Disney Tsum Tsum's

So one day I was walking into town and I stopped these tiny little Disney toys in a window. These little toys were Disney Tsum Tsum's. I thought they were ever so cute. When I went inside I remembered that I had some of them on Instagram a few months ago. I got sucked in and had to buy a couple. They are just so tiny and sweet. The problem is, they are just so addictive. Also everyone seems to be obsessed with them also! As it's really difficult to find them now. Every time I walk through the doors of Clinton's I hold my breath and hope they have some. However, it's part of the fun. Trying to hunt them down. I'm really hoping lots of new ones come out soon, like in the Disney theme parks. I am currently being entertained by the app game on my phone. It's so cute...and I must go and play it now.

Made in Herne Bay at the Kings Hall

Last Wednesday I was part of Made in Herne Bay's latest event. We got to the Kings Hall bright and early and started decorating our room. We hung lots of bunting around the room and played jolly seaside music. Then all our little stands went up with our wares.
I decorated my table with a pretty banner with my name. All the stalls were laid out, and we were all ready for the day ahead.
 It was wonderful to see people enjoying my work. I sold cards and prints, which made me smile. Plus meeting people who have brought my work before is always lovely. And hearing about how they love their pieces.
It's so nice to be part of a wonderful group of such talented people. I feel inspired whenever I am with them. They inspire me to be better, and keep creating. I'm so happy to be part of an amazing group. Everyone's work is so different, and that's what makes this group so perfect.
You can find out more about the Made in Herne Bay group on twitter, Instagram and Facebook. We are already planning our next events, which is all so much fun!

Let's escape

Today was spent all day working. Lots of crafting, filling in forms, and of course lots of cutting and sticking. I woke up super early today and jumped into the shower. I got dressed, and I wrapped my hair up into a ponytail. I then sat at my desk and worked. Going through all my found materials, old stamps, paper, sheet music, and old books. Sipping juice from a pretty straw, while creating work.
It's good to take some time for yourself, to do the things you love, or throw yourself into your work. Today was a pretty good day.

I love you

Valentines day was a nice quiet one this year. I had to work until 3:30, but I was greeted by David. Which put a wonderful smile on my face. Plus seeing other friends starting to fall in love with each other on this special day was magical.
I was given beautiful pastel pink and red roses. These were so gorgeous, and made me very happy. I also got Wish I Was Here on DVD. I am very excited about finally being able to watch this movie. Searching for cinemas to watch the movie was so hard, they didn't want to show it near me. I know this film won't be Garden State, but it's still wonderful to finally watch another Zach Braff film.
We had Chinese and snuggled in the evening. It was nice to just have a relaxed day. Plus I finally got to use my Star Wars lightsaber chopsticks, which are A-MAZING!!

Valentines Crafternoon

On Saturday I went to my friend Charis's monthly Crafternoon. This months theme was Valentines. Of course I was very excited about this one. The table was decorated in beautiful pinks. Pretty glasses of water with fruits and berries inside were laid out for us. Scrabble name places and cute teacups also were on the table.
We started with yummy soup, which was so nice. Afterwards we had lots of delicious treats to enjoy. Little tiny chocolate hearts, heart cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, and mini chocolate loafs.
In this Crafternoon we were going to decorate mugs. We used different types of paper, and then special glue to make the mugs dishwasher proof. Which is amazing! So we had lots of fun choosing paper, cutting, and creating our designs.
It was a lovely afternoon with super people. I'm really looking forward to the next one!
