I've also been writing alot of features about Makers Boutique for various magazines and blogs too, which is weird, as I never saw myself being a writer at all. I write this blog as I talk, which you can probably tell, but when I'm writing articles I have to really try super hard, edit it loads and cut out the waffle! "Don't use two words when one word will do," says my mum!
I've stocked up lots of galleries recently including
Charlestown Gallery - Charlestown Cornwall
Ropewalk - Barton Upon Humber
Makers Boutique - Hayle Cornwall
Staacks - Wirral
New charm bracelets - sold out at BFQ - new ones sent out!
LOADS of pendants on Snake Chain
Preparing the teas jars!
Me and Katy have started running the cafe at the Makers Boutique markets now too, I was rather dubious about this as I don't have a great track record with catering! I will never forget when I dropped a whole plate of beef stroganoff on a poor guys lap when I was waitressing once. Not a bit, not just a-bit-went-on-his-leg, the WHOLE THING in his lap. He just got up in silence and walked to the bathroom while I wished the floor would open up and swallow me! Luckily theres no beef stroganoff here, and running the cafe was so much fun! We even made profit first time doing it so have big plans for next time!
I was in Cornwall recently for a friends wedding which was amazing, here is my beautiful friend below her dress was amazing! So her!
I want a bouncy castle at my wedding!
Beautiful cupcakes in her favourite colour
Amazing cheese board! she had written all the cheese descriptions on little flags! So cute. The family is all vegetarian and it was the best buffet I have ever ever eaten, it was so nice not to have to eat pickled onions, cheddar and crisps for once! (FYI not all vegetarians like quiche guys!) I was a big phat pig and filled up my plate to mountainous proportions! Yum Yum Yum!
Me and my sister
Wedding cars! Arriving in Style!
I made the happy couple a driftwood boat in her favourite colours for the bunting and then put their initials and the date on the boat.
Walking to the wedding... loved this old building in Cambourne.
Me and my sister were laughing out loud at this Chiropodist with his A-boards outside, only in Cornwall!
I particularly liked this tin foil / selotape peeling off in the sun version, if the others hadn't caught your eye!!!
Liv stocking up on road pasties - Niles of course - rude not to when your in kernow!
Me at BFQ with Bean
Here was my display below, lots of new boats - I'll upload the unsold ones into the shop online at some point....
Boats in Progress
Bean in boat filled with balls, only at BFQ! He was in his element!
Oh and this was a fun commission to do recently, someone wanted a mermaid sitting on a hook as his daughter got impaled on a rogue hook whilst diving on holiday, eek!!!! I hope she likes it!! He liked it so much I was asked to make another for his son so the siblings have a matching set.
And my new shoes, only usually buy one a year and last summer was so pants I didn't even bother buying one, already knackered them as I walk so much so its nice to see them here looking so new still! Sigh!!!! My old ones are next to them, didn't realise how similar they were till I got home!
Off to Cornwall soon to beachcomb some more treasures so I'll update you again soon! Hope you have been enjoying the sunshine still!
Goodbye, until next time!
