Pitter Patter....

As in the sound of little feet or rain if your in the UK!  This week I created this treasury for Crafty Folk Team's Shop of the Week, Made by Eden Grace and I choose Kirsty’s beautiful personalized baby name cloud for the theme.  It's super cute as are all her other creations.  Kirsty uses beautiful bright rainbow colours, her shop is so colourful and as someone who can't sew, well very limited shall we say, I'm in awe of her talents =)

Baby Toy: Rainbow Hanging Plush Bird Toy Rattle 

This is one of my favorite items from her shop =)


Every Thing is Peachy.....

I thought it was time to give you some eye candy =)  Here's a pair of what I like to call vine styled earrings using freshwater pearls and Swarovski crystals.  They are very cute and I've made them in several colours.  So what else have I been up to well I'm currently taking part in Etsy school (might of mentioned that already) and I've bought some new materials, as well as doing some research as I have some lovely ideas =)  But as always I am a mother and family things come first....  To anyone that might be reading this and might be wanting to do something creative but has a lot of demands on their time, I'd say if you can even do a little bit, just for yourself, even if no one else is going to see it or read it, do it! =)

Freshly treasured this morning =)

I created this treasury for Crafty Folk Team's Shop of the Week Polly Purple Horse and I choose Angela's beautiful butterfly card.  I went with the fresh Spring rejuvenation theme and went looking for these beautiful finds.

Happy New Year....

 I know it's February, but it's just the start of the Chinese year of the Horse and for some reason it feels more like the start of the New Year for me too.  It could be longer days and a little more sunshine between the rain clouds, what ever it is I'm starting to get into the swing of things again and the creative ideas are starting to flow.  Hopefully as always there will be some sunshine to take pics!

This is an example of the lovely things Sarah makes, to visit her shop click here!

I'm taking part in a Etsy school program this month to help my shop become even better.   I've been teamed up with a partner, Sarah of In The Bowerbirds Nest and along with other members of British Emporia Team we'll be helping each other out along this journey =)
