Autumn Clutter City and Winter craft market preparations.

On September 28th, I took part in the Autumn edition of Clutter City, a local craft market held at Norwich Arts Centre. It was a fab day, and I met some lovely people, Including the super-talented Kellee Rich, and Deerly Beloved Bakery, with their tasty cakes.  I took along a fair bit of new stock:Continue reading “Autumn Clutter City and Winter craft market preparations.”

Freelance – A Year In

Just over a year ago, I finally took the plunge and ventured out into the big, scary world of the freelancer. Despite it being something I’d been considering for a while, the security of having a full-time job kept me from taking that initial leap. In spring 2012 however, the recession finally took its tollContinue reading “Freelance – A Year In”

My First Few Craft Fairs

At the beginning of the year, I set out to get involved in a few craft fairs. It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for several years, but although I’ve had bits up on Etsy for a while now, I’ve not got around to taking the plunge into the world of craft markets. ItContinue reading “My First Few Craft Fairs”

It’s been a while!..

Well, It’s really been far too long since I posted in here. So, quick roundup. After a busy end to 2012, working on a craft book, we had a nice, chilled out Christmas.

A quick little Sept/Oct update, and an Instagrammy snapshot of what we’ve been up to in Sept/Oct. It’s been a little while since I posted anything on here.

Whilst I was making it, I thought it would be fun to take a few photos and post up a bit of a tutorial… I took the pictures onContinue reading “Patchwork Cushion Mk.2 – Tutorial(ish)”

Mothers day patchwork

Tonight I’m making my Mum a patchwork cushion for Mothers Day. I’m not a fan of the commercial side of these kinds of holidays, and I know my mum would rather I gave her something that I spent time making and considering. I think it’s a lot more personal, and special to receive something handmade.Continue reading “Mothers day patchwork”

So… this is it…

I have finally entered the world of blogging, inspired by so many interesting blogs. I thought it would be a great idea to make my own, share with people my inspiration, illustrations and showcase my work. I’ll share links about art, design, craft, and growing my own… amongst sneak previews into what i’ve been upContinue reading “So… this is it…”
