What I’m Wearing Wednesday… HANDMADE BROOCHES!

It was-52 degrees (that’s in celsius!) with windchill this morning, so I was kind of dressed up like the Pillsbury Dough Boy in all my layers rather than my usual floofy fancy-free self!

So to add the FUN to my outfits even when it’s dreary, I’ve been making more handmade brooches! I had previously showed off my Pie Day pie, and rainbow, but I’ve been busy creating all sorts since!

I like matching these guys to my outfits or even those silly “internet” holidays that are constantly trending on Twitter (I like using this website as you can always tell what “holidays” you should be celebrating!) just to make myself and other people happy!

Yesterday I made a quick little sunshine friend to hopefully remind people to BE HAPPY!

Tomorrow just happens to be National Hot Chocolate Day, and to celebrate I made this yummy looking brooch to spread awareness!

Monday MOTIVATION! Travel to the colourful candy coated worlds of PIP AND POP!

Outside my window is ridiculously, no good, oh so freezing, why do I live here – COLD!!! Everybody is daydreaming about getting away to a hot sandy beach far far away to escape the cold. Me, I’m not such a big fan of hot either – but a trip to a magical land of CANDY is much more my thing!

One of my favourite artists and a big sweet-toothed inspiration of mine is the installation artist PIP AND POP. Pip and Pop (also known as Australian artist Tanya Schultz) creates entire worlds filled with candy, sparkly rainbow sugar, and complete and utter HAPPINESS that transport you back to the carefree days of your childhood when your teeth just ACHED from FAR TOO MANY SWEETS and there was endless possibility!

You can’t help but wanting to build a little house on the foot of a towering glittering sugar sweet mountain! Let’s GO!

You can explore and drool over her worlds here on Instagram or Facebook!

Sunday Snaps… Cats in space edition!

It’s ANOTHER colder than -40 degree weekend so Sugar and I are daydreaming of being ANYWHERE but here!

So we went… TO SPACE!

Nyan Cat irl!

It all started when I was working on my felt food yesterday (almost ready to open a cafe lol!)

And from poptarts I was reminded of…

NYAN NYAN! I threw on a rainbow and bribed Sugar with a handful of treats to sit still for ONE picture and voila! Flying poptart cat!

Gotta make ’em all… 151 Pokemon plushies!

I started a new project this week dedicated to one of my longest obsessions – POKEMON! I had this crazy idea to create all of the Pokemon in teeny tiny feltie form.

Here are the starters… Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle and their evolutions!

Felt Starter Pokemon~ Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle and their evolutions!
The first nine!

I’m hoping to get about one feltie friend done a day, and then will be done in six months (or so!) Right now, I’m just doing the original 151… because there are currently 721 Pokemon and that would take a LIFETIME!!

I’m going to try and post my adventures in felt Pokemon every Friday… so hello Feltie Friday!

Happy Pie Day!!

Today is apparently National Pie Day! Of course it’s a silly holiday but I’m always ready to celebrate, because we all need a bit more FUN in life!

Pie Day calls for a special pie themed outfit for What I’m Wearing Wednesday, of course! Unfortunately I don’t have a pie dress (YET!), or an actual pie (that’s crusty!), but I have the next best thing: a homemade PIE PIN!

It’s a delicious piece of felt cherry pie! Don’t you just want to dig right in?!

I’m usually a pretty simple outfit wearer: just a dress, tights, and cardigan. So I really love a couple of thoughtful accessories – as tiny little details really bring your whole outfit together and allow you to be ANYTHING! So I threw on my pin and my day was a slice! 😀

Hope you’re having a super sweet day!
