Lets hope the weather is warm, Lucy and James are getting married at St Helen's Church, Burton Joyce and the reception is at The Belfry Hotel in Nottingham.

Our friends Robert & Rebecca were married this Friday just gone and we had a fantastic time celebrating into the early hours.... I made them a gorgeous personalised wedding heart pillow with their names and date of the wedding.... hopefully a gift they will keep forever!!

Busy weekend.....

I have had a lovely weekend... Saturday had a visit to the hair salon... which always makes a girl feel good!

Then a big night out with the girls for my friend Hen party. She gets married at the end of August and I'm really excited! I have done all the personalised Stationery and matching napkins... so a good wedding gift and hopefully some lovely photos for my webiste!

The weather was so hot on Sunday we had a freinds and family day out to Wollaton Park.... pinic blankets... balls games.... kids..... and a little bit of wine! A great day had by all! Also, thank you to a few of my models, Ella, Ellie & Adam... (although I'm not sure Adam enjoyed it as mush as the girls!)

This evening I have placed by first order with Noonoodesigns... beautiful, unique baby gifts and blankets we can personalised.... I'm really excited!!

Denim Bag

I have been busy today making samples for a denim recyling project I am working on... I have made some lovely denim accessories, such a wrist cuffs and a fabulous denim bag from an old pair of jeans and a bag clasp from a cheap, damaged bag bought from Accessorize years ago!

I can't add pics at the moment, as they are going into a booklet I am writing for work.... I will let you know when it is available and it might give you some ideas to use up your old jeans!

MISI website

I have just signed up to the Misi website....

It looks lovely and has quality hand crafted items on there.

For now, I have just the listed the childrens "drawing into cushion", that is a completely unique idea... and so far I haven't seen anyone else doing it!

Lets hope I get some interest!

Weekend to myself!

Phil (the husband!) has gone away on a stag do for the weekend to Newcastle with 25 friends! Does Newcastle know what is going ti hit them!

But, it does mean I've got the house to myself .... I can do as much sewing and internet as I can wish for! So far, I have been in my office / studio since 8.30am !


Think I ma going to visit wedding shops this afternoon and leave my flyers for stationery and napkins.
