yay! New Felt Colours...

 THIS is what i wanted all along :)
I loved (and still love) the wool felt - how it feels and all the lush heathered colours.
But i wanted a greater range of my Craft felt to sell.
And now i have some!! They finally created new colours....

As alllllways - the colours are very hard to convey. All monitors vary so what i see is not what you see. 
And let's face it - eyes vary! 
What you see is different to what i see - that is the beauty of life.
Above is part of the new JEWEL range = Thistle. 
All colours are fully described in the shop FuzzyFish
 This is Honey Mustard - i am leaving it as Mustard. It is a French very slightly browned yellow as opposed to the 2 bright yellows i already stock in this range.
 Do not be fooled by this photograph.
This is SQUASHED BERRY and is very rusty / russet / autumn / natural and not RED as it appears here. part of the Woodland Range.
 Lush Jewel Tones together: Circus Pink + Teal + Mustard
 And very soft pastel MINT!
There are many greens now - see below! and i have done my best to describe them all in each listing.
This Set has a half metre of each of the 6x greens now available.
Now we have a wider choice of shades for our natural projects - so happy about that.
Bear with me :)
As i update all the shop listings so you can shop in HALF METRE increments.
and also i need to make up the new Swatch Sheets ASAP.
And organise the new colours into the A4 packs and mini sheet packs.
So much to do! But so worth it.
Glorious happy felt!

CLEARANCE >>> The Wool Felt is on it's way out!

 Gotta Go.
Gotta Go.
Really has gotta go now!
 All this lush wool blend felt has got to shift on out so i can use the shelving space for the *new* colours in the Craft Felt range.
It was just too muddled for me to sell the softy wool felt so i am going to re-jig and just sell the acrylic felt in more colours and brilliant bargain packages.
 I haven't got loads left...
for example:
9m of the chocolate and of the pumpkin - at the top stock end.
2m and 4m of white / pea / pistachio at the bottom end of the stock.
 It is reduced to £8.00 and being sold by the metre only.
If there are any half metres at the end i might list them, or sell some scrap bags OR... keep them for myself to make something cosy this Winter :)
 If you are a regular wool felt customer of mine, i apologise xxx
But as you probably know you can buy this lovely felt elsewhere.

It's my birthday - what's all the fuss about?

Tomorrow, i am 40.
That is what all this fuss is about.
I am so relieved to be passing through, what feels like a gateway of sorts. 
I am grateful for all the experiences i have had. They have built me into the person i am today. And i think i am a pretty good person as it happens. 
This is what '40' has done for me. I am unapologetically happy with who i am. 
I feel i have now earned the right to a few things i have waited so long for:
- to stop hurting about the past
- to stop apologising for who i am
- to stop trying to be 'better' 
 - to accept that i am loved and to return that love tenfold.
I am a Strong woman - strong physically, strong in integrity and character and opinion!
I care about my life - i care about me... for the first time EVER! I care about who i am and what i have to offer. It makes me teary in a way but i have stopped grieving for that young lady who hated herself so much. I have often wished i could go back to the younger me - as i am now - and tell her... "You are more than enough"
But i am 40! and i am now leaving that in my past and giving thanks to the fact that i am here. Because there have been so many occasions i never thought that i would be or that i deserved to be.
So, how did i get to 40? Other than generally reminding myself to breath in and breath out every single second, of every single day?
** L O V E **
If i am to pick one thing that i am most grateful about and the 'thing' that has saved me over and over and over again - it is love. 
The greatest gift that i have been given is the utterly unshakeable foundation of a family who love me.
No. Matter. What.
My family and my closest friends are who define me completely.
Because we are all Fuck-Ups, in our own ways and at different times. 
None of us are perfect and we all make stupid mistakes.
It's just that, when you are in a Team... it's easier to tidy up. It's easier to see those mistakes and then go back and try fixing them. Because having people on MY SIDE is what gives me my true strength.
And when you feel and know that you are loved - it makes you feel brave!!
And that bravery helps me go on and be a better person. A woman with truly good things to share with the rest of the world. 
So, yes, 40 really matters to me.
Happy Birthday to me.
Wonderful, Happy, Strong, Loving, Lov-able me!!!!
