christmas is coming

This new little kraft moleskine is now available here, the colours in this one are one of my favourites I think! And as Chrsitmas is getting closer I have started on presents, this stack of felt and fabric is hopefully on its way to becoming a gift. : )

New original artworks, leaves and feathers

I’ve been a busy bee lately, my creative head seems to be resurfacing after being filled to bursting with other things, and here are some of the results. The first of a new set of original fabric artworks, no two will ever be the same. I transfer my designs onto soft white denim and then hand stitch with a mix of embroidery cottons, I love the texture and colour that the stitches bring. Each one is approx. A4 in size, and fit the aperture of my 8x10 frame (shown in the pictures).

These two are available here, more on the way very soon. : )

soft stars

The last few soft star decorations will be appearing in my etsy shop soon, these two are there now, click here

The first of some brand new picciolo items, a return of the moleskine!
This handy little moleskine 'volant' cahier notebook has a unique handstitched feather on the front. The feather design has been transfered onto soft white denim, then hand sewn, with the edges slightly frayed to complete the look. This first one is listed here, more colours will be following soon. A perfect stocking filler, no two of these notebooks will be the same and would be a one of a kind present!

It worked!!

The birthday rainbow cake was a success!! I'm so pleased (and relieved). Holly was very excited and cutting it was a bit scary as I had lots of people looking on, but it turned out even better than I had hoped. Phew!! : )
(Gel/paste food colourings are amazing and well worth the money, and edible glitter is too good to resist, as you can see I certainly didn't, the top of the cake was super glittery!!) Well, you are only 9 once!)
