I’m just popping on to let you know that these marmalade cards have just been added to my website – there’s a link in my bio .

Close thinking

posted in: Instagram 0

Need to do some Close Thinking? Perhaps you need a walk along Action Avenue, or a visit to Idea Street?
.

I’ve listed this little map over on my website (there’s a link in my bio) it’s the same map that is included in my Finding Inspiration picture, and based on a section of Gloucester Road in Bristol (but it’s probably a fairly accurate representation of what it looks like inside my head! 😂) The perfect gift for the creative in your life (I wont mention the C word again quite yet) there is just this one available, so if you’d like it, don’t get distracted and turn down Blind alley!
.
Have a great Friday. Meet you in Time for a cuppa Crescent?

Playing with paint

posted in: Instagram 0

I had great fun splattering fabric paint 🎨 over material, my workshop and all over myself yesterday (sadly it was only once I got home from the school run that I realised I had been sporting a yellow eyebrow 🤪) I wanted to make some maker badges that looked like they were cut from a painters apron – like a maker had made them 😊. There are a few different wording options, which I’ve listed over on my website now.
Have a great day xxx

Makers banner

posted in: Instagram 0

I’m so pleased that my makers banners are getting lots of love, because I really love them too! My main criteria for printing on to fabric was that I really wanted the option of being able to personalise/embellish the final piece, and I’m just loving all the words of wisdom that you’re asking me to sew!
.
There is still another week until half term here, but I’ve already got my next design planned out, so that I can grab any quiet moments to bring it to life 🗺

Celebrate every tiny victory

posted in: Instagram 0

How often do you whizz through life without stepping back to take stock of what you’ve accomplished? How often do you use the word ‘just’ when describing your efforts?
.
My homework for you this week is to celebrate all of the little victories… I’ll start you off, I’m celebrating that I’ve been to the post office every day for the past fortnight (and sending a massive thank you for keeping me busy while I’m at it!) what are you celebrating? Comment below and I’ll give you a big cheer!!
.
Have a great week xxx
.
Ps sorry for the very annoying dog hair on this flag … I’m just calling it Molly’s contribution to the task .. maybe she barked at a cat or something!

Brilliant

It’s the weekend, time to sparkle and shine
.
Apparently cleaning is where it’s at these days, so I‘ve ventured to the next aisle in the supermarket – the packaging is fab there!

Have a great weekend xxx

You got this

posted in: Instagram 0

Nobody told this daisy that it got things wrong, that really a lawn was where it ought to be, for daisies don’t grow on walls… if they had, it’d have taken no notice and carried on looking bright and cheery there anyway. It just found it’s spot and did it’s own thing. And that’s what you should do too.
You’ve got this xxx

You are awesome

posted in: Instagram 0

Thanks for all of the amazing messages and comments yesterday – I’m sending you all a medal for being awesome 🌟🎖
.
My son Oscar was quite taken by the brave medal from my greatest showman set, and asked for one that said awesome with a star on it … he very rarely asks for anything (other than money for computer games😒) and I’m pretty sure that he wasn’t actually expecting me to make it, as it’s now taken pride of place buried under a pile of stuff on his desk (I think perhaps it needs an extra stripe that reads messy 😆) .
if you’re interested in your own bespoke badge, just drop me a line. Have a great Wednesday xx . . .
