a new home

We've moved house!
It's not the ideal time of year to do it, but we'd been looking for a while and when this lovely house came available we went to look and had to say yes!
Our one condition was we had to be in before Christmas (so we could relax properly whilst we're closed over Christmas) and we got the keys on Saturday - the last few days have been a blur of rapid-packing & moving from one house to another and last night we were finally in! It's definitely a lot easier to move within the same town than it is moving across 3 counties like we did last time!
We're living out of boxes right now but it won't take long to get it straight...and THEN, and only then, I can put up the Christmas tree!!

Kitty Post

KittyPinkStars send the BEST post!
 I ordered these two fabulous hoops - aren't they great?
 Even though I knew what was in their the packaging made it feel like Christmas :-)
 Thanks KittyPinkStars, I love my hoops and they will get pride of place all year round :-)

I made 3 Large PomPoms yesterday - I resisted using 'normal' Christmas colours and made them in all shades of pink & grey...pom poms aren't just for Christmas you know ;-)

pom pom-ing

Did you watch Kirsty Allsopp's Handmade Christmas programme on Channel4 last night?
I did - and I neeeeeed to make pom poms!
 We sell these clever pom pom making gadgets which make pom poms in no time at all :-)
Of course, a couple of pieces of card will always work - it doesn't really matter which way you pom pom, as long as you make some ;-)

Production Line

We've been working hard this weekend getting all the pre-ordered boxes made and ready to send.  There's something very satisfying about slowly filling the table with boxes and boxes of colour :-)
Pre-orders need to be made by the end of today from the website here:

Christmas Planning

The front page of the website has been adorned with two Christmas notices - one with all the useful info about last posting dates for wherever you live in the world - if you order after these dates I will still send your parcel, but it may not be there for Christmas Day .... and the other is about our holiday shut down :-)
