Wish List Wednesday

I wish I could crochet!

I wish I had taken the opportunity to learn how to crochet when my mum was still alive and she would offer to teach me. She was the queen of crochet. We used to have hundreds of crochet blankets in rainbow colours on our beds and on the couch. Back in those days I thought this was terribly uncool, now they are trendy lol.

I wish I could crochet!

The good thing about this wish is that I can do something about it, I can learn, I can watch YouTube videos, read books, whatever it takes. I can become a crochet master lol, well maybe not a master but I can have a go can't I :o)

Arty Farty Friday

Ok Arty Farty Friday here we are. I thought I'd share a couple of my new favorite artists seeing as I haven't done anything crafty for a while to be able to share with you.
First up we have fello Aussie Kate Mason from Scrapps Flea Market on Etsy. I just love this girls style so colourful, fun and whimsical. I like mixed media art and she does it so well. I'd really like to get some of these prints to hang on my eldest daughters wall.

The last one reminds me of me and my daughters <3
The next one is an artist I only just discovered the other day through Instagram. Her instagram name is Spooksieboo and she has an etsy shop called Moonlit Art Shop. What I really love is her spooky caricatures and she does family portraits, so as soon as her shop opens again (she is closed for vacation) I am going to get a family portrait done!

Wish List Wednesday

Haven't done a wish list Wednesday in such a long time. Thought it might be good to try and get back into regular posting again on here, so I'm starting with Wish list Wednesday and hopefully on Mondays I'll have Monday Mosaic and on Fridays Arty Farty Friday.
Ok so what am I lusting after this week well first off it has to be this cute Cath Kidston bag (which I did order hehe). I seem to be on a bit of a handbag buying spree at the moment.

Secondly I love this wig! I saw it on someone's doll on Flickr and fell in love with it. So pretty, and who wouldn't want rainbow colored hair!

Fairy lights, yep fairy lights. I need to find a nice strand to hang on the top of my big Expedit. So far around here they are proving hard to find.

This little Dream High Studio doll popped up in my Flickr photostream and I did a double take! Such a cute tiny little fae. If I had a spare $275 I would be ordering her. She is so delicate and other wordly.

Lastly Disney Store Villain collector dolls! OMG! Love them especially Maleficent and the Queen of Hearts.
