Did someone say Christmas???????

No? really no one said.....CHRISTMAS?! Why ever not, well I have, look see I said it, in-fact I have been saying it for a while now and I will continue to do so until? January maybe?

So as the big day is approaching super fast I have been sewing up a Christmas frenzy in preparation, and because I have been in the Christmas mood since about September  I am having a Christmas extravaganza this Saturday the 7th November at 7.30pm ( UK)in my Etsy store 

And here my lovely lot is a taster of what will be on offer......(plus many more I haven't quite finished yet)

How to keep up with a blog?

I would love to know how all you bloggers keep up with this? I had made a promise to myself and you I think? to blog weekly in fact sometimes even more than once a week. It appears to actually of been over four weeks since my last blog and this is not because I haven't been busy, I have in fact  been so busy that blogging has not happened! So ultimately its not my fault, right?

So what have I been doing then that has kept me too busy to write a blog or two?....... well I have been working on a collection for an exciting Exhibition at the prestigious Walford Mill.....

I have also been sewing away a christmas collection that will be for sale on Etsy on the 7th of November....

I also made a limited edition of 6 Queen of hearts Christmas decorations

so there you go.... until next time ( hopefully not 4 weeks)

Nourish 2015

We are back from our adventures in Devon this weekend. It was a super speedy trip but we still managed to have some sunshine, see some beautiful views, eat an actual meal together that did not gluten me and meet a lot of lovely new faces at Nourish Festival.

and my stall did not fall done over night which was a relief ...

All in all it was a lovely day in Devon, some creatures are off to new homes in the Devon countryside and now its time for the festive makes to begin!

Once my son has had his first day at school tomorrow???!!!!! crying mum at gates a go go.

3 and a bit days and then.........

That's right, somehow its September already and that means Nourish Festival!!!! 

Im pretty excited about this as it will be my first trip to Bovey Tracey and I get to exhibit my creations there. And I might almost be ready which is very unlike me although I am sure I will have a last minute panic and decide to make something extra at the very last minute.
Here is a small selection of what I will be selling on Saturday.....

For those of you that can get to Devon on Saturday I look forward to seeing you there, and for those of you who can't I have flash sale over in my Etsy store plus a few Christmas

So something for everyone!!

I hope to meet some of you in person on Saturday xxx

The Pox happened

I was being very productive and sticking to my '1 blog a week' rule until.... a tiny blister appeared on my sons neck, it was very small but then it had a blister friend, and then another and another and another and then it brought with it a god awful temperature and a very bad mood and tadahhh the Chicken Pox had arrived which = no play school for the poorly bear and no work for mummy.
In-fact it meant not much of anything except lego building, film watching, hugging, trying not to get cross when sleep was taken away from me and a trip the Drs. Oh and a stinky cold for me!
My review of the Chicken Pox is that it sucks and it has the worst possible timing considering I have Nourish Festival in 2 weeks and as always I am running behind ( I have the worst time management skills, in fact Time keeping in general is a major issue for me).

Anyway I did in-between manage some work and the little monster is all better now and back at play school for the next week until he starts real School!!! But that's a whole other blog topic right there...

Nourish festival 2015

You know that feeling when you look at a calander and you realise that it isn't July anymore? In-fact its August the 5th to be precise and that happens to be exactly 1 month until you have a huge event to be ready for???

Yeah well that happened today. Obviously I dealt with this in a calm and relaxed fashion and did not go into a mad PANIC!!! Ok I did panic a little, well more than a little.....

You see on the 5th September I am going to be at the rather prestigious Bovey Tracey selling my hand made creatures at the Nourish Festival, exciting right?! Yes exciting ,but also this means I better stop day dreaming about what I would like to make and actually get on with it.

So today in warp speed I started making 2 birds who will , by tomorrow ( hopefully) be beautifully displayed in a gorgeous glass box frame, I can't actually show you these yet as they are not ready and I was too busy sewing and panicking to take any photos.

But look I have begun sewing, and I have updated my Etsy store for those of you who can't wait till the 5th September or who live to far so I have done pretty well for a day. And I am blogging whilst cooking dinner and watching 'The Great British Bake Off' so multi tasking ahoy!

I suggest you all have a look at a calender and then go have a look at The Nourish 2015 site and come along and say hello, that would be nice.
