I've had a bit of a revamp in the studio. I've added some wallpaper to a corner, for more of a grown up home kind of feel. What do you think? We've also got some daylight bulbs at the suggestion of my studio buddy Sue. I'm hoping they'll help with my migraines. Cross thy fingers!
Snazzy new butterfly boxes are the latest addition to the menagerie.
The cushions in the middle of this photograph are by Lydia Mary, our studio's Future Maker.

I've been taking part in an Instagram challenge: #MarchMeetTheMaker, set up by Joanne Hawker. It's so much fun! I am enjoying working my way through the prompts and learning things about my fellow makers.

Sawyer the Choco Toucan has been added to my etsy shop. He looks so happy on his perch :)
In other news I finally got around to applying to be in the Crafts Council Directory and was accepted! YAY!
