my room is a mess at the moment, craft projects and too many materials everywhere. too many projects and ideas for my head. i brought the cutest little dice beads yesterday and want to make some earrings with them, but i think that'll have to be a project for another night. halfwritten letters & books beside my dressing table, my favourite scented candles & my mobile phone scarlet (yes, i really do give everything a name) on top of it. alex's flb notebook & dozens of scrapbooking supplies spread out on my bed and on my floor. one day, one day, one day i'll have my own place (when i've finished all my travelling, that is) and it will be a crafting mecca. imagine having room to spread out! what a nice thought. ha.
i placed my order here for raw materials to use to make scented candles and flavoured lipbalms; they should arrive just in time for my days off from work. it was nice to finally decide on what i wanted from there; the temptation to just buy everything (especially the fragrances!) was dreadful. maybe it'll even arrive in time for next weekend. *excitement*
also i really want to learn how to sew bags. i've seen so many fabulous ones on craft pages lately, and i'm such a bag whore, it would be wonderful to design the perfect one and sew it up. custom made, i'm terribly fussy with bags and there are so many wonderful ideas for totes and shoulder bags and purses and... oh. it's all because i was tempted to order kurt halsey's new messenger bag when it was released this month; my current bag isn't the greatest (the design of it is partly to fault for how my camera got stolen when i was in london in october), but i think the kurt bag will be too big. it's a full sized messenger bag, and it looks huge, the size of the bags i used to take to uni. so i started thinking if i could make one that would suit my needs perfectly... and now it's becoming an obsession. another one. just what i needed :P
this week i am going to be good again (since i slipped badly all last week and was terribly distracted the whole time) and only do the things i'm meant to be doing at work. i have ever so much to do at the moment and someone is away (again) so it'll be twice as bad. not looking forward to it at all :( must stay motivated. sigh, but oh that sounds dreadfully boring. i need a full-time crafty job, i think.
