New Etsy items

I've been busy on my lunch break today adding new items to Etsy. Firstly, I've added my cute little Mrs. Flower keyrings onto there...

Also, an individual Snowman decoration, and my Mrs. Snowflakes. I won't post the pictures, as they've only been featured recently, but you can see them over there -> in my etsy pic!

In other news, I've decided to try a slightly new craft...button making. I've ordered some supplies from Blooming Felt so I will be experimenting with them after this weekend's craft fair. For which, incidentally, I am feeling a little underprepared - I am going to sew lots of things together tonight and tomorrow and by then I should hopefully be a bit more ready! :)

I'm so happy :)

Because, I've been given a blog award!!! :) :) :) :)
Lovely TipTop has named me as one of her chosen people to receive the proximity blog award. For the following reasons...
This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
Now, my job is to pass this on to 8 more people. Hopefully, they will smile as much as I am doing!
Sarah at Blooming Felt, who has lovely pretty things!
ClaireP, whose blog entries always make me smile, and whose to do list is possibly longer than mine..
Sarah, because my Happy Tree is smiling down at me from his shelf :)
Sara, because she always has a lovely comment to share..
Rachel, who sent me the most lovely swap package, and whom I am still hoping will start a crafty business :)
Teacher man, whose blog I found when researching teacher training, and who makes me laugh out loud whenever I read new entries! (no idea of his name!)
Swirly, who has a blog purely for the joy of cute things (what more could you ask for??)
and finally,
Carolee Crafts, who is an enthusiastic and helpful on the craftsforum.
Phew, that took a while! Thanks again TipTop!x

Doodles :)

Hello everyone,
Just a very quick post to say that if anyone lives in the Tadley / Basingstoke / Reading area, please go to visit a brand new craft shop which has opened on Franklin Avenue in Tadley, called Doodles! I am soon to be selling some of my PeggyCrafts items there alongside lots of other very talented peoples' craft work. Good luck to the two owners, Melinda and Katy, I hope it goes really well for you guys!!


Meanwhile, a little picture of some Mrs. Snowflakes...

Busy me

Hello everyone

I've realised that another busy week has gone by since I last posted on my blog. It's been very action packed - I've had another big order through my website which I've been finishing off today ready to post on Monday. And a few friends have been requesting items as well - which are also nearly done!

We had 'Wear it Pink' yesterday at work to raise money for Breast Cancer Research, which went really well - everyone looked very pretty in pink AND we had tasty pink fairy cakes - hmmmmmmmm!

You may find it uncool that I'm blogging on a Saturday night ... as do I ... we did have plans to go out, but unfortunately our friend has come down with nasty old food poisoning, so we have postponed for another week. On the plus side, I have enjoyed a nice glass of rosé and the X factor... ;-)

'Til next time, I'll leave you with this pretty pink flower xx
