exciting news!

So now to my big and exciting news, although I know a lot of you already know about it, I want to say how excited, speechless, thrilled, honoured and generally shocked and amazed I am by this said news! I want to say that it completely stopped me in my tracks on Friday, I had to have a wee moment to myself to let it sink in and to realise that yes it is my name there in black and white and yes it does link to my very own wee Etsy shop, eep! Even now, as I type this, I'm a wee bit giddy at the thought that...

...yes, I got a second placing in the Crafters category, in the Jury's Choice Awards in the Poppies!!!


Really, I can't thank the lovely jurors enough for this honour, for picking out my wee cushions and garlands especially when there were so many talented artists and crafters to choose from! Speaking of which, here are some stunning items from the 1st and 3rd place winners of this category...

1st place went to Yokoo, some of the most beautifully presented crochet goodies I've seen on etsy...

Clockwise from top left - The Pembroke Cowl in Sweet Pea, The English Thompson in Citron, The Elizabeth II in Barley and Raw Brown Warmer.

3rd place went to Maranon, the most gorgeous embroidered jewelry that has me swooning over delicious patterns and colour combinations...

If you have a few minutes please, please do check out these two artist shops for yourself and marvel at their incredible skills and talent. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Righty-ho, now I'm off to have a wee celebratory glass of red wine and a few squares of yummy dark chocolate - the perfect way to celebrate methinks!

Wishing you all the most wonderful day and have fun if you're watching the Superbowl - my man is a huge American football fan and will be staying up most of the night to watch it with his pals!

Emma, x
