Mental Health and Wellbeing

Today I have launched my mental health and well-being page on my website. Mental Health is something I am really passionate about having had severe depression and anxiety; still batting through!

Crafting is a great outlet to improve mental health and well-being ticking 4 out of 5 of the NHS 5 steps to mental well-being.

In conjunction with this I am aiming to post a ‘positive quote of the day’ on a daily basis on twitter to bring some positive vibes to your day!

Have a great day. X

First Craft Fair if the Year

Today was my first craft fair of the year. Run by Ultimate Girls Night Out. Had a lovely vintage feel to it with great singing throughout. Here are a few pictures.

Next fair is a Mother’s Day special, also run by Ultimate Girls Night Out, based at the Arden Hotel in Bickenhill. See my events page for more details.

Artists Palette

Sneak preview of the newest item to be listed in my shop and coming to shows……

A felted cushion cover (cushion included). Made using the wet felting process. The top layer is a palette of multicoloured wools and silks. Goes with everything!!
