On the 4th day of christmas my true love gave to me a Rob Ryan print full of lovely words.
Sorry to the 4 calling birds.
Here are those lovely words;
The first morning of spring in the park, the smell in the air is fresh and full of promise and new beginnings. You feel as if you could start your life all over again a brand new start and it will all be ok. Do you know that feeling? The bright sun after all the winter dull dark days on your face makes you feel good. Somehow I was blessed to feel this spring like joy all year round. On grey days I smile on wet days I sing, on black days and damp days and windy dark skied bleak days I could easily cry for joy. Who was I to be so blessed? I felt guilty because I had done nothing to deserve this precious gift.
Tomorrow (11th December) I shall be heaving my wares down to Cafe Camino At St Marys (beside the bottom door of John Lewis) where the annual Christmas Funk Fair has moved to. There will be a variety of fabulous stalls including Godiva, Iconic in the Grassmarket, Totty Rocks and Trash furnishings. This year there is a licensed bar and with only a £1 entry there really is no excuse not to come along and browse all the stalls, have a cheeky glass of vino ( I will be) and buy some fabulous and unique presents for loved ones and yourself. Ive put some pics up of some of the stock I will be taking down along with a sample sale of old pieces which will start from £15.

Yesterday morning I braved the snow and ice to make the journey to the print studio. Despite my first fall of the winter season I made it safe and sound to get my printing done. So here are some sneak peaks of what I got done. All of which will be transformed into pieces I will be selling at funk fair next weekend.
Last week I sent some new dresses down to Denise from Swelle Boutique and now they are up on the site ready to go to new homes. All 3 are one offs so are perfect for that Christmas party where you will be safe in the knowledge that no one will turn up in the same dress as you. Both dresses are actually versions of 2 of the designs I do in my made to measure range at Godiva so if you are still hunting for that elusive dress for the party season this is the perfect option. There are 8 designs to choose from that can be adapted to suit your style and needs. Its the perfect solution to any Christmas dress dilemmas.
