Settled In and Ready To Go!

Foggy and lush outside our house.

Hello my lovelies. Well I can finally say I’m settled into my new house!! Just in time for the winter season too……perfect. During the last few weeks things have been crazy, from trying to sort the house, family and finally passing my driving test! (I can now drive legally, woop) Its been one crazy little roller coaster. But the wait is over and we are finally in our home. I honestly feel like I’m dreaming!

We have most of the larger stuff sorted and now just need to get all the little nic’s & nac’s that make a house a home. I’m so excited however this crazy gal is just happy to be in her own home. No more living in boxes and all the crazy stress of not being able to do certain things.

Things have been quiet on the shop front which is absolutely fine as I wanted to mainly focus on getting my home sorted. Plus with everything that has been going on I’ve not been as focused there as I should be. However keep your eyes peeled for the new year. I’ve got some surprises coming soon for you all.

A little shop update: things are looking good over there. I’ve got loads of new goodies ready for the new year and to top it all off I have my own little studio/office space! It still needs alot work done to it but its defo on the way there and I can not wait to share it with you guys. Personally I can not wait to get in there and get it set up…..only problem is the style of how I want it. I’ve never had a crafting room before so this is new and a little overwhelming.

With this little update I hope to hear from you all soon.

What has you guys excited and nervous?

Until next my lovelies. Xx

The Stress of Living In Boxes.

Hello my lovelies. I’m gonna be honest with you now. I am very stressed out. You guys see, the partner and I have moved. 450 miles to be exact, but this time we are living in boxes. We are now living in someone else’s home and it’s very stressful. I’m glad they offered a place for us to stay (it’s my old place, the brother in law now stays there) but it’s not home anymore.

While staying here I’ve come to miss the little things we took for granted. Like cooking meals whenever we wanted. (The cooking part aint a topic I wanna go into!) Curling up on the couch to watch a cheesy movie with a bowl of crisps. Trying to stay calm and rage quitting while I die again in monster hunter. (I keep dying at one part and can not get past it!!) Being lazy after work and we both crash on the couch. The whole walking around in just a t-shirt after I get up. Having my craft stuff all over the sitting room table as I pondered what to make. And most importantly the space……how I miss my own space!!

Right now we are living in boxes with very little space. I don’t want to intrude on my brother in laws space with my crafts. I can’t even paint at the moment which is stressing me out! I’ve been hiding at my sister’s flat and even that is pushing the line. She is looking after my chinchillas for me so I go there often for them. God I miss seeing their cute, fluffy little faces every morning.

However there is a good side to this annoyance. We have been looking at some house’s and we may have finally found one. Monday will be the day we find out if they have accepted our offer and I honestly hope they have. I can’t wait to make more things and cook in my own kitchen. (More like watch Rossco cook cause he is the chef in our relantionship) We have both come to realise how much the little things matter.

Also before I leave you all with this ranty post, have a look at my shop’s etsy page http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheNysnoRose

I make custom orders and simple orders to and have made some space for these. If you don’t want to order but think someone else will then please share my page with friends, family and follow me on instagram.

Until next time my lovelies. Xxx

Tea, Chainmail bracelets and a catch up.

Hello my lovelies. Long time no blog post. I could give you all the excuses under the sun but I know thats not fair on you. I fell outta love with my blog. Simple as that. But I want to re-connect with this part of my creative life so here goes nothing. Welcome to a little catch up on whats happening.

Tea and my new project

This pretty much sums up what I’ve been up to. Appart from working in my main night job, the last few days have been dedicated to working on my shop. And the new project I’m working on. I’ve been making loads of bookmarks to order and other things like beaded bracelets.

We are currently in limbo at the moment. We’re meant to be moving back to scotland but our work is taking their sweet time in letting us know of a moving date. I’m getting to the point where I just want to tell them to shove it where the sun don’t shine. Its very annoying but this has inspired me to get more creative and get more done for the shop.

Some of my chainmail bracelets.
My latest chainmail bracelet

These are my newest projects. The chainmail bracelets are an instant favourite of mine. I’ve made them using the byzantine link formation which is a lovely, classic look. They have helped me stay calm and a great little destresser. I got these links from Panda Hall beads. I actually get a huge amount of stuff from them. Theyre amazing! 😍 Although they do take ages to make. I love making them. Don’t worry, these will defo be going up on tbe shop sometime this week.

I have got loads of plans for the shop but at the moment they can’t happen till we move. Fingers crossed it is sometime this month.

Until next time my lovelies. Xx
