Meet Maisy...

I love Mice! So I was very happy to see a lovely friend of mine selling some beautiful little Lavender mice on her Folksy!
She arrived this morning, and smells absolutely divine!
I have called her Maisy :)

She was made by Kandi Pandi 
I don't think i could bare hiding her away in my drawers, so i'm yet to find a new home for her.
Maisy does have siblings, so if you want one go and check out Kandi's shop!

Hope your all having a lovely crafty week!

Bank holiday monday

Just thought i'd share with you a new creation.
My cousin Emma is going away to University in September, so i'm making her a box of 'homely' goodies as a suprise leaving present.
I wasn't really sure what to make, but i know she's taking lots of photos of family with her so decided a photo frame was a good idea...

What do you think?
I've put together some bunting aswel, but not sure what else to do...
Do you have any ideas?

On another note!
How is everyones cupcake swap going? Have you all got in touch with your partners? I'm sending my parcel on wednesday, just need to get a few more bits then i'm done :)

I've just started making some christmas bits now, which will be going into my Folksy shop very soon.

It's only a small post today i'm afraid, been very busy cleaning as my family are coming over for a visit tomorrow, so i'm trying to tidy away all my crafty bits!
Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend xx

Folksy folksy folksy!

Just thought i'd let everyone know, i now have a Folksy :)

My First Craft Stall

Me at my very first craft stall

Lavender Bags & Handmade Cards

Patchwork Cushions & Teacup Candles

Pegs, Spoons, Heart Plaques, Wax Melts & Pincushions

Bunting, Hanging Hearts, Plaques and Magnets
Not sure what to say.
We got to the market at 7:30am to set up and left at 4:00.
I made £26
I'm so incredibly upset, people were walking past and just 'pfft' -ing at my stall. Some lady asked why i was selling Cushions and candles....


I've really been put off from doing a craft market again, i think i'll just stick to online selling
(Not that anyone actually buys anything off me!)
Not sure what else to say...

Hello fellow crafty bloggers!
I really need to start blogging more, i keep meaning to do it in the evenings. But after cooking dinner and looking after a toddler all day, i just wanna be able to relax!!
Just thought i'd share with you my new cushions i have made today...

I'm absolutely in love with patchwork stuff at the moment, currently trying to find a good book. Can anyone recommend a good one for patchwork and quilting..?

It was very yummy indeed!
If i could of shared it with you all i would have... Maybe ;)
Hope you've all had a wonderful crafty day!

Just a quick one...

I've been neglecting my Blog recently...
(Not on purpose!)
My first Craft Stall is on the 25th August, so i'm really trying to get my stock up, especially with Christmas around the corner!
I've been incredibly busy sorting out prices, fabrics, invoices and all the other bits that comes with having your own business :)

Just thought i'd share something i made today...

A trio of hanging hearts, they were going to be filled with Lavender. But if i'm completely honest i couldn't be bothered and just wanted to put my feet up and relax, so used cotton filling instead.

I've had lots of interest on my FB page OhSewBeautiful
I have managed to sell lots of Candles, Cards and Heart Plaques.
Really happy with the way things are going for me at the moment. I never had the confidence to do anything like this a year ago!
Extremely excited to see what the future brings :)


Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
Love to you all, Jodi xx
