A new purpose

A new purpose for… The children’s paintings.  If your anything like me and you don’t like to throw out the copious amounts of paintings/ drawings you get from your children but you have so many you kinda need to start disposing of some… Then this is for you. My mother in law has been on…

So here’s a story from A-Z

I used to LOVE the Spice Girls, and I’m not ashamed to still sing along to them now.. But moving on to the reason of this post. Here at 3 freestanding letters I was asked to personalise. 2 As and a Z.  I think the polka dot A is my favourite although I do love…

A good friend of mine who I used to work with at the Vets got her last lot of exam results the other day and she passed… She is now a Qualified Veterinary Nurse and entitled to use the post nominals RVN (Registered Veterinary Nurse). She has worked incredibly hard and is finally there! This…

They believe.. Do you? 

I made my two some jingly Christmas believe stars to hang on the tree this year.     My stamps are a little on the big side so I opted for a different font for Spencer’s one as having just that one extra letter in her name made the star looked too cramped! I also tried…

Hen Party Peg Game 👰

So today was Hen party number 1 for one of my closest friends Helena. She’s getting married to her handsome Thomas in October- who doesn’t love a autumnal wedding! We went to Bannatynes Spa in Ashford , and being a spa and with her family too, I didn’t want the very inappropriate games you usually…

I do believe in fairies… Fairy cakes that is…

Sharing with you the cake I made for my friends beautiful daughter, who turned 3 this month. My favourite part of this cake was the toadstools, I honestly think they are adorable, more so the free-standing ones on the top of the cake than the ones around the side. The sign was made using brown…
