Choose to shine

Do not dim your light to fit in. Stand tall, take your place, share your light and be happy. Inspire others around you to do the same. Choose to shine.

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

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

More from the biscuit tin

I wouldn’t want you to think that i have any favourites … because actually I love all the biscuits, especially the pretty ones! .
I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for the suggestions for new food packaging pictures; I’ve got quite the list to work through, so there will be lots of new packaging pictures coming soon yay! (And if you’re not a stories viewer, but there’s a packaging picture you think I should make, feel free to leave a comment below 😊)
.
Meanwhile these pin cushions, and as well as custard cream ones – are now available on my website, and the amazing creative fuel plate is from @hollyandcoworkshop .
Happy Friday everyone xx

Look for things no one else catches

posted in: Instagram | 0

Yesterday, whilst playing a game of Articulate, my 6 year old described a comma as “something you need for an expanded noun phrase” Undoubtedly excellent grammatical knowledge, but a slightly telling sign too, of an education system that churns out little exam machines. .
As a child of the 80s, when learning such things wasn’t part of the pedagogy, my knowledge of grammar is limited to the very basics. And so I would probably have described a comma as a full stop with a tail, or something that looks a bit like a tadpole. (But then again, I start sentences with and, so what do I know?)
.
Keep looking. Keep thinking differently. Keeping watching for the things that no one else catches x
