Jam today or jam tomorrow

posted in: Instagram | 0

I’ve been stitching my way through orders and new ideas this week so I’m cheating and posting an oldie today. .
I’ll be expanding the selection of cards I have next week with more food pictures, so if there is a card or print that you’ve been waiting for (ketchup is one I get a lot of requests for) please shout! meanwhile, I asked over on stories if there were any other foods I should make and the resounding response was tea, crisps and curly whirlies so I’ll be getting to them as soon as a can! .
Happy Friday everyone x

Happy Birthday

posted in: Instagram | 0

I realised it was probably about time to add some birthday cards to my card/food collection, so here’s the first. It had (in my head at least!) to be a tin of tomatoes. 🍅 Squashed tomatoes… peeled plum tomatoes … it’s not far off 🤷‍♀️
.
Have a great day (let me know if it’s your birthday – I did try googling what the chances were that it’d be one of my followers’, and my head exploded 🤯!) … and sorry if you’re humming happy birthday to yourself for the rest of the day 🎶

To do list

posted in: Instagram | 0

A little list of things for you to do this morning – it’s small but important! .
I don’t know about you, but I’m still catching up from the school holidays – I’m almost there now, but I often underestimate how long everything will take me … and how many hours I have in the day. It can be a bit disheartening looking at an ever-growing list of things to do, especially if you feel like you’re not reaching the things you really want to get to (which is usually when our good old friend comparison steps in to notice that everyone else seems to be managing it, and you’re getting left behind) but what’s a list without a few fun things added in? A few things that you can cross off straight away (because I know I can’t be the only one who does that!) some really important things, like remembering how amazing you are.
.
Happy Wednesday everyone xxx

Overcoming self doubt

posted in: Instagram | 0

September feels like a time of new beginnings – almost as much as January. There is an autumnal feeling in the air (and the promise of snuggly knits and scarves – yippee!) Most of us are back to school and work, and university will start soon. I don’t know about you, but I always find that after I’ve had a bit of a break from making, I start to worry whether I’ll be able to think of any new ideas, whether my skills will be what they were, whether I can still do it.
.
Of course, once I get started it’s always fine, but isn’t it strange how we have these conversations with ourselves. So if you’re having a bit of a wobble at the moment – whatever your age – this is for you!
.
Have a great day. Emma x
.
(Ps, I’ve been wondering over the summer if you guys would like any more note pictures? I have plenty of ideas – although I’m always happy for suggestions – but I don’t know if you’ve had enough of these already 🤔 as always, there’s a link in my bio if you want to have a look at products available in my shop 😉😘)

I love detailed work, but quick little pieces like this can be so satisfying! This is a personal make for a gift (theres a name under the star) but I definitely plan to make a few more banners – if you’d like one, drop me a line!

Happy Tuesday everyone x

Dance on the grass

Make your own path. Break the rules they they make no sense. Ignore the signs telling you to keep off the grass.

Goodbye August

posted in: Instagram | 0

Hands up if you can’t wait for a bit of routine again 🙋🏼‍♀️
.
August was simultaneously the fastest and slowest month that ever there was. Work-wise, i had grand plans, and while I wasn’t able to check everything off my list, I achieved more than I was expecting – including this little project I was working on. I’m going to keep you guessing for a little while longer yet, as I want to wait until there are products available to buy, but I can tell you that these will be a limited number of originals (5 to be exact!) prints and cards … and something else! Be sure to sign up to my newsletter if you want to be the first to see what I’ve been up to!
.
Happy weekend. And happy September xxx
