Spring is most definitely springing

My first blog this year! It's about time. This new post is just an excuse to share some pictures from the new spring Erdem collection, and...enthuse a little.
Check out these lovelies....

I love how the detail envelopes the wearer. The motifs are placed in such a way that the embroidery and print seem to be growing up and around the garment. The combination of chiffon, lace, embroidery and layering is a winner I think. The colours are quite yummy too...

My Secret Life

I recently had the brilliant opportunity of joining all the lovely designers at All things Original
The website showcases some really wonderful stuff, from arty things to jewellery and homewares, so it's really worth taking a look.

Here is also a little thing I was asked to write on their blog :)

i found

Newies... Lace, a button collection, and little foxes. These will be ending up in my etsy shop in some form soon...

Giving up my ghastly part-time job

This week is a good week, as I am giving up my ghastly (but previously necessary) part-time job :) So it is celebrations all round! This also means I can spend more time trawling around lots of lovely second hand shops and boutiques, and of course dedicate more time to making things for my new shop that will be opening very soon.

Today is SWELTERING, and i am doodling around indoors pressing letraset onto gift tags (that will later be attached to my buttons and pendants) and then I am hitting the BEACH. Well, the banks of the thames estuary.

In the meantime, here are a few pics from an etsy seller who I think is particularly inspirational and original...Marmod8. Have a look at their shop here. Beautiful.

Blog Feature...

My goodness, it's almost been a month since I last posted...!
Well, a few updates... Several weeks ago I was lucky enough to be chosen at random to be featured on the Creation Collaboration bloghop See the post here. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to answer a few questions about what it is I do, and what I like doing the most...etc. So thanks very much to you Creation Collaboration. And if you are a fellow female designer/maker then join the blog/blog hop to support them please!

I have also been in the process of opening up another online shop :) All details will be revealed very soon.

Meanwhile I will leave you with a pair of gorgeous vintage-y chairs. These, I think, are quite beautiful.

Listing, listing and more listings.

At last my etsy shop is open, and I've been frantically listing things, and tweeting about them at a hundred miles an hour.

I think I've completely under-estimated the power of twitter to promote products and listings. I highly recommend twitter if you have something you want to advertise or tell people about.

Amongst my listings are a silver Mr Owl pendant, and a black and white checkered sequin cocktail ring...

Anyway, in addition to spending ridiculous amounts of time listing, I also spotted an interesting little blog on etsy which is all about the massive Renegade Craft Fair which is held every year in Austin, Texas. Looks like an absolutely brilliant day out. Have a look here
