5 Things Sunday...

First off, please excuse the absence, I haven't done much crafting of late because of uni and life.  I've been reading a lot of blogs lately, and one feature which I think is really cool is a "x things which I love this week" post.  I thought this was a good idea to get me back into blogging again!  That, and stop me from randomly posting random things all the time... Hehe.  So here we go, my first (hopefully of many) 5 Things Sunday~

1. Wild Olive 

Such a great crafting blog!!  There's the cutest patterns which you'll ever find on the internet, and so much other stuff as well.  I can't wait to use more of her patterns!  The picture above is a stitch from a pattern of hers which I did quickly a few days ago (for an assignment, I'll blog about it later!).  It's so cute!

2. Kiss My Button Vintage
Facebook-based Australian vintage clothing store, with the most awesome clothes!  It's updated frequently too, which is just as awesome.  I've just bought a skirt from there, which I can't wait to get!

3. Howrse
It's an online horse breeding game which has kept me amused and interested for a little while now, if you like horses, I totally recommend it!  (Yes, the link is an unapologetic referral ;)  Click here for a non-referral.  Hehe.

4. Antique-esque Jewellery
I've come to love antique-esque jewellery of late, especially that necklace from Ruche.  They have so many pretty things there... Ahh a girl can dream...

5. Community
(Thought I was going to say coffee?  Not this week ;) )  This is my go-to show when I need a laugh.  If you haven't checked it out, you should, it's really funny.

Until next time,
Keep crafting!

Pattern: No Navi!

It's been a while...  Life's been pretty hectic around here, finally 3/4 way through my prac, so hopefully I can get more pattern making / stitching sometime...  For now, here's a small pattern inspired by this demotivational poster:

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
