Treasury Tuesday

I love to see the lambs in the field near my house..
It reminds me that Spring is on the way and I REALLY LOVE Spring!


Coupling my love for lambs and my new excitement for my embroidery hoops I made this one..


Sweet lamb girl hoop.. Available in my shop here..

So all this lamby goodness then inspired this weeks treasury..

Inspired by the lighter evenings.. the lambs near my house and my love for Spring!

Springy lambs make my heart bouncy happy!
To click on any of these yummy fluffy lamby lovelies and see the treasury up close

Thanks for looking guys!

The week in review


WOW! What a week..... DATE DAY Monday was truly AMAZING and well needed! Loads of crafting.. Walter cuddles.. PANCAKE DAY!! New designs and ideas.. The beach and the woods! Happy? YES I AM!

First was Mondays super special date day with my Jacob!


So much fun.. The whole day to just hang out together.. SO..
We started with tea and cake..


Jumped on a train..


And we went to the seaside..


I love it at the beach..


And had silly fun..



I took photos of my favourite beach huts..



And we had fun on the prom and in the amusements..

Be a tourist in your own town... It's SO MUCH FUN!!!

Then Jacob took me for lunch to a yummy dim sum place!


WOW! It was GORGEOUS!!!!!!

I had an amazing spicy soup... tasty little tempura prawns
but my favourite of all was the little custard bun AND the mango pudding!

HEAVEN!
A truly wonderful day!
I would thoroughly recommend ANYONE and EVERYONE just takes a little time out with someone they love... Partner.. Child.. Parent..Pet! Just take some time..Kick back..Relax and HAVE FUN!!! 

Tuesday was one of my favourite days of the year..... PANCAKE DAY!


You'll have to make do with this picture because I LOVE them so much that I ate my pancakes before I could even grab my camera.. So instead all I got was a picture of the lemons!


I hope you guys all had a lovely pancake day! How do you like yours?
Mine? I like them plain with just sugar and lemon... Drools!

Hmm... What else have I been up to?
Well I got my FREE postcards and magnets from Vistaprint..


So.. everyone that shops at my shop will get a FREE postcard and the next 10 people to spend £10 or more in my Etsy shop will get a magnet in their parcel!

Speaking of the shop.. I caught up on some custom orders..



and created the first of a new line of jumbo hoops
based on my original drawings..

The first one was my rainbow unicorn hoop...Featuring Dobbin!


I REALLY enjoyed doing this.. And have SO MANY ideas.. And LOTS of awesome fabrics!
So watch this space!

Inspired by Dobbin's awesomeness I doodled these stickers for sticker Sunday


They come in THESE envelopes..

You can grab your stickers HERE

And then to end the week perfectly we had a walk in the woods..


Sitting in the woods on a springy Sunday!


WOW! What a wonderful dreamy week!

What made YOU smile last week??

And are you looking forward to anything exciting!

I'll leave you with me and my new happy vintage dress..

Illustration Friday CAPABLE

CAPABLE..having attributes (as physical or mental power) required for performance or accomplishment 


Hmm..... Well my brain works a little differently to most.. It's childlike! 
My knowledge is small..but my imagination is MASSIVE!!

I spend time worrying about this..And about getting left behind! 
Sometimes I wonder if I have enough skills. But I guess it all comes down to whether or not I am capable! And YES! I may be a little eccentric to some..But I'm a Mum (a fun one at that or so he always tells  me!) I run my own little business and also do a small job on the side.. I look after my little family and furry friends and I try my best to spread sunshine wherever I go!

As for being left behind..Most of the time the world in my head is more fun anyway.. 
Feel free to come along!

Oh yeah but the picture... Is inspired by my Mum telling me as a child that she needed 
to be an octopus to get EVERYTHING done..And my Mum is the most capable lady I know!

She says that the downside to being capable is that you will work HARD..
The more incapable you act the more people will do for you.

But I know full well that if she got to do it all again she wouldn't change a thing!

P.S.. I know it's a squid... My Jacob LOVES squids!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope it kinda makes sense!!??

The week in review


VALENTINES WEEK!!! Full of love love love! But it was also half term so lots of FUN...Cycling and hanging with my Noah... Walks on the beach and walks in the woods.. And WALTER!!!!

Well... As it was Valentines and this year we are cutting back! I decided to make my lovely Valentine Jacob handmade Valentines..

So I made this embroidery hoop..


And the perfect card... Haha


Noah and I celebrated with strawberry doughnuts for lunch..

And when my Jacob came home he brought me Cava and red roses..


Then my littlest gorgeous guy woke up..

And I gave him a Valentines...


And he was HAPPY!


Happy Valentines Walter! I LOVE YOU!!

Also as it was half term we had some lovely days out...

We went to the beach..


And for a wander in the woods..


I had a grotty head..So my self portrait looked a little like THIS...



BUT got YUMMY Melon goodies for my room..


And that made me feel A LOT better!!

I also started my mini Ethel embroidery hoops..


For SALE NOW... In my Etsy shop!

Apart from that I met a lamb friend whilst watching the sheep and lambs in a nearby field..



And then I guess you could say it was all about Walter.. haha





He's fitting RIGHT IN! He's VERY different from my Ethel! 
But I like how they each have their own personalities!
And Walter is VERY funny!

Anyway..Sorry this is mega late and I promise to get back on track and get organised next week!

Love and rainbows ...Kitty xxx
