Shameless eBay post!

Sorry for this but I'm spamming my blog with my ebay link as I'm having a huge clearout! Everything starts at £3 or less and most of it is vintage! Visit my page here!

Just a few more new goodies I've made this week and added to my page :)

I take orders mainly through facebook now because alot of my stock is now being sold in a shop in Huddersfield called Crafty Praxis so if you're local, go check them out! Nothing I sell is over £5.00 and I charge £1.00 for shipping on most items. :)

 £2.50 each.
 Genuine turquoise - £3.00 each.

I really wish I had a good camera so I could capture my pieces better!!

Say hello to the newest members of my family!

This is Pip and Dizzy (Dizzys hiding!) and they're my little Dumbo Ratties!

Most people shudder when I tell them I have rats but they really are such loving animals and now they're getting older they each have their own little funny personality! I find it really hard living without a pet as I've had dogs all my life and rats for a few years when I was younger and it was love at first sight when I saw these two as babies!! Ahh they make me smile :)

3rd year..

So, monday is my first official day of my 3rd and final year at uni! Still not quite sure how I feel about it, I'm terrified for the work load but I'm excited to see how my work develops in time for my final exhibition. I'm going to try and keep up with blogging throughout the year, posting some of my work etc as I think it'll be a good way to reflect and look back on my progress.

I'm proud of myself for coming to uni, its not been easy (far from it!) but I know that at the end it'll be so worth it and I can look back and be pleased with what I achieved. I'm mostly looking forward to leaving and finding myself a job, I'm sort of fed up with the whole student life now, you knoww, living in a crappy house that falls apart, knowing you have to move in a year and other general student 'stereotypes', I'm just not that sort of person I guess and (I never thought I'd say this but) I'm actually looking forward to growing up! Having my own life away from education etc. it's scary but exciting to think about!!

I sound like a right misery don't I! How does everyone else feel about their uni lives?

What a good day!

Hurray! I finally have a folksy shop set up :) Now you can purchase my creations with ease by following this link: RosieMakesThings

I've recieved some lovely compliments lately and sold quite a few things this week so I'm feeling really positive about my shop at the moment. It's giving me confidence and putting my faith into the fact that I can do what I've always dreamed and someday own my own shop :)

I also made a new logo earlier this week, what do you think? Its simple but sweet!

New jewellery

I have added some new lovely things to my shop, go on, have a look :)

Tuesday, 29 May 2012


I'm going to introduce you to my little creation;


Ever since I can remember I have loved being creative and had a slight obsession with jewellery and  all things crafty, I started making last year and sell over this page or sometimes ebay at the moment. I have done a few fairs and have been very well recieved, giving me confidence to make my dream of owning my own shop come true :)

I would love it if you would have a look around and share it with your friends and family and any feedback would be greatly appreciated! I've had to push my jewellery making to one side lately, what with university being so full on this year but in the next few weeks more stock will be added :)

Introducing... My pooches!


Say hello to Teddy and Magic, or Madge or Margeroo or Margereena (the list goes on...)
These two skinny lovelies are my whole world, I love love love them! Greyhounds are such an overlooked breed but are so amazing as pets! These two are rescued ex-racers but some hounds get badly treated and can be so unloved after they are deemed 'un-race-able'. More people need to give them a good home! They are such loving dogs and are so laid back its untrue, 5 minutes of mad time and its back on their bed to dream away the rest of the day. With my parents recentley moving to Cornwall on their little boat (pictures to come in another post!) I haven't seen them in 2 months, it makes me sad and I miss them so much but seeing and making them roo (greyhound howl) on skype eases my pain for now! 
In 6 weeks time we shall be reunited, I cannot WAIT!

DIY studded shoes

I couldn't resist these when I saw them the other day, the colour is lovely and they are amazingly comfy! However, I recieved some studs in the post yesterday and my creative senses tingled, so, here you go; cheap, plain pumps revamped into these! Amazing what you can do with something simple, can't wait to wear these when the rain clears up!

Disney Party!

Thought I'd share a photo from my friends 21st Disney Party! It was amazing how much effort people put into their costumes, good night too! I very much enjoyed being a wilderness explorer for the night!

Nail art.

                                                  Amazing transfers by JanchristieNailArt (looks just like my pooch!)
                                                       First attempt of Galaxy nails, love them!
                                                       Playing around with designs.

I've become a little bit obsessed with painting my nails as you can see, at the moment one colour just isn't enough! I thought I would share some of my favourites with you. :)
