Marceline Make-up Tutorial

My daughter requested some make-up for her best friends birthday celebrations, they decided that they both would go as Adventure Time characters. At first I thought perfect, easy costume, not much to do... less work for me ;) until I looked at a picture of Marceline the Vampire Queen closely.. ... umm what to do?

Below is the easy step by step guide on how I did her make-up

DIY Lumpy Space Princess backpack

Today was a nice quick craft project basically to stop my daughter nagging me... okay okay the nagging was justified as I brought her this school bag in January and told her I would make it an Adventure Time backpack for her...... 6 months later I still had not done it LOL I don't know why I kept putting it off as it took me no longer than 30 mins to complete :)

Anyhoo below is a picture tutorial on how I created a Lumpy Space Princess backpack.

FREE Married with Children pixel pattern

I have been watching repeats of the cult TV show Married with Children lately... yeah I know I have no life but its awesome and it never seems to get old, still as funny as ever!

I decided I needed to create a little cross stitch pattern for a new project to do and this is the smaller version I came up with. It does not have the detail that I normally like but I thought it was a cute design to share, I love how Peggy Bundy is dreaming of money and Al Bundy is day dreaming of boobs while they are both sitting on their couch haha The words 'LOVE AND MARRIAGE' is from the shows theme song at the start.

You can use this free pixel design on many DIY craft projects, it does not have to be just a stitch project. Have fun and if you decide to make this, please post a picture or post the link below so I can see and share. The pattern is not perfect as I was running out of room for this grid, hence why I have decide to go bigger, so ignore that mistake by me of being so close to edges :) 

I did not do a colour chart as really, as long as you get Peggys hair red, all will be fine... just choose which colours you like ;)

Much love

Animal Onesie Tutorial... kids, teens or adult...

 I was asked for a tutorial on the Jake onseie pj's I made for my daughter a while back. I don't really have enough pictures to do a full tutorial, as for some reason I didn't take photos while doing the head lol probably because I was winging it as I went and didnt plan on doing a tutorial as sometimes I take quick photos to remind me in the future of how to recreate ;)

Anyway here is what I have, hope this helps anyone making a animal or Jake onesie.

3D Crochet pillow art

A few months ago I shared a piece of artwork with you guys for breast cancer awareness, trying to encourage everyone to touch your boobies regularly to check for unusual lumps after I had a scare. The lovely Pamela from Crochet Parfait asked if she could turn the tattoo flash drawing into a 3D crochet piece, of course I said why not :)

Bloglovin & Disqus

After reading all the stories and blog posts last week about Blogger's GFC going into extinction etc I have decided to use my bloglovin account more and transfer my blogger friends over there :)

Even though I don't know if GFC will actually disappear, I thought I might as well make the move now. Personally I think it will just be a new friend connection system to make people use google + more lol but we will see.

It was easier than I thought, I used this LINK and BAM!!! you are instantly following your friends over at BL.... The only problem I am finding is not all are being followed and not everyone is on there :( so maybe check a few of your favourite blogs to see if you are following them.

But I will say I am finding it easier to see everyone's new posts, a lot faster and I am enjoying it more, so that's a good thing!

I will still be using the blogger friend platform as I do like that and I can see who is following me and follow back, that's the only thing I dislike about BL is that you can not see your followers, which is sucky.

Are you on Bloglovin? 
If you are feel free to leave your BL link in the comment section below and I will follow you :)

You can follow me HERE

You can probably see I have also changed my comment section over to DISQUS, I have been thinking about doing it for a while, so I jumped in and just did it lol At the moment all my comments have been deleted but hopefully they said within 24 hours all will be fixed and all old  comments will be showing up :D *fingers crossed*
