  • a portrait of vince
  • vince’s portrait of howard (you’ll recognise him straight away!) – phizzychick must have broken into the zoo to get it!

  • a felt forest casual brooch, boosh logo brooch and polo mint keyring
  • a pendant with the logo on one side, vince and howard on the other
  • mutant animal postcards
  • pink hubba bubba (i’m a little afraid to open it – in case something charlie-ish comes out „charlie likes you. he think’s you’re funny“)
  • a tiny zooniverse with gorilla house, naboo in his shop, the reptile house and charlie sliding along looking evil Cheesy amazing!

here close-ups of the zooniverse:

crafting 365

i joined the group „crafting 365“ on flickr where the members craft every day for a year and post their photos there. so this is my 1st-day-project :)

i made the hearts from scrap sock yarn. so now i have matching hearts to wear with my socks 😉

leafy spring socks

i had to try out the yarn i bought on ebay! so i started socks with a leaf pattern in a light green colour. knitting with the untwisted yarn is not as difficult as i thought… but i’ll try to stop myself from going on before i finished my endpaper mitts. one at a time (at least i’m trying to tell that to myself 😉 )

tiramisu soap – my first try in soap making

so here it comes, my first try in soap making. a lovely tiramisu soap. it was so hard not to try and eat the stuff :)

this is what i did: dived my melt and pour soap into two parts.
part 1 – mixed it with coffee oil, coconut oil and brown food coloring
part 2 – mixed it with vanilla oil, coconut oil, one drop of yellow food coloring and real amaretto

then i poured it in layers into a cake tin. on the top i sprinkled a little cocoa.

it just smells incredible!

and this is what it looks like:
