This time I thought I would have the giveaway for I thought what better than these super cute Easter bunny egg warmers?! They are coming in this super cute little Easter basket, decorated in lovely yellow and green spring themed polka dot ribbon. The winner will recieve all 5 bunnies (as pictured), in the basket.

These are not only cute, but would make a great easter gift for a relative! Why not stuff the egg warmers with Cadbury's creme eggs? or other small chocolate eggs... This is such a cute gift idea!

Getting in the Easter mood...

Last week of term in the day job :) It means only one thing....H O L I D A Y S!!!

Ten whole days off the day job! More time for the shop! :) Yay! I am, as usual, going back to the UK for a few days next week, but I will also have a few days off to relax and sew :)

An early Spring Saturday

I woke up early this morning to go to the market and get some fresh flowers, flowers here are much more expensive than in the UK, strangely. So I only ever have them when I'm feeling rich, but the weather has been so lovely and Spring like that I really wanted to invite the Spring inside....and look at these.....would could resist???

My little Bridget Jones style flat is now much more welcoming and homely :)

Tuesday...quite possibly the best day during the week!

I love Tuesday's in my working week. I hvae the morning off from my day job, so it gives me time to do some hand sewing or finish off orders that are looming. Plus, my lessons on Tuesday's are my favourite :) so the day job is quite good on a Tuesday as well!

I've been sewing away lots of little heart brooches for up and coming craft fairs this year, all different colours and patterns, but these Cath Kidston fabric ones are my favourite. They are so pretty and feminine and just scream Spring! :) Lush!

It's less than 2 weeks till the end of last! This term has been VERY, VERY long! I'm looking forward to a few days off work and then a few days back in the UK. Fingers crossed for nice weather here and back home! Happy Tuesday everyone! x

Another busy Saturday...

Saturday is my favourite day of the week, not only because I was born on a Saturday (lol) but because I have time to work on the shop, uninterrupted, no classes to plan..or shock horror...teach. I can sew away. Of course, as with all creative businesses, not all Saturday's I feel inspired, so when a Saturday comes along in which I am inspired and fired up to go, I feel really happy at the end of the end of the day. There is something satisifying about getting a lot of things done. So, this Saturday was one of those days. I cracked on with five doorstop designs, six heart brooches and about fifty friendship bracelets! (I also managed to sneak in a cheeky glass of wine in the sunshine with a friend!) So, all in all, a productive day. With that in mind, I feel no guilt going out today with friends for a picnic in the park (and the gorgeous sunshine here in BCN) to listen to the jazz festival, more drinking wine in the sunshine me thinks! hee hee

Happy Sunday folks...hope you've got sunshine too! x

Spring has sprung!

It is really clear that Spring has sprung here in Barcelona! The sun has been shining strongly all week and it has enough heat in it for you to really feel it warming the skin...mmmmm.

It does make everyone feel so much better. It also allows you to get out and get some fresh air and blow away the cobwebs.

On another positive note...My laptop is back from the Laptop hospital and is so far (fingers crosse working well. It has to go back in for a check up next week and some further work, but I am so pleased to find out I didn't loose anything!!! I am one lucky, lucky girl! From here on in....back up! back up! back up! Everything is going to be backed up and saved to save the stress of loosing anything!!! So word of warning!!!!

Happy Friday all! Hope Friday treats you all well x

Lot´s and lot´s of lovely new stock!

My hands and my imagination have been extremely busy over the past few weeks. I´m not quite sure how I managed to get it all done!!! But none the less...there is a nice lot of new stock FINALLY finished (it´s all been sat for a wee while part-made) and today it got uploaded onto the shop. Although my laptop has still died and shows little sign of resusitation...I have managed to edit my photos on the work´s computer, so they are looking a little better. However, I really do need some time to sit and play with my images...a masterclass is needed!

The shop has been quite quiet this week, although lot´s of views...however with my lovely new stock, I am sure I can pull in the crowds! :)

I can´t believe it´s Thursday already! Where is March running off too???

Poorly Laptop....

My poor laptop has gone to sleep and doesn´t want to wake up :( He has to go to the repair man asap, however a friend lent me their laptop in the meantime, only for their laptop to die 2 days later.....what on earth is wrong with me and laptops??!!!

So I am now using the work computer when I have a spare few minutes and have no way of editing my photos :( So my shop is looking shocking! :(

I hope my little laptop gets sorted out soon! It´s very fustrating not having it!!!!
