...I found this blog, Craftaholics Anonymous, via the Mollie Makes website and it came with some warnings i.e that it would leave you in total awe, would result in blog envy and want to start crafting. So true...
I want to make this:

The creative bug has bitten yet again and I'm on a bit of a creative frenzy - not that i've had much time to make anything. I'm almost finished with a granny square baby blanket I started making back in July. I haven't even finished that and my eyes are on this one by Nicki Trench. I worked out the cost to make it in using the same yarn and I use can't afford it.
Other things that have made my creative juices flowing are two magazines I have come across. The first is Mollie Makes which caught my eye when I was leaving Asda one day.
Each magazine comes with a little gift that you can make. I have yet to make any of mine but am really looking forward to it. I love flipping through the pages and looking at all the pretty pretty things. You can check out their website here. The other is called Making. I just want to make everything that is featured in it too, the origami light shade in particular which can be found in Issue 4. The magazine itself is divided into different sections: Making for Living, for the bathroom, for the kitchen, fort the wardrobe and for the garden. Both are definitely worth having a look at it. You'll find yourself struck with craft envy and a very strong desire to try your hand at crafting.
I thought that being on holiday for the summer would mean that I'd have lots of time to clear up my bedroom, my bookshelves and my cupboard. Who was I kidding? I have no idea where the time has gone but it hasn't gone into clearing anything up. And so imagine my delight at finding this blog called Perfectly Pretty...it's a blog after my own heart. It's all the inspiration I need to get myself organised. Go take a look.
