Business cards

I've just ordered some professional business cards and postcards, it took me ages to upload and design them how I wanted and now I'm just waiting excitedly for them to arrive. I used a close up photo of a commission I've just finished for a lovely customer of mine, I think he's such a sweetie!
This week I've been working on more mice for Hugglets, I've had so many requests for mice so I'm hoping to make lots for people to choose from, this weekend I should get a tan coloured one and a white one finished, then I'll start on more grey ones I think!

I'm a busy bee

There's simply just not enough hours in the day for all I want to do, the last few weeks have been mad busy and I feel like a hamster in one of those wheels unable to get off! Anyway here's a sneaky peek at what I've just finished this evening, its for an upcoming magazine piece, can you guess the theme!?

On another note my new job is going very well. I have so much to learn but have lots of support from the work based training team and I think I'm really going to enjoy this new challenge, if I could just have a extra few hours in each day life would be perfect!

So much to do, so little time!

I start my new job on Thursday and I'm just wondering why I decided to take on another job, where am I going to find the time I keep asking myself, well I'm just gonna have too. I really want this new job and can't leave the old one until I've finished my management NVQ (yep I'm studying too!) I've also never been so busy with the bears, I've got a mountain of commission's to do, Hugglets in 8 weeks Arrrggghhhhh! Less sleep I think is the only way I'll do it, right must dash and get back to work on the bears.

Bouncing and a tea party!

Today I've had the "post birthday" and "post holiday" blues really bad, last week was so lovely. I really don't think I've had such a nice birthday as I did this year and I really wasn't looking forward to turning 29, one year away from 30, I'd been having the real, "where am I", "what have I achieved" kinda worries but so far being 29 has been great, everyday last week I had something to do, Birthday drinks, dinner with a friend, lunch with a mate, the pub quiz on Thursday and on Friday night I went to a Hawaiian bouncy castle party which was great (did'nt go to bed until 4:30am) and then Saturday my lovely friends had arranged a tea party for me, total surprise and it was lovely, most of my special friends made it and we ate a fab lunch made by two of my best friends Kelly and Kim, they did a brilliant job getting everybody there and the cake was delightful! After that we went to the local park to play rounders, we did get a few strange looks a group of mostly 30-somethings running about like kids but it was funny, not the part where I fell over but that's another story!..... So now I have to get back to work, I have a mountain of commissions to do and a new job to start, I think I need another holiday!

Happy Birthday me!

Yesterday was my 29th birthday and I had such a wonderful day, the sun was shining so I spent most of the day sewing in the garden (even though I promised myself a few days off I just couldn't do nothing!) anyway I then met my two oldest friends and their little girls for dinner and then a few more friends dropped by for drinks after work. I had some fantastic pressies and have more celebrations to come at the weekend too, but that's a surprise so I have no idea whats gonna happen! It really was the loveliest of days!
