It's Crafty Tuesday!

You wouldn't believe what i accomplished today!
Even i couldn't believe it...
Up early and get on with my usual Crafty Tuesday - i only have Tuesday's till 3pm to 'work' so you can bet i make the most of it... So, i cut out 20 or so felt hearts in many colours. So satisfying to see them all lined up, ready for action. Ready to made into fun Brooches.
I cut all the contrasting polka dot ribbons to clash and compliment with the heart colours....i love watching this build up of colour.

And when they get to look like THIS in a big pile.... i am in-love! I want to make them into a huge mobile of dangling colourful rainbow love, hhmmmmmm.


I spent a while bundling them into different places / into jars / onto trays .... just photographing their lovliness.

One by one, there comes the fiddly stage. Felt discs, button choice, thread decisions....
They are for a couple of wholesale orders which i really enjoy doing BUT only in minimum quantity. I don't like to feel like a prodcution line.
Although i only pay myself a minimum wage, the work place is comfortable and i can take a tea break whenever i like! I also get to email my friends when i like and arrange treats.
I did make more today (yes, i did!) but i shall save that surprise for another day x

yummy colours :D

craft tuesday sounds like a good idea to me - I may have to follow suite (but possibly with a different day of the week as I spend most of it helping cook at an organisation in the area)

I would kill for a day a week doing some crafty stuff!
Instead I spend the odd crafty moment in between housework and entertaining a 3 year old!

what lovely colours, I must make some hearts for Valentines!

I am lucky in a way - but my husband would still have to rearrange his time to look after our 4 yr old if i went 'out' to work so this way, we all win!
