In case I haven't updated my blog or my Folksy shop in a while, here is a link to my Flickr albums for you to see what I've been making.

This is where I store all pictures of the Nursery Name Hangers so you can see colours schemes.

Lou Week

This week - if all goes to plan - is going to be immense and I will be a happier, calmer person with a huge sense of achievement.

That's the plan!

I've taken the week off work and my toddler, Gracie, is still going to nursery 3 days and I am going to really strive to get a much made as is physically possible while occasionally popping out for coffee and charity shop raiding (which is all part of the process, I assure you).

So day 1 and Gracie slept late so I'm already an hour behind but well rested. Dropped her off at nursery and headed for Topsham. This is the coffee and charity shops bit!
But the most important job right now is list-making. I cannot function as a human being, let alone run my business, without multiple lists on the go, and if I hope to achieve anything this week I'll need a couple of lists to set me in the right direction.

So, I'll just finish my list and my coffee as it's nearly 10am and that's when the charity shops should be opening....

Week over

Well that week went quickly! Isn't it amazing how when you're doing something you love time goes so much faster than when you're data processing in an office?!
As predicted I didn't get nearly as much made as I wanted. I did get some sock kitties finished for my next craft fair. It's really important to have supplies of these as people seem to really like them and they're the product I'm known for. They just take so long to make!

The exciting part of the week was designing a new product - the Blue Bunny. I just can't help but make bunnies and I'm particularly pleased with these. I only have one finished at the moment but I'm going to focus my efforts on them and hope to make lots. As a happy side-effect of this plan it means a trip to ikea to buy more blankets to make them. Hooray!!

The sun has come out and I'm really excited about spring. I'm so up for cotton maxi dresses, little denim jackets and walks in the sunshine with the buggy! Gracie is nearly 5 months now and has graduated from the pram into a proper buggy seat. I can't believe she's growing up so quickly!

She's such a little star as she's been letting me get on with making things for orders and craft fairs. I've started a new baby range since Gracie arrived. It's fab having someone to test all my products on and I think she appreciates her new toys! I've made crinkle ribbon taggies, little squeaky bunnies and just this week finished some crinkly wing butterflies. Have a look...

There's so much going on in the crafting world this year so far I'm going to see if I can add a calendar of events on here to keep you updated. It has been such a great year already and I've made fantastic new connections, the best of which has to be getting involved with the Hub On The Green in Exeter. A wonderful little community hub of activity and friendliness. Check out their blog at or pop in and see Joey for coffee weekday lunchtimes (except Thursdays).

Ooh, Gracie is trying to get my attention and it's about time we went and woke up Daddy!

Back soon x
