Wow - it's really snowing here! It usually doesn't hang around for long in Carlisle though. So - what's been happening this week?
Well on Thursday I got some very nice post! I won some handmade poppy seed soap from Sooz in the Shed and Sue very kindly put a bonus lavender soap in the envelope too - yummy!! I also received some supplies for my little Etsy shop - some brooch backs and some split rings for keyrings. Not very exciting, but they were purchased with funds from my first sale, so it was exciting to me!

Friday. Now Friday was just horrible. Poor little Zoe fell forwards while she was playing on her mat and burst her top lip open. Poor thing! I was in a right state. We ended up at A & E, where they had a look at her and said that there was nothing needed doing (phew). I felt terrible and was dreading telling Martin. I've spent the days since feeling like a terrible mummy and have hardly let her out of my sight since!
I was in town on Friday morning having lunch with a friend, and we came upon a new gift shop in Treasury Court - Ashbridge & Brown. They have some lovely items, including:
Bags by Eleanor's Attic
Crockery from Pip Studio
Cards from Pip Studio (this one was my fave - sorry about the rubbish photo!)
Soaps and Smellies (made here in Cumbria) from Edens Secret
I also went to Wilko's (on the advice of Anna from miss-beatrix) to get some (cheap) washi tape. I also got some pretty twine, so I feel like making some washi tape bunting now!!
Other things I've been busy with this week:
- Working on a new blog design
- Making some cards up for Special Occasions Stationery to display in shops
- Eating a yummy roast dinner, made by the wonderful Martin
- Skype-ing with my Mum in Australia
- Started to crochet Martin's birthday present
