in other news...

today i stumbled across the most awesome and frankly, genius looking iPhone cover i've ever seen!

as far as i'm concerned it's just further proof that i am DESTINED to own an iPhone, and ideally this cover too!

basically the cover is made with a cross-stitch like grid weave on the back which you can embroider with a pixel style image of your choosing!!! 


a DIY embroidery iPhone cover... actual complete and utter GENIUS!


i can't even begin to tell you how much i need this in my life! true that i don't own an iPhone but i would still LOVE one of these to sew into!


what a clever idea!!!

in fact the site i found it on was full of super duper design ideas, it's a Korean wsbsite that sells the most ingenious little gadgets and gizmos

like the watch diary



(need this as well... asap)

and the 'sprout' book mark



so cute and soooo simple!

the site is called Connect Design and i spent most of this morning on there flicking through all the amazing things they have in the shop!

absolutely brilliant! if anyone owns an iPhone 4 and loves to sew... get one of those covers and send me a snap of the finished design

not much else to report on today, i've been working hard today on a new set of designs for a new project i'm not going to mention... yet!

to be honest though, i'm just HAPPY that i've finally hit 100 followers! 

and i'm excited about the giveaway times, i can't wait to start gathering up more gorgeous goodies from shops here on the island + when i go to Ireland next month

i'm thinking the giveaway will run all month, or at least until i get back from Dublin/Cork/Waterford, that'll give me the chance to get lots more prizes to add to the bundle!

until next time, that's all folks... ★ ◕‿◕ xX


ps - meant to mention, my parents got back from their fortnight away so the house is messy again (bloody parents!) but they did bring me back a HEAP of presents so it's not all bad :)
