knitted mice & all things nice


























i haven't done an update post in ages, and thought it would be a good way to get my thoughts together and fill the blog/all of you lovely readers in on what i'm up to.

if you follow me on twitter or instagram, then you'll already know that last week, j and i went to look at some ragdoll kittens from a few local breeders. after a hugely stressful day and let downs, we ended up falling in love with a little female kitten who is a ragdoll cross breed, and i cannot tell you how excited i am to say that we are picking her up next week!
consequently i've spent all my free time since then making up little bits for her, including some little mice like the one above, and generally getting the flat kitten-proofed and ready. we have a name all picked out, but i'll save that for when i introduce her properly :)

on saturday, i went along to the brighton bloggers bash which was organised by alice. it was such an amazing afternoon, i met some really lovely people and it was great to finally see the awesome super+super headquarters!
it was my first time at a bloggers meet up, and despite being pretty nervous i had a great time; it's so much fun meeting like-minded people and everyone was genuinely lovely. actually having the chance to sit around chatting about blogging was really fun too, and it made me realise how much i love this community and all of the friends that i have gained because of it (n'awwh <3)
i also finally got to meet the gorgeous lauren who has written a post about the day, as have super+super over on their blog.


(for anyone in brighton, these photos were taken in snoopers paradise where they now have an old fashioned photo booth- it was so much fun!).

and finally, i've been brainstorming a new diy challenge for myself over the last few weeks and i'm almost ready to share it. it's something that i'm really excited about, and i'm trying to build it into a project that i can realistically work on in my spare time and with my minimal budget. i won't say any more for now, but i take publishing this paragraph as a little nudge for me to bring it all together!
