The Wednesday Post... Photoshoot

Bonjour,

On Sunday I'm off to The Makery in Bath again for two workshops a hand embroidery one in the morning and a photography one in the afternoon. I'm super excited, I'll update you with how they went next week.

The Sunday Post.... Exciting times

Good morning,

Yesterday I travelled up to Lichfield to deliver some of my work to Emporium in Lichfield.It's a lovely gallery filled with lots of lovely designers work from ceramics to painting from textiles to felted dogs! I'm now lucky enough to have some of my work in there too! (yippee)I delivered some large Lichfield stitches, mini stitches, door-scapes and greetings cards.

The Sunday Post... Plymouth

Good Evening,

This weekend I travelled down to Plymouth to visit the Contemporary Craft Festival at Bovey Tracey. I am lucky enough to have friends that live in Devon so I used it as a good excuse to visit them too! We had such a fun weekend. The craft festival was brilliant. It was FILLED with such talented designer makers(and yummy food). I tried to buy at least a card off the stalls that I loved (in support of the just a card campaign) and have taken away a lot of business cards to make some purchases at a later date!


Then in the evening my friends took me to The Barbican and we ate fish and chips on the harbour side it was a perfect end to a fab day.


Oh and in other (very exciting news) on Friday I also made my first delivery of cards to The Merchant's House in Marlborough they are now stocking a selection of my new designs. I have been told they are out on display so I may have to pop in next week and have a peep (how exciting!). If you're in the area please nip in and have a look!


I also have my old card designs on offer in my Etsy shop so take a look here to grab a bargain!

See you soon

New Card Ranges Coming Soon {The Monday Post}

Hey Hey,

So I missed The Sunday Post yesterday so thought I'd creep in unnoticed and do the Monday post instead!

Last week I received my new card samples back from the printer, they are printed on gorgeous 350 GSM  linen textured board and what's even better they are SQUARE! I love square cards! One of the designs I got a sample of was the Lollipop Roses, it's wonderful to see it printed on such a fab quality card and in the new format.



I've also been busily stitching away on new designs too. A couple of new baby cards and also man card!


As I'm changing my designs I have reduced my current cards on Etsy the were £2.50 now £2 you can snap them up here.... https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MayIDesign


Well that's all for now! Hope you had a good Sunday (cough, Monday!)

See you soon

This is no ordinary Sunday post, this is a super exciting Sunday post!

I have my first bricks and mortar stockist (Yippee). The wonderful The Merchant's House in Marlborough is stocking my original stitch of the house, prints and coming soon a selection of cards and mini frames.


I have always loved the architecture in Marlborough and now to stock one of my faves is so exciting.



If you're in the area please pop in and take a look it's such a wonderful building so full of character and history and the shop has great gifts too!

Have a lovely bank holiday.

The Sunday Post

Good afternoon,

I hope the sun is shining with you today. It is (mostly) here in Wiltshire.

As I worked over the Easter holiday I booked myself 4 cheeky days off this weekend and I'm having a hoot. I have visited some gorgeous places in the Cotswolds including Bibury, Burford and Chipping Sodbury they are all super quaint and literally my dream places!



I have become a bit obsessed with photographing my fave buildings and charming front doors. So much so I've started a separate Instagram account for all the pics you can find me here @_the_little_house_



It's also inspired some new design ideas which I'm spending today cracking on with and having a creative play day:


So watch this space for new designs coming soon.

I also took part in the March meet the maker challenge over on the May I Design Instagram you can catch up here:


Righty that's about it for now, Hopefully catch up with you next weekend.

See you soon
