As most of my friends (and hopefully my family :P) know…I do not like pink. That’s not to say I won’t have/wear/touch etc anything pink…it’s just that I prefer not to. I DO wear pink, I even made a pink and lime green dress once (yet to be worn) and one of my favourite vintage dresses is pink and grey. But I’m not a ‘pink person’. I think I mentioned this at the start of the month for ‘colourful’…so I won’t go over board. But even as a baby I wasn’t happy with pink. Trust me to want to challenge the stereotypes…:P

09.10.13 pink 004Anyway! Photo…this was a present I made for my Dad a couple of Fathers’ Days ago. We had a family joke about pigs (I won’t go into detail) and they got called ‘oinks’. So, I made Dad an Oink. Basically it is a multi-pink pompom with felt feet, eyes and ears, with a bit of coloured pipe cleaner for a tail. I think it’s cute 😛 I first made pompom characters in sixth form for a Christmas Fair. I enrolled the help of some friends and we made loads and loads of different coloured and sized pompoms, then I gave most of them faces and feet and a personality! We even made heart shaped ones, with arms, saying ‘Give someone a Hug this Christmas!’. They sold really well! Well, the Business Studies A Level paid off…..:P But I guess, as with every creative skill I take on, I got bored. Then I stopped.

15.10.11 kates teapot 001Then about three years later I start again! I made a teapot for Kate, for example. That was fun. I had an idea, and went with it, and rather liked the results 😛 Might make myself one if I ever have somewhere to put it! But then, since that and the ‘oink’ I’ve not made anymore. Maybe I should go back to it…see how creative I can be (Nisah….how did you make the spotty one?!). Maybe some more creatures, maybe another teapot, a Golden Snitch perhaps! Hmmm ideas, ideas…..:P (Also, just realised that the teapot is predominantly pink as well….interesting!)

I have recently finished my degree in Linguistics, and now living back in Mid Wales facing the real world. I love to travel and take photographs. However, I spend more time making clothes and jewellery, and just generally filling my wardrobe with all the colours of the rainbow!!
