What is Making Me Happy... And Inspired!

Do you ever get that itch? The one that you can't quite figure out how to scratch? It's that one you get when bitten by the creative bug. Pesky little scamps they are! ;) The only know cure is to get out there and make stuff!

Here's what is inspiring me to scratch that itch but the deadly enemy procrastination is out in full force attempting to neutralise me :S

... Finish my Sailor Moon Costume!

It might look pretty finished, but those bows are pinned on :P I will be wearing this to Supanova Sydney in June so it will be finished by then. 

This fabric! Look at its pretty-ness! Look at it! A guilty pleasure of mine is watching Adventure Time. Don't the little mermaids remind you of the cartoon style?

Last time I was in Spotlight I saw this fabric but I couldn't afford it at the time. This time round the fabric was on sale for $9.99/m... Sold! I couldn't help myself but buy the strawberry fabric too :3
Except I couldn't find it and it was when I was asking in desperation if it was one of the bolts that needed to go back out on display that a fellow customer pointed out she saw it on the shelves. So I hurried back for my 6th look and finally found it! Wooo! Luckily the other customer knew what fabric I was talking about because the shop assistant didn't! :P

A work friend recently encouraged me to try my hand again at jewellery making, after I was showing her pictures of my crown. She gave me a few of her magazine doubles to help out the inspiration process... And I fell in love with this:

Sorry for a photo lacking visual pizzaz :P

No, not the pin board (which is really awesome BTW) , the rainbow bangle in the corner! It also gave me an excuse to finally put something on my pin board to inspire me. It was looking a little lonely and pathetic with nothing on it. 
As the bangle is all is Swarovski, it's going to be a little pricey and I have to source the bits from the US as I couldn't see them locally. But this is a definite on my list to create! There was also a cute pair of earrings in the same issue, so on the board they went.

I encourage you to visit the seller's Etsy store, Bluebirdss. It is full of rainbow deliciousness,  I can almost not stand it! It is so so hard to pick a favourite :(

For now I should go as my two nephews are coming over for dinner... they are (almost) 5 and 2. I need time to hide the breakables! haha Well, let's hope I have some more progress to show for next time :)
