Hobby Craft

Adrenaline coursed through my veins with layers of sweat covering my face running down to my nape as I kept my breathing steady, I did push myself harder and faster moving my limbs running on a treadmill. Forty minutes had passed but I was still running like I was chased by an unknown monster ready to grab my hair. I’ve noticed the old man curiously looking at me on when would I ever stop running. If I could see the bubble thought on his head, he must have wondered if I was a damsel in distress. My mind was frantic with thoughts with each pound of my feet on the running machine. The faster I run, the better I felt releasing each negativities in a form of a sharp breath.

Recently, I’m quite enjoying doing things alone with no one with me like the way I used to do before. Seldom will I hang out with friends way back home. Few occasions will I make myself present in any gatherings not unless I do care a lot for those who shall attend. I never bothered to make connections with anyone to be my friend because I was too lazy to build a deeper connection again fearing I might be disappointed at the end with my chosen set of new friends. My old crowd were more than enough for me.

Fast forward to my current world, I’ve met new people to work with in the UK. Some of the personalities matched with mine. Thanks God! Building a bond was like a walk in the park. However, the more I spent time with them, the more clashes of behavior happens. Few instances when disagreements occurred. Got offended with little things.

I won’t retaliate or would even bother to confront them usually. I won’t hurt them back by putting anyone in an embarrassing situation coz that’s not my thing to get even. Let the universe again handle it.

Felt better after an hour of running with a hungry tummy because of exhaustion. While walking to grab some snacks, I found a new store near the gym. It’s called the HOBBYCRAFT located in Kingston Retail Park, Unit 4B, Kingston St, Hull HU1 2TX. Please click the link for their website. Have you ever been here?


I can stay here all day just watching all these crazy cute addictions of mine to crafty stuff. Stickers were part of my collection at home. My toddler had started to mess up with my hidden treasure of stickers. I’ve seen him during one of our video calls sticking my cartoon character stickers on his forehead. (eyes rolled) I’m not certain if there is anything left in my drawer.



For those who wanted to make a personalized journal, they got what you needed to beautify it. I prefer to use a ready made one than creating my own journal. It’s a tedious job for a me because I am the type of person who would write everything on it which would mean I need to get lots of pages to cater all my thoughts. Thanks to Akynfullhouse allowing me to voice out my unspoken opinion about everything.


Have you ever done scrapbooking? I tried setting up one in the Philippines for my Akyn’s monthly progress but never had the chance to start it. I kept my materials though. Who knows I maybe able to do it in the future still.


Letter standee in different sizes and font are here too. My heart is swelling in happiness.



Painting needs to make your letter standee more pleasing to the eyes are also here lovely mommas.


Some boxes and containers to help you get organized. I now have another favorite store in my list.



Here are my shopping haul ladies. Cute colorful organizers for my DIY cut-outs. I want everything in order when it comes to my obsession to crafty projects.


I’m not sure why I bought this.(smirked) Perhaps I love the color combination of every bits and pieces. This came in one package.


I’ve been looking for big needles coz the one I have aren’t sturdy enough for me to use in stitching thick cloth materials. Gladly they got one,too. That red thing beside the needle is a cupid form puncher.


I’m starting to build my sticker collectibles again here in the UK. More to come as I’ll frequently visit the shop.


Goodnight pretty mommas. Thanks for listening to my resentment.
