I'm having a big Clear Out / SALE over at BigFish.
I'm generally having a big DUMP in my life in general :)))
I am clearing out old shop stock - old clothes - old kitchenalia - old books n boots - old feelings - old emotions - old paperwork....
i am finding the space to breathe!! and it feels so good.
 For example HERE is a bargain pack of 100 mini felt balls
Reduced from £18 to £10
 LOADS of ribbons n trims are reduced to £1 - even these ribbon reels that i am about to upload... £1 each. Madness. AND FREESHIP <<< use this code for today only then it's postage paying as usual.
 NeedleBooks already selling out but this pretty design has quite a few left at such a low price for an original handcrafted design:
I Kid you not. It's all been very emotional of late!
No wonder... i am freeing myself of so many old things. I am bound to be feeling vulnerable.
But also SUPER excited!
ALL this is happening to make way for entirely new adventures.
I'm not 'giving up' i just want some new things for myself and my life is being lived very different right now. And i am very happy about it.
So, if you need any bargains, please go bag some.
If you don't - then tell a crafty friend? i would really appreciate that.

LIVING on tea right now!
My next step is to start collecting all the fabric stash and putting up some Cath Kidston patchwork sets for sale. Old designs - popular and no longer available... If you are interested, do keep an eye on my FaceBook page because that is much quicker for me to update.
Thankyou Friends x x x

So many ribbons...

 Much fun this past week :)
Updating some of the ribbon listings in the shop.
Some of these are the same ribbons for sale but in a new combination.
And some of them are new ribbons entirely!
 I also have a huge job ahead of me, getting all the remnant ribbons cut and folded to sell off in random mix bags. I hope this will make up the bulk of my January sale 2016 - so, watch this space....
 All of the trimmings pictured in groups are how they are listed to sell - because selling ribbon in tiny amounts is not at all cost effective to sell or buy!
I hope you enjoy how i have styled them.
 I bought myself some wee Baker Twine packs too.
I have quite a few crafty plans for this little lot.

 Annnnnd - ever popular... the GB ribbon is still in stock.
God Save the Queen :)

Rainy Day - mini fabric envelopes....

last week....
I bought various bits n pieces from this actual real life - go in the door and be inside the shop, shop.
Items included a wooden envelope template makey thingy. I LOVE a quick easy crafty doo-da.
**Link clicks you away to Berylune online**
***i also FB'd my trip there so go see it on my FB page***
And it was rainy. I had already been super and had a long few hours on the bike soooo i treated myself to some crafty hours and a pot of tea. "I wonder" said i "could i make fabric envelopes"
and so i set to....
 I firstly bonded the fabric to some wonderweb stuff. To give it shape and structure. 
I also had to glue the pieces closed. I suppose i could hand sew them - if i had more patience. But i didn't. They hold up pretty well just stuck with some cheap stick glue :)
 Then i had fun making some tag cards to pop inside. Also using stickers me n my girl bought 
(to share!!) You knoooooow me i LOVE a tag anything. tags tags tags tags.
 and then i played with different ways of closing the envelopes....
 LoL ( i hate that expression, but it seems less offensive printed on a pink heart sticker and adorning a bit of Liberty-esque fabric) LoL :)))
 Then i was like "oh yeeeaaaahhh i could use an eyelet. Tres cool"
so i did - very quick and easy. Happy little Crafter.
 So - go to Berylune (real or virtual) 
and have a go yourself? very quick. and then send REAL post - to people you know and love.
It is exactly what i did after this. I wrote real letters and then i sent them in the post!
