A little more of Paris

Oh Paris you have my heart

This time last week I was fortunate enough to be in Paris, spending the weekend discovering the beautiful, magical city and sourcing papers and cloths for my work

I did so much in one weekend, and really fell in love with the city. I based myself in Montmartre, which for
a solo traveller turned out to be a marvellous decision - such gorgeous streets full of quirky shops, history and stunning architecture. Here below are just a few little snaps from my adventures...

Oh valentine

I don't really do Valentines day myself (notably through lack of significant other in recent years!) however this year I do have more of a reason to make a lovely card... Well, I hope it turns out lovely! Here is the sketch...

Today I made a squirrel

& here he is! He is from a little kit I bought out in Jersey, I made my fella a turtle whilst I was there and chose the squirrel for myself, as he is certainly rather apt! He could possibly do with a little fur trim but I love him as a hairy beast! Now the next task is to get some tweed squirrels going on, and perhaps some floral ones too...

Snowy days

I doubt anyone is doing too much work today - its far too pretty outside! I had a lovely wander into Crouch End, wrapped up in my warmest coat and with a quirky head scarf to keep my warm - what a treat!

I'm going to get started on a bit of work soon as I'm feeling rather inspired, ooh with a hot chocolate beside me I think, winter can be joyous... I'm just hoping all the little birds and squirrels are safe and warm!

The first outing...

Well! Last night I had my first stall, which was at the wonderful Little Paris in Crouch End - my favourite shop. Accompanied by my lovely friend Carly Cox, we arrived and set up the stall after work, and then were really pleased to meet and greet so
many fabulous Crouch End folk who had come out for a wander during Barboot.

Barboot is a monthly event held in Crouch End, North London, which gives local artists and craft folk the opportunity to have a stall in some of the most wonderful independent stores and cafes, whilst having live music, wine & nibbles to enjoy. It's a unique event and one of my very favourite things about living in Crouch End.

The most amazing thing that happened this eve is that I sold my products! This was the most wonderful feeling and I am just beaming from ear to ear. Cards and gift tags were the most popular items, and it was both interesting and inspiring to hear feedback and know what to work on for next month.

I am indeed on cloud nine this morn, feeling so proud and humble about this amazing opportunity, and hopefully the start of something bigger...

Love from Katie xx

PS thank you so much to all my lovely friends who popped by to support me - and also to anyone who stopped to talk to me or made a purchase, you've made a squirrel obsessed crafter into one super happy gal

Time for bed?

At midnight last night I realised I had spent the last twenty minutes printing carrier bags, and spelling the word "squirrel" wrong. When this happens, t'is most certainly time for sleep!

Oh I have been a busy girl
