News


A couple of weeks ago I applied to have an online 'table' at Poppytalk's curated Handmade market in March. Late on Monday night I heard I'd been accepted! I'm completely and utterly thrilled! I did a dance when I got the email. If you haven't visited it before, Poppytalk is a design blog that supports the hand-made movement and it's a really good read.











(Not a real link yet - the Mad March Market goes live on Monday 7th)

The deadline for upload of twelve pieces is Friday though. Twelve! By Friday! Eep! Youngest has a croupy cough and slept propped up on me most of the night so I've called super Nanna in her cape to help out a little while I attempt to finish off. Thankfully little one is playing and seems happy but I could do with a nap, if not some matchsticks to prop my peepers open or a Very Large Cappuccino.

On my List Of Things To Make in silver are a mad March hare and a tiny windmill.

Right, better try and get on with it...

Red Bull is good in times of need, I find, but don't tell anyone!
