All Things Alice

I have always loved Alice in Wonderland and I am just so excited about Disney’s Alice in Wonderland film.

I have been on the hunt for some Alice goodies:

These are made by Hearts and Skulls (ME) if you would like to purchase these, they come in a pack on 2, which will be picked at random, price £1 per pack (plus £0.80p) Postage Message me at Nicole.ooak@gmail.com otherwise you will be able to buy these from the new OOAK site, which is launching on the 20th March.

I love this Mad Hatter notebook from thegiftshed, it is fabulous and such a good price too!

This amazing photo by Champignons would look great on any fan’s wall.

Make sure your copy of Alice in Wonderland never goes missing with these gorgeous Bookplates. From adorapop

This Cheshire cat by FeltLikeStitchin certainly brightens my day.

I love Alice <3

Wow it has been a while since I blogged, but I'm going to try my best to keep up the blogging now. Anyway you might be wondering what Hearts and Skulls are up to, so here is the lowdown...


You might have heard about it, but me an my good friend TomatoTea are opening a website called OOAK, for more information about OOAK, check out our blog and to see Hearts and Skulls products have a look at our Facebook Page

Map Mania

I have been scouring the charity shops for supplies. It is always great to take something unwanted and make into a fantastic new creation for someone else. I came across these amazing old maps, which we hope to use to create some beauties.

New Stationery

We are working on a new range of stationery for our online OOAK store. This will include funky pens, gift tags, envelopes and note paper. So watch this space.

Loved up

Well Valentines day is on the way, and you can’t ignore the hearts everywhere. Feeling inspired from our last OOAK Valentines blog I set out to make a cute valentines decoration, let me know what you think, it's just a prototype but hope to work on the range for next year

Thank you to everyone who has become a fan of Hearts and Skulls on Facebook we now have over 100 fans.

Crafty Christmas

Hello there,

Not been much of an updater lately... But it's about time I got it together and started Hearts and Skulls properly.

So Lately, I have had somewhat of a crafting drought... making up for it now. My good friend Tomato Tea and I did a Christmas Craft fayre at a school this week. We didn't sell a huge amount but it was good to spread the word.

I thought put table looked quite cool although we didn't have as much room as we would have liked.

I must add some listings and new photos.. Watch this space :D

I have been really busy making lately.

Doing lots of things for our network oOak Tree too http://ooaktree.blogspot.com/, so hopefully things are starting to get off the ground now.

I have found a new love to add to my recycling habit. Mirrors! They are so fun, I had a job to find any so I had to use new mirrors for this project but I am hoping to use 'disused' mirrors for this in the future, it is such fun, I really love it.

I have lots of new photos on my facebook page, so please go and check it out if you have chance http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=47306&id=100000175241179&ref=mf#/pages/Hearts-and-Skulls/94440673357?ref=nf

Speak soon

I'm alive

Hello. I am hopefully back on track with life in general now. Been working flat out for the last few months and finally getting back to reality again. Hmm it is good :D

So to start things off I am having a massive sort out of all my things... I am surrounded by a pile of clothes as we speak. I am also having a sort out of my site and my blog, facebook page etc, so do look out for some new items and pictures of the next week.

Here is one of the pics that my good friend TomatoTea helped me with :D (or not because it isn't working!) check out my facebook page to see the first ones if you like.


Speak soon I hope,

H&S <3>

A Photo Update...


You know I haven't actually put any photos of anything on here yet...

OKay so like I said, I went did a craft fair at Winchester on Sunday. I did this mirror to display

but I didn't have any roo
m in the end....oh well I guess I will just have to keep t for myself :)

So anyway I was quite pleased with how our stalls looked, for a first attempt at a craft fair I thought it wasn
't bad. There are things I would do differently if I did it again, but the best way to learn is to chuck yourself on in there and see how it works out.
I shared my stall with my good friend TomatoTea, the second photo is of her side of the stall, which I thought looked fab.

So All in all it was a great experience, I learnt a lot and met some great people (which I hope to be featuring soon) Nicole Hearts and Skulls <3
