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

Recycling and Bookmarks.

Good morning my lovelies. What a crazy last few days its been! Hope your all doing really well in this colder weather.

People know I love things like beads. All kinds! Little glass pearls to beautiful jeweled ones. And buttons. Vintage buttons and fabric too! While I love all these little things they can get messy, and go everywhere and I can forget which colours I actually have. So I’m going to give new life to some glass jars that where lying around my house.

My glass containers for my beads.

These little glass jars where once upon a time a lovely choco dessert. Recycling something like this is easy. Got an old sauce jar being used to hold all my paintbrushes. Now they’ve been cleaned and waiting for their new home in my craft room where they will be used to help with all my beads.

Now talking about beads, I’ve been creating some new pieces for my shop. Some of these have even been custom made with the help of my beads.

My custom made bookmarks

Ain’t it pretty. I’m hoping to develop on this design too create even more of these lovely bookmarks for the new year. And maybe get a few cheeky custom orders too! ☺

My bead collection have actually helped inspire my recent makes and I hope to make more in the near future. I love all the different shades of green here.

Do you like reading? What is your favourite book and bookmark?

Until next time 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

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.

Scupley clay wisps getting painted.

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.

The water droplet wisp and acorn wisp.

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.
