Very happy with my ribbon pics!

So here we are as promised..... after many hours, various poses and a multitude or props I have taken hundreds and hundreds of new ribbon pictures. Phew! They're delightful and wonderful little creatures but impossible to take a great picture of. Well for me anyway!!

However I am very happy with new my pics and feel confident enough to list them in my Etsy shop-

Here we go-

Ta! Dah!!

Polka Dot Grosgrain for all craft lovers

Pinks and Greens to brighten up your day!

Delicate horizontal stripes for scrapbooking and card making, me thinks?

I am currently selling them in 1metre pieces just because I want to see how well they sell, but I promise to  list them in larger quantities soon. We all know I keep my promises!!!!

Please get in touch if you would like any more fantastic ribbon info or want a bigger quantity. More ribbons on the way! What? Oh Yes....this is NOT the end my friend!

I Heart Shell Buttons!

I've managed to source a collection of super cute shell buttons to add to my shop on Etsy.

Take a look at the loveliness of this teeny fish buttons.......I lurve them!

Let me see more!!!

I have named this collection the Bikini Bottom Mix.......I'm sorry there are no SpongeBob yellow looking shell buttons in this teeny mix. Its half term next week and that means one of a number of things will be going on in my house, SpongeBob will definitely be on in the background!! So I think that's why I have given them this name.

In this mix we have Oblong Shell Buttons, Pinky/Red Round Shell Buttons, Blue Round Sea Shell Buttons, Burnt Orange Round Sea Shell Buttons, Fuschia Pink Round Sea Shell Buttons, Ruby Red Round Sea Shell Buttons, Square Smoke Agoya Shell Buttons

My shell buttons are in a limited supply at this precise moment so I will only be selling them at (I will hopefully list them on Folksy eventually.)

I am selling them in little lovely bags of 35 thats 5 of each variety

The oblong ones are my favourite- they are tiny wonders of the sea and oh so pretty!

Let me know what you think? I do endeavour to supply bigger quantities of these beauties.

I'm in love with funky pinwheels

Oh yes I am and here's why-

Not only are they bright, cheerful and pretty they are also highly functional and I find them useful when sewing a number of pieces of fabric together. My super creative friend turns them into buttonhole decorations for weddings. Personally I love their syrupy colours- I have a passion for the kitsch!

Today these funky feathers are my favourite and NEW in my Etsy Shop

If you feel it's too much hassle to be shopping in US Dollars then help is here my friend- I've recently opened a British based online store at Creative Stores. It is filled with oodles of talent and creative artisans and worth a sneaky peek!

Yes it's's official...I've decided that I'm not very good at updating my blog!

But I haven't been idly lolling around. Oh no! I've been SEWING.......well what else would I be up to.

To be honest I didn't really want my next post to be another showcase of stuff that has kept me out of super mischief, but I'm afraid I haven't been doing anything else. So here's a taste-

I've also starting making sewing/knitting bags to hold in all your crafty goodies!

Super stylish me thinks!

Watch this space for  fab buttons and delicious ribbons coming very soon.....WOO! HOO!
