A new job....kind of!

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard my news already.  I thought it was about time I 'announced' it properly.

I have given up the day job.  As of this week, I am now self-employed, designing and making, and selling my wares!  I have also been working on a few 'secret' projects, more of which I will hopefully be able to reveal soon. 

There are loads of things I also want to try, 2012 could be a very exciting year!

Right, with that little announcement out of the way I guess you'd like to see what I've been up to lately, yes?

First up, I was asked to create a pretty, girly version of the nappy and wipe holder that I made for my little one a few months ago. 
I made this one super girly by teaming the cupcake fabric with some solid pink and a line of ric-rac. 

The cupcake button which I received from Debbie in the cupcake swap finished it of perfectly!  Funnily enough - it was actually Debbie that ordered this nappy and wipe holder!

 I've also been working on some christmassy patchwork - for one of the 'special' projects I mentioned earlier.  I just love these fabrics together, they're so jolly! 

Mondays and Tuesdays from now on will be super productive - these are the 2 days that Joshua will be in nursery.  The rest of the week I'll be back to being a full time mummy (crafting during nap-times of course!).
