Baby Necktie!

Hugs And Kisses Snake Crochet Necktie / Lariat / Scarf For Baby Or Toddler

It has been a busy week for me so I haven't been able to get many things done, like the blog for example but I thought I'd update quickly with an item from my Etsy store. One of my recent baby items! I have been crocheting hard like a busy bee, coming up with a new accessory design for lil' dudes, and ended up making something more multifunctional than the necktie I had envisioned! I wanted to make something cute, yet practical for smart occassions as neckties are something I find EXTREMELY difficult to find over hear in the UK without them being elasticated. The great thing about this design is that it is stretchy, yet giving credit to the full tie! Upon playing around with it however I figured that it could be used in a variety of ways being as the shape is more of an abstract tie shape, and infact as my other half pointed out, looks quite like a snake! I think it's wonderful and lil Yukio has enjoyed the design too which is the ultimate test lol!!! So come on by to the store and check out the other color varieties I have recently uploaded. I hope to bring in more soon and I'm working on other ideas so I'll keep you updated!

I havent really had much luck with this but it seems there's a knack for listing stuff on etsy and getting the correct time of day to do it so your stuff is acknowledged! It's a pain but it really is a disadvantage being here in the UK unless I list stuff in the wee hours of the morning! Not practical with t'little one on board! Well... Anyway, I have a weekend of me time to crack on with much stuff so I'll have a good opportunity to work it all out, and maybe read a book or two! :D

I'm back from the shadowy depths of last year! And with an Etsy Shop!

As I am notoriously rubbish at ever being a good internet devotee, my blog has been collecting cobwebs from last year, and now I feel pressured to not only fulfill forgotten promises on here, but I must revamp things a little!

I was quite mortified to come on here and see how I had left things, which isn't unusual for me having to jump up every five seconds to separate my son from any nearby pointy objects. But it is something that frustrates me terribly, particularly when Christmas came along. Man, I was nuts! Set myself way too much to do (all handmade objects for presents... EEK!).

Saving the details of that, and reviewing how I have been lately, I think it's safe to say that I am ever so slightly disorganised :( and need to make that one hefty opposite!

So... Lets see if I can manage this... I have an Etsy shop which you can have a look at if you wish.
It's probably the only thing I have tried really REALLY hard to look into regularly, so I am quite proud to say I can manage my time sometimes! Lol! But any mum will know just how demanding things can be when you do the full time thing which means not much TV for them, plenty of hands on learning, day trips, mess!!! So my etsy shop is a real achievement and worth a mentioning! Thankyou if you do have a look in though! I hope you like what I do! Plenty of digital art, photo retouching, creative photography, embroidered jewelery, crochet flower brooches, pet portrait commissions, abstract art, gemstone jewelery, macrame jewelery, leather corset/waspie style belts, and leather baby/toddler belts. A huge variety I know but I love to create! It's just something I have always enjoyed be it fine art, textile or digital!

So this is a new day, and despite my lack of knowledge on the art of blogging I do feel that maybe I can handle this after all! We'll see...

Love and Light,

until tomorrow...
