Saturday 1st February AKA day off that wasn’t a day off (in pictures)

Hello. Today is my day off. I am meant to relax. I’ve been working hard all week. BUT OH NO I’m having to do loads of stuff for the Vintage Fair next week. I am enjoying preparing for it. Just not with a headache. Here is my day in pictures.     Everything is a […]

Art Nouveau Bag

Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]

It’s a first – I’m making things and teaching AT THE SAME TIME

It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]

The weather is awful at the moment. It’s dark and stormy outside – but […]

Chinese Fan Necklaces

The mother of my lovely boyfriend, Sam, went on tour in November with her orchestra. She picked up some beautifully designed origami papers, which I have used for the fans, so I have been spending time with these, a laminator, a sewing machine and some beads. Super. They aren’t all totally finished yet – only the […]

Necklace Experiment

Hola! Como estas? I have time off from school, so I’m making loads of stuff! I’m experimenting at the moment. I went to the Tate Modern a couple of weeks ago to see the Paul Klee exhibition, which was fab! It also had a big impact on me. Being an admirer of Klee, I thought […]

David Bowie phone case and other stuff…

Hola! How’s it going? It’s been a long week. From homeboys ‘bigging up’ my crochet on the bus, to a five-year old saying that I look like a boy then losing my diary AND THEN eating the spiciest Mongolian beef evah! It’s been busy but fun. I even had a lie in on Wednesday. I […]
