Decoupaged Glasses case

Hei~! Is what I would say if I was in Finland!

As posted a while ago I got my eyesight checked and the day before yesterday I picked them up.

When I got home I thought...'These glasses cases [Because I had gotten two pairs] look quite bland...'
So I got out my decoupage medium out and pictures from the internet and the outcome was this!

I'm pretty happy with them and I'm going to do the same thing [except with other papers] to my other glasses case. I'll post it later with a tutorial included!

Before I transferred my images onto my computer I came across a very interesting image, Kevin hard at work...

From this I have decided that men may just be able to multi-task!

That's all for now,

Lolita Hat

Hola~! [Is what I would say if i was in Spain!]

Yesterday I was busily typing my tutorial for my Twit-birds when the images wouldn't load so.....*sad face :(*
On the other hand, a few weeks ago I made a [if I do say so myself] cute little Lolita hat for my friends birthday costume. My friend really liked it so I gave it to her without [stupidly] taking a photo of it. Turns out, as my mum told me, my friend's mother wore it to a fancy dress party with an 'Alice in Wonderland' theme and won first place for best hat. I was pretty proud of my crafting ^.^ and thus I'm making a new one some other time later :D

I'll post my tute as soon as google chrome loves me again,

Until then
Adios~!

P.S. If anyone has any good mangas or animes they can recommend me please comment or email me at olivia(dot)johansson24(at)gmail(dot)com

Plushies and Fabrics~!

Today I went to Richmond to get my eyesight checked and get a new pair of glasses. Whilst there I also ducked into Big W to buy some fabrics. ^.^ They sold the patterned pieces by fat quarter and the calico by about a metre. I'm still deciding as to what I want to make with them.

I also made various plushies and softies. There are whales, Twit-birds, arrows, diamonds and hearts...for now. ^.^
I was walking around the house with my camera and dawdled into the computer room where Kevin [My brother] was playing a game. I took a lovely shot trying to smile but when I mentioned it he turned around and gives me a very odd, but cute, pout.
