The Gathering Storm

In continuation of the nature and elements inspired Treacle Toffee range, this week I am going to be making things on the theme of tempests...sultry late summer days and the nearing harvest, when they sky is just about to burst with rain and all colours become saturated against the steely sky.

...also soon to be listed are things inspired by golden fields of barleycorn, heather and lavender....more leafy things and 'honesty'...

Plus, finishing some of the things I've shown you sneak previews of before, which for some reason have been left aside for some time.

Check back in the next few days and I should have some pictures of the finished articles!

All of this I am juggling with new things for Scatterbox Originals (and the Day Job of course!) I've made headway with some more artwork for mobiles and I plan on using the same designs for fridge magnets, just as soon as I can master my new medium!

Les chats de bavardage

Sylvie and Claudette meet at 7 every evening on the street corner to exchange news. What could they be gossiping about this time? Perhaps its that rumour about the crafts lady who lives in the attic - they say she spent almost a whole day sewing in her pyjamas last week.

Running away

Meet Sophie bear. Sophie is a circus bear, performing nightly on the trapeze. But she is not keen on heights or having lots of people look at her. She dreams of running away from the circus and living a different life. Maybe as a dental receptionist.
This week, I am mainly going to be
* making new style notebooks
* doing artwork for new pin badges and magnets
* making more coinpurses
* working on more new designs for Treacle Toffee

New new new new new!

These purses will either be going in Scatterbox Originals, or to a new venue...which I will tell more about when things are more certain :)

Watery starlight

Pssst! Sneak preview of some new things for Treacle Toffee...
Inspired by circlular ripples and reflected light in a lake, shoals of fish that flash by silently, papery 'honesty' seed pods and the night sky.
Featuring handmade wool felt and pieces of silk.

Both shops should be seeing a proper update in the near future, so keep an eye out!
