A quick Update and Merry Christmas

I havn't managed to post here in a long while. Amelia is quite demanding but hey shes a newborn so thats to be expected. Lewis and myself are loving every min of it..just not night times! We've had lots of family down to see her and lots of lovely presents and cards.

Christmas was great although Lewis had to work the day which sucked. He was back by 3pm tho and then we watched The Incredibles and opened presents. Amelia was spoilt rotten by everyone and we have so many clothes im convinced she will never where them all. Lewis got 2 power drills so we gave one to my dad, and mum got given some very expensive chocolates that I've got my eye on. All in all it was a really nice day but we didn't stay up late. Lewis and myself were in bed by 10.30, not managing to catch the end of ghostbusters but alas was up most of the night with Amelia who decided to play silly buggers with us.

Roll on the new year...

Introducing Amelia Jane Thornhill

I finally gave birth 6 days overdue and boy is she worth it. Lewis and I are both extremely happy and shes our lil pud just in time for christmas. She was born on 8/12/09 at 8.15am weighing 7lbs 15! Shes lost 7ozs when weighed today but midwife said that was natural. In all shes a very content baby and Im glad i went into the labour knowing the least. Lewis said it shocked him how much women go through and how bad he felt having done his "5 mins" yet he couldn't take away any of my pain. He was extreamly supportive and in all its over with now. yay :D

All photos have been uploaded to my flickr account.

4 days over due and counting, Etsy, Ebay, Folksy?

I'm now 4 days over due. Next Friay(11th) at 2.30pm im going into hospital to be induced if she doesn't turn up and im shitting it. I've heard nothing but uncomftable stories and I really wanted a natural birth. So this means i've got till then to try all the wives tales and help move this baby along..

Differant note completely, Im stuck on which site to start selling my stuff and could do with some adivce.

Etsy Popular but I dont like the fact its in dollars only. Are they resonably priced when charging to sell stuff on their site? Never used before

Folksy: the uk version of etsy, not so much coverage and not so much luck with that.

Ebay: Trusty ebay, Will work out more expensive I imagen in the long run. Bummer!

T-2 days, Rhino and Keeping myself busy.

See More here

I've been keeping myself busy in making fun and funky jewellery. If you see anything you like just contact me :) . Its 2 days till Amelia "supposedly" arrives which could mean 2 weeks and im getting frustrated. I just want it over and done with now and her with us. I'd rather be changing stinky nappies at 2am than listening to daddy snore and being uncomftable. That i'm fed up of.

On another note we went into town with some friends for a browse around and Lewis and myself ended up buying an 8 wk old, totally nutcase of a hamster. Hes so cute we named him Rhino from the kids film Bolt. We had all the stuff such as caging, water bottles, bedding, toys etc from previous hamsters that myself and his sister had given us so We only needed to buy some more food and that was it. I gave everything a good sterilize when home and Rhino soon settled into his new home spending ages on his new wheel and hanging upside down.

He bit through his original box on the way home.

We might buy him a bigger house so we can put more toys in there. Just stuff to stimulate him.

Diy Rhinestone Compact Mirror

Im in love with everything bright, cute, kawaii and rhinestone. I decided to rhinestone an old silver compact mirror I had. Not the best but it was the only thing I had to hand that i didn't mind if I screwed up. Do you know how hard it is to find out which glue professionals use? I scoured the internet for ageessss but no one seems to want to give up their secret! I even looked on flickr at professionals work to see how they went about it before I just gave up and dug straight in!
This was my finished outcome which isn't bad for my first attempt.

See morehere

Heres a basic list of materials of what I used and everything is still standing!

- Pva Glue , although Im going to try Gem-Tac Glue next which you can buy through ebay. I heard superglue burns the back of rhinestones? Thoughts?

- Hot Glue Gun for sticking larger gems/bow.

- Mixture of assorted flatback gems and random trinkets.

- An Orange Stick for picking up and placing gems. Tweezers will do but I prefered an orange stick.

The only thing with pva glue is dont apply it so thickly that you can't see how close the rhinestones are together. Once it dries clear, you may notice some rhinestones appear further apart than you first thought!
