What's on the cards?

I've been a little quiet on my Blog for a while because we have been planning a photo shoot, getting ready for Christmas and for the shops and show that we have been invited to be apart of.

We are currently in We Make London Shop in Camden Middle Yard until the end of December.

From the end of November we will also be in the We Make London pop up shop at Kew Gardens, my lovely items will be there until the 4th January.

Then we will have a stall at the O2 Handmade Christmas from 13th-15th December.

I'm currently going through...we have enough stock to the other end of the scale...oh my, we are going to need a lot more stock!

Thames Festival up and coming

I've been super busy as I have been preparing for this weekend and next at the Thames Festival, with We Make London.

I will be selling this weekend from 11am until 9pm by the beautiful Bernie Spain Gardens, last year it had some amazing music, I can't wait to see what is going on this year!

I have been busy making lots of brooches and even some new designs too.

These are very fiddly to make but I was so happy with the results...I now need I photo shoot for these little guys and girls!

I hope to catch you over at the Thames Festival this weekend...if you do find me please come and introduce yourself, I would love to say hi!

A little break was just what was needed

In a very busy July, I took on work at my sons nursery, whilst still trying to fit everything else in. It was time for a break and our trip to Wales was perfectly timed!

After packing 2 to 3 weeks worth of clothes for just a week away, scooters, food and supplies we were ready and on our way to a beautiful house in Saundersfoot.

Many days on the beach

A day spent at Folly Farm - the only place in Wales; with you guessed, Giraffes!

With the odd penguin too!

Where did July go?

Well it was cold, then it was and still is super hot. At the end of June I took on some work at my son's nursery which swallowed my normal creating time. So the house became an explosion of toys and my desk very untidy!

I have been creating some new brooches for Christmas in July, which took a little longer than expected to produce. I forget how long these things take.

The birds are already in my Etsy shop and the dogs will be there very soon. Don't forget there is 10% off everything in my shop with the coupon CIJUK10 - please use it at the check out.

School Fairs

I'm used to having a stall in a market place but as soon as I do a family orientated event I'm a bit lost. I know as a parent, the kids come first and if they are happy we are happy. So with my first school fair, even though I'm in the Designer Makers area, I thought I would try and caterer for the little people.
I have be up late designing and making a few bits that I hope the kids will like and hopefully not just the girls.
Not only have a got lots of design your own heart badges but cars too!
I also have decorate your own garden stakes complete with magic beans! The garden stakes could also double as a book mark, wall decorations or even a magic wand!

I will be at Preston Manor Lower School, this Saturday the 22nd June 11am-2pm
