happy Friday!

Hello my lovelies and happy Friday to all my friends! It has been a strange week this week with all it's ups and downs, a bit of a roller coaster shall we say! But in this wee corner of blogland I much prefer to focus on the ups and share in all the things that truly make me happy.

And today the thing that is truly making me happy is the hint of summer in the air, yay! It is only a hint mind you and I know it's not going to last long, but the clouds have parted slightly to let the sun shine though and I am appreciating every minute of it...

The other thing that has made me happy this week (which I knew it would!) was spending a few quality days in my wee studio. Singing along to a few of my favourite Josh Ritter tunes, drinking tea and nibbling chocolate, all the while finishing up a few ladies with wee tags and pretty buttons. Miss Lillian and Miss Luella have already found themselves a sunny spot in my shop window.

I also had a lovely custom order come through a couple of days ago, for this wee gold flower charm. The sweet and lovely person that ordered it is planning to use it as a shade pull in their own creative space. I love that, such a great idea! Talking of ideas I have lots of them tumbling about my head at the moment, a few new ones and some that I have been mulling over for a while, most of which I am itching to make a start on. So if this summer continues to be less than summery I'll be heading off into my wee studio as much as possible for some crafty therapy!

Oh! Yes, there is another thing that is making me very happy this week - learning just how caring and supportive some of the wonderful people in our crafty community really are! You guys surprised me, but in such a great way and I am so thankful to you all!

I hope you all have the best weekend possible!

  1. I admire your attitude, I think it's always best to focus on the positive too, and not let others get you down. And it certainly was nice to see some brief sunshine the past couple of days!
    Your two new ladies are lovely :)

  2. Miss Lillian is gorgeous! There is nothing better than spending rainy days creating things!

  3. Emma, I do like the look of your new crocheted ladies.

    Your positive view is an inspiration to me, and to others, too, I bet.

    Keep on exploring colors, textures, patterns, and have fun with it. xo

  5. I am so glad you blog, it really brightens up my day between office, kids and routine... gives me something to get giddy about and aspire to when I pick up the crochet hook at the end of a long day (when I do!). Thanks and glad the sun is shining for you. Sarah

  6. Hope the creative therapy does the trick to cheer you up. Especially if you have so much craftiness on the mind! Love the little square Miss Luella cushion - really attractive little miss you've got there. Have a good weekend. Will pop back in next week. Carina x
