I have just had the best few days away in Birmingham, and the highlight was seeing Mika live in concert : ) I wouldn't say I was a groupie, but I was very happy to get his autograph and give him one of my rainbows as a pressie...I hope he wears it!
I love everything about Mika, his music, showmanship, creativity, uplifting lyrics. He also appreciates handmade and works with his family for costumes and illustration. Check out his sister Dawack who works with him, and is the most fantastic artist.
I look forward to seeing him again soon!

I really do love Etsy!!! My 'Spectrum Bubbles' felt necklace has been included in this fab Storque (Etsy's Handmade Blog) article. I am over the moon and it is a first for me. An added bonus is the picture is the one that is used on the front page thingy too!!!
The article UK Style: A Bit of Fluff is all about POM POMS and is great fun in this never ending winter.
Making some fluffy pom poms is something I have been meaning to do, so today I seized the moment and made my first fluffy purple pom pom. It is one of the most tactile things I have ever touched and have a feeling it may be the first of many : )

Happy Days

Well my day got off to a great start when my 'Rainbow Plushie' was featured on the front page of Etsy * happy dance all round*
The sun has also paid a visit to Mid Wales which makes........SO much difference : )
Me and my little girl went out for a lovely walk, and were lucky to find a gap in the fence so us and our dog could get down to the river!
Did I introduce you to Woody, he is our beautiful Weimaraner who came to us by chance and has been a member of the family for 6 years now. In his prime he could clear the stile to get down to the river, but now he is 12 he just can't do it, as much as he wants too!
So it was great for him to be able to have a splash in the river and fetch sticks for us, he was just like a puppy : ) And we all smiled and had so much fun!

♥ Happy Valentines Day

♥ Happy Valentines Day!!!!
I love Valentines Day, it is great to see love hearts and flowers and to share a bit of love around ♥ Hearts are one of my favourite symbols and I just love to use them in my work : )
I treated myself some of lusummers new sweetheart fabric and made a card for my fab boyfriend, and a little squishy love heart for my daughter.

Get your skates on!

Those of you who follow me on twitter will have heard me going on about skating and rainbow laces : ) Well I am truly hooked on my new hobby.
I used to skate quite a bit when I was *younger* enjoying a few hours at Rollerworld in Derby on my blades or making the most of the supermarket car park when it had shut. So when someone mentioned a few girls were getting together on a sunday afternoon at the leisure centre to have a skate I jumped at the chance and dug out my old inline skates.
The first session I was seriously rusty and so were my skates, the next week the skates had a bit of tlc and I was whizzing around like the old days : )
Now the aim of the sessions are to get good enough to set up a roller derby team...........well I had never heard of it, so I went away and watched a few clips and read a few articles. It looked great fun, women of all shapes and sizes and wow what great outfits too....but whew DANGER and it could only be done on quads not blades.
So here are my first pair of quads...well since I was about 7 anyway......lets see how I get on??
