I've Been Busy...

Happy Saturday Everyone.
I had a day off yesterday (which was good because it came round quick but i don't think its going to feel so good by Thursday when Ive gone insane from no day off in a while on the Easter holidays....i think I'm going to have to think of my happy place...a lot)
I was very productive yesterday and made a whole stack of stuff.

First i made these cards from some great (and cheap) charity shop finds...

I think the buttons finish them off nicely.

i found a little stamp set for 3 pound! yesterday so i put it to good use.
Then i made these little fellas....

They are for the stuffed nonsense stall at the craft fair (if you look close you can see our new tags on their sides!! how exciting!) they are lavender scented plush go on a baby's cot or door handle in their room....the lavender will help them theory.

here's this little fella practising his new job. i like their sleepy eyes. i hope that these will become one of the designs that is unique to stuffednonsense, like the plumps and dust bunnies. (woah...that sounded a bit professional.)

Lastly...i made this little monster...

He is called Sting because he is yellow and black like a wasp,but he is not mean and nasty like a wasp.

Well that's it. the fruits of my day off. i learnt one very important lesson yesterday....don't get lavender oil in your mouth....tastes nasty!! Oh, what do you think of the cards and snoozes....their new to me and i want to make sure that they have some appeal before i go on a making binge and make loads!!!

I'll be back soon...I'm not at work until five...who knows whats gong to spring out of the sewing corner by then???



  1. I think the snoozes are great. Its hard to see the cards. Did you take illustartions from books?

  2. Wow you've been busy. Love My little pony, cards are great way of re-cycling retro items-buttons defo finish it off. Love the little face hangers, may purchase one of them if u pop them on the site for my sis, she's due to have her baby in the next week.
    Also where did you get your tags that you've stitched to the side from?
    Have a great arvo Em x
