Going on a creative journey......

It's officially the Summer holidays (although the sun seems to have forgotten me).....

I'm off to my spare room to explore my crafty treasures. I've been collecting all manner of creative items over the past few weeks and months and now that the holidays are here I have some time to go and make stuff - hooray!

With so much fabric and so many crafty plans, where is a girl to begin...?!

Please stop by again soon....I shall be leaving some clues and a little treasure map for you to follow.

Much love,

Dreaming of the sunshine so that I can go out and play again....

As promised.......

As promised, here is a link to my friend's facebook page:

Here you'll find examples of his work which will soon be on display in his brand new studio.

Here's a picture of the little ring I made this evening - well, a girl's got to keep herself busy whilst the husband is watching Tour de France :)

Triple ring with bow detail

Hello, Summer......are you there?!

As I sit surrounded by fog and rain I wonder when the sun might come out to play.

My summer holidays begin tomorrow. I'm totally shattered and very much looking forward to spending lots of time creating and making beautiful things and most importantly, getting some well deserved me time.

This summer brings with it lots of exciting events....a friend's wedding (for which I'm Chief Bridesmaid), a visit from close friends, a wedding anniversary and birthday celebrations. So much to look forward to. I really hope I manage to fit it all in.....

There is also an exciting project/development on the horizon. A friend of mine is creating their very own studio to display and sell their beautiful photographs. I'm sure you will all love his work (keep your eyes open for an exclusive peek inside the studio!). He has kindly offered some space to both little old me and my husband (the outdoor explorer). I'm very excited about this! I can't wait to go and take a look and to get painting and displaying our creations.

(I'll post some photos a bit later of my latest creations.....necklaces, bangles and all kinds of colourful and fan fanciful things.)

Lots of love and crafty hugs,

I made it to 500!.....and other crafty goings on.

I am pleased to announce that I've managed to reach (and exceed!) my 500 blog views target. It's so good to know that there are lovely people out there reading my ramblings :) 

A week in the life of KnittyNora....

I've been busy making and creating some new jewellery for my Etsy store. I love creating my own patterns. I really enjoy trying out other people's patterns but there's nothing quite like sitting down with your knitting needles and seeing where your mood takes you. 

I've been working on some funky necklace designs and some bangles. A couple of little treats for my niece's birthday will be making there way to her soon. I hope she likes them! :)

Having fun with henna.......

I've always admired traditional henna body art and the beautiful decorations people bestow upon their bodies. Whilst I do not claim to be any kind of expert with henna I thought I'd have a are some pics........

Love heart for my left wrist

Making up a design on my foot....well, I did have some henna left :)
These photos were taken just after the henna was applied....I'm looking forward to seeing what they look like once the top layer has fallen off :)

Wishing you all a wonderfully crafty weekend,
