Notebooks & Buttons.

Hello my lovelies. Its 2019 and we are defo making progress through this new year. I’ve even made some new products to. Both of these where projects I had been wanting to do for a while and finally decided to give them a go. The final product is something I’m very proud of and will be doing more of.

Check out https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheNysnoRose for all my products and enjoy a 50% off sale.

So lets get cracking with these new items. The first one is something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s so simple but I over complicted it. Making it out that it was harder than it actually was.

Moon and Sun blank notebooks.

These are great A5 sized blank notebooks. And my first of hopefully many more to come along. Both hand drawn with a white gelly roll pen and hand sewn for binding. I drew these designs a while back and had wanted to do something with them as they where spur of the moment kind of ideas.

The longest part of these 2 was the drawing part. I was worried that they wouldn’t look the way I wanted them too. However they turned out really well. The sewing part was the hardest. Gave myself a good one as I tried to push the needle through the pages. (Note to self, if larger than 17 sheets think gonna be a nightmare!) Please note that these are not in the sale.

Button Heart on Canvas

My heart will go on with this one. This lovely piece is my newest piece prefect for valentine’s day. It will eventually go on the shop but for now will be used to show size and shape for commission pieces. If you would like one please message me through my shop’s facebook page here:  https://www.facebook.com/TheNysnoRose with colour prefernce.

Now back onto the piece itself. I like buttons, I have ALOT of buttons. Maybe an unhealthy amount of buttons but hay I’m a crafter. Stuff like that happens. I had a few blank canvases lying around, also finally got my hands on a hot glue gun. I planned out the position of each piece first and the stuck em into place. I learned very quickly that was a silly idea as the buttons moved around alot. Plus I have sure serious blisters now on my right hand. My poor finger tips! 😓

Hope you guys love these pieces just as much as I do. What would you like to see next?

Until next time my lovelies. Xx

Moonlight Melts – Wax Melts Review. 

Right now my flat is smelling like a bakery with freshly made cakes. And it smells amazing. As soon as you open the door, the smell just invites you in. And I love it. 

Coffee caramel cream. Yum. 

Currently burning the Coffee Caramel Cream by the Moonlight Melts. A small company based here in Britain who makes everything by hand!!!! *whispers, who is currently working on the new autumn range!!!* Can not wait for them to be added to the shop. 

Love the little stickers that where used in the packaging. Just adds that little reminder that it was a small buisiness that I bought from and will defo continue to support for the future. 

Coffee Caramel Cream Wax Welt
This is the one thats currently being melted and the scent as I’ve already said is just amazing. A lovely blend of caramel and coffee with neither over powering the other. This is Ross’s favourite one at the moment, not sure if thats mainly due to the caramel. 😄

I also got these too as it was only £1.80 for a pack of 4. Can’t wait to melt the Sea Salt & Woodsage for that lovely blend of oceon and earthy scents. Black Kiss is gonna be amazing as well. Okay if I’m honest they’re all gonna smell great! Wish I could box the scent up and send it too you all. 

Now I’m off to enjoy a cuppa and indulge in my lovely smelling flat. 

Until next time my lovelies.

Our First Christmas Tree.

Another day, and yet another post. This one is all about our tree. It’s not as flashy as some trees, not quirky or vintage. But it is our first tree. (Ross and I!) Which makes it a little more special, it’s finally Christmas in our house.

I love it. Naturally cause I put it up on the 1st of December. It was a little difficult but got there in the end. Super excited to see my wee niece’s face when she see’s it, and her name on labels under the tree!! Gotta love the lights and tinsel, a great way to show off some colour. There is no topper to the tree (Ross ain’t to keen on the star or angel for certain reasons) I’m hoping to find a cute little snowman instead! This Christmas is gonna be a first for so many things:

– Zevanna’s first Christmas with us.

– Maxamillion and Damos’s first ever Christmas!! (They have some goodies too!) 

– Our first tree. 

– A first time for some festive cooking. 

And the list goes on. Although I will admit the tree isn’t finished just yet. One or two more bits and it will be perfect. It’s strange how much things have changed in a year. Last Christmas we had an old tree and it was just Ross and me. This year we have a full house!! I love that, besides it’s not what’s under the tree that matters but who is round it. 

Is your tree up?? What do you love about yours?

A Cold Merry Christmas. And travelling.

20151226_184641 Merry Christmas to all my fellow bloggers and fellow readers. (A day late I now. Sorry) I spent a large part of my Christmas travelling to see family – my partner’s family mostly – it was a strange Christmas. Being used to only having to get up and staying in all day. But all in all it was a very enjoyable time. Seeing how others celebrate the holiday. But I did realise something though.

It never mattered what was under the tree, what mattered was the people gathered round it.

And that seemed to ring true everywhere me and my partner went.

The hot water bottle pic comes into play nicely here. We got back from a 2 hour drive today and it was FREEZING!! Ross had got me the hot water bottle for christmas (mainly cause I complain loudly that its cold!!) it was left at home. And has warmed ross up nicely before work. Now I have stolen it back and how amazing can it get?? No longer cold inside and I can now feel my toes. So baby it can stay cold outside thank you very much.

Hope you all had a great Christmas. And have a brilliant new year.

November Favourite’s

It’s that time of the month again where we discover the favourite things people have been using day in, day out. Or a new something new on the scene that only got pointed out to us!! First off. In 4th place:

image

Its this gorgeous candle. Yes it is from asda and its only £3 but it smells heavenly. This is infact a re-purchase. The other went out the other night!! It is the sweet mulberry candle and it smells amazing. Thankfully it’s not overbearing in scent and rather soft. (May need to get more……) Candle daft I am indeed.
Next item on the agenda, in 3rd place:

image

This is not beauty related!! But it is a heads up for all tea lovers, who would love to try something new! My favourite tea so far has got to be the ‘Peppermint and Thistle’ by Twinnings. What a lovely combo. Its soft in taste and not overpowering like some teas. It doesn’t leave a nasty after taste and best drank still hot. Not luke warm (disgusting!!)I only put 2 sugar in, so that may be it. Also it does not go well with milk either. Its a win win.

And the runner up in 2nd place:

image

The MUA palette in ‘Undressed’ has been gently kicking my Naked palette’s out of reach. The colours are fantastic and work really well together. They blend beautifully (even for a rookie like me!) The favourite shades have got to be the last 4 on the bottom row. ‘Tawny’, ‘Henna’, ‘Fuel’ and finally ‘Cool Grey’ of course all are stunny metallics but I am enjoying the lovely nude shades as well. The palette is only £4!! Perfect bargin buy.

And finally my favourite item. Drum roll please for 1st place is……:

image

The throw has first place! I’ve had this cream one for a year now and its still no. 1 (Even though I have about 5 now!) Its a single person throw, with a hood and it gets used all the time. Nothing beats finishing a long day on shift and curling up in a cosy throw with a cuppa or hot choco. Perfect for the colder weather too.

So there you have it folks, this months favourite’s. Do you agree with any?? Or has something else stolen your top spot? Would love to know beauties.

Tiger: Tealight holders

To all my quirky loving readers and lovers of all things different. I have found a little something that will get those quirky juices flowing. Halloween is upon us and I finally found something not just spooky but so adorable. I just have to share my find with ya all!!

image

Ingore my reflection please!! Anyway, these are so cute. Perfect tealight holders for halloween. Made from dark orange glass, these are beyond awesome. Plus they are large too, well worth it. And stylish (mum aint getting her paws on them!!)

Halloween lovers your welcome. I found these at my local Tiger store for £2 each!! But if you guys want them you need to get them quick, cause they are selling out quickly. Found out that some stores are struggling to keep them in stock.

Until next time my fellow dudes and dudettes.
