Hello! I'm Fern, age 25, crafting addict and proud owner of The Wellington Boot jewellery shop.
I love all things arts and crafts and aim to become competent (at least!) in as many crafts as possible. I also love photography, design, baking, Disney, musicals and travel!
Am currently working on a secret project which will be up-and-running this Autumn :)
I hope you enjoy my blog and thanks for visiting.

If you are going to a Halloween party, it's not too late to glam up your clothes with glow-in-the-dark paint! You could do all kinds of patterns which show up only in the dark - such as full body skeleton outlines, or a devil's tail....go here for details.
I'm a bit (/lot) late to the party with this project but it had to be posted at some point. Look at the pretty colours! I can never resist anything rainbow coloured, and if you can't either, click here for more details on this fun wall art.
Go here for details on printing your own fabric by hand - using squares of hard foam to make the stamp so that you can recreate the look of cross stitch patterns. You could also use this method to create pixellated gaming designs or (my personal favourite) fair isle patterns.
I always love these little umbrellas when you get them in drinks. It's a strange thing to have become the norm really - I wonder if whoever invented them thought they would catch on all over the world? I mean...an umbrella for drinks...it's kind of weird!
I love the idea of dressing as a classic pop culture icon for a fancy dress party, and I especially love the Rosie The Riveter costume (as I like that style anyway). If you'd like more Halloween ideas, click here. It's always more fun to think outside the box :-)
If you are looking for interesting things to do with your hair, make-up and (especially) nails, check out these tutorials at the Beauty Department, plus some seriously creative nail polish designs at Daily Nails :-)
