Cupcakes and mug rugs….a swap story

Last week Fiona from PatchworkDelights put forward the idea of doing a swap. One of my cupcakes for a mug rug! I jumped at the chance (I had my eye on the beauties for a while)!!  I, off course, wanted a pink one and Fi was so amazingly wonderful and made one up for me.

It arrived a little while ago and I am SO SO super delighted with it, it;s not only beautiful but so well made.



Fi also received her cupcake and was delighted with it!


I’m so glad I got a chance to do this swap with such a talented artist! Check out Fiona’s Etsy shop!

This year I attended a textile course at the Crawford College. It was a great course where I got to develop my textile skills including different ways of felt making, printmaking, silk paper as well as paper making. We had an exhibition at the end of the 24 weeks where I, of course completely forgot to take photos, so today whilst taking the pieces down I took a few photos of my sculptures (on my phone so they’re not the best, I’ll have a few more soon). These pieces were made of soy bean fibre and flax with metal leaf.





Easter Photoshoot


Hello! I have returned after a long break and am laden down with lots of fun news. First of all you can now find some BeeLiciousCrafts items in Roisin’s Beauty Salon in Inistogue in Kilkenny!

Secondly, the amazing wedding photographer and Etsy member (check out her beautiful brooch bouquets here) Lisa O’ Dwyer did a stunning Easter themed photo shoot featuring many Etsy Ireland members. Here are a few photos with my crochet cupcakes and lemon clutch.
