yesterday we took maddie to the emma bridgewater factory and design studio in Hanley for some painting fun, which i joined in with too. we had a lovely little table set up by all the goodies (stamps and paints) for us. we were given a quick demo on how to best paint our practise mugs before the real deal. i went for a crown and star decoration and maddie just enjoyed all of it. next we went for the real thing-maddie had a mini mug and i had a 1/2 pint mug to decorate. we had so much fun and are having our mugs posted to us by the end of the week..... we then had a complimentary drink in proper emma bridgewater mugs!!!!! we had a quick look round the seconds factory shop too- here are the photos

im so so so sorry for noting updating this blog but life has been so busy bringing up the family, health probs and maddie starting nursery-i dont know if i am coming or going most of the time!!! i have been trying to be a little bit creative at the monthly crops and trips to ninas to craft and be pamered too.
my latest inspirations have come from websites like flickr.com/etsy.com and my fave at the mo-busymitts.com( where you upload your projects and people comment on your creations.
im still big on owls at present and cute crafts like kawaii and japanese themes.
i have been making a cushion cover, coaster,earrings and ring, dolls, badges, altered notebook,stone critters (with maddie) and a craft stash fund....
here are some photos of my latest creations:
