DIY Projects Pt 2

Hi All!

Just thought I'd do another quick post with some new DIY Canvases I've been doing.

I also want to post a picture of an awesome canvas I'm waiting to be delivered!

So first things first here are two of the three canvases I've done today using:

- Three small blank canvas
- Acrylic paint in black & white
- Safari Animals
- Superglue

So yeah, I think it's pretty self explanatory what I did there (just waiting for number three animals to dry now, white animals on a black background)

All of these DIY projects I'm doing will hopefully contribute on decorating the house that we're hoping to find and move into after Christmas, we may have very little furniture but at least the walls will look nice!

And for our newest addition we are awaiting delivery of this map of the world from

I'm so excited for this to get here - even if we currently don't have anywhere to hang a 30" x 40" canvas . . . Oh well it can wait!

Peace y'all

DIY Projects . . .

So, my last post was a very tall tale wasn't it?

In my absence not a lot has really happened, apart from setting a date for our wedding and steam rolling along with plans for that!

Anyway, as the title of this post suggests I figured I'd come back to blogging for DIY ideas; I've been reading a lot of blogs lately for ideas for handmade goodies for the wedding decorations.

So far I've tried a couple of things out - flowers, candle holders and pinwheels. That, however, is a post for another day.

Today I have done some non-wedding DIY projects, take a look and tell me what you think!

We got these Lucky Beers for a pound a couple of weeks ago and couldn't face throwing them away, so candle holders they will be from now!

I bought a few canvasses today, used some spare material and stuck it on - put some pins in and there you have it - somewhere to hang my jewellery!

And finally this - a canvas and 80 Fairy lights to make a nice mood light for the bedroom.

Let me know what you think! I'll definitely be doing more DIY stuff in the future so feel free to share any of your own projects!

Peace y'all

So. . . It's been a while!

I feel like I need to apologise for my complete lack of Tweeting, blogging even Facebook-ing!

I do have an excuse of sorts. . . Any of you who may actually know me may be aware that I am prone to have quite an addictive personality, so this is what I've been doing for the past few weeks (and working of course)

I'm almost at an end of A Dance With Dragons and feel quite upset that there are still two left in the series that haven't been written yet!

In my time away I also read the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. Both that and The Game of Thrones I seriously recommend to anyone who has the patience to read them all!

Anywhooo. . . Normal service will be resumed soon, hopefully the big launch will be good to go when I get back from my holiday in three weeks!

For now, hope everyone is well. . . It seems I have a lot of catching up to do with my social networking!!

Peace y'all

Owls & Eagles . . .

I thought I would deviate from the latest line of blog posts and do one on some of the things I've recently been up to!

I'll be quiet over the weekend as I'm off to a festival with Alex! Hevy Festival in Kent, on a wildlife park!! Very, very excited for a four day weekend and some loud music!

On another note, here is a new necklace I bought last week, total bargain at £3 from a shop called Rowfers in Afflecks

Also, thought I would show another picture of a necklace a friend bought me for my birthday a while back, I love it!

Finally, hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and fingers crossed the weather is glorious!

Peace y'all

Official Logo

Well then, for those of you that have shown and interest in Wolf Among Sheep I can now reveal our beautiful logo(s) that have been designed by the amazing Helen . . .

Aren't they cute?

I'd just like to say a quick thanks to those few who have offered advice, tips and encouragement, it means a lot! Hopefully you won't have to wait much longer for me to start selling!

Stay tuned. . .

Peace y'all

Sneaky previews. . . .

And there you have it! The first four materials purchased for Wolf Among Sheep skirts!

As you can see there is a black and white gingham material, a red and white stripey jersey material, red and white polka dot chiffon-esque material and a blue spotty type with red telephones and clocks on it!

So far three have been made up. . . So if any of you would prefer a skirt in a particular material then send me a message and tell me what size to make it!!

Everything is running pretty smoothly at the minute, a logo is in the process of being drawn, the pieces are coming together nicely. . . Hope you're all as excited as I am!!

Hope you approve of the material choices and don't forget to spread the word! Follow us here WolfAmongSheep1

Peace y'all

Poorly drawn ideas. . .

I thought that instead of just talking about what is going to be made for Wolf Among Sheep that I would (crudely) put together a couple of sketches of the design I'm going for initially.

So here they are. . . And as was implied above, they aren't the best!

These are both pleated skirts with a thick elastic waist band. . . Obviously these pictures don't give away a whole lot, but you get the idea?

I'm off shopping this weekend to buy a range of fabrics, so expect: spotty, stripey, plain, longer lengths, shorter lengths, bright & bold, plain & simple and well, any other patterns that take my fancy. I have two so far in spots and stripes!

Any comments/ideas/Do's and Don'ts on these are welcome!

Peace y'all
