Im sorry i have been a TERRIBLE blogger... well i have been that bad i don't know if i can even be classed as a blogger anymore.
I have seriously neglected my blog. After The Corner Emporium scheme came to an end i have been very busy and very un-organised!

I promise i will try my hardest to keep this blog a little more up to date.
In the mean time why not check out my Facebook page

I never seem to get much time to browse other blogs like i used to which is a shame but every now and again i take a minute or 30. Reading other people's blogs always gives me lots of inspiration and makes me feel really motivated to get creating things.
Here is what has been inspiring me recently......

Please add my Facebook Page its updated regualrly with images and info on what im getting up to.

Custom Order>> Apron

Michael from Fudge Fancies (one of the other shops within The Corner Emporium) set me a task this week. He wanted me to customise his apron with his Fudge Fancies logo. He also set me a deadline, to have it ready for this Saturday when he would be selling his fudge at the Saltburn Farmers Market. I managed to have it all stitched up ready for his farmers market and here it is...

Custom Order

A couple weeks ago a lady asked me if i could make a garter for her sister's wedding. I had never attempted to make anything like a garter or any wedding accessories. However it was pretty straight forward and quite fun to try my hand at something completley different to what i usually do. Made from some pretty lace i added a blue ribbon (something blue)and tied it in a bow at the front, added clear, white and pearly beads and to finish off added a vintage looking bow brooch. The customer was very happy with it, as was i, what do you think?

The Corner Emporium >> Shop Update

New canvas shopper bags....

As you can see i haven't yet gotten over my silhouette phase

and a moustache trown in for good measure!

Custom Order

I have been favouring silhouettes for a while now and have them featured on some coasters, cushions and framed screen prints in the shop. A girl came into the shop on Saturday and asked if i could put a print of a silhouette onto a t-shirt. I couldn't believe i hadn't thought to make some of these up sooner. I suppose with so many things to do and think about i sometimes don't think of all the possible ways i could apply my designs. But here is the t-shirt print. I think it looks pretty damn good, even if i do say so myself and im thinking of getting some more printed as soon as possible to go on sale in the shop.... and possibly one just for me. What do you think?

The Corner Emporium >> Shop Update

The theme for a lot the new items in the shop seems to be 70's retro. I love all the bright, possibly gaudy colours and the bold patterns. Not everyones cup of tea but i love it!

Super Retro patterned Apron £6

Patterned Vase £8 Patterned Bowl £5

4 beaded flower coasters £4

mirror mirror on the wall

New addition to the shop a pretty pink girly mirror.
Painted in a cute shade of pink and sanded in areas to add a distressed worn charm. Jazzed up with buttons and even scribble tiles reminding you to cack a smile... not a mirror :p
I ideally thought this would suit a little girls bedroom but i could see this fitting in well in my bedroom, may have to make another one!

Shop>> New Additions

New stock just in time for Mothers Day (3rd of April)

Not particularly 'Mothers Day' themed but new in is this wicker storage box. I liked its kind of unusual shape, it can hold a lot of stuff without taking up too much room, practical and pretty.

A stitch in time saves nine...

Although this has already sold i thought i would share a picture of this cute sewing box.

The wooden box has beautiful colourful patterns, im not sure what kind of style it is but i think it looks a bit boho. It isn't intended to be a sewing box but a customer had the great idea of turning it into one and filling it with threads that i stock and i made a little pink pin cushion that fits inside. Cute? What do you think?
