Birthday Wishlist: Part Deux

17 Feb

With only two weeks to go, these are a few of the more pricey gifties I would L-O-V-E to receive and would be eternally grateful for…

A subscription to Frankie Magazine too keep me in the loop with the Australian crafty and fashion scenes…

Issue 8 of Uppercase Magazine and a subscription if it could be arranged…

This gorgeous print from Pretty Little Thieves…. (Side Note: If anyone can find headphones like the ones she’s wearing, I will love you forever!!)

Any of these gorgeous one of a kind headbands from Ban.Do’s Black Label – I think all of these ones have sold which is a shame but hopefully next time!

I can’t believe that in just over 2 weeks I’ll be 25. I know it’s not a big age, like 30, 40, 50 or 60 but it’s one of those birthday’s that you want to remember as you’ve finally got to the finish line of that first quarter of your life (if you live to 100 that is!!)

There are a few exciting things going on around here and on the Wednesday Knit blog soon, so keep your eyes peeled over the coming days for a few announcements and a return to your regular blogging schedule!!

Crafty Foxes is 1!

15 Mar

Katja’s bloggiversary post reminded me that the 13th March 2010 marked the first full year of blogging for this Crafty Fox!! One whole year! When I started I thought that this would be little more than just a small time, once a month thing marking the Crafty Foxes monthly craft group meetings. Boy, was I wrong!

The blog has turned into more than just a hobby but something that has introduced me to new friends and inspirations, kept me in touch with family abroad and provided me with a place to vent (I’ve written a fair few drafts that have been deleted just so I could get some feelings out that needed purging!!). It’s also been a great place to share my dreams, inspirations and friends with new readers and old. The blog has been my diary, my journal, documenting the things I am most proud of or wanting to remember.

The thing I am most humbled by is the fact that people other than my parents and relatives read this. Whenever I receive a lovely new comment in my inbox from a new reader it makes my heart skip a beat knowing that someone has taken the time to do so and have really looked at what my blog has to offer them. I must say I’m guilty of blog surfing most of the time but I understand how it can really make someone’s day when that comment is left. THANK YOU, sincerely from the bottom, middle and top of my heart. You, the blog readers, are what keep me going with this venture and who push me to keep posting about new and interesting things!

Sorry the Sunday Round Up has been hijacked this week but I needed to say thank you and hope that you’ll keep reading for another year! More cake for you!

Or, I could just be taken wool shopping at Loop, John Lewis and/or Prick Your Finger!! There’s something I love in each of them!

There are a few other things on my list like vintage buttons and lace doilies and vintage letterpress letters spelling out ‘Crafty Foxes’. I do get a little excited by my birthday and I’m looking forward to it this year. It’ll give me a chance to see friends from around London again who I miss terribly but don’t have enough cash to go visit!

Katja also put a birthday gift list up on her blog (our birthdays are a day apart) so if you’re feeling super generous and want to buy us gifts go check it out! Not that we expect anyone to! It’s more just a huge hint drop to our families, friends and loves! Hehe.
