I have been making a lot of phone calls along with emailing places today trying to plan locations for my vintage inspired photoshoot I have planned. I did ring the Black Country Museum today which would have been perfect however it costed a little bit too much after adding on petrol cost and time. Owell at least I have a few other places I can look into photographing around such as Ascot Farm and maybe even Ironbridge if I feel it is the right venue. Enough about university work I have been constantly thinking about it all day as I have a shoot planned this saturday and I am just hoping the weather will hold out. *fingers crossed* Time for a break from the uni work by letting you know what I have been up to. I have been trying to crafting into my busy schedule this past weekend and I made at atc for a swap I joined through swapbot.
This is a stamp designed my The Octopode Factory of Dorothy. At first I didn't like it as the yellow brick road and the sky wasn't working plus my white gel pen decided to be a bit of a pain. But I keep looking at it and have been given a few compliments about it and I am falling in love with it! It makes me want to watch the film again as well. About 4 years ago I used to have a pair of red sparkly shoes they I constantly wore to secondary school and the amount of times I got called Dorothy because of them. It was heartbreaking to throw them in the bin.
This weekend as well has had a few more birthday surprises to. They just keep coming and it is now May! Anyway from my housemates I got a book on how to make some cakepops which I will be attempting in the next fortnight. It has to be done and I will remember to blog about them.
I also received some silicon heart shaped cupcake moulds and some lolly sticks for the cakepops. When I visited my mates house on Saturday I also received a couple more gifts which was this lovely box in which I need to find somewere for in my uni room as I am running out of space. I also received a lovely ceramic thermal mug saying my favourite saying and the title of my final photographic work 'Keep Calm and Carry On'
Have you ever received presents a couple of weeks after your brithday? I must admit I loved it personally.
