Following on from my birthday with the horrible number, hubby has decided to whisk me away for the weekend ! YAY !!
So tomorrow we are off here for the weekend !
It's in Battle, East Sussex - scene of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where King Harold reportedly got an arrow in his eye !! I can't wait - we have actually been to this hotel a few times before and it's just beautiful. The food is fantastic and it's not too far from Brighton, so we have decided to spend Saturday mooching round the Lanes in Brighton and just generally chilling out. The children won't be coming with us - they're having a sleepover at Nanny and Pa's which is very exciting ! And even though the hotel has wi-fi in every room, I have decided to leave the laptop at home this weekend and have a Blooming Felt free weekend. Although I shall be taking a whole pile of crafty magazines with me which I have had sitting on the table for absolutely months now and I'm hoping to be able to catch up with some reading which I never get the time to do, but absolutely love.
I'm sure I'll have lots of piccies to bore you with next week.
2 new books on the site:
A Passion for Buttons has some fab ideas for button jewellery and of course there are no shortage of buttons to choose from on my site for use in the projects !
The Savvy Crafters Guide to Success - this is a bit of a departure from the books I normally stock, but I've found it to be sooooo interesting and informative that I thought others might benefit from it so decided to stock it on the website. So many people have asked me about how you can make a living from crafting - ok, so I don't actually get to do much crafting myself - but I think that if you're looking for ideas and inspiration on how to turn your crafting hobby into a business, then this could be the book for you.
See you next week x
