bird crazy

its been in my head for a while now, I WANT TO BE A BIRD, they have such a nice life, fluttering here and fluttering there, and occasionally pooping on peoples heads just for their own amusement. they eat nuts and berries, i love nuts covered in chocolate !

so to please my fascination i have been printing birds,sewing birds,giving them big eyes and ribbon them names like bob,billy and brian and giving them lives....
in my next life its a birds life for me,not one that gets eaten though !

so much time and so little gets done

my second post and its about how so many days have gone by and i have done so little. where does all the time go ? how do i do nothing day ater day ? in my head i have a thousand things that need done, but only a few seem to have become reality, i have been making plushies, printing and painting, sewing and photographing,but still nothing is in my etsy shop, thats thursdays job, im determined to list on thursday, i will i promise.
but even though time is going so fast its still not stopped me checking out my fave blogs and just browsing through the wonderfull web to find new treasures to inspire and covet. in my head i have spent a small fortune purchasing all the amazing things i have seen.
anyway its my bed time so for now ill add some pics of whats going in my new etsy shop.

a happy accident to love.

more happy accidents are bound to happen.

my first ever post on my first ever blog

OH this is kinda scary but exciting at the same time, i have wanted to start a blog for a while now, ever since i have been reading other folks blogs, and getting inspiration from their/your creative colourful lives.

I'm not sure what i will be posting on here, but i know i do lead a strange colourful life, filled with crafting and creating, texture and pattern and sounds and sights, from the things i make to the grand musicals i watch and the craft stores i rummage through and the friends i have who are just as inspiring.

i will post pics of what i make and what i buy and what i see, i will comment on things i like and things i don't, if anything I'm gonna use this blog as a journal of me and whats making me tick.

so if your reading this, hello, and welcome, I'm sorry for my bad grammar and spelling but life is too short for me to be worrying about capital letters and the correct use of , and .

I'm now going to try and attach a pic with this, wish me luck. xx

ooh it seems to have worked,
I'm the mermaid with the flowing hair, the other lovely is my man/boyfriend/husband/best friend,David, call him what you will but hes mine.

he recently told me that he "likes my creativity but hates what i create", that made me laugh so much that its now our little joke, i know he don't mean it but hes brilliant at telling it how it is, he tells me when things are rubbish and when things are good, and he tolerates my liking for strange ornaments that i find in junk shops and at boot fairs.

I'm now going to put some pics on of my little house so you can see how we live surrounded by organised chaos, i like the phrase show and tell, that other bloggers use, so that's what I'm doing,and from these pics you might just learn a little about what inspires me and how it translates into what i make and how most things i do are full of colour and texture.

i just love my hi sign, a bargain from the car boot sale we go to every Sunday, oh and see my strange donkey flower vase, just could not leave without him.

my house is full of things i have made, like the cushions here, mixed with shop bought ones, like the ikea one also on the chair,next to more framed pics and a brass deer head ?, again i just had to get it.

we have shelves piled high with things, Disney figures, wind up toys,pictures and other little things that i just like.Davids fave Disney character is stitch.

i also buy fab stuff from other makers, and this ceramic palm tree on a jelly mould is one of my faves,i love it but David hates it,wait till you see my ceramic pineapple on a ceramic pillow.i will list my fave makers in another post.when i learn how to attach links etc. ?

one of my favourite things to find is animal shaped plant pot holders, and this little man is sat proudly next to my sink guarding the plants from bugs.

and my final picture for now is of my Mr potato head, that we made in disneyworld in Florida, hes proudly sat on my sink. next to some signs i just like and a lovely use of kids letter blocks.

oh i can already tell that I'm gonna get addicted to this blogging life, just like I'm addicted to looking at others, oh and I'm addicted to etsy, I'm new to that also but its my new project. more later about that , i don't want anyone looking at it until I'm happy with how it is and happy with what i have on their.
so for now, i know know one other than those i tell to read this will look at it, but if you do leave me a comment and laugh at my terrible english.
