I have been neglecting my blog of late but checking everybody else's! Very busy avoiding housework and making pretty hair accessories nevertheless! And soon sun hats and dresses and so many other things which keep us from having a kitchen table! : )

my creative moment today


Having done not a lot ALL DAY LONG I was happy to curate another Etsy Treasury!
I've had a busy week and felt completely emotionally drained today.Yesterday Louise at bought more stock from me (hair bands, little birds, hearts, tote bags, cards) and ordered other things too, happy me.Next week my cards are off to Harrods with a friend who happens to be Mohammed Al Fayeds chiropractor!!!I've also got them into a local gallery and some have gone to Southwold too.I've got lots of ideas for my photography but really want some new faces...think I might have to start pestering the general public soon.

NEW! Cards in my Etsy Shop

The Fair was disastrous. We had torrential rain and the field/carpark was waterlogged.Sold a bit , but probably a 10th of what would usually sell. Sold 4 cards!!!....oh well! they are hopefully going into a local shop, Vinegar Hill (I say hopefully because I am waiting to hear from them) and I am selling them in my Etsy Shop at wholesale prices.

Little Birds

It has been a hectic week. Most nights i've been up till 4am ,off to bed just as it gets light and the birds are singing.I've averaged 3 hours sleep a night.The charity fair 'Champagne & Shop' is tomorrow and I set up my stall this evening and its looking good, even if I do say so myself.
I'm excited about my new stuff - organic wool filled, hand printed linen birds, tote bags (gorgeous fabrics & appliqued - will put photos up tomorrow), Russian Dolls, baby shoes, tutu's.My cards are ready too and I'm anxious to know how they'll be received. My lovely mum and her friend sat for 4 hours yesterday and put 1000 cards and envelopes into cellophane bags! Most of all i'm excited about the lunch i will be getting, it was so good last year, and one glass of champagne will be fine if I drink it early on. The fair is in a marquee adjoining the most beautiful country house called Burmington Grange (the link does not do it justice, will have to take some pics tomorrow!) anyway I can't believe i'm sitting here writing when I have sewing to do.........ciao for now!

My Princess Rose

If there was a 'Disney Princess Rose' this would be she. Last year I bought her at a local garden centre damaged and in the clearance section. (I always go for the half dead plants, they like me!) LOOK at her now!
