My New Craft Space

The day has finally come to show off my new craft studio.  I absolutely LOVE this room.  It has taken forever from planning to finished I'm sure it's been a couple of years.  But here I am now this beautiful Saturday afternoon typing away my blog to you.
This is a dream come true for me.
Sorry the photographs aren't the best, it's actually a really hard space to photograph but I'm sure you can get the idea.

I feel so motivated and the ideas are flowing I can't wait to get creating in this room.
Thank you so much for popping along to my blog.  A huge welcome to some new followers.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
Love Em x

I'm in baking heaven!

I have been on a diet for what feels like forever!
I have lost 3 stone altogether but I'm getting fed up with it now.  I feel as though I am missing out on everything and more importantly I'm not baking for myself, hubby or our little one.  I so miss baking I enjoy it so much but I can't bear the temptation.  So I have decided if I am to continue losing weight I have to give myself a treat at least once a week.  After all this is about changing my eating habits for life not just until I have lost all the weight.  I am going to bake once a week whatever takes my fancy and I don't care how many calories are involved (within reason haha!)
This weekend's bakes, I have cheated and baked twice =)

Peaches 'n' Cream Cupcakes, these have pieces of peaches in the cupcake they tasted amazing!
and ....
Lemon Drizzle Squares.  We need smell-o-vision for this cake ~ Yummy!
I enjoyed every mouthful ~ I did share honest.
The extension is coming along lovely now hubby is finishing off the roof now and he said that fingers crossed if all goes to plan it will be ready to move stuff into this time next week ~ Yippee!!!!
Thank you for popping along to read my blog today.

Wedding Cake, Etsy and so much more....

Well I have been busy.... I had the pleasure of being asked to make my Cousins wedding cake for last Saturday.  100 cupcakes and a large Cupcake as a top cake.  I was so happy with how it turned out and the Bride and Groom loved it.

I have finally got around to opening my Etsy shop.

I have so many ideas flowing for Christmas so please watch this space.  The button is on my side bar for easy use.

I have just finished some new Christmas brooches.

These will be listed later in Etsy. Along with some of these.......

Christmas hair clips.

Oh! and an update on the studio, the roof is finally here so fingers crossed is going up today - Yippee!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to pop over to my blog.  Please feel free to leave a comment I would love to hear from you.
