Renegade Craft Fair

It’s been such a long time since I have posted, almost 4 months! I was busy with my new job for a while, and then I was sulking for a while because I made my own craft ironing board and took loads of photos of the process, well the short story is I’ve lost them, and I’ve lost hours of my life looking through my folders, my cameras, using photo recovery software and then came to the conclusion that they might be on another memory card- could I find that anywhere? No. I’m hoping it will show up eventually, and that they’re on there!!

Anyway, craft wise during that time I’ve made a few embroidery hoops and a few Christmassy things and I’ve been crocheting a blanket. I will post some pictures of what I’ve made, but if you follow me on instagram @josiemakes I post things on there more regularly.

Yesterday I went to Renegade Craft Fair in east London with So Joey and it was so great, full of small craft businesses. Jewellery, accessories, homeware, illustrations, papercrafts and much more! I think I took a business card from almost every stall and am about to go through them finding them all on instagram and etsy and filling up my shopping basket!!!

These are the beautiful things I bought!

I saw this cute rain cloud necklace at the start of the day and had to go back to get it! I loved a lot of their stuff they had Christmas Jumper necklaces that I still have my eye on for Christmas but this was the thing that stood out to me on the day, it’s different from anything I have yet jewellery wise and I like to wear jewellery that expresses my moods!! Anyway I do like the rain, today has been such a lazy day, crocheting under my blanket watching Gavin and Stacey while it rains outside.

For the Love of Mermaids!

So if you didn’t know (and if you didn’t know then you will soon) I love all things mermaid! Just look at this mermaid cross stitch I designed and made if you don’t believe me! So when I recently saw this wonderful mermaid necklace in an instagram post by @listiquesjewellery I couldn’t resist!

Beautiful Birthday Gifts!

Wednesday was my birthday, and I had some lovely gifts. I saw my friends last Sunday, we were supposed to have a picnic but the weather was awful so we just watched a few movies in my house. My mum also bought me a ticket to see Matilda on stage in June, I have seen it before and I LOVED it!!!

Oh my god!!! I need to learn to knit asap.

My first ever Tatty Devine necklace- of my name!!! From So Joey

My mum remembered that I mentioned I wanted to find some gemstones to make into jewellery and found these in a shop when she went to Liverpool!

I feel so lucky, and loved, and happy!
