So I haven’t posted on my blog in a while as it has been a very busy few months, but after reading a few other blogs and watching some vlogs I am all motivated again! I can not wait to get back into it. Instead of setting a schedule and trying stick to it, like I have previously, I am just going to write and post when I feel I have something to share with you all, whether that be something crafty or something a little different.
As I have been away for a while I thought I would start by giving you all a little update on what has been going on:
Boola Made – I have been so busy with all of the Boola Made orders and have loved making every single Boola Bear, Bunny, Lion and Quilt. I have even started to make little Mini Boola Bears and have been lucky enough to make these three for a very special family.
I have also started to make fleece lined blankets. I found this gorgeous Peter Rabbit fabric from my local sewing shop ‘Crafty Sew & So’ in Leicester. I was asked to make a blanket with this fabric by a regular customer and I have made three more since. Each of the blankets have been made to order and I am on the hunt for the next beautiful fabric to use!

Architecture – I have enrolled onto my part 3 Architecture course which I am starting on Monday! I am so determined to work hard and finally complete the course. Fingers crossed this time next year I will be a fully qualified Architect. I will be attending the course with two other girls from my work, so at least we can all help each other – BRING IT ON!
House – So there is some big news in the life of Boola! Me and my other half Ryan have bought our first house! After a year of saving and looking for our perfect little starter home we have finally signed the contracts and will be moving into our home in December. I can not wait to make it ours and I am already searching Pintrest for lots of decor ideas.
Exercise – I have started running with the ‘Couch to 5k’ app with my family – How long it will last who knows – but I am giving it a go. It makes me feel so good when I exercise but struggle to keep motivated – so we will see! If you have read my new years resolutions post you will know that I have already tried this running malarky, but running in a group will hopefully keep me on track.
Other Projects – Making the Boola made products keeps me very busy but I love to work on my own little projects. I will be blogging about each of the projects as I complete them. So what am I working on at the moment? A Crochet Granny Square Blanket, Stitch and Story knitted booties, mittens and hat as well as a tartan skirt (nope I still haven’t finished it yet!). Although it is probably best to start and finish one project at a time, I find that having lots of projects on the go gives me a chance to swap when I need a change and I can use lots of different skills.
Completed projects – I have completed two dresses since my last post. One which I made for a family wedding and the second I made for my holiday (or holibobs as I call it). I will of course also be blogging about them both!
If you follow me on Instagram @boolamade you may have already seen sneak peaks of all the project above.
So theres a little update on what I have been up to! Keep your eyes peeled for the next post!
