After a Long Break!

Well hello again to all in Blogland.  I didn't realise how long I'd been away!!!  This is the first time I've looked at my blog in ages - is that really bad???  Anyway - it's lovely to see that I have some new followers, so welcome to you and hi to everyone else that is still here!!

The main reason for me taking a break is that I've been working full time and finding it very hard to get the time to craft or do anything much esle.  I'm really missing crafting so kinda sad about that.  However, I have been making my sock monkeys and kitties and a few other bits and pieces when I get the chance.

I've been reading abit more lately as well - not sure if I've mentioned it before but I'm a huge True Blood fan so have read the whole set of those books as well as re-watching the whole 4 seasons again!!  I also like The Walking Dead so have been watching that as well.  I like most Vampire, Werewolf and Zombie themed tv shows but have never got into The Twilight movies - just find them tame and no story, they just don't appeal to me!!  Anyway, a work colleague who is also abit of a vamp/wolf geek has now introduced me to anthor author Patricia Briggs so I am now working my way through the Mercy Thompson stories!! 

I've made some bag charms to tie into the Vamp theme as well

Talking of bag charms - it's Mother's Day soon so I've also made a few with 'Mum' on as well.

I've made lots of sock animals leading up to Christmas and most can be seen in the gallery on my Facebook Page - you will also find the bag charms there as well if anyone is interested :)

Here's a sock monkey that I've just finished

I'm thinking of taking a trip to New York but as would be expected I need to combine sightseeing with craft shopping!  If any of my followers are New Yorkers, can you tell me how far out in the suburbs would I need to go for the closest Joann's and Michaels stores - safe suburbs preferably lol!!!!  I'd have to go by bus or subway also....... Thanks!

I've started up a new Facebook page called The Bee's Knees Crafting Bits, selling some lovely charms, findings and any other crafting bits I come across.  If you are into Steampunk there are clocks and keys for sale there which may be of interest to you.  You can find the page here, there is a minimum spend of £1.70 plus postage due to paypal fees :'(  I am selling the charms individually so that you can choose your own mix.  Hope to see you there!

Anyway - that's all from me for now, I will endeavour to post regularily now!!!

Toodle Pip!
