Exciting news, literally!!!!

I received a phone call from a lady from the Daily Mail back in June, she wanted some samples of my Lavender bags to put into a feature she was doing. I duly sent them down ASAP, I then spent the next few weeks buying the paper, only to be dissapointed every time, so in the end I did not bother (my Mum buys it most days, so I thought fate would take it course).

I then received a call this afternoon to say that the article would be in the Daily Mail on the 15th September. I don't know what to expect in terms of how it will look & also what will come from it, but as I always say " Suck it and see!".

Please go out and buy a copy, and let me know what you think, I will keep you updated on what happens at my end!

Have a good weekend!

This is my office/studio under construction, my hubbo decided after living here for 5 years, that it would be a good idea to start building my space. Unfortunately he started it 4 weeks ago and he has now been working none stop, even every weekend! He started his own business in April fixing people's faulty boilers, and my god there are alot of troublesome boilers out there!

The building outside was originally an outside toilet, and the previous owner added the attractive pillows & plastic roof. We have been using this as a coal store, garden furniture store and general dumping ground. With the building been out of action as a store, it now means the garden looks like we live in the middle of Baghdad!! I cannot even get to cut the grass, as the other garden shed has the cement mixer in it, blocking the door.

I will try and blog a little more, as my little dear starts Pre-school 5 days a week come Tuesdays, I can not wait. His a mention to Sara @ All about Eden, I told you I would update the Blog with a picture eventually. Next time who knows it might have all my favourite blogs on it.

It's my little's dears 3rd birthday on Saturday, so I might load up some more photos then.

Anyway on the work front, I am busy starting to load more items on ebay, and starting to think about my Christmas stock, as I have 3 big fairs including Chesterfield Christmas fair, which I am excited about. I am also adding a shopping basket to my website so hopefully this will increase the sales through the site, as at the moment the hits to the site no way reflect the amount of sales I have converted, so fingers crossed!! I hope it does not get to busy as my main machinist (my mum) is going on holiday a week on Monday, so I have her busy sewing each evening.

Any way a must go as Big Brother is on, I know of you will think I'm sad, but I have watched it up to now, so why turn off when there is only 2 days to go!
