Hits and Misses

 One draft swatch card...note how I added a colour I don't stock and missed off a colour I do ;o)

 A commissioned 40th birthday card...I love the champagne flute with the bubbles.

I don't like this one as much though.  As this card is on a smaller scale I need to draw a better, smaller glass so I get the same effect as the bigger (A5), commissioned card. 

 Yippeee...coconut oil actually in stock from my supplier so I can get on with the soap making too....

...just after I've finished another tin order :o)

Possible new additions?!

Pencil cases!  What do you think?  I could even make these deeper so they could be used for make-up.

They are lined and padded to give a good, sturdy pencil case.  I may have to make up a batch with some of my vintage fabrics too....oooh, head going into overdrive ;o).

(Two of these were for an order and one has been pilfered by my littliest child).

A Parliament in 'da house!

See...not only do I provide gorgeous eye candy, but I also give a mini lesson too (although I did have to go and look up what you called a group of owls ;o) ).  More card toppers for orders.

Back again... show you these.  Not quite as many as I had originally planned (maybe if I get some spare time) but here's the Christmas cards.  They'll be in the shop by tomorrow :o)


Work in progress - 2 pen pot covers for the tins.

Hopefully this week I shall have the christmas cards in the shop and I'm going to make some personalised tins and some swatch cards so people can choose their own colours...just got to fit it round decorating the newly plastered kitchen and my driving lessons ;o).

Don't forget you get some free soap when you spend over £10 in the shop or with a custom order.

These samples will be available online today, as a free gift when you spend over £10 in the shop.

Trying not to eat this

Cinnamon and almond cold-pressed soap now ready and on the website.

Still sewing a bag order, half-way through the christmas cards, just finished the dinosaur card but want to make a couple of other colourways, making up some soap sample packets......could do with being on my own for a couple of days ;o).

Hope everyone else is busy this weekend.

Ta dah!

The tins have arrived safely so I can show you a piccie.  I loved making these...I found the repetitiveness very calming :o).

It's been a good week actually as I've had my first sale through WowThankYou too.

All done :o)

Thank you all sooo much for the comments on my last post...I really, really appreciate them all..alot.  The tins are finished and ready to be packed into their big box.  I will show you a piccie next week, once they are safely in the hands of Jo.

Next of my list is a bag order embellished with the gorgeous fabric up there. 

After that I have to make a tramp outfit for my Dad, then hopefully I shall get the Christmas cards in the shop!  Fingers crossed it all goes to plan.
