hello there,
I hope you had a good weekend, my mom and I have been busy and we are working like a well oiled machine, my bins for the spring craft show is starting to fill up, and I even had time on the weekend to shoot a new screen for my ceramic decals. I can't wait to show you when they are all done. the kids had fun visiting with family and playing with cousins. I am amazed these days at piper's vocabulary, she says "actually" a lot and it's quite cute. we were also told last week by lliam's teacher that his reading level is quite advance - he's such a smart boy, he asked if we thought he was ready for books without pictures. I asked him "don't you think you will still want to see the pictures that go with the story?" and he said "when I read the words, the pictures appear in my head". how can this kid be 5 yrs old.

I was recently asked by a customer to make the bag in the first photo, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but when she described what she wanted, I thought it sounded nice, I rarely take on custom work, not that I don't want to do it, I just don't have the time. I'm happy I did this one, it has inspired me to make more that are similar. will keep you posted when they are available in the shop - the strap snaps off so it can be used as a clutch.

when I have a new print I have to try it on all the different products I do, so the leaves print is available on the oblong pouch and storage box. I have made the oblong pouches a bit taller and I think it's such a perfect size.

off to do more cutting and printing....happy monday! xxa


  1. i love hearing about what p and l are up to
    such wonderful children
    and oh so smart

  2. Love the large pouch bag and the leaf print! It's great Lliam's enjoying reading so much, it can really be one of life's great joys, can't it?

  3. Your kids are awesome! Little P reminds me of Israel when he was her age, instead of replying with a simple yes he's always say "certainly" ;-)
    Love the new leaves prints...must add it to my Bookhou collection of storage boxes.

  4. Your little one could be in the film which oma m sent us to see yesterday -
    Out of the mouths of babes comes such wisdom! Sounds like an old soul ~

  5. I hope you plan on making some larger totes with the leaf print. I will buy one! It's a beautiful design.
