So any way, I’ll be giving away a little goodie bag of Beelicious items including a fat Christmas pud decoration, the cookie coin/iPod purse, a carrot, strawb and raspberry key ring AND a pair of strawberry earrings! Oh and of course a winter snowflake (as if we didn't have enough!)

Christmas-y fun


Started on a new collection of soft and chunky cowls for this cold cold weather and of course some new Christmas treats, check them out in my Etsy shop.

Here’s a wee sneak peak!


These are my little hand crocheted Christmas puds tree decorations!


This is my new marble cowl, so soft and warm!

I’m really enjoying designing some new items and, of course, continuing to make the old favourites! I recently made two customs orders for a fantastically awesome girl in Australia, an ice cream scarf and a strawberry shortcake scarf and I really had such fun working with her to get them perfect!

New horizons….


So finally, after literally months of bugging everyone with questions about names and items etc, my new shop is open!

I am so happy I have it up and running and can get back to creating and designing more items! I’m hoping to expand into a clothes range in the near future, depending on my college schedule! So now I will leave you with a few tasters of Cheri!

Also stay tuned for photos for the big Etsy Ireland artist trading card swap on Saturday! I cant wait to see what everyone came up with!!

Names, games and hysterics

It’s been such a long time I know, I get distracted with crocheting and sewing and very often that's all I have to talk about…I’m a bit of a bore!

So I wanted to post a few photos of new items still in progress (waiting for a sewing machine so I can finish the lining and things!) and hopefully I’ll have a shop update before too long


Also, I’m opening a new Etsy shop where I’ll be selling some fabric rose items,handbags, headbands and eventually clothes, all handmade by me. This new shop will have a more elegant and vintage style appeal, perfect for weddings and special occasions and of course for any elegant ladies! So I’m now in the process of coming up with a name that is special and appropriate, hence the hysterics. I have so many words that epitomise the style but none of them sound quite right. I’ll let you know when I have one and when the shop will open.

And so tonight I plan to take it easy, not think about work, and play a lot of Cranium and Soul Calibur.

This line is much more decorative and vintage looking with pleats lace and beautiful flowers (flower pattern designed by the supremely talented snazziedrawers, )


My elegant new pleated tote bag was just uploaded today so check it out!

I’m also designing some head pieces, hairbands, fascinators etc so stay tuned…heres a little sneak peak…

Bits and Pieces...

I've had such a busy two weeks, first bad with the pooch having surgery(she thought eating a peach stone was a good idea...), the second was great. I've had far more fun than I expected and have finished some pieces I'm very happy with. I decided on tuesday that when I came home wednesday I was going to take three days off and have a dvd marathon but I keep getting ideas and the need to make things so my break has been postponed... I hope I'll get 'round to it I'm missing out on Grave of the Fireflies and Up!

Here's some of my work soon to be on etsy, also I'll be in the craft fair in the Unitarian Church on Princes st in Cork on the 24th of this month so come check it out! There'll be some great stalls and atmosphere!

A Little Bit of Terror Inducing Excitement

I am walking on clouds at the minute. After an awful day of cleaning up dog vomit, visits to the vet and the news that my wee pet may need an operation, I got a phone call…. Cant say details just yet but I'm so excited and terrified it'll fall through. But I think Ill let myself believe its true for the rest of the day at least….

Ill update soon and hopefully it'll be good news!

Also Etsy update tomorrow! Ill be listing some new items so check it out!

New beginnings….

God Im so bad at keeping up with this blog but its not all my fault I swear. Apparently the wifi thingy on my laptop is temper mental and will only work when my Dad tinkers with it!

My etsy shop is starting to take shape now, I just need to photograph all my bits (phew thats gonna take a while), come up with and design a logo and header and hopefully Ill be good to go.

Oh yawn I have to go to sleep, the combination of digging (up the garden for mum), crochet and a terrible day has made me long for my bed!

Snow, Sleepiness and all things in between

Finally I have returned, there's only so much a brain can store without overflowing! I've now returned to working my usual hours with the crochet and did have one or two moments when I just wanted to give up and curl up in bed with a Terry's chocolate orange and Geoffrey Rush..(unfortunately on screen and not in my bed)..but I persevered with the evil cupcake scarf and am now almost complete, just waiting on sprinkles! I suppose "evil" is a bit harsh but I seriously thought it would never happen. Ive tried out so many variations and couldn't find the perfect wool until a lone yellow colour caught my eye in the wool shop and beckoned me with its fantastic velvety softness....Now I just have a sprinkle problem ...what to use...?

Also nearing the end of my other experimental projects! I'm a divil when it comes to new things, I start at least five at the same time and manage to hit problems about the same time too. So now I'm trying to source chain for a handbag with is proving difficult(I'm a tad fussy) I found two, ones too big and one is too small...sigh. If anyone knows any website or shop where I could find a selection of non fused chain I would be ecstatic if you emailed me!

Goodness I've barely baked this new year which is unlike me but I blame the weather causing much laziness, but have an order for some butterfly cakes with butter cream filling so Ill post a photo soon too tantalise the taste buds and make you all jealous (me also...I cant eat them...damn wheat allergies!) though speaking of which I believe I might be ever closer to concocting a recipe for some wheat-free treats so stay tunes!

And on that positive note I must sigh off and get some beauty sleep!

Brain…why must you run away with yourself?

Finally I have returned to the crochet world after an extended Christmas break although diversions have not made it easy. Neither has the lack of brightly coloured wool. I have however begun an attempt at a shawl scarf thing in shell crochet which is quite pretty although had to start off with 202 stitches. This instils terror in my heart, I'm used to 25 stitches at most…

Ooh I have finally found super soft and super chunky wool so watch this space for cupcake brooches and the like!

Over Christmas I became rather distracted with dressmaking… well I say dressmaking I actually mean messing around with the sewing machine. So I attempted sewing a simple clutch bag and it worked out well so I tried another and another and now I am completely obsessed. So I found this amazing fabric on eBay so hopefully Ill be adding bags and purses to my collection.

I am also attempting the far more challenging ruffled, gathered, lace-y, tiered skirt pattern I found somewhere. Its hideously complicated but I'm well excited to see how it'll turn out. I have since discovered that I am a lace-y, ruffle kind of gal, oh and ribbons. My mind is actually whirling so much I cant even think but all Ill say is watch this space for photos and much more lace filled adventures!
