Ok, so I feel I should apologise for the very limited amount of blog posts I have done over the past few months. Its fair to say it has been a bit of a busy, manic and stressful few months, what with one thing and another. But with a new year starting comes new ideas, thoughts and promises. I don't tend to make New Years Resolutions, but this year feels different.
I feel inspired, and creative and have found my love of beautiful fabrics, papers, and all things handmade.
So, this coming year, I am going to pursue that love, and encourage myself to learn new techniques and processes, and document it, along with many other things, in this blog.
I think its important to make time for the things, and the ones, we love, in order for us to grow.
So here's to a fab and enjoyable 2013!
Spent a couple of days in the beautiful city of bath, with its gorgeous architecture and glistening Christmas Market. Unfortunately it coincided with the torrential rain, which put a slight dampner on things!
Still, there was time between the showers to do a bit of retail therapy, sip tea in a cute underground tearoom, and take in the sights and the sounds that Bath has to offer....
Ok, so its been a while, but im back and hoping that this post signals the start of my re-blogging! And to get back into the swing, heres a little compilation of sumptuously scary finds, perfect for Halloween......trick or treat anyone?
So its taken me a while to finally get around to posting this, but here we go.....
My gorgeous new desk arrived a couple of weeks ago and im very, very happy with it.
A second hand dining table, beautifully painted up and distressed by the lovely Emma from Love House to make a great little work space for me.
I also purchased this gorgeous chair (also by Emma) which I love.....
I have spent the last few weeks sorting through all my crafty bits and pieces, tidying up ribbons and re-homing buttons and beads, and getting organised (not sure how long its gonna last!).
From Kilner Jar button storage......
.....to a place for my favourite pin-cushion.
A great purchase from an antique shop.......an oak cutlery sorter re-used for all my threads.
Beautiful mini boxes from Canada, once containing chocolates, now holding quilling tools and brooch backs.
A very handy little tray with cute heart handles, ideal for searching for that perfect button. I found this in a lovely little shop in Chipping Sodbury, near Bristol, called Shabby Chic Interiors.
And finally this fabulously bright and funky fabric storage container. I purchased this from a lovely lady called Pam who has a Folksy shop called Hortensia Designs. She makes some really beautiful pieces so please take a look.
So, all is sorted, tidy, and its place.
I just need to find the time to sit down and make something!
