goodnight and a cake

Evening lovelies! Its sooo late again! My eyes are actually stinging. Anyway, I got 7 out of 14 to do's done today! Yippee. 6 days left to do the other 7. Good start. However, my to do lists have a cheeky little habit of extending themselves through the week! Just been admiring the work of the AMAZING Cath Kidston. in...love! I came across this amazingly sweet wedding cake. It's just perfect!

Goodnight everyone, sweet dreams!

Good Morning! I know...bit unusual for me to be posting so early but my little angel is playing so nicely with his car, i thought I could steal a few minutes while im getting ready. Just enjoying my third coffee of the day. Yummy. Lots to do today, I have 14 items on my to do list for this week. Some are a bit dull but there are some fun ones on there too like starting my art journal and making my stationery for the brand. As soon as I have some designs, I will post them on here and reveal the name too. Hope everyone has a fantastic day!

something blue...

Evening! I just this minute finished this cute little blue bracelet. I think it will look super, either on a summery day or dressed up a bit in the evening, what do you think? Loving the colour blue at the moment, actually most pastels really. Baby Pink, Powder Blue and Mint Green...they all sound gorgeous too. Here it is!

is it springtime yet?

Evening all, I am so excited for it to be Spring. I love this time of year, everything is so new and fresh and colourful. It's all so uplifting, makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning instead of snuggling under your warm duvet. Not that I ever get that chance, I get yanked out of bed as soon as Haydn is up, wanting his weetabix immediately! At least now I can do it with all the promise of the day ahead! Been busy busy today, I did a little project on the side for my little brother Darren and then this evening, I have been in craft heaven! I finally got the internet working on the wireless too so I can blog in comfort from my desk. I have been thinking hard about names for my craft/jewelry brand and have a few ideas but I'm going to keep them under wraps for now I think. Don't want to Jinx it! Although a little teensy hint would be the word key...I'm saying no more! I made a button box this evening, that is super sweet but not nearly big enough to house my enormous button collection!

Happy Friday

Hi all, been soo busy lately, found it hard to get 10 minutes to sit down at my mac and blog. Nevermind, Im here now. I have a huge huge love for buttons at the moment. Especially metal ones or cute whimsical ones. I've been having a go at making jewelry the last week or so and im super happy with how its turning out. Ill try and get some nice pics up later today...just need a willing hand model! I've been scouring the net for some pretty pretty buttons and I've come up with these, I seriously need them all....like now!

This embroidered button hoop is so cute, don't you think? I'd love to have this on my wall!

I also love drawings of buttons, so sweet. I'd love a notebook covered in drawn buttons.

These are my favourite kind of buttons, pretty metal ones. They look soooo good when they are made into jewelry too!

and what more can I possibly say about these beauties except, oh my gosh i want to eat them all. Yummiest buttons I've ever seen by far!

And while this isn't strictly all buttons its still stunning. So inspiring, I could sit looking all day!
Ok lovlies, I must get on and make some pretties to show later. Enjoy your fabulous Friday!

Love Missy


Vintage look, button bracelet

Evening, well goodnight almost, I'm really sleepy but I just wanted to post this bracelt I made earlier today. I made it for my bestie but it's soo cute Im going to make some more, maybe keep one for me and sell some on etsy. It's not the most amazing pic Im afraid but Ill hopefully have a connector for my camera soon and Ill be able to use pics from that rather than my trusty iphone...although I do still love you iphone, you are the best gadget!

Goodnight everyone, creative dreams!

Cupcake heaven...

My first ever decorated cupcake. Im sooo chuffed with it, its really cute. Thinking these would be a creally nice idea to have instead of placecards at my wedding with little signs in them with peoples names on them.

p.s they tasted really good too! Hope your monday is happy!

A Mothers Day full of Cake!

It's Mother's Day and I have been completely spoiled by my baby boy. Lots of cupcake making goodies. Im going to decorate some pretty pretty cakes this afternoon hopefully and I will post some piccies on here. I also have some pics of things I've been making recently that I need to get on here. Im hoping to get some better pictures done of them...I just need a model and a pretty location...hmmm think think think.

Off to make cupcakes now lovies!

Alice in Wonderland...

I went to see the new Alice in Wonderland in 3D last night....one word...AMAZING! Im still super high and floaty from watching it. I now want to live in the white castle and wear those B.E.A.utiful dresses and defiantely want to have mad tea parties. I think I might aim to have one this summer. Lots of teaz and delicious cupcakes.

I have to admit that I have always liked Anne Hathaway films, they are so light hearted, princess type pics. but she is sooo lovely in this. Even though the floaty way she walks rounds made me smile. I would like to be her in this film hehe!

I love love love the magical dream world of wonderland. Actually any magical land really, labyrinth, narnia...i could go on!

And last but definately not least...Mr Johnny Depp. What an amazing actor. He makes the mad hatter soooo loveable. I didnt think too much of the hatter in disneys version but he was by far my favourite character in this version. Again, I am biased as I do love Mr. Depp in most of his films.

All in all it was one of the best films I've seen in ages, especially as it was in 3D. I want to watch it again to see the details I missed.

Happy Mothers Day to all the yummy mummies too

Good evening!

I've been thinking about a dreamy situation, I would absolutely love one day to start up a cute handmade pretties shop alongside a cupcakery, where I would also sell hand decorated cupcakes and sweets! Yummy, I'd like to have it set in a gorgeous country cottage and have a studio in the back where I can make beautiful things all day long. I'd also like to open my studio up every now and again to hold small intimate workshops on crafting/bookbinding and maybe sugarcraft. I would live upstairs with my boys and have some chickens in the back garden, and maybe a goat.

I love this cottage, it's so pretty and has so much character, i'd love this to be treasure and treats!
