Well my sister kindly bought this bag for me not long after the birth of my beautiful little girl. I think I was supposed to use it as a nappy bag, but I found it impractical for shopping with as I could hardly fit anything in!
However, I have found that my craft supplies fit ever so neatly into the many pockets. I have a pocket for acrylics, another for sequins, another for my cards and so on. Plus, there is still room for a nappy and wet wipes. It's so handy. And it looks lovely too!
How about you? Do you have a bag that you couldn't live without? Please share your favourite!
Moving home is an emotional time. It's not just the highs and lows of getting the house in the first place, but also the reconnection with forgotten photographs and dusty memories. I've done it my fair share of times and if you get through without tears and lots of wine then I would like some tips!
The feeling of happiness and satisfaction is pretty amazing though when you get all your things in place. And that is definitely worth celebrating.
I have always loved the look of old fashioned type: stamped out heavily and forcefully, with it's irregular effect.
I wanted to be able to create my own sentiments for my cards and so I asked on Facebook to see if anyone would be so kind as to lend a typewriter to me.
As luck would have it my mother-in-law turned up trumps and has loaned me this little beauty!
It's an Olivetti Lettera 25, a make renowned for its quality.
This card is perfect for a new mum as it can be personalised with baby name, weight and date of birth. It also looks great framed and wonderful for a nursery.
I wanted to say how much I like all my customers by giving you 20% of my cards until the 18thJuly. All you have to do is type I ilikeyou at the checkout.
Well the weather has been lovely today and it feels like summer! I keep thinking that this time last year I was waiting to give birth to my little girl.
It's been one crazy roller coaster of a year and the lack of sleep is made up for in love.
This card already has a home to go to but let me know if you would like something similar. Xxx
These are how my cards are gift wrapped. Each one will always be slightly different, just like my cards, but always lovely!
I took this picture on my honeymoon in California. It was the most amazing trip, totally fell in love with the place and want to go back soo much! This photo is of the mountains in Ojai. Pure lushness.
Friends and family really are my inspiration. It is when I create work for people that I know, I feel that images just come to me. It makes me want to do my best work too, so that they know how special they are.
I try to put the same energy into every card I do as it's really important to me that a card 'sings' and has the right energy.
It all starts pretty basic, just getting some colours down. My friend has a thing for orange and turquoise though so I knew I wanted those as foundation colours.
Things are starting to take shape at this stage, but with the new baby called Flora, I simply had to add more flowers!
