I’m really happily working on some new papercuts at the moment.  I’ve got three different designs which can be personalised for a wedding or anniversary, and three different designs that can be personalised for a new baby.  I can’t quite do the big reveal yet, but here’s a glimpse of one of the new baby ones….

I mentioned last week that I was Craftseller’s Blogger of the month, and very excited I was about it too!  As well as the article in the magazine I also provided them with a copyright free papercutting project which can be found here….  I’d love to see people’s attempts at it!

Well, yet again, I’ve gone too long without blogging, but when you hear why you’ll forgive me.  CecilyMae has relocated and is absolutely loving living in Leicester!  Yes, Leicester.  It’s so much fun up here with loads of arty crafty things going on and I have the studio I’ve always wanted…..

Let’s hope it stays for a bit.  In other news, I built a boat.  Well, sort of.  It’s a land-going boat, but good enough for a 6 year old and a 3 year old who have their eye patches and cutlasses at the ready….

Chesil Beach has taken a huge battering in the storms we’ve had this week.  It’s always fairly rough down at West Bay and Burton Bradstock, but I’ve never seen it like this….

I was really proud to be asked to contribute to the Raising For Rana charity event happening in April as part of Fashion Revolution Day.  It commemorates one year since the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh and the event aims to raise awareness and demand change and transparency in the fashion industry.  Have a look at their website or donations can be made via this site….
