Hello Again and Cute Keychains.

Hello my lovelies. It’s been a while hasn’t it. Well to put it the short way I fell outta love with blogging but I have some new ideas and a makeover planned!! Can not wait to share all of this with you, it’s gonna be very exciting!

But lets forget all the sappy stuff and dive into the cute crafty stuff. I’ve been rather busy with my shop and wanted to share some of the items thats there with you guys. A little behind the scenes tour if you will. You can visit my shop here: http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SeasonalRoseShop to have a sneak peak at what I have. If you want to see more of something let me know, everything is handmade.

My leaf wisp and psychic wisp.

I made some keyrings! Plus other things with these little cuties and if you follow me on instagram you will see them. These little cuties are made from scupley clay which I got from Amazon. I had never used scupley before so it was a very good learning experience. The will-o-wisps or wisps for short are an original idea of mine and I do hope to make more of them come too life.

I had to mould these little ones into shape, which gave my hands a crazy workout. They where so damn sore afterwards. I then baked them and left them over night to cool. (Silly me didnt think they would take to long to paint!) These took a huge chunk of my day to paint, glaze and add the blush details. I used an eyeshadow pallete for the pink cheeks and to give my acorn wisps a shiny top.

Aren’t they so damn cute. I hope to make more of these and use them in other things eventually. I’m thinking bookmarks, mugs, fabrics, little sculptures, basically everthing really.

Well it was great talking to you all, cant wait to speak again.

But until then my lovelies bye.

A Trio of Toggle Bracelet’s

Hello my lovelies. How are you all on a not so pleasant day? (Weather is horrid here!) Had a rare full day off so got my crafty mind going and made these little cuties. 

Toggel bracelets that I made
The dark blue and brown was the first one I made and after seeing the end result, with its cute little light house charm. I decided to make more.

The first bracelet wasn’t without issues. First I had made it too long. Too many beads. And second I hadn’t closed the crimp bead properly so the wire was coming loose. After sorting these 2 problems I had a bracelet that fit well. (Still a little big but that’s okay for me!)

Blue spiked toggel bracelet with airplane charm.

My second creation. This one was a test of my patience. I kept having to redo it again and again cause I had too few beads. My first use of a big bead and while it is a little too big, its defo a keeper. Simply for the practice and colour combo. 

Little airplane charm detail.
Third toggel bracelet! Success!!

My third attempt at the toggel bracelet. And I can happliy say success!! It fits snuggly on my wrist and looks great. By far my favourite piece. Love the little watermelon charm and the use of gold bracelet wire. Was going to use a dragonfly charm but think I’ll use it with a different colour combo.

I’m off to enjoy more bracelet making. 

Until next time lovelies.

A knee-high sock haul.

Hello my lovelies. How are you all on this fine day?? I’ll admit my day has been rather slow. Recently I was looking for some knee high socks. Why? Simple I’m not a fan of tights. Do not like them at all. So I wanted to invest in some decent knee highs that could keep me warm and still look good. And I went and got some from amazon. By the way what’s your opinion on knee high socks?? Do you love them?? Or are you more a tight’s person??

Bear socks. I love these ones. Warm and can be worn with a dress or shorts!! These are so cute with soft fluffy ears with cute little faces. The quality is really good too.

Any cat lovers out there?? These are just as cute. Again can be worn with a dress or shorts. The soft fluffy ears are great and love the black cat vibe. The little pink nose is nawwwww!!

Sporty socks. These are great for wearing under jeans or jeggings. I have these with blue stripes and black with white stripes. The red and blue are my favourite out of these. Plus they’re breatheable and not made to be clamy.

My other black knee high socks. These are just as good but a thinner material. Fab for under jeans and leggings. Plus great to wear on a warmer day, maybe not for winter though. I have these in a lovely burgandy.

And the final set. Not knee high but close enough. I got 3 of these. One a light tan, this baby blue and a soft pastel pink. I do have a problem with these though. My tan ones have began to fray at the top and I’ve only worn them once. Yet these blue ones get worn alot and they haven’t started fraying yet. Same with the pink.

Until next time my lovelies.
