Life lately phew ! I'm so sorry for my slackness in posts I promise the New Year will hopefully bring more regular posts again and more crafting and fun.I'm slowly getting the hang of, and getting into the swing of being a mother of two. Plus trying to set up a new business adventure, blog and be a good wife and mother ! I'm doing all the same as before but my camera seems to be upstairs when I'm downstairs and vice versa. I feel a bit like I'm juggling kids, I put one down and the other needs me and vice versa ! x But life is good and fun and we are gearing up for Christmas and Rex is bouncing off the walls with excitement.Plus we are doing work on the house in Jan so we also have to pack up and move out for a while.
Like I said things are all go around here !x

Bit of a monster theme going on at the mo I think it must be as we are getting closer and closer to Halloween.
These are a great way of making trousers and jeans wearable for a bit longer. When the holes start appearing use them as a feature.
Really easy to do all you need is some old scraps of fabric. Here I used some old jersey cut up from an old baby grow, some felt and some embroidery thread.
Sew the jersey behind the hole, stitch it on, then stitch the details on top like eyes etc.
Done, your very own monsters playing peek a boo !

Post pregnancy style hmmmmm x Nothing in my wardrobe fits and my body is just an odd shape.
I only want to wear black but have hardly any and it shows up baby vomit. Forgot about that old chestnut!
Its like dressing another woman's body, all my stuff I used to wear looks just weird or just accentuates all the plumper bits (as you can see from these pics!). Plus having a small baby constantly hanging off me plus a toddler means certain items of clothing are off limits and even hazardous, note to oneself a fringed kimono equals cats cradle baby / live puppet looking show, plus one arm shut in car door and other round the gear stick. I was stuck, not joking ! Don't get me wrong I live by the rule now and after I had Rex, a year on a year off. Alas it still depresses me that after what felt like years of pregnancy where I could not wear any of my fave things, I still wont be able to wear for some time to come. I know its not a biggie in the grand scheme of life, but I love fashion and clothes and dressing up (occupational hazard) and its just not so fun at the moment, boooooooo !
Its a fun challenge though picking through what does fit as I try to piece back together a bit of me with my new daily changing body.
This is an outfit for being me again for a couple of hours for the first time since having Dottie as I was off to an event.
Trying out a few new season trends of tartan, leopard and fierce looking bling.
Shoes: Really Really Old Dolcis !

Rex and I had great fun making these fun little Conker Monsters while Dottie watched us.
We had, or should I say Rex had collected a ridiculous amount of conkers over the last couple of weeks. Ive been racking my brains as to what on earth I was going to do with them all. I eventually had a brain wave about these little fellas and was so chuffed with how they turned out. Really easy to make and can be used in time for Halloween as decorations.
We made a little video tutorial which I will post shortly.
Have fun ! x
