Book Launch

On Thursday it was the Press and Designers party for the pre-launch of the Inspired London book.

We got our own copy of the book to take home and we got to meet so many great designers. I few of us knew each other virtually so it was nice to put a real face behind the product.

The book contains 162 designers from around London, oozing talent and creative skills.

This is Alex from Creating Trouble and myself.
Alex makes beautiful mosaic items, she has a shop on Etsy and is frequently selling her items at various craft markets in the London Area.

I also met up with Jaina from Polka Dot Sundays, whom is currently running more workshops to make her beautiful birds.

Helen from Frances and Francis who makes the most amazing paper flowers - they put mine to shame.

Kalema from Called Beautiful whom makes stationary, cards and organisers, she will be at Old Spitalfields Market on the 10th November and 22nd December.

I also met Valarie from Descerting Chi Chi whom makes exciting jewellery and mixed media.

Valarie is middle right and Alex far right.

With the room packed full of designers it was hard to get to meet everyone but the book shows so many talented designers. You can get your hands on a copy of the book from the 10th November at Old Spitalfields Market.

What to do when the weather is good?

The other weekend we took the boys up to Fryent Country Park (still in London) and there are some amazing views up there, not to mention a great view across Wembley. So for those that thought London was just concrete here is a few photos to prove I'm not making it up.

My boys burning lots of Energy off!

In the woods looking for Mushrooms and Magic things - its a Tree Fu Tom thing
A very large pond where we sat for ages waiting for the ducks to come out of their nest.

If you walk even further into the Country Park there are also horses to be seen too! I think that might be next weekends trip with the boys if the weather is good!
