The perfect present

I've been so rubbish at posting lately. I don't really know why, just haven't had anything to talk about.

Today though I'd like to introduce you to three talented etsy sellers who I recently asked to create some custom items for the hard-to-buy-for men in my life.

I've blogged about the super talented Kezzaroo before but she deserves another mention for the fab custom little person she made me. I can't post a picture here as the person it's for has been known to frequent my blog and their birthday hasn't been yet! Needless to say though they're going to love it.

For my Dad's birthday and Father's Day combined I decided to get him some pictures of his three dogs. It is impossible to get them to sit together so there's no chance of him ever having a photo of them all. So the fabulous etsy sellers bunny & askey produced two stunning pictures of them for me.

My Dad was absolutely thrilled with them- made a change from socks!

A bit of fun...

I deliberately chose a good photo (i.e. a professional one!), I don't look like any of them but it was a fun way to spend a few minutes!

Sorry it's been so long!

Wow a whole week without posting! I haven't really got anything to say even after a week of silence. So instead here are some of my favourite things from Etsy for your delectation (and my birthday is getting near if anyone reading happens to need birthday ideas!).

A quick round-up of my latest news...

So the bra contest has come to an end. I hope you all enjoyed designing, making and voting and will join in next time I have a contest!

I have lots of news to share with you all- a new family member, new flowers in the garden, a new gadget and new work.

First up, let me introduce you to my new puppy, Toby. Toby is a 12 week old Yorkshire Terrier and is very very cute!

I love him! He's only been with us a few days but he's already part of the family.

Our garden is looking very colourful now, here are just a few of the pretty flowers:

My Print Gocco arrived last week- it's great fun! I did a review/tutorial of it over on Craft Tutorials so take a look over there to find out more.

This is a set of cards I made with it, I sold one set today but will be re-listing another set soon in my shop.

What has everyone else been up to lately? Share your news in the comments. :)
