New products - canvas prints and greeting cards

I have just got these gorgeous canvas prints and greeting cards that are ready to sell.  We completely sold out of these greeting cards at The Yoga Show in October, that we now have more stock.  We now also have the same imags used on canvas prints and mounted prints. 

They are all very bright and vivid in colour.  All the greeting cards are hand-made and come embellished with bindi and sequins.  The canvas prints are also embellished in the same way.

These are now all available on our website.  More canvas prints are on their way.

Canbury Arms Christmas Fair

For the first time I took part in the annual Canbury Arms Xmas Fair.  I really didn't know what to expect but I was delighted that it had such a great turnout.  There was a constant stream of people coming in to look at all the variety of gorgeous products for sale.  The restaurant was also buzzing with people who stayed for coffee or an early lunch.  Most importantly, I sold loads of stuff!  The papercuts were really popular as well as the yoga inspired hand-stamped jewellery.  More designs (for papercut and jewellery) coming very soon!

One of the first craft fairs I will be taking part in this Christmas is at the gorgeous Canbury Arms pub in Kingston.  Its a pub that serves great food; even in the morning they do a lovely breakfast - croissants and drink as much coffee as you like.....buzzzzzzzz.


Please come along if you can.  Its on Saturday, 12th November from 9am - 12 noon.

Yoga inspired jewellery

I am so excited about this new addition to our shop.  Yes, there are loads of people making jewellery out there, but how many use yoga or asian design as an inspiration?  In addition to this, the jewellery can be hand-stamped with your own words.  Most of the jewellery incorporates sterling silver chains and charms. Others have bronze or copper elements.  Using combinations of metals together is a new trend in jewellery design.  You can see other designs at www.etsy.com/shop/jeweledessentials






Top chef in the making

Our 11 year old daughter loves cooking and a few days ago she decided to cook something totally new.  After a supermarket shop with a list a mile long, she created a dish she called 'cous cous and stir fried vegetables with a basil, parsley and mint sauce, served with steamed asparagus'.  Yes, I am her mother, but honestly, this dish was superb.  Even her brother who is always reluctant to praise his little sister, gave it a 10/10.  Took a photo for the records.

Success at the Yoga Show

Well, its over for another year.  The Yoga Show this year was great.  I met so many nice people and had a wonderful response from many people on my new papercut products.  The decorated wooden signs were another favourite with everyone.  Great buzz for all three days, but I did collapse at the end of it all.
