My poor neglected blog

Feeling very naughty that I have been neglecting blog land and Pinterest recently!

Its that time again at work when we are starting to get manic with designing the new season, late nights are worked and bags under my eyes are the order of the day (not a good look)
However I have set up my Etsy shop (really need to get my goodies on there)
This week my cards also launched in a local shop and within a day half the stock was sold, so I'm very chuffed about that, need to get them restocked again!

I have also been working on selection of more 2d cards scanning in my textures-here's one below.
Think they will be very cute as mini notelets but must admit I am a 3d addict I love my bows and diamante so will be back to my crafty cards after these.

Right I'm going to go off now and relax in front of a film, I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday break, fingers crossed for sunshine. xxx

Etsy Shop

I have finally set up my Etsy shop!! Wahooo! Nothing in there yet though as i'm still getting to grips with how to sell on there and need to make some goodies.
Does anyone have any advise or for me? How have you got on selling on there?
Any feedback would be great!!

Thanks x

Recent cards

I havent uploaded many new designs recently so here are two I have been working on.
The first was a commission for a client who wanted her friends nick-names on the card-hense wolf and storm!
The second I made for a friends birthday card using the old letters I bought from ebay scanned in as a backdrop and stitching, washi and dried rose petal (for the birds belly!) for detail.

Also I have been making use of all the beautiful flowers growing in my garden to brush up on my flower arranging skills!

Craft Fair Success

Today was the day of the craft fair and it went very well indeed-sold the majority of my cards-all the feather gift tags went to!  10% of all the proceeds raised went to Sands, a stillbirth and neonatal death charity so it was a great day all round!
Thanks to everyone that came along and supported us and well done to those who took part xxx

Stamping all over the place....

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while I have been busy making things for the craft fair on Friday (very exciting!)
I have made a large selection of Button Box Cards, gift tags, and badges.

See above my badges and gift tags. I thought the stamped feather tags could be sent to people as keepsakes for luck, weddings etc.
