Ketchup



Where did I go? Into jewellery-making land, mostly.

The last few weeks have been a very busy blur. I finished off a collection for Primavera and have been working on my silver brooch for the Flowerpress Brooch swap (pictured below). I can't reveal the recipient's identity as yet as it's a secret swap, but pop over to the Flowerpress blog and the swap flickr pool to see more of the beautiful and covetable brooches soon to be sent to all parts of the world.



There has been another secret project round here, of the 'being in print' variety, but I can't let on until the autumn about that one. I'm beyond excited about it.

In other but even more important news, the littlest daughter turned three yesterday. She is just a month younger than this blog. It's hard to believe I began a blog whilst 36 weeks pregnant. What was I thinking?

The last three years has seen this tiny bundle:





...turn into this, tallerbutstillsmallish, funny, giggly little girl who is prone to making up songs and has a liking for pigs.



Finally, if you're in Norfolk tomorrow and fancy a treat pop along to the Pick and Mix Makers' Market in Holt. It's organised by Lisa at Bobo Bun and if the previous three are anything to go by, will be the place to buy both handmade and vintage things this weekend. You can also see Penny and Celia there. It's sure to be serious fun.

I'll be back next week after a small trip to stay in a teeny thatched wendyhouse with the Mr, to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary (a month early).

Dear Emma, I love the pin! I got my kit to make silver things with, now to watch the video that came with it and try to do it! Your daughter is adorable and reminds me of my own 3 year old granddaughter.
Happy Anniversary!!

I love the brooch, so beautifully intricate. And I love three. Three is the bees knees. So creative. So strong. Seems blogs and wee girls are the same!
