Felt and Fasting

I have not written for quite a while and for those of you who do not know, we have entered the holy month of Ramadan so things are a bit hectic as of late. My schedule is jam packed and every bit of time I get has to be utilized. Late nights and early morning leave very little time for crafting and just about everything else. I have however got some free time today to update my blog and let you all know what I have been up to.

Firstly, without further ado I have announce the winner of the altered journal. The winner is.... (drum roll please)... Pippelotjie!
Congratulations, you will be contacted shortly and once I have you colour choices than I can get started on your journal. Thank you to everyone who entered. My Ami will now be called Shirley. I am sure she will love that name.

Good news, today I have reached 1000 views and I am so thankful to everyone who took the time out to stop by.

I have received such great feedback on my tutorial and lo and behold people have commented on how easy it is to understand. That was my only hope and I am glad that I achieved it. Even my mom said that she found it really understandable so thanks mum, my number one fan, I love you to smithereens lol.

As far as crafting, I have made quite some headway on my dolls house and I even got around to making an adorable kitchen sink. I wish I could have put together a tutorial for it because I love how it came out but it was a bit of an experiment so not even I knew how it would look.
Cute huh?I know the photo is a bit dark. It still needs taps too.                 

 A friend of mine found this great tutorial for miniature books and even though mine are not the same (for lack of podge which is still on my shopping list) I still think they are really cute

Miniature books.

I also took some time out to make some adorable felt bottle cap pincushions and I must say that my sewing skills have gotten better. I was so inspired by these photos that I had to try my hand at making them. If you ever decide to go ahead and make some, I would love to see how they turn out and maybe share it here.

As for my contribution well...

A little coffee mug and a cupcake.
2 heart themed pincushions.

 So while I rush off to go do my ever growing to-do list, I wish you farewell and to all my muslim friends and fmily, I wish you well over Ramadan ...Chow!
