Amigurumi To-Do List

Hey Peaches,  Hope you are all having a great week! My apologies for not being around much, it’s been a busy week with two work nights out and an essay due in, I have been a busy bee. With the little spare time I have had I have been teaching myself ‘Amigurumi’, this is the Japanese word for small stuffed toy and is quite a big thing in the crochet world. A few of my friends are having babies/have children so I thought I would learn to make them some little cuties. I am even thinking of opening an Etsy…

Motivational Monday #2

 This is a favourite quote of mine, and something I will always say to myself if I’m faced with a difficult situation. It is so easy to make a bigger deal out of something than necessary and spend so many hours worrying and feeling frustrated, which can really easily be avoided. If I think back to my life a year ago, my situation was completely different. I had a different job that I hated and was living in between two houses and feeling quite lost as a person in what I wanted from life. Now a year down the line so much has…

I am planning to write a few more tutorials, so what this space! 🙂 Firstly, meet Annabelle Trunk, my new crochet/crafting storage box. I had annoyed V-man by leaving balls of wool, knitting needles, hooks and patterns all over our flat, so treated myself to this beauty to keep it all in one…

Motivational Monday #1

Hey Peaches, Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today I am starting a new feature, Motivational Mondays. We all hate Mondays so here is a bit of inspiration to get you through your day.  Today I’m bringing you one of my favourite quotes, by Marc Jacobs. This is something I’ve only come to realise only in the last couple of years, and that is to be completely myself and stop trying to fit in all the time. Who wants to be the same as everyone else?  It’s exhausting. The person who taught me this was my awesome boyfriend, V-man,…
