So let’s kick off the new year with a WonderfulWolfCrafts Etsy sale! If you enter the code ‘HAPPY17’, you’ll receive 17% off your purchase – pretty neat huh.
And if you’re unsure as to what wares I’m peddling – it’s these very pretty constellation necklaces, head on over to the shop to learn more about them!
So my nails are non-existent at the moment. I broke two of them whilst I was fishing at the weekend, like right down to the quick – ouch! They’re so short I’m embarrassed to photograph them, and also a little scared to go near them with nail varnish remover they’re that raw feeling.
Anyway! I do ‘dabble’ in other crafts so thought I’d share a bracelet I made for myself. I had these cute ladybug and mushroom beads, and thought they’d look brilliant together will loads of flowers. It took me forever to complete, I honestly don’t know how many hours over how many days, but it felt like a long time. However! I’m super happy with how it looks; I think it’s cute, fun and summery.
(I used my phone to photograph it as my camera was out of charge, hence why they’re a little grainy!)
I’m an avid fish-keeper and love ‘touring’ new fish shops, I usually drag along my poor mum along for company. So while I made my bracelet I created her this little pair of earrings for her to wear when we visit them – just for a bit of fun really! (I actually don’t have my own ears pierced so I have to miss out!)
So these were the nails I was wearing to the actual game on Saturday. (Unfortunately we lost, but it was still a fantastic day) I used crushed up clingfilm/saran wrap to create this look, I’ve not used that technique in a while as I was a little obsessed with sponging. I chose colours out of my kimono obviously, as I love to be coordinated. I also couldn’t find the correct necklace to go with my outfit, so I made one of course! I used clear shrink plastic to roughly trace one of the flowers from the kimono, baked it, then painted it on the reverse with… nail varnish! I was worried at first as it stank of polish but fortunately after a few days it lost it’s stink. Phew! I hope you don’t mind me saying so but I think it looks really cool, I was happy with how it turned out. Just a shame about the game…
