Apologies-my blog has been a bit quiet of late, and also apologies to any blogs I normally read too-I just haven't had the time/have been far too tired when I do.

I have been busy trying to get my craft business up and running-even got around to letting the tax man know about me last week (not that I will be making that much from it!).

It is going quite well, slow and steady but I am getting a few orders in and spreading the word (and my work) out there a bit.

In our new house I am lucky enough to have a craftroom, my husband still calls it his office but the desk is usually covered in felt, a glue gun, buttons and papers so I think I win there.

It is so nice to finally have a space where I can a. do any craft I want to and b. be able to leave it all out, exactly as I want and come back to it when I can. I feel very lucky to have this as it is something I have pretty much been dreaming about for years!

The last few weeks have seen me busy with new home makes and Mother's day makes too, I am thankful that my friends have given me a chance in ordering some of my items too.

Here's a little peak at some of my recent makes:

Mother's day doesn't have to just be for Mum's :) felt rose heart
This colour card has been popular with my netball friends-Mother's Day card
I must admit the hardest part of having this business on the side is the feeling that I am not really being there for my family as much, far too often the tv has come to keep the kids entertained whilst I have been up stairs making. So time management is something I really have to work on a bit!

I also get a bit anxious when sending out parcels as to whether they will get there ok, I am always worried the glass will break and with the cards I am worried they will get badly bent-but then I always like something to worry about don't I!?

If you like what you see I would be ever so grateful (if you are on facebook) to give my small business a like, just remember when you buy handmade you aren't paying for some fat cat at the top to enjoy a swanky holiday you are helping a small family save for day's out, clothes, or after school activities.
