creating makes me happy

So I have been looking for a new notebook to stash all of my creative ideas in and take down colour patterns that I like.
This morning I saw an advert on my facebook feed for a half price personalised moleskin notebook from and in purple!
This is perfect I thought. My only difficulty was choosing what to have debossed on my notebook. In the end, I chose

Creating makes me happy

I had a little problem with my order but received the most fantastic customer service, literally the best I have ever had.

Then, to make things even better, I received an email from them with a link in it to a video of my notebook being debossed with my special words -

Look at my little words!

This company is absolutely fantastic! I cannot recommend them enough!

Amigurumi Potted Plant

A little present I made to cheer a friend up:

Free pattern from here -

I just made this with some of my Stylecraft Special DK yarn stash. It is fairly easy and as soon as I had done the main part I went mad with my own colours for the flowers and I squeezed in a lot more than the pattern said!

My friend really liked the gift, it is so lovely to make something for someone who appreciates the time and effort you put in. I feel it is thousands of times better than just picking up something generic from a shop. I was able to choose her favourite colours and make it really special.

I do have to say I found it very hard to part with this one, I loved it....

This is why I am making another!!!

Until next time x
