Day 167 - diy pencil case

I found a link to buy one of these on pinterest this morning and after a bit of planning managed to create one in a whizz. It's very cool and practical, it solves the problem I have with rummaging around. Definitely going to make more of these for gifts.

Day 166 - diy notebook

Made a notebook for college with some sections for different subjects and a handy post it holder on the front.
Made from recycled cereal box, a lined refill pad, some old leather, nice fabric and a few bits of card.

Half way break...

Its been a little while since I've posted anything, thats not to say I haven't been creating things, but its been mostly food and as always I eat it before I think about blogging it. Anyway, I am currently on a sort of holiday (still working) before I begin my new hectic life as a student and worker next year, I intend on continuing my project but it will definitely not be daily, possibly not even weekly. I have hit the half way mark in my 365 (though it has taken me almost a year to complete just that much) I will complete it but who knows when...
In the words of Arnie, "I'll be back..."

For now here are some artistic photos and moments from my last week or so...

Day 165 - star biscuits

So simple and yummy, I didn't have a recipe I just made stuff up and it tasted good so here it is. I made them into stars to honour my new found addiction for Pokemon, which somehow I have missed until now...

100g flour 
100g marge
75g light brown sugar
75g oats
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp vanilla essence

Cook at about 160 - 180 for 25 minutes, flipping half way. Sprinkle lightly with sugar when cooling. Yum!

Day 164 - Doodling cats

Now that I have become a fully fledged cat lover I have to make up for some lost time and learn how to draw them. So I started sketching pictures of Tormund from my phone, then used the internet to have a closer look at eyes and paws and poses. After all that I let loose with some ink and had a lot of fun painting my kitty. The end result was pretty yet when I put it on my phone to crop it I had a play with some effects and ended up on a negative version, which I like very much.

Day 163 - carnival masks for kids

At school we were making masks and headdresses for a Brazil inspired carnival. I had a lot of fun making bright feathers and beaks from card and decorating the with chalks and pencils.

Day 161 - headphone decoration

Everyone seems to have the same headphones around here so it was time for me to make mine look a bit didn't. Pretty easy solution using silk threads and a basic knot to add a bit of colour.
