Facebook page - I think!

I set up a business page on Facebook a little while ago but noticed that it wasn't appearing when I tried to Google it. I couldn't even work out what the URL of the page was! So after a bit of digging around I found an online tutorial and have now created a link which goes directly to my page (I hope!).
So now you can type in the above link and find me on there. Please pop by and say hi. I have already had one giveaway and I'll be hosting another one when I get to 150 fans.
Woo hoo!

Thank you!

I've been busy sewing up some sweet little lavender filled hearts just perfect for teacher's end of term gifts. Personally, I think they deserve a medal for teaching our little darlings. My son loves his school so I'd like to show my appreciation to the teaching staff in his class.
His teacher is male so I'm not sure that these are suitable so I'm going to get my son to draw his teacher then I will transfer the drawing to an embroidery and make a little coaster out of it. He's only 5 (my son, not the teacher!) so the drawing will be super cute. Hopefully the teacher will use it with his morning cuppa.

I think I might keep some of these to send to my friends. I think you can never have enough lavender smellies to pop into your undie drawer to keep it smelling lovely :-)

Hello to my new followers, thanks for popping by!

Beach life

The sun is continuing to shine on our little corner of the UK and we have been making the most of it by getting down to the beach after school and at the weekends. When the tide is out the beaches are a lovely, wide open expanse of sand. Perfect for nice long walks from bay to bay. I have no idea what my son is doing in that photo, inspecting for mini-beasts I expect.

We like to take the dog on big open beaches because she has an embarrasing tendancy to wee on sandcastles! Oops, lol. I don't know why she does it but she makes a beeline for them and likes to make her mark. Usually with me yelling and screaming at her, then apologising like mad to the irate parents. Maybe that is why I usually only take her with us in the winter when there are no sandcastles in weeing distance. What a little darling she is.

I am continuing my hunt for beach glass but no avail. I fear it will be a long time before I have enough to do anything crafty with it. Maybe I should widen my hunt to interesting washed up ceramics. Then no doubt I will be looking on You Tube for tutorials on mosiac or other things to do with fragments of pottery and beach glass.

I've got a school fete tomorrow evening and I hope that the weather is kind to me. Please wish me luck!
