Bank Holiday Craftiness

I hope you are all having a good Bank Holiday weekend!  For those of you not in the UK, this weekend is 3 days long as we have a lovely extra holiday on Monday!  Whoop!  As I am off on my holiday next weekend, I am spending my extra long weekend being crafty and making lists and other such holiday preparations! 

I have already organised my travel craft projects into a bag (rather difficult as I wanted to take everything).  This consists of a mini travel art journal which I have already painted the pages in, some pens, pastels, glue and pics amongst other things.  After much deliberation I managed to cut it down to 1 pencil case and 1 A4 wallet!  I also have my Scottish Adventure Journal ready to add pics and mementos from the week in as well.  There are 2 books in there (just incase I finish one), including The Yarn Harlot book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. As yet I haven't chosen the crochet projects I am going to take.  All of my travel craft projects must fit into 1 smallish bag - this is what I have told myself - but I'm sure I can squeeze a magzine and some crochet into my handbag to (my husband will never know!)

Last week I found yet another new craft magazine called Craftseller.  It is aimed at people who want to make to sell and it is looking like it is going to be a good one.  There are articles from established sellers, particularly Etsy and the web, as well as projects you can make to sell.  I have been using up some old felt making some of the really cute Babushka Felties in the magazine and have adapted it to make them into little bellydancers!  So cute and very easy to do! 

I have added brooch backs to mine so they can be pinned to bags or clothing but I'm also thinking they would be great as key rings too!

She now lives on my recycled jeans bag!
As I am going to be away, this will be my last blog post for a couple of weeks.  When I return I will have plenty to share with you I am sure!  I will be posting quick updates and photos on my holiday crafting and any exciting shops and products and general craftiness I encounter when away on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gingerbreadbunny) so hop along and like the page to keep up-to-date with my crafty exploits!

Take care and see you all soon x
