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

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

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.

Shop Is Open! And Youtube!

Hello my lovelies. How are you all today? Hope your all ready for the weekend! It’s certainly been a very busy week for me. So many things have been happening and I finally feel like things are moving in the right direction. Plans and dreams that I’ve had for years have finally had their seeds planted!

Some of you may know that I’ve been wanting to open a shop for a long time now and I finally done it!! I’m so happy and excited to announce that I now have an Etsy shop!

And here is a link to that shop. My Etsy Shop

My button coin purse. Hand made and hand stitched. 

I love this button coin purse. It was easy to make and it was very pleasing to finally use some of the fabric that I’ve been accumulating over the last year or two for something. I much prefer the rounded corners than the shape ones. (Made that mistake with my first one!) I’m hoping to get better with sewing zips on and more complex embroidery. 🙂

The shop contains some other hand made pieces and one painting. I hope to get more stock in in the coming weeks and hope you all enjoy. Having this shop is giving me a great little push that I need to be more creative and gain more skill in hand embroidery. Keep an eye out for more work to come. I have some exciting things in store and can not wait to share them all with you.

Now onto the second part. My Youtube Channel

Since blogging I’ve always had a growing interest in youtube or vlogging. And after much debate with myself I realized that I didn’t have anything too loose and went for it. I’ve only got a few videos up and still have much to learn/get. Such as editing equipment, an sd card that will work with my camera (it’s an older model but works perfectly) and some decent lighting. But that will all come in time but for now I’m really enjoying it.

I hope you enjoy and until next time my lovelies.

A cute Pastel Elixir Haul

Good morning everyone! Today is a very exciting day……I just got my order from Pastel Elixir and I am beyond pleased and excited. Let’s be real, I’m actually sitting trying hard not to squeal. And this is why:

Pastel Elixir Goodies

I did also get a cute mug but got that the other day. Ellis did not it to damage any of the prints. The mind behind Pastel Elixir is a lovely young woman called Ellis Woolley. And she is lovely and answers any questions to the best of her ability. She also has youtube’s. Even better to put a face to the name!! 

The create print and Pastel Elixir buisiness card.

How cute are these. Before I continue Ellis does have a sale going on, check it out for some cute stuff. I love the ‘Create’ print. As an creative person this is something I just can’t resist, plus the doodles are adorable. The simple design for her buisness card is flawless. Simple yet effective. 

My Squirrel Mug by Pastel Elixir.
You may have already seen this on my insta if you follow me there. This mug is just perfect for the new season and I love the forage detail too. While it is smaller than my other mugs, its great for getting used to soya milk. 

Unicorn print, cupcake post card and the monster card

These are great. The moster card was a must. Not sure who will get it but may just keep it cause it’s adorable. The unicorn ‘Believe In Yourself’ print is a great buy. It’s a great little reminder to stay confident and that I got this. 😍

Pastel Elixir buisiness info
This is the info for Pastel Elixir if your interested. Ellis is a lovely person and we both share a keen love for supporting small buisinesses. From her beautiful stickers, badges to the mugs and prints. This is one shop I defo plan on visiting again. 

Until next time.

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.
