Where Women Create Business latest issue

Dropping through my letterbox the latest issue of WWCB and again does not disappoint. I love to read stories of women forging their way in the creative world and I love Patti Hughes article 'Natural Life' how her passion for handmade led her to a successful business.

I know myself and others could never achieve what some of these women have but good to know that there are so many realising their dreams.

Enjoying this beautiful weather, the sun and warmth just makes you feel so good and full of energy. Currently working on ensuring that all my stock is on my website, until I started this task had no idea I had so much made. think my passion for making ran away with my need to stock take and have a full website. Another resolution to make, price, photograph, detail, list in a stock list and post to my website. A plan? will it fail? I do hope not as after this sort out have enough to open a shop!

Enjoy the Springtime

Inspirational Words

Words can mean so much and wanted to create something that was longer lasting than a word spoken in that second. Love linen and these mini pillows are simple yet can mean so much, a little linen pillow of inspiration to help a loved one start a new journey, just one word or a few.

Aspire, Dance, Dream, Laugh, Love, Shine, Sing and Smile, all made in linen fabric and random colours for the wording, a 17 X 8cm small pillow of inspiration.

Mojo Back

Been a while since my last flurry of making, my mojo has been on holiday and left me at home, not sure where it has been hope it was somewhere good. Any way back and with events looming:

Shabby Chic Nail File Holders Large £3.00

Tweetie Bird Brooches or Pins £4.00

May add these to my site later this week, hoping these will be bread and butter items for the next event on the 5th March at the Liss Monthly Market 9am to midday. 

Hope to add some smaller nail file holders next week, waiting for some Tear Away stabiliser, my fault left until I ran out to order. Not to one self order earlier next time!!!!

Have a great week and enjoy this beautiful weather we are having, our harden is looking wonderful with all the spring bulbs, not to mention the Magnolia, I love this tree and perfect just outside the office window. Have to wait a few weeks for the flowering cherry in full bloom outside my sewing room, bliss. Sadly the sun is so bright the colour of the blooms does not show up that well.
