Love works in mysterious ways...

It's true, i have been in my university library for at least three hours now, trying to organise a Valentines present for my wonderful boyfriend. If it's not sorted soon, i'm going to have to leave. Whilst waiting i've been searching etsy as usual and i've come across Paper Owl aka Isobel Blake. Here's links to her etsy and her blog.

I love the racoon plate it reminds me of the plates that my friends have been drawing for me!

New Books

Yesterday the three books i'd ordered of amazon arrived! They are all amazing the first is Cath Kidstons Sew!

As you can see, inside free you get all the materials to make your very own Cath Kidston bag (the one on the front of the book). There is also lots of projects inside i am just dying to make. The second book i got is 'Cupcakes from Primrose Bakery'. For those of you who don't know Primrose Bakery is a lovely littl bakery in London who bake and sell amazing cupcakes of all different varieties. I think they even did one of Elton Johns birthday parties!

I can't wait to have a go making the peanut butter cupcakes and the strawberries and cream ones! The third book i got is BBC's - 101 Meals For Two, mmmmm.

Very much like where i got my tea towel this site sell high quality cotton items with a twist. Envelop are an online based platform where illustrators can create aprons, oven gloves, napkins, cushion covers and more. They simply upload their designs and the products are made on demand. Amazing!

Valentine's cards

I've been in search of some really lovely valentines cards this year. I'm sick of the same old boring one's from clitons so i've been on the look out for something really different. These first three are from Egg Press.

The next two are from the Marks and Spencers Range. This is year they are making it easy to personalise the cards. You can write whatever you want on them.

The last three cards are Gemma Correll, hellomemo and Anke Weckmann.

Tea Towel

I'm now thinking, it's too nice to actually be used.

Gingerbread Men Housemates

I got my very own, very sweet gingerbread men making kit for a birthday present from one of my friends and decided to make one for each of my housemates. The likeness is uncanny. They were super tasty too!

Matt Suanders

Recenlty a friend Matt Saunders asked me to work with him on an exhibition. He draw's these really amazing characters and asked if i could recreate them in 3D felt form. Here's a few photo's of his work and the plan for what i was to make. Definitley check out his work by clicking on his name above :)He's doing animation for Jeffrey Brown too, which so far is looking awesome! For those of you who don't know Jeffrey Brown i'll will put up some of his stuff in my next post.

Right so here's my second attempt at the yeti like character, i think he's really sweet, going to try him in a brown colour today with tan stiching.

I have made this simple envelope cushion with the gorgeous french bulldog material i got from Knit and Stitch in Harrogate. I love this material so muchand didnt want to use it all so i used black velvet for the back which is so soft and luxurious! I even added the lovely trimming around the edges.
Like i always say, these photo's are terrible and don't do the cushion justice, i'm really proud of it.

The New Year

So New years Eve was amazing!And here's a couple of photos to proove it, although we're all looking pretty tired by this point.

We're having a record breaking winter and although the snow looks lovely, it's starting to grate on me now. Especially because I left my wellies back home over Christmas and apart from my Doc Martens(that blister my feet) i don't have any suitable shoes, as the snow now comes up past my ankles. I just hope i can get to Sheffield tomorrow! I'm still waiting on a few packages to arrive too, it's crazy how a bit of snow sends the country into chaos!

Talented Friends

As you might of read in previous posts, i've asked friends of mine to each draw whatever they like on plates for me, using pottery paint pens, which in my new house in the new year i will be hanging on the wall. Yesterday i got a little surprise when my good friend Richard came round with this little gem (B) Owl, get it?

Seeing Richards, i think inspired Lucy (Paper Fox, my partner in crime at Fox Bunting) to get her's done. So whilst we had a few guests round last night for a warm up for NYE tonight, Lucy came up with this, which i think is amazing. Seriously!

Happy New Year!
