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.
