Starting early....

Seeing as I've got a bit of spare cash at the moment I thought I'd start my Christmas shopping a bit early. Well really early, for me I usually do my shopping the week sometimes even a few days before! But this year is going to be different and I'm going to try my very best to buy most of them on etsy. I've bought a few already - here are the first of my lovely Xmas purchases. (luckily none of my nearest and dearest read my blog so I won't be ruining any surprises.)

Two gorgeous Macbook envelopes from fernfiddlehead. The top one is for me! (I just couldn't resist!) I'd been looking for something stylish to keep my Mac in and I collect kokeshi dolls so it was just perfect. The skully one I bought is for my boyfriend (although I'm tempted to keep it for myself!) I hope he likes it but if he doesn't.... I'm so happy with them I want to give it to him now! The seller was lovely and was delivered super quick all the way from Brooklyn, New York.

How now brown owl.

An owl cushion made of brown gingham with a  dark brown felt envelope back. This cute little creature was from some scrap fabric leftover from another project. I wanted to do something with him so I paired him up with some complimentary brown gingham and felt, I think it worked really well. I originally intended to sell it but I don't think I can part with him now, so I found him a home on a chair in my living room.

10 Sales!!!

I've finally made to 10 sales......and my second British customer, apparently she found me in a treasury that I didn't even know I was in! I wish there was a function on etsy that let you know when you're featured in a treasury, as I rarely ever look at them. The only reason I knew I was featured last time was because Alix found it and convo'd me! 

It's been a while since I've been on here as I've been quite busy over the past few weeks (although not busy crafting!) I intended to do a lot of sewing this last week but unfortunately really hurt two of the toes on my right foot (I tripped over the hoover!) it was so painful I had to take two days of work. So mostly I did a lot of sitting with my feet up feeling stupid and useless. 

I can finally put pictures on here as I have a new camera (which my lovely boyfriend bought me for my birthday!) it's really great I just have to learn how to use it properly and take better pictures! I thought I'd add a photo of one of the bags I mentioned in an earlier post.
