Long time, no blog.

Last year I made my last blog post here on the 7th April, 2013. Why did I stop after that? I have no idea! I guess life just got in the way, as it does.

But now, on the second day of 2014, I'm filled with all the well-intentioned goals that everyone else has: to start afresh, and stick to it! (we shall see ;) )

Here's how the rest of my 2013 went, in pictures:

Easter 2013 involved lots of delicious cupcakes with these cute little fluffy chickens

A lot of work went on in my sewing/dressing/closet/work room. These are my new shelves from Ikea, which I love!

This made me laugh, A LOT. Both the original and the chicken version.

So many beautiful sunsets last year

 Lots of visits to beautiful places throughout Ireland too

Probably spent too much time here

But it was all in aid of my newly refurbished Etsy Shop
I renamed it 'Fleurette' and started working on some cute hair accessories for it

The above are some of the hair bows I've made, I hope to work on lots more (including miniatures) for sale in 2014

At the start of December I took a trip to the UK to visit a friend. We spent one of our days in Brighton taking long walks on the pier, and I got to drool over the window at Choccywoccydoodah


And then Christmas arrived with little or no warning and it was tacky decoration time (yay)

I loved every minute of December - the excitement, the stress, the present buying, the present wrapping, the last minute running around...I'm just sad that it's over now.

My poor dolls house fell by the wayside... Work on it ceased; it sits forlornly where it sat last April, but maybe 2014 will be the year that it gets finished
 (I hope so, my husband will kill me if he falls over one more time!)

 2013 brought great times and challenging times. I am disappointed I didn't put more work into this blog but with the new year comes new ideas and I'm hoping I can share them here with you - whoever is out there :)

 So expect a series of random posts; I have realised that making miniatures, while so exciting and fun, is incredibly time consuming and I don't always have the hours to spend applied to it. But I hope to share all the others things I love and make - fashion-wise, crafty-wise and home-wise.

How was your 2013?
