My floral resin range is now being sold at the Flower Bud which is the florist within Jean Pascal's Patisserie in New Town. I've been thinking for a little while how nice it would be to sell my floral range at a florist and where better than my local florist and patisserie where we buy our weekend croissants and baguettes!

Doing: Well, lots of things. Life has been going too fast and there's a lot of stuff that's just a blur. I don't think I've done one of these updates for quite some time. We had a little family holiday to Grindelwald for a few nights which was rather fun - we jam packed in lots of little outings and good stuff :o) Oh and we went to see Regurgitator - awesome.
I've been pretty busy getting all my new products ready and I feel a bit relieved that the latest range is now "out there" and I can work on the next thing. I've been saying to myself that I need to get more of my Japanesey work (polymer clay/chiyogami paper) in my online stores. It's not easy because they're all so different and it takes so long to photograph etc but I do plan on making rings/earrings/necklaces/hairpins with designs that I can keep producing so it will be more of a permanent range. I'll get it organised when I finally get a chance between creating more stock for markets and stockists - Xmas is around the corner so it's getting busier. Eeep!
Reading: The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Tracey Chevalier. Just finished reading Wildflower Hill by Kimberley Freeman (aka Kim Wilkins) - awesome engrossing story set in Tasmania.
Listening to: Berry, Tool, Rammstein, Clare Bowditch, Goldfrapp, Cat Power, The Paradise Motel
Looking forward to: The Paradise Motel tomorrow night, Big Day Out (fingers crossed - tix on sale in the morning) and Soundwave!
My lovely friend Sarah from Ingres Violin gave me a super special deal on one of their gorgeous laser cut trees made from Walnut timber. It is lovely a big and my new doily necklaces are going to look so special when they are hanging on it at my future markets.
