We Heart It

Was just having a little look at my stats, more to be nosey and see where my visits are coming from rather than how many and saw this We Heart It Entry!  Never heard of it before but my little post on Cath Kidston in The Lanes, Brighton has been hearted.  Is that grammatically correct?  It was Lissy Lou who hearted me and, if  it is the same Lissy Lou that I follow in blogland, thank you Lissy!

The site looks similar to Pinterest all be it on a much smaller scale?  Have you been HEARTED?  Do you use it?  Unlike Pinterest you do not need to wait for an invite so I may just go ahead and register.  No wonder I don't get any housework done!!  Am off to have a proper look around...............

Papercraft Inspirations Magazine

Click image to go to website feature
A few months ago I was contacted by Papercraft Inspirations as they had seen my blog and wanted to feature a card I had made.  I thought it was some kind of hoax at first, but checked it out and yep it was for real.  I was blown away, my little old blog who would have thought it.

The card they liked was the one I made for Mother's Day using the new Tim Holtz Sewing Room Die and it finally made it's appearance in the August issue of Paper Craft Inspirations magazine.  And there it was, my card, alongside many other talented crafters from the bloggy world, does that mean I am famous now lol!  I still can't quite believe it.

Thank you for taking the time to pop by, I really do appreciate all your visits.

Brighton - The Lanes

Back in May I was in Brighton for the weekend, which now seems like an absolute age ago!  Especially as the shops near me have already got some of their Xmas stock out, why?  Complete craziness! 

Brighton is famous for it's Lanes and yes whilst there I did get to wander round the little paved streets and being a true blogger there was the obligatory taking of many piccies.  So today I thought I'd pop a few on here and remind myself of the lovely time that was had.
Adorable dress in the window of the Dollydagger boutique.  Perfect for a stroll along the prom followed by tea and cakes don't you think.
 Speaking of cakes, and with icecream as well, do you need anything else?  Nope.
 There must have been nearly 50 Singer Sewing machines in this window display of, I have to say, one of my favourite clothing lines, All Saints.  Unfortunately they are just a tad pricey for my purse, sigh.
And then we ended up here!  Yup good old Cath Kidston, you can rely on the sight of her shop window displays to put a great big grin on my face.
Breakfast in bed madam.  Why thank you, don't mind if I do!!
Then it was time to get on with some sewing.
And with all that fabric to choose from I could be a while!!  And I was so the BF and friends took to the plaza cafes outside and left me to my own little world.  It was grand I tell yee ;o)

Thanks for popping by.  Lolo xx
