handmade lovelies

Just a quick post to show you some of the lovely hand crafted goodies I have bought of late!

First up is Cupcakes for Clara. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am with Laura's customer service. I ordered myself some cute post it notes and when doing so noticed the fab paper dolls Laura has created. Thinking they would be an ideal stocking filler for 'Little Miss H', I contacted Laura to see if she could print them a bigger size as Holly's fine motor skills are quite poor, I figured a bigger doll and clothes would be easier for her to manipulate.

My wish was Laura's command and within a week we received these beauties and a little cardboard box for 'Little Miss H' to store them in. Perfect. 
The packaging Laura has devised is brilliant, I love excellent packaging don't you? 
Secondly I ordered a print from my lovely friend Kristy who is endlessly raising money for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. They nursed one of her daughters back to health earlier this year when she suffered a life threatening bowel problem - very scary, trust me. 
The print is so retro and funky I love it! I'm going to frame it and hang it in the kitchen, when the hubs has finally finished painting it of course!! If you'd like a print of your own (it comes in 2 colourways and 2 sizes) just contact Kristy via Twitter or her blog. It'll be the best £10 you spent promise!

We also got this fab zipped pouch for a stocking filler for 'Master M' from the lovely FionaT over on Folksy. Her free motion embroidery of Ninja's and Zombies really should be admired don't you think?? Perfect for my own little Ninja warrior!!
Finally I got surprise mail yesterday when this little lot plopped through the letterbox.
Yes you got it its a package of the yet to be released latest fabric line from Aneela Hoey 'Walk In The Woods', sent to me by Aneela herself. I nearly wet myself.


  1. oooh such pretties!! I love the ninja warrior, that is brilliant! And those strips of walk in the woods look gorgeous too!

  2. Score ninja warrior and wow, what a lovely gift from Aneela!! What a week.
