What have I been making this week?

I was lucky enough to have a school friend ( Find it harder to remember my school days now, lol) contact me last week for a special wedding card for a couple tying the knot on the 11th June, the spec was something cute so hopefully you will like it Melanie, should have got it by now:

Don't you just love CD Roms, so much easier than drawers full of paper and toppers, plus this way DH does not know how much stock I have, lol as a CD is small and can be well hidden.


I just loved this fabric, wish I had bought more but made some door sachets, scented with fresh linen pot pourri, so pretty and perfect for a dog or cat lover.

Petit Bébé

I love silk and thought this fleur-de-lis print was just a perfect start to my Petit Bébé collection
had planned a gift card and tag set but on opening my order found not pearl paper but card, so annoying but will get there in the end just a slight delay in proceedings

Off to plan the makes for next week, in between clearing MIL's flat, running my own business, a home and a husband, being kept busy but they do say: 'Idle hands are the devil's workshop' so keeping busy is a must. Have a happy week creating.

Show and Tell Monday with Make Mine Pink


  1. You made me laugh with your CDs, a bit like me with my hidden stash of what OH would think of as junk but perfect for upcycling crafts!
    Thank you for taking part in Handmade Monday x

  2. Hidden stash... no, I just don't let anyone into the dining room!

    The Petit Bebe collection sounds delightful, bet it will be a best seller

  3. The card is lovely! I am sure the bride and groom will be thrilled when they eventually receive it!

    I love the sound of Petit Bebe and can't wait to see some more from the collection!


  4. Cds always a great space saver shame you cant do the same with fabric thats what i tend to run out of space for I think your friend will love the card too youve had a very creative week xxx

  5. I know what you mean about 'stash'. I'm just praying we don't have anyone wanting to stay for a while, although I'm sure sleeping on piles of fabric would be quite comfortable. You have been so busy this week, lovley makes and I'm sure your baby collection will go down well

  6. The booties are so beautiful, looks like a winner collection.

    The wedding card is so sweet, I know she loved it.

    Love the new sachets and baby line as well.

    Take care and have a great week!

  8. Aww your card is sooooo cute! Why does everything have to be wedding related right now? Or is that my mind just going away with the theme, lol.

    In all fairness I think we all have that hidden stash of "really useful stuff".

  9. The dog and kitty fabric is so cute! And I sympathize with having so much stuff, I always think it would be nice to be able to make it all *disappear* until I need it. ;)

  10. The little sachets are really cute, love the fabric :)

  11. Wonderful show and tell Caroline! Very, very nice!

  14. Got to love the hidden stash. I recently found my husbands hidden box of art supplies left from a level art at school - now part of my hidden stash!
