This nice weather has given me some mega kite lust. I like making little kite brooches but can't help but feel that I could go one step further and make some kind of kite of epic porportions. I especially love their little triangles hanging down, which would look great in felt! Kites always makes me think of flat stanley for some reason!

Charles Eames' kite design. so good. pinched from here.

doll scenes

We recently went to Whitby and there were some old dolls in one of the charity shops crying out for a new home, but I decided against buying them as my never ending piles of stuff that needs a new home really don't need any new company. Kind of wish I'd got out my purse now though...these cute little dolls with their own shoebox world are great (hopefully they wont lead to my obsession with dolls houses re-surfacing!)

We're lucky enough to live somewhere with a clamp thingy in the basement for holding wood (or, as Dan uses it for, bicycles)which has helped me to think ouside of the felt box and plan on making some mobiles. I bought some thin wood poles and a saw!

I've been looking online for some nice mobile inspiration....

mine would be very different to all of these, mostly because it'll look more like my brooches but dangling in the air!

FINALLY we had some natural light coming into the house so I quickly took the chance to snap some pictures for etsy. New items listed today looking bright and perky =)

I've been busy playing shop at stalls at reetsweet events :) First at a lovely little fair at Nation of Shopkeepers, and then this weekend at the corn exchange. They're such great events, second only to handmade!
