So I'm addicted to apps (there's many of us addicts out there) and here's a very helpful app that will mean I can blog on the go! (Hence the name!)
I also have the official blogger app but haven't really liked using it but this is great and most importantly for me EASY! I'm now gonna be blogging on the train, at the bus stop and I'll let you guess the rest!
Thumbs up from me! Just search "bloggo" on your App Store and its £1.99 well worth it!
If you have some spare time this Christmas (and I usually don't) why not get crafty and make some presents. My family don't buy pressies as it can be quite boring getting the same beauty set every year so we make each other things. I love it as you never know what you're gonna get! Heres my favourite ideas this year from good old Pinterest, where you can never get bored and send HOURS! Enjoy!
Paper House Gift Boxes
This is one of my all time favourite paper gift box freebies online from the fabulous Design mom. You have to give it a go and they are sooo cute! The receiver of this gift will LOVE it! Plus t holds a secret present inside, just gorgeous!
Got any old toys or models hanging around the house that you don't want anymore? Why not paint them up and give them as a useful unique gift like this jewellery display elephant. LOVE IT!
Felt so good!
I love making things from felt as its easy, cheap and looks so cute! I'm gonna give this cute idea for a phone cover a go and you should too!
I'm a huge fan of pompoms! They are pretty simple to make (take a look here) and you can make them any size. I'm loving the idea of making a pompom scarf for my mum so I better get myself off to the crafty shop and grab some cute wool!
OK, so this looks complicated but its not, trust me. Make a round cushion, cut out small flowers from felt and stitch them on! What did I tell you! Perfect for my sister!
Who doesn't like fudge? It comes in every flavour you can imagine so I'm gonna make a little mixed batch in cute boxes (easy and cheap, whoop!) These are the recipes I'm using:
Its nearly Halloween so time to get creative and carve those pumpkins!
My arty sister Kate loves carving pumpkins and heres her tips on how to do it!
1. Draw in your design.
When doing this try to use a non-pernimant pen as when your finished carving you can rub off any pen left on. Kate likes a challenge so she drew this design of a silhouette of a witch in a window. Pretty cool!
2. Prepare the carving area
You'll need a sharp knife (be carful), rubbish bags, scoop or spoon and a candle, tea lights work best- pretty simple! It can get messy so watch out, but that makes it more fun!
3. Make a lid
Cut off the top of the pumpkin, this will make your lid and protect your candle from blowing out.
4. Trim the lid
Cut off any extra bits from the inside of the lid - nice and clean thats how we like it
5. Time to scoop!
Time to scoop like you've never scooped before! This can take a while and you may need to use a knife so be careful.
6. Carving time!
Kate used a scalpel - you can get quite delicate designs from this but if you don't have one a small sharp knife will do.
7. Enjoy your pumpkin!
After carving simply pop in the tea light, wait for it to get dark and enjoy your spooky work! For the caldrons smoke Kate carve the shape and removed the pumpkin skin. this allows some light to shine through and can give your designs that extra wow factor!
Enjoy being crafty with your pumpkins and have a terrifyingly great Halloween!
