Hiya!

7 Nov

I know it’s been pretty quiet around here for a little while. Lots of stuff has happened in my personal life over the last 3 months and to be honest I took a break from a lot of social media because I wanted to and needed to. I’ve been reassessing a lot of things in life and I took the time out to make new friends, spend time with old ones and my family and go to a festival (Bestival – it was AMAZING!).

But now, I’m back. I don’t know how often I’ll be blogging but I want to try and make it worth your while reading when I do. My blog posts will probably be a little more personal too – it’s time people got to know me. The person behind the blog. I know, I’m actually a real-life person who writes this blog! Haha.

So what am I going to try and blog about? I want to write about gay rights, music, crafts, fashion, mental health, knitting, pretty things that I think are pretty and want to share, and so much more! I just hope that you’ll find it all interesting and will keep on reading my little ol’ blog!

Okay, I’m heading off for this evening but I’ll be back soon with a few outfit posts and maybe a few knitting posts too!

Merry Christmas!

23 Dec

Christmas Deer 2.
As most bloggers are doing right now, I’m signing off for a few days or so to spend some quality time with my family and loved ones. Plans changed at the last minute this year so this Christmas is a London Christmas and I’m looking forward to spending it at my home.

Be safe on your travels if you’re going home and enjoy yourself once you’re there! I hope you get everything you could wish for and more. And thank you for reading my blog this year. It means so much to know that people might take something away from here that inspires them or helps them in one way or another.

Merry Christmas everyone!!

A Few Lovelies From The Inty-Web

7 Sep

Hello Foxes and Foxettes!

I have recently been perusing the interweb for the latest lovelies to offer you here at Crafty Foxes Central. You may have seen these on other blogs, you may know of them already from magazines or you may actually be the people I’m featuring (and if that’s the case say hi!). I am slowly changing the look of this blog, introducing new features and integrating into another server eventually (the alphabet is still the deadline for this and I will be continuing with that series soon!!).

In the meantime, enjoy the links and pictures I have found! (Each image can be clicked on to take you through to the artist/crafter/magazine website)

Bindi Booth – just lovely!

Artemis Russell’s wedding photo’s – so amazing!

Nathalie Lete – lovely handtufted rugs that look like paint by numbers pictures!

Louise Evans – she makes Super Duper Things! (Also the name of her Etsy shop!)

Lune Vintage – loving those deer legwarmers!!

Art Equals Happy – I love this picture of Kim! She looks so purdy! (And will probably not agree with me but I don’t care! I Love You and am glad you’re my real life friend!!)

Girls in a Bottle from A Print A Day – In Love!

Frankie 2011 Diary – I’m looking for a new one and would like this one please!

Inga Birgisdottir – Funny illustrations that make me want to take a cut out moustache everywhere with me!! (This image was taken from Creature Comforts blog)

Sophie Blackall – I saw this series featured recently in Oh Comely magazine here in the UK and straight after she has popped up all over the place, on blogs far and wide! I love the owl.

The Gluttonous Vegan – Yum. That is all.

And finally, A Beautiful Mess (Elsie Flannigan) – who doesn’t love plaid and florals in Autumn? The leaves haven’t quite turned yet but there is a chill in the air and it’s raining a lot more here in London. Can’t wait to get myself a nice warm flannel shirt that I can wear with jeans and wool tights and thick woolen skirts!

I do hope you’ve enjoyed these little bits and pieces and I’ll be back soon with more.

Hey!

31 Aug

As you may have noticed, my posting here has been pretty sporadic lately. I’ve been dealing with some personal issues and have recently started a new job as a classroom assistant, which is challenging but enjoyable! It’s giving me new challenges to face each day I’m at work and I know I’m not going to have to deal with repetitive tasks (apart from maybe lesson plans) day in day out. Teaching is something I’ve had an interest in for a long time and I’ve recently made the decision to apply for a PGCE to teach Media Studies to 14-19 year olds! I’m currently in the process of writing out my personal statement and wondering how I can get it down to 47 lines!! Haha. I’ll get there eventually….

I’ve also been busy with my crafty escapades, some of which I’m still planning and some of which are soon-to-be-announced-but-currently-secret-squirrel-business. The only thing I can share is that it is a collaboration with an amazing lady – see if you can guess who it is (although I won’t tell until we decide to go public and you won’t win any prizes, sorry! Haha).

I’ve still been trying to keep up-to-date with all the blogs though and have seen some serious inspiration lately. It’s one thing I love about the blogging community…you’re never far away from something to brighten your day, make you look at things in a new light or spark a really good idea!! A few of my favourite pictures found either via blogs or flickr from the past few weeks…

(By the way, if anyone feels like being generous and buying me this necklace I’ll love you forever and a day! Well, I have to be a little cheeky here, haha! And it’s only $57.50 including shipping to the UK!)

I’ve also been spending quite a bit of time with friends old and new. It’s been great getting out of the house on nice days and wandering around various parts of London, searching for places and objects and coming across random jumble sales and things that would look great in my room/house!

Autumn is almost here too and I’m so in the mood for jumpers and woolly knit hats. And toffee nut lattes. We don’t get pumpkin spice over here which I’m a bit bummed out about but hopefully I’ll get to taste it one day! I’ll be back again soon with more of my alphabet and more posts about what I’m up to! I’ve missed you all and thanks for continuing to visit The Crafty Foxes!

I’m Coming Back Soon

22 Aug

fox family XO.

Life sometimes gets in the way of everything else you want to keep doing. Blogging has been one of the affected areas and I apologise to you all. I hope you’ve been keeping up with all the other blogs out there though – I know I have!

This long break has been needed though and I’ve been able to regroup and regain my creativity again. It’s time to come back again. See you soon!
