Yummy treats!

I received a parcel through the post this morning. I had ordered my little ones some gorgeous felt biscuits from Pipinopolis, they are an easter prezzie. I am just so thrilled to bits with them, I had to show them off. They are even tastier in the flesh (or should that be felt?!)

I am currently in the process of setting up a new Folksy shop where I will be selling my cards. I have been meaning to do this for a while, as I have them in a few local shops, but none being displayed online. I think having their own store will showcase them better, rather than being alongside the jewellery, where I think it would look a bit unfocused.

My cards feature my simple illustrations, that have been printed, then handcoloured and cutout.

Truley amazing!

Wooden spirit Maika

I have just discovered the most amazing artwork on Etsy and I just had to share as I am just completely stunned by it.

Chopoli uses driftwood and bits of bark and polymer clay to create the extremely lifelike wooden spirits. Beautiful!

Healing properties of......breastmilk!

My little girl has been suffering from a really nasty eye infection for the past few days, and the drops that had been prescribed to her from the doctors seem to have given her a rash. My fiance, Frae, was searching the net the other night and found alot of posts saying that breast milk has amazing healing properties. So yesterday, poor little Doozie, got milk sprayed in her eye's (it sounds a bit harsh, and I think she was a little bit shocked!) Instead of the eyedrops, she just had breastmilk put it the corners of her eye's. But I think it has actually worked, her eye's are definatly noticably clearer. It is said that breastmilk can also be used to clear a blocked nose, ear infections and even nappy rash!
