Hey There!

My photo
London, United Kingdom
A site about my crafty, adventurous, london life. Things that I make, things that I like, things that I do. And my attempts to find my own London. All the while trying not to be too homesick for California and the Bay Area.

Craftiness Brought To You By A Special Request

I put my craftiness on hold for a while for the sake of the move but someone in the interwebs requested a custom item on my etsy shop! I was so glad to do it, it felt good to make something again. Thanks Kevin from Los Angeles.
I actually ended up making another flower because I had to go through my box of fabric to find the black felt. It's from fabric of this 70's cotton dress that didnt quite fit but I could not leave that lovely thing to the oakland goodwill. And since its a whole dress I can totally make like ten other little things out of it. I plan on making a bow tie, maybe another flower, originally I had plans for it to turn into a clutch purse of some type. Yay the possibilities.

Kevin from LA got the flower and sent me an appreciation photo. It makes me so happy.

Thanks Kevin!

Some Birthday Fun Before Shipping Off

My friend Tiffany had a surprise birthday party this weekend in Los Gatos. A lot of great friends piled into a limo going to wineries and getting very silly.


Love and Hangovers (that was totally worth it, I love you Tif)

PS: Tried the egg basket at Farley's East down the street. Gah so good. Like super duper egg in the hole.
I highly recommend it with prosciutto.

A New Addition To The Shop!

I was inspired by the bows in this designers spring line. Big assed bows fo sho.

Thanks to my ex-neighbor Natalie for helping me take this picture. She took it a few days before I moved out. She happened to be up on the roof looking for her runaway kitteh.

Thanks for your patience on the lack of crafty postings.
