Recent crafty endeavours

I’ve definitely dropped off the face of the blogging-planet. I can’t even remember what my last post is about. Probably something about how I don’t blog as often as I’d like. I love blogging as an outlet for my thoughts – possibly because I always wanted to have a paper diary but never got around to it.

I started pottery classes a few weeks ago. I only enrolled to do one term but I’m loving it so far. I’ve had some hits and some misses, but it’s just fun to meet new people (as much as I say I hate it – hi introversion!) and get messy! I spent last class playing with underglaze.

Last week, I welcomed a new niece and she’s the most adorable squishy thing ever. Plus she is so tiny. Plus she has that mystical new baby smell that I thought was something new mums made up because they loved their babies so much. In conclusion she smells amazing.

I’m dreading how cold winter will get this year. This morning I found myself shivering in my thick winter coat and wooly hat. It’s only autumn. :| I was even contemplating whipping out the gloves and the boots, but I held off. It’s becoming harder and harder to get out of bed in the mornings. I really don’t like winter.

I’m obsessed with my Cricut. H travelled to the USA for work a few months ago and  brought me back a Cricut machine. They retail for 500+ in Australia so I was never going to get one here. Basically it’s a printer that cuts instead of inks. If you’re still confused there are plenty of videos on YouTube ;) I made some gem stone table placeholders for a recent dinner party.
