After A Bank Holiday...

Arr, I do love Bank Holidays! They're like little gifts that the calendar passes to you every now and again!

And this one was quite exciting!
Apart from the mountains of sleep that I caught up on, I spent Saturday making my little octopus (you'll get to meet him soon, don't worry).
Sunday, me, Lewis and my sister went to the Chilterns Craft Show to look at all of the lovely goodies!

I might have spent too much money on flavoured teas and jam, but it was totally worth it!

And of course that leaves us with the wonderful Bank Holiday Monday!
Yep, I slept through nearly most of it!

But I did make some sales this weekend too!
So I woke myself up to re-stock the rings that I'd sold.

I now have a new Red & White Polka Dot Ring and a new Pig Ring.

I've also got a new Halloween ring in my shop if you'd like to take a peak,

I hope all of you enjoyed your calendar gift bank holiday too!

Summer into Autumn

Has it really been that long since my last post?!
It has been rather hectic but, I've got to show you some of the things I've been up to!

Well, it all started off with Summer and what seems to be her last little weeks of sunny goodness.
Of course I was going to take advantage of this.
A little weekend trip to the New Forest to see some friends and a mini pic nick when I got home seemed the best way to enjoy the lovely weather.

It was just fields and fields of purple! It was beautiful! :)
And so relaxing! Have you ever been to a place where as soon as your feet hit the the ground and the fresh air whooshes through your lungs, you just melt into a relaxed bliss? 

 And then for a very long journey home, so I decided to crochet!
(I am still only learning, so it's only a little simple rectangle!)

That feels like ages ago now!
Autumn has pretty much waltzed in, and that means that Halloween is on it's way! And I have some new goodies to celebrate.

I love pumpkins!
My little pumpkin pair's in my shop now too, come along and have a look!

I hope you all have a lovely end of summer, and let's hope we get a few more rays of sunshine!

Well, an adventurous week it's been indeed!

Firstly, guess who came bounding through the door with the rest of my post this week?

She's here! Pegasus from Dana's Wonder Forest
She's so beautiful, I just had to share her with you all.
I think she'll have to stay with me on my work desk, because she's just so darn lovely!

hehe, and so cute!!

I also took a little trip to London (before all of these awful riots!).
First stop had to be Camden Market!
How I love that place. It just pulses with energy and you know that everyone there isn't afraid to be themselves.
I think I got a bit snappy happy! Here's a few,

Hmmm *sigh* I do love how you can get so lost so quickly too. One turn and I'd be done for if I didn't have my sister with me!
Does anyone else find that?
Or is it just my rubbish sense of direction? :)
I love being swallowed up by the excitement and not being quite sure when you're going to be set free again!

And would you believe, we're nearly half way through August!
I've actually started preparing for Halloween (this is very unlike me!)
Take a look at these little guys!

I shall have to see where this little adventure might take me!
I might end up with a whole pumpkin family or a witch attempting to put them in her cauldron!

Hope you're all well, especially all of those affected by the riots

And The Winner Is.....

Thank you all so so much for participating in my very first giveaway!
It was lovely to read all of your kind and encouraging comments.

So the deadline was last night, and me and a little felted friend sat around and wrote all of your names onto separate pieces of paper and put them into a bowl and mixed them up!

I decided to let him pick out the name because he was ever so excited about someone winning the 2 little mice.

And so...


The 2 little mice are yours!
I will be contacting you to find out your delivery details.
