Christmas gift tags



Inspired by Fishes make wishes tute on these wonderful shabby chic stars I created something similar for my gift tags this year. They are stars, Christmas trees and holly leaves. They are a nice finishing touch for my wrapped presents!

Apron finished Yay!


Really pleased with how it's turned out as there were techniques I'd never used before first time doing any applique and even mastered the crossstitch. It is all hand sewn and going to be a Christmas present for my wonderful mum.

About Yasmin-Elizabeth


I just love making/creating things, end of. The whole joy & satisfaction that comes from handmade and do-it-yourself projects makes me feel happy inside. I particularly love creating mixed-media art work & sewing. Among my other interests are digital design and illustration.

I studied multimedia at Liverpool Community college. During my time there I fell in love with the adobe creative suite especially Illustrator and Photoshop. I learnt so much during those 2 years! Happy times. Following my graduation, I was accepted into Glasgow school of Art to study Visual Communication, which would of led to a degree in design but unfortunately due to domestic commitments I was unable to return to the course after the first year. 

I am currently a stay-at-home mama to my little Jelly tot Malachy, he is 2. We live in Liverpool, England. In the last year I have discovered a great love for sewing and although I still have a lot to learn I would class myself as well and truly addicted. Having a blog to share my creations and to view other peoples makes this an exciting time for me. I have learnt so many techniques by following peoples tutorials and would love to give something back.

1st Blog!

Well hello there, I don't really know what to write or where to begin but I bet nobody ever does. I have been meaning to join the blogging world for so long and here I am! In the past couple of weeks I have felt a great resurgence in doing what I love (all things creative but mostly mixed-media) and have decided my little boy, Malachy (18 months) is now old enough to go to nursery a couple of days a week. While he is in nursery I am going to be very busy building my website, doing illustrations, collages, illo friday, promotion. Here will be where I share it all, I hope you enjoy!
