I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Being on telly.

Ok, so I’m not likely to be on telly, but I am one of probably thousands of crafters who have applied to be on Kirstie Allsopp’s next programme. These are the pictures I sent in with the form as examples of my pyrography.

I did these for my Dad – one for Fathers’ Day and one for his birthday. Mackie and Ben are my parent’s pet dogs and I drew them from looking at photos onto these wooden magazine files.

Fairy box

 

The fairy box was one of the first things I ever pyrographed. I was pretty pleased with the results though, so I hope Kirstie’s researchers think so too! I now use it to fill with signs and keyrings and things to carry to craft fairs. It doubles up as a good display item and I like it too much to sell.

Handmade business,

I’m sorry!
December 11, 2016
I’ve been very busy on this blog recently; particularly with posting every day for Blogtober, so it feels strange not to have been here much for the last week or so. I expected Vlogmas to be time-consuming, but not quite this much! I am getting quicker at editing the videos, but it’s still taking me all morning every day, and sometimes part of the afternoon too, so I am not getting time to blog as well. I’ve got several blogs almost finished, but not quite, and I’m just not managing to get them done. So, I’m really sorry about this, but please take a look at my You Tube channel to see what I’ve been up to, and for the next couple of weeks, find me there instead. I’ll definitely be continuing Monday’s Weekly Wardrobe post, but I’m sorry if there’s not much in-between for the time being. Thank you for sticking with me. 🙂
The story of a wood carver – Martin at Lady Oak Wood
August 4, 2016
When I was a kid my Dad let me play around with a chisel and a piece of soft wood and I loved carving patterns into it. When I grow up I’d love to have another go! Martin from Lady Oak Wood tells me in this interview how he is inspired by nature and I totally agree – I love working with natural materials, including wood, and one day, when I’m not so busy with other things, I seriously would love to give wood turning and wood carving a proper try. It was interesting hearing more about it….
