Folksy Friday!

So this week I have been mainly working with felt and making these lovelies, pretty darn cute I'd say (if you'll allow me to big up myself) and the perfect stocking fillers for any girl.

So having worked with felt all week I thought I'd check out other items of a felt like nature, hence my Folksy Friday this week.  As ever if you spot something you love just click on the pic and travel instantly to the Folksy shop!  Aaah the wonder of modern technology!  Have a great weekend, Ux

Folksy Friday!

When I started checking out sites such as Etsy, MISI and ultimately my fave of the lot Folksy I discovered amigurumi and fell in love.  I would love to be able to crochet / knit in this way and hope one day to have a spare hour or two to give it a go.  For the time being I am content to gaze at the wonderously cute creations of those fabulously talented people on  If you love these cuties as much as I do click on the pic and buy!  I'm saving up for Pierre the French Bear, he's my favourite frenchman (after my husband, of course)! x

Folksy Friday!

Gosh it's that time again already!  This week has been an exciting week on the shop front, I've had some sales which is always a good thing and the most exciting thing of all...........  I've got a logo!  And the banner, avatar and business cards will be following shortly!  I thought it was about time I smarten my look up and get everything on a more professional footing.

Here's my logo, all shiny and new.  Love it!

It looks so simple and stylish but I didn't appreciate how hard it is to try and encapsulate the 'feeling' of your shop into a colour and a font.  Taxing is not the word.....!  Thankfully the lovely Bonnita has taken me on board and brilliantly turned my whimsy into tangible ideas!

Anyway, enough of my rambling this week I have chosen items on the theme of pink stars and fairy cakes, hope you like them.  Have a good weekend, Ux

It's finally happened!  At 14 months my littlest poppet has started walking and mighty pleased with herself she is too!  She's been threatening to walk for weeks now but has stuck to the crawling as she can do so at the speed of light!
You might be laughing now Sylvie.....

Her elder sister at this moment in time thinks it's great, like having one of those walking talking dolls.  Perhaps in a week or two when she realises Jenna can now follow her anywhere she goes, Sylvie might have a different take on the matter!


Guilty?  Me Mummy?  No
 I am most pleased that Jenna has taken to walking as her climbing was reaching quite dangerous proportions.  In the last week alone I have caught her scaling the stairs, sat on top of her sister's desk and almost on the kitchen work top, having climbed up the back of her pushchair!  She has been known, since she was quite small, as Dare devil.  She was born with a glint in her eye and a sense of mischief, I blame her Papa!  In any event she's a lot of fun, though I have a feeling she will lead us a merry dance in a few years!

But most of all I'm pleased because I feel as though it's the real start of their relationship together as sisters.  They will now be able to run off into the garden together, hold hands and chase about together, play hide and seek, explore together, really start interacting with each other and becoming the best friends I hope they will always be.
