handmade stuff and personalish post :)


For these photos please note that I was at that stage of tidying up where it’s worse than it started with, I apologise profusely ;)

DSCN3131DSCN3132 (and the fact my dress is severely wonky, but it’s all good ;) )


This is a mirror I painteddddd :) It reads ‘you’re beautiful in everyway <3 ‘ so when you look in and see yourself you automatically read that :)

I’ve also been making a pom pom scarf (along with my Grampy!) as we saw one in Accessorise for £22 and thought we’d make one to prove a point! And it’s nice and wonky as it’s homemade, just like moi ;) It isn’t fully done or sewn up yet, but  here it is!;


It’s meant to be sort of, autumnal colours? I’m not sure if we succeeded ;)

I didn’t make this but my Chlaybay did for me :) I really want to be able to make pretty things like this!

Seeing as I haven’t posted for so long, I thought i’d do a little one about Christmas, seeing as it is the festive season blah la! 
I do like this time though school wise as everything just lays down a bit and you can just chill and have a nice time ! On the other hand, getting gifts isn’t so fun when you’re a bit brain dead like moiiiiiiii!

AYME party xmas 2010 097

Me, Liam and Jess at the AYME meetup :)



This year we got a real Christmas tree :) It smells so niceee, and we’ve now decorated it so is tres pretty :] It’s red and gold themed with a nice fairy on the top ;)  We dangled left over candy canes on it, nom nom nom!

'that' teacher

The one who you wouldn't be where you are now without.

Or maybe you've only just found them, you always have one.

Getting handwritten post

You wake up after a bad night, and look at the doormat, what do you see bills bills bills, OH what's that - a flyer for a pizza! Oh...another flyer for a pizza - this is getting old ;) So, you look again, and see your name written with an actual biro.

the smell of the ink, maybe a whiff of perfume.

the feeling inside, you know all the effort that's been put into it.

the thought that no other person has a letter identical to yours

Be grateful for them :) and if you don't receive any, send some and you'll be sure to get some back!

If you could compliment yourself right now, what would you say?


replies in answers ~

Running outside in the rain (or if you're feeling daring, a thunderstorm)

Don't lie, everybody does it at some point.

The feeling of having the control over when it rains is awesome ;)

The sound of it gushing on the roof, the feel of it on your skin is just...


Trying your new clothes on as soon as you get in from the shop

This never gets old.

Get in, and strip.

Prepare that kitchen for the private fashion show, give the crowd (your dog) a show of a lifetime.

Itchy tags and creased hems can't dent your mood.

Go for it ;)




They ruled Earth for millions of years.

With brains the size of peanuts.

And tiny, hilarious arms.

The weather is good.

The weather outside is always good. If it is sunny, everyone usually enjoys it, but you can learn to find the positive side of other types of weather as well. If it is raining, the air will be fresh afterwards and all the trees and plants will grow better. If it is cold, you don’t have to sweat and you can wear all the nice winter clothes you have. If it is snowing, you can enjoy how everything around you looks beautiful and white. So you can decide today that the weather is good no matter what.


I think this is such a good way of looking at things, a bit like weather cbt ;) Personally, I like Spring and Autumn the best, as it isn't too hot - yet isn't too cold (I write this wrapped up in my blanky!) Autumn you can crunch and have fun in all the leaves, Spring the trees and flowers are all blooming. I love the crispness of it all. This morning when I opened the door I could see the air from my breath, it gave me a nice feeling inside ;)

Being Jasmines Crafts

Hello everyone,

You might realise that Rosie isn’t writing this post, and if you don’t then you don’t pay much attention. I am definitely not Rosie, I don’t run a blog with a name so friendly and I don’t paint awesome post cards. I realise that I’m sounding like a let down already!

If you’re wondering what I’ve got to do with Rosie, I’ll explain. I’m Jaz and I’m 13, I run where you can see Rosies awesome guest post along with lots of other arty crafty things. I also run a more sarcastic blog Rosie and I are best friends - that explains why we’re posting on each others blogs - she’s probably just as odd and as sarcastic as I am, I reckon it’s one of the reasons we get along so well, Rosie, didn’t tell me which style she’d like me to write from, so I decided both! Which is why the title is BeingJasminesCrafts, instead of just one.

If you havn’t guessed already, I’m very much into arts and crafts. I’m addicted to knitting, a teenage knitter I know, I’ve heard all the jokes that mostly come from Rosie. I like painting leggings, attacking boring clothes with paint and I’m addicted to glitter. And that’s what JasminesCrafts is all about, random creations and knitted projects.

BeingJaz on the other hand, isn’t. In fact it’s got very little to do with photos of hats and scarves I’ve made because I couldn’t face posting photos on two blogs. I hate bloggers photo uploader. I admire Rosie for running a photo based blog, I really do! With the time it takes to upload one photo, I could have made a cup of tea!

So now, in true sugar and buttercup style I’ll leave you with a photo (and shall go make a cup of tea)

Because pie, is important.

Ah looking at yu wid de keen

I think that if I ever have kids and they’re upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have.

One of the reasons i love camping so much in deep in the countryside is that I can see the stars. Shooting stars are lovely too (well meteors, but shooting stars are real also!)

I haven’t really been writing much about me, mainly because i haven’t known what to write and i’ve not really had much motivation. But buy me a constellation to be named after and i’ll be happy and tell you anything you want to know ;)
