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

Home Alone and Figuring It Out.

Hello folks. How are you all this lovely day? I’ve finally got my feet up after a very busy morning. Been in the new flat for 3 days now and I’ve never been so exhausted. Due to many factors such as: heat, lifting heavy boxes, noticing whats been left behind and losing my bank card. Oh can’t forget lack of sleep……….it’s gonna be another early night for me. 

Found this little creek while out walking. So pretty.

But so far this little adventure is going really well. Just had an interview which I smashed!!! Yay me!!! I was even 45 minutes early even though I thought I was gonna be late. Strange English trains. 

The floofballs have settled in nicely. Damos has become a live wire but is healthy and happy. Managed to register them at a local vets that specialize in chinchillas, so plan on taking them there soon for a check up. They didn’t hear me………good! Don’t want 200 poops being thrown at me!!

Damos snuggled back in again. Silly wee floofer. 😍

I did have a major problem the other day. I spent 1 hour + trying to figure out how my washer/dryer goes on a dryer cycle!!!! (Never owned one, always had em as an individual piece) I had to figure this huge detail out……..by myself!!! Which isn’t easy when you don’t have the interwebs to rely on. 

The partner had went back up north to get the rest of our things. It was nerving at first being on my own in such a new area but I soon relaxed. I got to doodle and even work in my sketchbook. 

Well gotta go. The kettle has boiled so cuppa time. Thanks for reading you gorgeous people. 

Until next time. Bye.
