:: my life ::

I am still working through the new photos for the shop, having taken hundreds and hundreds I realised that I had chnged a setting on the camera and they are all in too low a quality to show everything to its full glossy and loveliness. So today I took them all again!
I began thinking about what to make for my Mum for Mother's Day and was thinking of a sewn bird mobile, but then last night I started sorting out all my collage materials and had a brain wave. My Mum is a busy and hard working woman, who until very recently didn't have time or the inclination for all things crafty. Just before Christmas we spent time together making clay ornaments, herb bouquets and mulled wine sachets and she seemed to really enjoy it. So I have decided to make her up a 'creative inspiration kit'. I'm still putting the pieces together but when they are ready I'll let you see.
Are you creating any handmade gifts this week?
