What a year! and THANK YOU

Wow it really is the beginning of another year? where did it go?

Here are some of things we accomplished last year :-)

We moved to an amazing house with the most amazing backyard! This summer we plan on throwing so great garden parties!
 One of my fav parts of the house!

 I made 5 new blinds with interliing for my daughters freezing bedroom and boy am I glad I did! this spurred the opening of An English View  Do you need custom drapes, blinds, pillows? give ma a call!

 My two lovelies went of to school (yay ;-) )

I started a new line of art work... watch this space for more! 

 I did keep on sewing for my little one after we close QC down :( a sad but needed goodbye to two fun years with one of my best friends Sheila, I sad sign of the times unfortunately!

 I got to wrok with another good friend Mila from LaRee Jewelry Design, her things are very cool... check out her custom scrabble tiles, some of the nicest I've seen!

This was our booth at a local craft fair this year... it was fun!

I got to decorate a wedding with a good friend Krissi, who made the amazing cake... she has a gift! 

We threw Ella a major princess party! I'm not sure who had more fun though, her or me???

 I joined a local etsy team :)

A 9yr old showed me how to make origami, which I turned into jewelry ( I know it's hard to stay grounded )
 I developed and obsession (one of many) with Alice in wonderland which sparked of my tea-cup pincushions...

 ... which in turn sparked of my felted ring pincushions...

... Which got me the amazing feature in MSL magazine that bought Ella's Wardobe so much business and along the way I got to meet some very kind amazing people. THANK YOU for all you kind emails.

SOOOOOOOOO as A HUGE thank you for your support I want to make a custom just for you, a custom felted ring.
