Wedding bliss!!

Well hello there!!

Long time no see, my fault really! Been off getting married and honeymooning etc and just had no time for anything else. Married on the 11th June, and couldn't be happier!

Yes that is a helicopter, what a treat!

Need to get back to my love of making all things baby and mummy. Please visit my website www.littleshop1.co.uk to see my lovely treat. Nappy cakes can be baked to your perfection. So if you know anyone who's ready to pop or popped already, please get in touch and I can make you something unique and fantastic for the new bundle.

Thanks lots
Abi (Mrs Walton!!))

Website and new baby ideas!

Hi all!

Well, not blogged for a while so feel a little bit out of touch!

Been very busy though, attending fairs and doing a few house parties to sell my wares!

Just thought I'd share with you a few of my new ideas. Unfortunately I've cancelled my folksy shop, as it wasn't working for me. I have however set up my new website http://www.littleshop1.co.uk/ and have some lovely piccies and details of the items I provide.

I'm hoping to progress with my very lovely baby items, nappy cakes and gorgeous cupcakes so please take a look and contact me if you would like anything.

Gift Parties & new ideas!

Hi all!

Blogging today to get some feedback and to see if anyone would be interested. I'll put up some pictures when I've taken some, but in the meantime would love to hear some of your comments.

I sell quite a few things on my Folksy shop like wine charms etc, but I do make other things.
’What are they? I here you cry!!

Well, I make gift baskets and gift sets, ladened with lovely things, all wrapped up ready to give to anyone for any occasion.

I have gorgeous pink pamper sets with lots of lovely bath and shower items, white/cream pamper sets too – ideal for girlies. Tea for two and breakfast sets, fabulous gift idea.

I also have really cute baby socks made to look like cupcakes, and bib sets too, all wrapped up ready. I have baby gift baskets and mens toiletries in sets too.

I will also be doing various others ready for Xmas too.
If anyone is interested please send me an email to littleshop1@hotmail.co.uk or message me on here, and you can come and see or let me know if you want a set making up for something I could send you pictures too. I am in Leeds, so could bring to you too.

If you’re my friend on facebook you’ll have seen also that I’ve asked for people to leave comments as to whether they’d be interested if I held a party, or for me to have a party at theirs?!
Please let me know if this is something that you like? Sure I could organise discounts for my Folksy peeps! x x

Thanks lots

First Folksy Experience!

Well phew!

It's the end of my first full month on Folksy, and I'm loving it. Listed quite a few things now
and really loving the whole experience. Made some pretty wine charms,
from some beautiful beads I got from Liz at the Little Bead Box,
and really enjoyed making things of my very own to sell!

Off on my holidays for a week on Saturday, with my lovely family. We're off to the Sunny Loire Valley and I can't wait.
Really looking forward to it as I start my new job a week after we return, so definitely deserve it, it's been hectic!!

My daughter starts high school to in September, so it's been a busy old time of late!

Can't wait to get back though and starts lots of new ideas for my Folksy Shop, just in time for Christmas!!!! Yes Christmas! Only 149 to go ha ha!! Happy shopping everyone x

Maybe if I get to 50 fans on here I'll do a giveaway?! Help me please x x

Bonjour mes amie!!!

Yes it's all things French today! Off on my jollies next Saturday and counting down. Me, the other half and the girls are heading to the Loire Valley for some happy camping, brie, vino and chillin!!

Old world villages and storybook chateaux bedeck the Loire, once fought over by Gauls, Romans, Visigoths and even Attila the Hun!

Been browsing our Folksy site for some French inspired goodies to get me in the mood. There's some gorgeous items to choose from, some real gems. Take a look x

I'll start off with my colourful glass bead charms. The perfect accessory to anyones vino glass!!

Ha ha!! This is one of my favourites. Cherryloco Jewellery does this fun curly 'french' moustache necklace ooh la la!

Or how about cute Pierre, the French Bear. Apparently, he likes to eat croissants and leaves crumbs everywhere!

Rosieplumpton gives us Pierre
So Cute!

Blondesbackyard, do these fabulous French Shabby sheek buttons.

Feeling hungry!
Pincushions or a funky gift!
Good enough to eat!

Or how about this beautiful grey french beret with a large blue flower and a matching scarf from thepinkfairycake, just beautiful!



Well I'm off to count down, so . . . . . 

Au revoir mes amis, Je t'aime pour toujours! x x x

Evening everyone!

Just thought I’d share with you my new additions to the wine charms family. Hopefully you will like them.
Used some gorgeous glass beads from Liz at The Little Bead Box. Some look good enough to eat!
Don’t forget, I have an offer on at the moment for a free gift box with every set of charms.
Here's a sneaky peek, take a look at my shop on Folksy and let me know what you think
