post about what i've made for them, but i have a sneaky feeling that my lil sis reads my blog & then the surprise would be ruined! 
i've also been working on a few commissions of this snood that i posted about. i've been debating putting it up in the shop as a special order- they take me a long time to make so it would be on a pre-order basis... let me know if anyone is interested. 
the scarf in the top photo is one that i made for j about a month ago now, it's about 6 feet long!
i've also been collecting boxes for the last few months, and have started wrapping them in christmas paper for everyone's presents. i thought it was going to be an easy task, but it's actually pretty fiddly! hopefully the effect will be worth it- i'm trying to find some pretty shredded tissue paper or something similar to go inside so if anyone knows where i could find some i'd be very grateful! 
and lastly, just a quick snap of my nails at the moment- plain and simple, but such a perfect colour. 


  1. I love the box idea, I bet they're going to look so pretty covered in Christmas paper! x
