Feminine pales and pinks..............

Just a wee post as I should really be doing something productive as opposed to procrastinating on my laptop!! ;0

I thought I'd show you a few pics of the items that should now have arrived safely at The Bowery, Leeds.

Some petite purses and highly textured dot brooches. All in creams, pale pinks, dusty pinks and floral patterned fragments. I was asked to make everything in similar colourways so that they would all sit well together, which I hope they do. You've already seen the clutch purses in a previous post so this is the rest as it were........

A close up of the bits of textural detail.

Not a v good pic I'm afraid with the flash back from the plastic, these are the lavender scented dots they asked for, a bit of sensual pleasure for your nose!

dots of texture, little splashes of colour and fun to pin to your lapel, bag, hat, scarf etc.


And just to let you know that I'm taking part in a Craft & Gift Fair on 30th May in Whitstable. Organised by Helen of Simply H Designs - can't wait to say 'hello' properly Helen!
It's my first fair since moving here, so it will be interesting to do and just nice to meet other creative bods down this way as well. So if you live in the area or nearby pop along and say Hi!

I'll take my camera with me to snap what goes on that day. I'm trying to be good at taking my camera with me places these days, you never know what interesting things you'll see!


Oooo also a small question, above you'll see the little origami pig my sis bought me, I love it! as I find the practice of origami fascinating. I'd like to learn to do some and wondered if any of you out there actually do any yourself? or could perhaps recommend a good book to learn from? something simple, easy and basic please! I can't bear those with inordinate amounts of details that I'd get lost in!!!! ;0 thank you. Hope you're all enjoying your week

Ooh we love origami! Our best starter book recommendation is Amazing Origami for children by Steve and Meguni Biddle. Then move onto Teach YOurself Origami by Robert Harbin. THese are the two that got us started - we have others but would get halfway through a complicated fold adn have to give up as it all became utterly inexplicable! The more you do the easier it gets as the folds become familiar so have a play!! t.x
