Amigurumi Petite Pigs

New to my etsy shop - Petite Pigs. :)

Petite Pigs love nothing more than a gossip and giggle with each other. They also love to snack on chocolate drops and have a wallow in melted chocolate. :)

Amigurumi Yellow and Orange Summer Bear

A new liitle critter has found it's way into my etsy shop here. :)

This little bear is at its happiest when the sun is shining. It loves going for long walks and taking trips to the seaside. :) It also loves ice-cream especially vanilla.

More baking - cheese scones

See what happens when a bank holiday weekend arrives. Having more time gives me urges to bake. :) I love baking although after a long day at work I often don't feel like it when I get home.

This time it was cheese scones. I love cheese scones especially when they're warm and fresh out of the oven.

Custom bunny

I finished another custom oder recently so thought I'd post it on here. A little grey lop eared bunny. :)

I think it came out quite cute, I'm pleased with it.

Etsy Treasury Team

I keep meaning to make a post about the Etsy Treasury Team. :) I've always wanted to get involved with a team on etsy as some of them are so good. One of the main problems I have is time though. What with working full time, having a strong interest in video games and also trying to make time to create my own handmade items it mainly comes down to how much time can I give to the team and what have I got to offer them.

I first found out about the "etteam" (as it's abbreviated to) from a fellow UK etsy user NiftyKnits. It sounded ideal for me. A team that creates treasuries and in the process trying to promote the team's work and also commenting and clicking on each other's selections. :) I love creating treasuries on etsy and browsing at others so I applied to the team and later got accepted. :)

I've been a member for a couple of months or so now and happy to be there. In the team are some very helpful and lovely people who all make such great items - you're spoilt for choice when creating a treasury.

I just wanted to make this post to thank my nice team members, I love being part of the etteam. :D

Choccie cake

I was flicking through my recipe books last night and stumbled upon a cake recipe I thought I'd give a go today once I'd been shopping and got the rest of the ingredients I was missing.

It's a chocolate chip cake. I love baking especially when the smell starts to linger around the house. Mmmmmm... the house smelt of chocolate when it was in the oven.

Cake came out ok though I think. Got a thumbs up from the boyfriend so that's a plus. :)

I'm still here!

Wowsers! I didn't realise it had been so long since I updated my craft blog. Doh! I'm still here though and have been keeping my etsy shop ticking over nicely and trying to keep items in stock. :)

Haven't made anything new as such though but hoping to get around to that in the near future. I think with the nicer weather coming in I'm not sitting around crocheting so much at the moment, plus trying to keep up with my video games as well.... having fun trying to make time for everything. :)
