Mini pop up workshop shop!

This Saturday, April 25th, I've decided to open up my workshop to share where I create and have a few items for sale also, all handmade, vintage or upcycled
There will be a selection from myself, Daisysyard and The Old Gents Emporium

I'm dedicating a whole area to selling so when I am in my workshop people are able to pop on in and purchase, we are also hoping to hold the pop up shops more often too

Its begun

the school holidays that is!
The last few days have looked like this!
I restocked at My Little Vintage in Earls Barton on the last day of school
We said goodbye to an amazing reception teacher who has taught both of my boys! She will be missed so much and we wished her all the best in her new job
I made her an apple fabric cushion with her name hand embroidered into it
 me and little man lunched! his choice of place was Macdonalds of course
 I held the first craft supplies destash of the year which was amazingly well attended and all the sellers did so well, I baked and they sold out too - phew
The destash are fantastic, especially if someone is just starting out crafting, its a much cheaper way of doing it and I love the haggling! and the swapping of supplies, great fun

The next few days are filled with in house stuff (weather is shocking), easter making fun and a bowling treat for the boys

Watercolour Hearts Galore

I've done it!
I've finally put some watercolours to paper and created a little design that in some peoples eyes might not be perfect but in mine I love it and its very my style!
I've had some A4 prints made and will be selling them at local events and in my Not on the High Street shop online here
I'm working on more designs too

Craft Sanctuary

Last weekend was the monthly craft group, a small group this month as others were off out or poorly
I started my new addiction of creating hexies, to which I came home and continued and now have a jar full!

Vintage Fleur

This week I restocked and shuffled around in Vintage Fleur in Kettering, I also had a cheeky chai latte whilst I was there of course!!
I've also decided to sell the vintage chest of drawers, I love them so much as they were my little shops counter but to make way for better display furniture it needs to go and i've no where to store it
I love it, its certainly different and unique and will make someone very happy I hope once its rehomed!

I cant do it! I cant stop my blog! I like chattering and storing memories too much to say goodbye, even if I am just speaking to myself!
I've reduced the idea of the blog in my head so I see it more as a pleasure than a chore so I feel more focused by sorting this out
and who wouldnt want to see this gorgeous pooch once in a while!!!

about whether to say goodbye!

I love my blog but I'm wondering if its time to say goodbye!
I interact so much on Instagram and Facebook so much I just feel that I'm duplicating what Im putting where!

I have all the best intentions of doing tutorials and more projects but time slips by and then I feel bad for not completing them, but I really truly do have so much going on at the moment that I am looking at reducing it all, to be honest I've made a really good start at reducing the stress intake

I just cant decide, I feel bad for taking a break I feel good for updating! but who am I updating for!!!
