Time to get H.A.P.P.Y

Lately I have noticed I have been stressing out about way too much, I've been spending so much time worrying about what is not happening that I'm not enjoying the small stuff and letting life do its thing. I've seen the 100 happy days challenge going on over at facebook and so on, but wasn't that sure what it was, so when I was noticed the girls over at a beautiful mess getting involved I figured this was what I could do with (I realise I'm a little late to the party!). I've also not been using instagram much of late and I miss it, so a photo challenge to get happy seems ideal.

So, less of this...


and more of this...

Hearts and Hens


This is, as you all know, the weekend of love, so it was obviously the perfect time to celebrate one of my best friends upcoming wedding. Firstly though I must mention the #sheepishheartbomb that happened on Valentines day itself. Last year I joined the followers of the gorgeous One Sheepish Girl in their quest to cover the world in knitted, crotched and fabric hearts. It was such a success that we did it again this year, and even though a storm was raging I was determined to drop my felted hearts and love notes around Bath. If you found one I hope it made you smile. 


Then came Saturday and the beautiful Akiko's hen day... 
It started in the afternoon with Akiko and us four bridesmaids taking a champagne tea at the Bath Pump Room, with plenty of bubbles, pastries and of course tea. 
Then we met the other girls for a night of cocktails, Thai tapas and sparkles. 


Now it's time to relax and enjoy this rare bit of sunshine xx

Old favourites - new look

Today, as well as working on my new collections, I decided to start updating my online shops for 2014. There are one or two newer pieces added to the shop as well as giving some firm old favourites a little make over.
Over the weekend I managed to pick up some lovely props to use in my photographs, these include old keys, some glass ink wells, pocket watch movements and a beautiful early 19th century book about polar exploration. Here are the results, if you want to see more you can also pop over to my folksy shop here.

Happy to be back

Well, I was finally back in the studio today and what a lovely feeling that was. After the manic end to 2013 and the excesses of Christmas and New Year I took some time out, but being in the studio is where I actually feel I need to be.
I started out by playing with some simple designs but there are already lots of ideas floating around so watch this space for new pieces, including more rings and lockets.
