Booooo paperwork

I am in the middle of collecting all my paperwork together so that I can sort out my tax return. It is incredibly boring and easily my least favourite bit of running a business. So as a little break I decided to edit my holiday pics. Now I am wishing I was back on the beach in Sunset, LA. Look how lovely it is, bet you wish you were there now too.

Well now I have to look forward to our already booked jollies this year, just need to get this workload out of the way first. Booooo paperwork.

Today I opened a new etsy shop to sell handmade supplies and commercial fabrics. I have only listed a few items so far but I am going to fill it with lots of lovely covered buttons, pin cushions and beautiful fabric.

I love fabric and haberdashery which is why I started making things. I studies textiles through out school and onto to university. Because of this I have a massive stock of fabrics which I pick up whenever I see something I like. I have always been a bit of a hoarder but now I decided to use this to my advantage and pass on my love of fabric to others.

You can tell it is my shop I think as everything is quite girly and kitsch. I will be selling some different styles of fabric too which I have picked up on my travels. Keep looking as there will be more coming really soon.

Happy 2009 and hello again

I know I always say that I am going to be blogging more but it is now officially one of my new years resolutions (I have writen them down and everything).

To begin this year I thought I would share a couple of things. Firstly a photo from christmas which was great and a well needed relax. I got some fab presents and was spoilt as always. In this photo you can see two of them, dress from my parents and legwarmers from my sister. I like action shot of my brother is running in the background.

I also have a new online shop which I set up just before Christmas. I will be selling lots of new designs, some of which will be exclusive to that shop. There is already a new size of my simple rose brooch in there which is very large indeed, a definate statement accessory (see below).
