Love Listography

I  Love lists, I write them all the time, at work, on the bus, at home.  The pleasure that I get when I can tick something off it makes me feel that the trifle stuff in my life is being accomplished and i’ll be ready to tackle the larger things, which of course, lay further down the list.


This book theLove listography’ has space for you to write those you’ve kissed (probably not enough room for my list), name those one night stands (if you can remember their names) and list your favourite love songs

Other list books by Lisa Nola include My Listography: My Amazing life in lists, Music listography journal and My Future Listography: All I hope to do in Lists

Don’t you love it when a book provides you with more ways to procrastinate?! 🙂

Felting Friends

 

I keep talking about wanting to have a pet- I’d love a cute little kitten or a puppy, but in reality I’m not a pet person.  I’d probably forget to feed them or lock them out of the house or something.

So in the mean time, while I wait till my responsibity gene kicks in, i’ll make my own furry friends using Kyuutoi’s book.


Little Blue Bird

 

 

Here’s my first little friend made by needle felting.  This technique involves stabbling an extreamly sharp barbed needle into wool roving very quickly and carefully.  It’s pretty much impossible to avoid making your fingers bleed at some point!

This little critter took a couple of hours to complete, but hopefully i’ll get quicker!

I first learnt about felting from watching needle felter Jenn Docherty on the Martha Stewart show.  Her designs are so beautiful I want them all!

Isn’t this georgous!  All of    her animals are cute as.  For  the person who has  everything these would  make a great little gift.  Check out jenns etsy  store here.
