Handmade Christmas Pledge Update - Some Goodies on Madeit

So today's post is all things i would love to get for Christmas. Over this last week I have also order this great card for my sons teacher.

I order this great Notebook for someone special, it's covered in vintage flocked wall paper.

And these great gift tags. 

Now some wonderful goodies from Madeit 

I fell in love with this print as soon as I saw only a small part of it. It's so beautiful. All of Alex's prints are so amazing.

This crochet necklace is amazing and so cool.

I love this tree, the tray underneath would be so great to place heavier things like bracelets. 

I love the idea of a stack ring and this set is just so beautiful. 

I love this print, I can remember by brother and I getting each other with tea towels. It would look so great in the Kitchen.

My son finally got around to updating his blog so stop by and see his great new goodies.

Handmade Christmas Pledge Update - Slack Old Me & Calendars

Well havent I been slack. I did so well during Blogtoberfest then you must be thinking that I fell off the face of the earth, lol. I've been working on a big project that I will share with you all shortly. I have also been doing some Christmas shopping.

Along with the Film v Bullet Backpack in my Teen Boys post, I also picked up this great Vintage US Air Force Belt Buckle for my son.

This really cool pocket for my son to use as a pencil case at High School. It's made from bike tubes.

I was very tempted to buy one of these for myself, I ordered this great headband for someone special.
 From Colour Bazaar 

Everyone need a good calendar every year (I have 3 up in my house atm) so here a couple of my favs.

I love this Great Outdoors Letterpress Calendar, for some reason it reminds me of Canada.

Wouldn't this calendar be great beside the home phone. I love the retro style.

This printable calendar, would be perfect for when I'm doing my budget. It would give me something nice to look at while I'm doing such a dreaded thing, and it would be such a help.

This calendar would look like a work of art on your wall. It's on my wish list.

I'm over my slacking now and will be back to blogging everyday.

Handmade Christmas Pledge Update - Teen Boys

So the other night I was having a bit of a melt down over the fact that it  really hard to buy presents for a child that is going to be starting high school because it is quite normal that kids change after they start, it can be even harder if you are looking for handmade. You don't want to be buying something that only use for a short time. So after chatting Dannielle from With2ns on twitter I went on a big search and I think I have found a great bunch of goodies that my son's going to love.

As soon as I saw this beanie I knew that I had to get it, Dion is off to Japan in March to Snowboard, so this will be perfect.

What great artwork this would be for a boys room.

If I had a penny for the amount of times my son has said this to me, I wouldn't be very rich but I could buy myself something really nice. hahaha

What a great use of broken skateboards. 

Maybe this clock will help him get to school on time, lol. Who am I kidding, but it does look great.

Got to have a great bag to start high school with. 

Boys and cars what more do I have to says. 

So tomorrow I will share with you all how I work out my Christmas presents etc.

New Goodies

Today I finally got around to lists my new Artist Pencils Roll. It has enough slots to hold 24 pencils and a spare for a paint brush or a lead pencil. Perfect for art on the go. So far I have listed them on my Madeit Shop and hopefully I will have them up to my other shops shortly.

They are also available in these fabrics. 

Also Clue 6 is available from the Bernat Blog so stop by to follow along.
