How adorable are these wee fellas?
Hey folks! Time for my Christmas give-away! I know it’s a wee bit early but I wont have time coming up to Christmas with fairs and orders and what not! 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!)
To be in with a chance of winning these awesome goodies all you have to do is follow my blog and comment below with what Christmas means to you or follow the instructions on my facebook page ! Here's a wee pic of the super goodie bag!
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!
I have some new super cute projects on the go at the moment so hopefully I’ll get some photos posted soon.
So finally, after literally months of bugging everyone with questions about names and items etc, my new shop is open! http://www.etsy.com/shop/cherieboutique
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!!
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.
I've had so much fun creating some new pieces for the shop. I’ve taken a different direction and I’m really enjoying the finished items. This line is much more decorative and vintage looking with pleats lace and beautiful flowers (flower pattern designed by the supremely talented snazziedrawers, www.snazziedrawers.etsy.com )
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…
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!
So the time has finally come! my etsy shop is up and running. Keep in mind I havent yet listed everything so more items will appear over the coming days! I’d love you to check it out and get any feedback for logos or ideas…I eventually plan on doing custom orders so get thinking!
Anyway check it out
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!
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!
