Happy New Year!

new year fireworks

Just a quick note to wish you all a very wonderful 2013. I’m busy planning the year ahead…first I’m continuing the renovating push we started in the month before Christmas. I have a little more to do in the living room before I’m going to do our bedroom; so there’ll be more to come in my renovating blog at last.
I’m also planning on getting Be In The Place available for the kindle and I’m hoping the inspiration muse will descend (otherwise known as ‘Flipping heck Helen, this book has been almost finished for 8 years or something, isn’t it about time you actually flipping finished it?’ self-talking to) and I’ll actually finish the last ever ever ever edit of my second book.
For Oshun – www.oshun.co.uk or www.OshunCreations.etsy.com my plans for the year are to finish my new main website – I’m currently re-listing every item and after a new design, will hopefully be ready by summer. In the mean time I’ll be busy making floaty maxi dresses and handy bottle bags in time for Glastonbury festival; and wedding dresses – upcycled and re-made fairy-style and also starting something completely new – a small selection of made-to-order, made-to-measure steampunk and historically inspired gowns.
My other Etsy shop, www.WickedFaerieGifts.etsy.com will carry on as usual, though my enjoyment of making book covers, along with my new Christmas present – a spellbinders grand calibur die cutting machine – means I’m going to make large wedding guestbooks with every page embellished, decorated and distressed with lots of interesting places for guests to sign and leave messages. Fun stuff.

I think that’s enough to be getting on with for now.

Finding the perfect camera system for youtubers, vloggers, bloggers & photographers.
June 17, 2019
Are you a blogger, photographer and vlogger? The big camera question! Do you, or do you not carry two cameras around with you at all times? Are you struggling with choosing which camera you need? I love photography and want to take with me a decent dslr to shoot in raw with a choice of lenses and allow me to take creative photos for my personal enjoyment as well as for my blog. However, I also vlog most of my life for my YouTube channel, and need to carry a camera for that as well. Can we combine them both? What should we do?

Zig Kuretake Clean Colour watercolour brush pens review & a handmade thank you card idea
May 30, 2018
After some research, I put the Zig Kuretake Clean Color real brush watercolour brush pens on my wishlist and was lucky enough to receive a pack from my cousin for my birthday. Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted brush pens like this! I think it must have been an episode of Blue Peter when they showed an artist who decorated narrow boats with beautifully crafted swirls that inspired me to recreate the style as best I could. When I grow up I want to paint narrow boats!….
