Lovely lampshades

I have recently made to order these lovely  lamp shades; they are a coordinating drum shape ceiling shade and a smaller table lamp shade. 

I love the customers chosen pattern and the fabric texture works really well as when the lights are on you can see the gorgeous weave of the fabric.

Hen Party Workshop

I love doing Hen Party workshops and this recent party was particularly special because it was for a good friend of mine. It took place in a undercover garden at a lovely London pub, craft can literally happen anywhere! The chosen workshop was customising ladies nickers and the hens produced some lovely creations whilst eating plenty of cake!

A workshop creates a great 'ice breaker' for a party where you may have people of all ages and where people may not know each other. It is always satisfying to learn a new skill and come away with a keepsake from the day!

Party workshops start at £6 per head (depending on venue and workshop activity) . Workshops can include making lavender hearts, bunting, decopatch coat hangers, tea light holders, pretty panties and even customising babygrows for a special babyshower activity!
