Cupcakes and Canvasses

It has been no secret on this blog that one of my favorite things to bake / stitch is cupcakes.  I love me some cupcakes, they're just so cute!  How could you not love the adorable-ness (...that so is a word) of cupcakes?

There's also something I've  been crushing on for a while - canvasses!  I love the canvas prints, they always look amazing.  A blank wall + a bored Christine + Wild Olive's cupcake patterns =...

All three!
The middle one's a bright pink actually, for some reason my camera decided to make it... coral =P
I made cupcake canvasses!

Here's the wall before, kinda plain and boring:

The "before" wall
Yes, I have 3 plushies on my desk, and yes, one has a tiara.  'Cause I'm cool like that =D
And now, with my canvasses hung up:

The "after" wall
Much better!
So on my wall, we have a...

Choc-mint cupcake

and my personal favorite... 

Red velvet cupcake!
Red velvet with cream cheese frosting, of course!

The patterns are by Wild Olive - the bigger ones are from here, and the smaller one here!

Is there a specific thing that you love to make?  Or do you prefer to make whatever takes your fancy?

Until next time,

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.
