There is just no stopping Gabs! Back to school today and she has been moved up to turquoise books, I just had to share that with you all. I hope you have all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the great weather. We have had a lovely time doing all sorts and enjoying the beach. Not done too badly on the chocolate score!!! Have not actually had an egg but have had several of Gabs' mini eggs!!!
I am so looking forward to the  Royal Wedding! All things Union Jack are flying out of my shop, Wedding fever sure is in the air!
Next door to my shop is a fab Balloon shop and the owner Steve cannot keep stock of enough bunting, Union Jack balloons and basically anything red white and blue!! He is so happy!!! I sold the last of my Union Jack paper chains today and cannot get anymore now, it's great that everyone is getting into the spirit. Fin and Gabs are not in the slightest bit interested!!! Come to think of it neither is Will! never mind I will enjoy it no matter what.
These are really popular at the moment in all sorts of colours, I wonder why!!!!

 I love this that Gabs did!

Have a happy evening everyone!

Happy Birthday Gabs!!!

Gabs is seven today!!! Happy Birthday Gabs lovie, we have had a lovely day, so nice I thought I would do a blog.
Sorry I have been absent a while, a lot has been going on what with Wil having his op, lots of orders to do and I have had  a little health scare and did not feel like blogging at all, I am now ok, I need a little op but to cut a long story short, I have never felt happier and feel on top of the world again.

It is unbelievable to think that the Homespun and Vintage Fair is tomorrow! I feel as though I am not prepared as I should be but never the less I have made some one off pieces which I hope will be liked! I am looking forward to seeing all the other peoples work as well, there are some very talented people showing their work and it is so lovely to see.

Gabs is very excited at the thought of the next two days as tomorrow she is going out with Grandma to buy some new clothes!! Lucky Gabs!!! and on Sunday she is having a little tea party with her friends from school at our house, ten friends to be exact!!! We have a Minnie Mouse theme going on as Gabs adores Minnie Mouse and has a fab balloon, pictures will follow after the party.

I am quite excited about a few things going on, one of which is my work being approved to be in a local Gallery and I have my official meeting next week to decide which designs are going to be there.

As it is Easter coming up I have been making some chicken themed items, here are some of them,

I love chickens!! People seem to really want to have things with them on! I made what seemed like so many of the chicken cards in prep for the Fair tomorrow and I sold so many of them today that I don't have many left so will have to do a bit of making tonight!! First though I have to go and watch a bit of Alice in Wonderland with Gabs as she winds down from a hectic day!!

Have a lovely weekend everyone, I will be blog catching up in the next week and am looking forward to reading what you have all been up to!!
