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.

Courage is the key

posted in: Instagram | 0

Courage has many different guises; it might mean standing up in a room full of people to talk, speaking out for something you believe in, or following your heart. It can be a large gesture or something seemingly small. It could mean getting out of bed in the morning.
If you’re facing a situation where you feel like you need a little bit more courage, this is the perfect reminder to pin on your coat. I’ve uploaded this and the believe key to my website. I also know that life can need many keys ( it’s been half term for my kids this week, and patience is the main one I have needed!) so do get in touch if you’d like a key with a different word.
Have a great weekend.

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 🎶

World positivity day – Positive pennants

posted in: Instagram | 0

It’s World Positivity Day – Yay!
.
To celebrate, @wearescamp have created a #positivelyinspiring15 insta challenge. I’m not amazing at photo challenges, but as I love the idea of posting thoughtful and inspiring words or pictures anyway, I’m going to try my hardest to join in!
.
When I was making bigger (but small!) flags the other day, I kept thinking how cute it’d be to make really tiny ones as badges. I’ve been road testing them this week, as I’ve made some with and some without the little flag sticks – my fear is that the sticks will be super annoying and catch on everything … that doesn’t seem to be the case for me, but I haven’t done the kid test yet (dog tests went well, although the subject was not very Co-operative to photograph) if you have any better ideas of what I could use instead – please do say. I love the idea of meeting a friend or passing someone in the street and giving them a little cheer without even realising you’re doing it! What do you think?
.
Hoping you all have a happy, positive World Positivity day xx

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
