Day 14: Craft/blog every day in June!


 Hi guys, hope you're all well & having a lovely weekend so far!


I'm here with my craft/blog every day in June post & today's prompts are:

Day 14: What is your craft/s, what is it about it that floats your boat
OR
Craft something that has a flower theme

PAPERCRAFTS would be the craft I do most.....cards, tags, atc's, scrap pages....I 
love that I can have a seemingly random mix of stash & somehow turn it into
(hopefully) something that I like!
CROSS STITCH is something I usually do in Winter, snuggled in front of the fire...
....I love the peace & relaxation it gives me....watching all those tiny little x's
come together always amazes me!
JEWELLERY making is something I'm new to, I like to make the wrap-type
bracelets....real quick & easy......and unique!
SEWING is something I always wish I'd learned to do properly....I can whip up a
cushion cover & a bit of bunting lol but this Summer hols Miss Rebecca & me
have plans.....we're gonna give dressmaking a go......eeek!!

I managed the double today, well a very loose double but maybe it might just
count as a flower themed make.......
......a double wrap bracelet, I used pink waxed cord, pearls, I added some
little silver daisy charms & a gorgeous button to fasten......so pretty IRL but
so hard to take a good photo of!

  1. Love the bracelet - jewellery making is something I did before but couldn't really get into it - I may need to now I think! Love all the various other crafts you do too! xx
