Make every day count in August 🌜☀️✨

Hope July was a great month for you, can't believe, half the year is gone and in no time at all, Christmas will be here again.
This month was a good month for me, being able to do more sewing at my desk and of course, enjoyed our short trip away with Daniel and playing in the snow.   So much is planned for August though whether I manage to complete any of it we shall see, finger crossed!   

I've just created August/September wallpaper using my first custom Blythe as my module.  I hope you like it!
Just click on the photo and download. 

Have a great month ahead and make every day count in August! 😊

🗝 Save those offcuts and make Twinkees!!

Hi All, 

Thank you all for your likes and visiting my new Twinkees.  
Sweet Blueberry Pie has been adopted and is on her way to The Netherlands to meet her new Mummy!   Candy, Candy Cotton Princess and Lion Heart are still available from my Etsy shop Here:  

Remember to keep your offcuts and don't throw them out!
I'd almost forgotten how fun it was to make my Twinkees, they're so colourful and their little faces always makes me smile.

You'll be surprise how little fabric you need and you can even mix and match the mohair to create a multicolour bear.  Making them even more colourful and full of character!.

You can certainly make your own Twinkee keyring, here is the link to Twinkee Keyring's E-pattern:

...and guess what, I've just listed my Twinkee Rabbit Keyring E-Pattern in my shop here: 😃

If you are after a complete kit, just message me the colour and I can put together a custom kit for you too.


I hope you have lots of fun making your own Twinkees and that they will keep you in close company and make you smile at all times!! :D

🎂 A Cheery bundle of Twinkees..

Please meet my new hug of Twinkees!

From left to to right there is Lion Heart, he's a Lion trapped inside a kitty's body.  Then there's Sweet Blueberry Pie, very very shy and doesn't say much but the sweetest little thing.  Then there's Candy, just Candy she says, not Candy Floss, Candy Pop and definitely NOT Candy Crush, just "Candy" she says.  Lastly, there is Candy Cotton Princess
she would like me to tell you that as sweet as she looks, she's not a consumable item mmmm k?...looking is good, cuddles are ok but no EATING please!

Such a cheerful little bundle aren't they? :D

💋 A new Journey - Part 3 ~ 🎀 Belle 🎀

My new journey has brought me to this little girl...please meet "Belle"!

As my first attempt at customising, I'm pretty happy with how "Belle" turned out.  Nothing like what I had in mind before I began but I decided to just go with it and see what will come of her.  It's been so much FUN!!  The girls at Blythe Customization on fb has been wonderful; so generous with their advice and have many great tips to share. 

Now I'm really looking forward to making dresses and playing dress up with her!  This so reminds me of when I was little, drawing paper dolls then making paper clothes for them.  I feel like 8 years old again! giggle giggle giggle

☃️⛄️☃️ Taking time out to play...☃️⛄️☃️

It's been so cold this Winter that we decided it was a great time to go to the snow fields.  We just missed the snow last year and Daniel missed out on his snow fight but not this year! 😄

It was such a beautiful start to the long road trip, the sun was shining and the sky was blue!!

With rolling hills and beautiful scenery along the way, it was almost 7 hours before we saw any signs of actually started snowing and the excitement in the car was uncontainable!! :D 🌨❄️

We were finally there after many hours of "are we almost there yet Mummy?"..

We settled into our accommodation and woke up to this beautiful view.  It had been snowing all night.

♩♪♫♬ do you want to build a snow man..? ♩♪♫♬

After a bit of snow fighting, we were exhausted from all the laughter and so we got down to build a snow man..

Ta Da.. "TOTORO"..

One of our most memorable part of the trip was going on the Howling Husky Sled Dog Tours.  The best was that many of these gorgeous dogs are rescue dogs.  For anyone interested, they have a fb page or website.  

Thank you Mitch (our guide) and to the furry puppies, Loki, Sarabi, Pandora, Buddy, Diablo, Roxy, Smokey and Jasper for the awesome experience! 😄
