Adam Ant rocks!!

wow can you believe ive not posted since Aug!!!
sadly this post is just a quicky too. im at uni untill next week and have had assignments coming out my ears which is why there has been an absence in blog posts. ive also been recording some dance tracks for Exclusive recordings!!, the latest being shine on you diamond. have a listen :)  .. i think  it is such a feel good tune, bias tho i am!!

any how back to my knitting.....
Its frustrating for me as i love knitting and due to lack of time and my own resistence to working to a time scale i only take orders that dont mind waiting a month or two for the final item. it does mean i turn orders away as i feel committed...however im thinking of having a waiting list and letting people know if & when im free to start there order if its still sure other crafter's must have a similar issue with hobbie time!!

i have knitted a few items tho and thought id share them with you all... it seems im getting quite a collection. i must say Adam Ant has made it big on @twitter, wouldnt it be fab if he went viral!!

So Adam has gone to his new owner...he shall be missed :) he stood 18inches so was quite some work but i enjoyed knitting him.
i also knitted some farm animals and a pirate and a baby as you can see there quite a disfunctional bunch!

well i hope to be blogging again soon, remember you can find me on fb crafty'z corner or on twitter @singblogger.@singblogger.

  if i dont get a chance before Christmas i shall wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year xxx

Brela Beach & Little Red Riding hood!

Well two posts in as many days!!! what is going on in the land of Button Wilde i hear you cry!!

Well this is only a small post just to share a few things with you... firstly, I'm fortunate enough to be married to the lovely Jinian Wilde who has been in the music industry for years....anyhow, we run a small friendly Recording Studio called Wilde Rose Studio  and we have been working on a few dance tracks for Exclusive Recordings  I'm a great fan of Dance & Trance (esp uplifting tunes) so I've really enjoyed putting some words together and singing away in the Vocal Booth.

One of the songs "High Rollers feat. Marina Wilde - Brela Beach" (can be heard here>>>You Tube) has just been released on i Tunes, so why not pop over and have a listen i Tunes ... there are 4 different mixes, my personal favorite has to be the extended mix  or the progressive trance remix by Italian duo Gabriel Tonce & Marco M.... So if you like Dance then click the link and SHARE  :D

I've also been a busy bee with my Knitting Needles....I've made the most adorable Little Red Riding hood ever- although she isn't very Little and has a face like she has just murdered the Big Bad Wolf... but still i adore her, what do you think of her??

Right folks i will now get back to my knitting and singing and I look forward to writing my next Blog Post....thanks for all your support & feed back its great hearing from you.

Remember you can see more of what i do on facebook @ Crafty'z Corner & Twitter @Sing Blogger  pop by and say Hi ;)

Mixed Bag Of Nuts!

Well its been a while since i last Blogged, so much has happened i dont know where to start!!

I must say ive been making the most of the time off uni. Ive visited my  childhood friend in Lancaster I try to see her and her family once a year. we are very lucky because we can go ages without seeing each other yet as soon as were together its just like we see each other all the time! i must admite i still find it hard to say goodbye to her and her boys....somethings just dont change.

 Ive been singing in WRS wilde rose studio which has been great fun, my Husband and i have been busy working on some dance tracks, its all good fun!
So what else have i been up to?......Well i celebrated my Birthday & Wedding anniversary (both on the same day) , i spent time with my family and was spoilt amoungs one of the gifts i received was a Blog post from my third daughter Demi why not pop over and have a read of her Blog Dreaming Dreams and if you enjoy it click the FOLLOW button :) its also my Nieces Birthday soon so i have made her a Topsy Turvy Dolly.

 I have also been making a few bits such as ......... A rather cute Apple cozy ;)

 A beautiful Baby booties...almost enough to make me broody!!
 A Knitted bag to put some smelly's in..since our wardrobe has decided to small like something has died in there....yuk!
 I also made a couple of wine bottle cosy's....they were so easy. i really enjoyed making these.
 As you can see i made a new pal for Rabbit........

Johnathan Pigeon
....................................And a new friend for Budgie

And a new friend for Johnathan pigeon.

I also made a few phone covers and a cute mini Converse....great for putting on a key ring or in the car :)

On top of all that we now have a new addition to the fold.......His name is "Puss" when he first came to us he was like a feral cat at times....he didn't want to be touched much unless it was to play rough but the last few weeks he has really calmed down and often comes up for a cuddle, i do think he is a bit of a psychopath still. I  don't think he can resist hunting anything that has momentum....don't let that cute look fool you into a sense of safety!!

 I was also out on a bargain hunt last week and was fortunate enough to spot a beautiful tea set (although its a coffee pot), its a set by  "Royal Albert" called "Lavender Rose". I originally got it thinking i could sell it on and maybe make a bit of cash on it....however it has stolen my heart and i am sooo reluctant to sell it on.
Lavender Rose

 By the looks of it i'm starting a collection of tea sets as i already own a 12 piece set called "Primrose".

Anyway enough of that i need to get back to my next knitting projects which consists of a knitted brain ;) and "Little Red Ridding Hood". I hope you've enjoyed this post & all i've rambled on about and i look forward to writing the next Blog soon. Oh and lastly i have been using my face book page again so feel free to join us on facebook at Crafty'z corner .

Come to good & Camper vans

 ********Knitted camper van competition********

well its been a while since i wrote a post and in that time i have had a fall out with knitting, then made up with knitting...I've traveled to Cornwall in a motor home, stayed on a farm for a long weekend. It was a lovely place called "come to good" and waking up next to a field of sheep and glorious sun was my idea of heaven :).

The motor home was really lovely too although we did struggle for space as the were four of us in it at time...i almost had a neurological melt down on a few occasions!

 however, it was a nice experience. we had fresh eggs for breakfast each morning & spent our time touring the land, come the evening my husband Jinian wilde, played his flutes and guitar as i was all rather lovely! Although i had to sleep like a Concertina, as the bed was made for dwarfs...... or double jointed folk, of which i am nether!

The previous weekend i spent in a convent in Suffolk, it was basic and quite and although i was with my colleagues, i felt a million miles away from the world....still, i gained some stillness from it and the food was was after this over indulgent trip that i decided that i was going to become a gainer of slimness so of i went to a well know club and committed myself to a eating plan moment! So one week in, i feel great, im focused and determined to lose this weight and ....drum roll please....I'm 3 1/2 lb lighter...bring on next week i say :) Its time i began to love my body again and this is the 1st step.
