Shop Update

I’ve finally taken some time away from all my other projects to photograph and list a few things I made a while ago…. It’s been 3.5 years since anything was in this Esy shop! Wowza! Thah break was a bit longer than the 2 months I had originally planned! All of these and more are available in my shop (link in top banner).

All Change!

Hello stranger! It’s been a while, but I have a very legitimate excuse! The last month (and a bit) has been a complete whirlwind. Not long after returning from the UK and Iceland for my brothers wedding (more on that another time) we discovered it was time for us to return to the UK for good. So everything, that wasn’t sold, was packed up and shipped out (including all the lovely shop items I had made) and put in a container which is still winging it’s way to the UK. We are already here and starting to adjust to life on the other side of the ‘pond’.

We said goodbye to the beautiful ‘house that we built’ and our beloved lake and Canadian friends to return to friends and family in England, the south west to be more precise.

The house that we built 💛 #house #home #canada #cottage #myhaliburtonhighlands #loghome

I managed to bring my beloved Singer Featherweight with me and have continued with a commission but now that is done I am dying to get my hands on my fabric stash to make more! I feel like I go crazy if I have too long between makes/crafty projects!

Settling back into life in the UK has been interesting, a definite culture shock after the space in Canada, don’t even get me started on driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road! I’m already on the search for good online (and bricks and mortar) fabric shops in the South West. I would love any suggestions if you have them?

I can’t guarantee how regularly I will be posting, right now is all about finding jobs and getting life started up again, but I really hope I can stick around on here! As soon as our container with all our stuff arrives, the online store will be open for business again and I hope by then it will have more in it!

Open for business!

Super excited to announce that the store is finally open for business! It’s only small right now, but slow and steady win the race, right?!

Born to (have a) Shop!

I have had an Etsy shop since 2009. Originally I made jewellery with buttons and charms but once I came to Canada in 2011, I lost the love for making jewellery and my love for all things fabric came back to me – I spent most of my Art A-level working with textiles: screen printing, lino cutting, dressmaking. I carried on the shop for a while but my heart wasn’t in it so when I went away to get married in 2013 I decided to close for a while and have a rejig.

Well, it’s now a quarter of the way through 2015 and my Etsy store is still in vacation mode and I just haven’t had the motivation to get it running, even though I felt like I should on a number of occasions! Once Etsy went public recently it made me think about it even more and finally decided that maybe Etsy isn’t the place for me anymore so, I decided to embark on a new adventure and am very happy to present my new store!

You can get directly to it by clicking the shop link in the header, nothing in it is actually for sale yet, but i’m getting there!
