ribbon rosettes and Pepe Lapin ♥

Hello there sweeties!

Right so . . . I did it again didn't I! disappeared for a few days etc etc

But like always I have a very good excuse

i've been busy making some more ribbon rosettes. I think i've moved on from the ribbon flowers since they don't really sit right (and they kill my brain a lot) but these three were bespoke orders from a lady on Twitter who asked for ones in green, pink and purple.


I just hope she likes them!!!

but that's not all i've been up to because you see, on Thursday I popped into Ramsey in the afternoon to quickly meet two friends and they had a big bag of crafty goodies for me including a lovely plushie making kit they wanted me to test out


so obviously I did as I was told! It's a gorgeous kit that teaches you how to make 2 lovely little rabbit plushies called Pepe and Sophie


you get all the materials you need to make the rabbits, everything except a needle and stuffing (which I already had on hand . . . unsurprisingly!)


for now i've just made Pepe and I will attempt to make Sophie in a week or two when i'm a little less busy!


it took me about 2 days to make him but he's all finished now so here's you go, meet Pepe

so what else?

well my new business cards arrived yesterday . . .


I know I KNOW! I seem to spend far too much time (and money) getting new fancy cards printed out but I couldn't resist these little round edges beauties 


+ believe it or not but the first lot I ordered last month are already dwindling a bit, i've still got plenty of the mini cards left but the business cards seem to be vanishing into thin air!

Look looook though! Some new designs


+ lots of new pretty little stickers


I have no immediate plans to get more business cards or anything of that sort but you know me . . . I have some weird obsession with them, apparently!

in other news . . . as I may have mentioned lately I have a busy busy busy couple of weeks ahead of me

but more importantly . . . check out my new desk!!!!


I finaaaally have a desk in my room, ok so it's actually an old kitchen table but I don't care, as far as i'm concerned it's a super duper desk meaning that I don't have to leave all my arty junk all over my bed


+ it means i have a gorrrgeous view to glance out at every day while i'm working


it also means I won't have to keep sleeping in the spare room due to aforementioned stuff covering MY own bed because now i can just leave it all on the desk


long live the desk!
