Apologies I've been neglecting my blog again!!


Who are you I hear you cry!!! Yes I am still about honest :0)

I will be 35 weeks pregnant on Thursday which also happens to be my 32nd birthday....eek!
As you can imagine I have been busy getting ready for my baby coming, going to antenatal classes etc.

I have also been busy knitting these 2 chaps above, they are in the process of being tested to become CE safety certified & I have been typing up their knitting patterns. 
You may recall them from a while back. They are 2 monsters from Erica Martyn's The Peepos collection.
For more of her collection click here.

I have also knitted my baby boy a kooky cat, made him a nappy stacker & re-covered our family moses basket which is over 40 years old & has had both my brothers, sisters, myself & my nieces & nephews in it!!
The material for the nappy stacker & moses basket was a gift from the very lovely Helz Cuppleditch



Finally for today I would just like to say thank you to my followers & for their lovely comments. I apologise I don't get around to visit you & comment back like I use to. I will try I promise!!

Big hugs
Helen & Baby Bump!!

Oh, how exciting! I love all the sweet things you have made for your little man. That Moses basket is beautiful. How wonderful to be able to prepare for his arrival with all these precious handmade things.
Blessings on you & your little man and Happy Birthday, dearest. :)

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband πŸ˜†
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…
