This weekend...

This Saturday and Sunday, I will be selling at Reet Sweet Neo Craft Event at the lovely Leeds Corn Exchange. As well as the usual suspects, there will be some new sellers and lots of exciting new and original items available! To have a look at who's there and what to expect, take a look at the Reet Sweet blog!




Here's a photo of the lovely Miss Bianca who is a crafter herself and bought one of my ponies and magically turned it into an amazing hairband. I think it look fab and great to see her turn my make into something new. Check out Bianca's work at her blog. She crafts under the name of 'Bee Anchor' and creates original and hand crafted accessories. My favourites being knitted necklaces and origami hair clips! She will be there at the weekend selling her wares!




Have I ever mentioned that i started my own official website www.jilmadethis.co.uk? Well, it's a little basic at the moment, but take a look and tell me what you think!


My flat is coming alone nicely. I am hoping to move in next week, so will post some photos of how it's looking soon! Meanwhile, see you at Reet Sweet!

Sharing...

While I've been busy working, stripping wallpaper, printing, painting walls, cleaning, screaming at the sight of massive spiders and lots of other things, I've come across a lovely website I thought worth sharing. I found the link on the lovely and very useful Print & Pattern Blog, which I follow nearly everyday.



Ferm Living are a Danish company who produce a range of interior products from wallpaper and wall stickers, to shelves and candle holders. Taking a look at their shop and blog made me very excited and wish that i could afford there lovely things. Their graphic twist on design creates wonderful tools for a chic and modern lifestyle. My favourite piece is the house shaped wall shelf which looks fabulous teamed with the house print wallpaper! Definately my cuppa tea!



In other news, my range at the Bowery in Headingley is selling well, and new items are being introduced, my flat is coming alone nicely and one of my oldest and loveliest friends has had a beautiful baby boy! I created a lovely print to go in his nursery and bought lot of other cute things for baby Noah.


Here's a sneaky look at it and two t shirts I made for myself!
