Photo Diary Since The Last Blog Post

16 Dec

My Cousin Sent Me Four @frankieMagazine - She's Awesome.
Another Present In Progress.
Catching Up In Blogs.
The Sylvanian Families Set Up Of My Dreams.
Done.
Current Display at Prick Your Finger.
My Antlers Are Drying.
Pastel Tyres

All of these photos are from my iPhone and have been edited using Instagram. The best way to explain it is that it’s like Twitter and Flickr mixed together without the spam and with cool editing features integrated into it. I love it and can’t stop using it! My favourite app so far!

I’m busy knitting Christmas presents at the moment hence why I haven’t posted since the beginning of the month but hopefully after Christmas I’ll have lots to blog about and we can resume the blogging year once again! I hope you’re all well and having a happy holiday season!

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!

pictographs of my so called life

3 Jun

Pictographs is the word I get when I mix pictures and photographs in my head. I don’t know if anyone else uses it but I do. And does anyone else make up words by mixing two together? Bad example – chillax = chill+relax. Let me know if you do. I’m always on the lookout for new words to use and confuse people with! Haha.

So I thought I’d share with you a few pictures I’ve taken on my iPhone over the last week or so. Most have been taken with apps and I’ll put the links up here if you want to check them out.

(1,2,3+4 – ShakeIt; 5 – CrossProcess; 6+7 – Hipstamatic)

My mum and I visited the Hummingbird Bakery today (my second time this week after going with Kim) and I had to take before and after pictures of our time there! Yummy, yummy Red Velvet Cupcake with cream cheese frosting for me and a Chocolate Cupcake with chocolate icing and sprinkles for my mum, both with soya lattes. We also had lunch together at an amazing vegan/vegetarian cafe in Bethnal Green called The Gallery Cafe. It’s one of my favourite places and they have loads of events (both free and pay for) which are worth going along too. Whilst we were in Central London we also stopped by Cloth House on Berwick Street and I got some nice striped jersey fabric to make a skirt out of, using this tutorial I found through Toni’s blog.

The other pictures have stories which I’d love to share also, but at the moment I don’t have the time to. If you want to know about them then leave me a comment and I’ll fill you in! For now, I’ll leave you to get on with your Thursday. I’m working on my ‘C’ post for My Alphabet and I’m really looking forward to sharing it with you!!

I Heart Polaroids

18 May

Much like a lot of people in the blogging community, I am a huge fan of analog photography. Film gives a photo a completely different effect than one taken on a digital camera and edited or processed in Photoshop. I took a few Polaroids to celebrate ‘Roid Week 2010 and thought I’d share those and others here as well as some of my favourite polaroids and lomo photographs from others that I’ve added to my Flickr favourites.

(All images without credit have been taken by me. If you want to put them on your blog or WeHeartIt please give credit. For credit on other images please click on photograph).


1. seaside heights new jersey, 2. Yarn – Polaroid Week, day 5 –, 3. tea, 4. last summer, 5. Red In The Sun, 6. jesus shaves, 7. jump! for Birthdays!!!, 8. Her Name Is Luna, 9. ‘Roid Week 2010, 10. follow me there, a beautiful somewhere, 11. Dalek, 12.

(A couple of the photos haven’t turned up as the persons opted out of having their pictures used by 3rd party organisations but the links are still there so check them out!!)

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. I know I haven’t been posting much lately but I’m getting ready to do a lot of blogging from next week as I’ll be holed up at home for most of it. My wisdom teeth are coming out this time next week so I’ll have a whole lot of time on my hands (and half a hamster face too, haha!!).

Thanks for stopping by if you’ve recently discovered my blog and thank you to my regular blog readers and followers for putting up my sporadic blogging recently!

(This is my first ever illustration completed in Adobe Illustrator – what better for a geeky crafty girl than black rimmed glasses?! Hehe)

They are such a lovely thing to see and read and even if I do not reply to each one of them, please know that I truly appreciate it!! You’re awesome!
