Silentttt Nightttt

The mornings are definitely getting colder!! Winter is upon us! I should really stop being lazy and get out of bed but its very dark too! I have had this silly cold all week! I guess I have a good excuse to stay in and wrap presents and watch christmasy films! Next on the list "Love Actually" thats got to be the ultimate christmas film he he!
Well time for me to climb out of my bed and run and pop the heating on!
Have a warm day!

Its nearing the end of November,
My birthday month is coming to an end! :-(
Best birthday date ever! 
I Won't ever forget that! 
Its mad to think I'm 25!
I got my first 
'classic, black stilettos' for my birthday, 
which led my aunt/sister to star at me and say 
"aww our baby's all grown up!" 
He he! 
I just wish I had remembered to buy a lottery ticket! 
I was just too busy shopping!!

I'm looking forward to December and all the fun and madness it will bring! 
Especially the guilt free chocolate 
that we get to open every morning! 
He he!
I really enjoyed the Christmas markets today! 
Apart from the freezing weather!!
I don't think I will ever get use to the cold!
Well good evening to you all

Love Tania xXx

Sunday feeling....

'When she was just a girl 
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach so
She ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of Paradise
Every time she closed her eyes'

winter wonderings

1 Grey sky
lots of raindrops 
1 large bag of maltesers
lots of rom coms
1 blanket
lots of cushions
1 heater on
lots of layers
and one little tear at the end of the movie

Nothing like a cozy winters afternoon 
in front of the tele after a hard day at work! 

Good evening to you

Love Tania xXx

Trick or treat?

So on this cold and wet Saturday evening I decided pop to the shop (in my pjs he he!)
Being Halloween, I was a bit scared of what I might find lurking around the corners! 
But it was ok! 
Nothing a Smurf, Supergirl and Little miss Riding Hood wouldn't be able to help me with!
Sweet Dreams I guess! Lol

Puddles in my shoes


Well the nights are getting darker 
and the air is getting colder!
Its officially winter!
Time for the woolly hat, scarf and gloves 
to come out! 
After a long day at work, 
there's nothing better than climbing into my big Penguin jumper!

Night night
Sweet dreams
Sleep tight

Raindrops keep fallin' on me head...

Good evening
The best advice a work friend gave me was, 
when out in Manchester
 do not go out anywhere without 
carrying a brolly!
I got told this whilst standing at work 
dripping wet 
after having the most amount of rain poured over me ever!! 
Right from the Manchester clouds 
that suddenly appeared from absolutely nowhere 
whilst I was walking to work 
one crisp morning!
I was reminded of this when visiting 
the Manchester Craft and Design Centre
 and seeing Kathryn Edwards artwork 
which included a canvas saying exactly that!! 
Her work is really great 
and very inspiring check her out!

Right come on brolly,
 time for bed! 
We have a big day at work tomorrow 
and it has rained all day, 
so you have had a long day!!
Goodnight all!
Love Tania xXx

As first attempts go....


I made an attempt on making a purse for my little cousin who's leaving for Uni this weekend!! 
As first attempts go I don't think I did too bad a job! The Lillalota ribbon on the back sets it off beautifully! 
Anna you are a beautiful genius! 

To go with the purse I also made this cute, teeny-tiny, wittle keyring too!!

Good luck wittle cousin!!
Party and have fun!!
Oh and work hard he he!

Have a brilliant day everyone!! Come on sun!! Shine your rays through the clouds!!

Waste Not Want Not


It's been way toooo long again!! 
What with moving apartments and working lots, getting to my blog has been rather difficult to say the least!!
as usual I have been busy making things and being in 
my little creative bubble! 

My dear father came up last weekend and was very excited that I had printed out his favourite album cover onto canvas!
I ended up printing it twice as the first one got bent in the printer...
Instead of throwing it away I thought it would made a great little notebook!
So here you go dad!
I love mistakes!!

Lots of birthday wishes


Its a beautiful, rainy evening in the City of Manc Land! 
I am just sitting in my little apartment looking out the window to see the streets paved with umbrellas!
Ooooooo hot chocolate in my big penguin mug with little marshmallows!! Ha ha I'm not 50 honest! 
Feels like winter, feeling all cozy inside, as the drops fall down the window.
Happy Birthday to Saadia, Faaiza and little Olivia! Oh and Mia for Sunday!

Enjoy your evening!

With my soul in my hand...

I woke early with the sunshine and tiptoed into my favourite pair of (rather tatty) shoes.

I headed towards the sea with my soul in my hand, flashing at interesting sights. 
Tears from the blue slowly started to fall down.

I kept on going not knowing what I was going to find.

The sea breeze gave off a chill, but as I placed my hands in my pockets I found a sweet, little, soft heart. I thought I had lost this treasure but it seems that fate had placed it in my palm at the right time.

I nearly lost my heart to the sea!

After a little morning of snaps and silliness I got home safe and sound.

Late mothers day post!

I didn't get a chance to write a post on Mother's Day showing my cards that I made for Sunday! 
I've just been so busy working etc, horrible how life gets in the way! he he! 
I made a lot of cards in the end for all the girls at work.
I am loving vintage at the moment!
I found old books like 'Make do and mend' and old papers and collaged them all together. 
I must have made nearly 30 cards!! 
Loved making cards again!
Mum's card!
Enjoy the sunshine again! 
Hopefully we don't get anymore April showers!!
Love Tania xXx
