Getting back in the saddle

Hello. Is there anyone there?
I have been gone an awfully long time haven't I. Being a mummy is an all consuming business. Days, weeks and months just seem to meld into each other and before you know it, 14 months (to the day) have passed since she came along and I wonder where all that time just went, in the blink of an eye.
Luckily I still think being a mummy is the best job in the world, but I do feel a yearning to reconnect with the designer in me, and slowly but surely, I've been getting back into the design saddle.

My NOTHS shop has been open a few months and I'm slowly starting to fill the shelves again. I'm not going to open my Etsy shops for a while yet, but I'm doing a bit of freelance here and there (whilst the little one sleeps, and on the days she is in nursery)

Some stuff that has happened/is happening:
I am published! My designs are featured in the new Print&Pattern kids book - whoop! I love the Print&Pattern books and feel so honoured to be featured amongst some of my favourite designers

My new hand painted hand stamped wooden Christmas star decorations are now available to order here

I now have a facebook page for my business. I finally caved - please do pop along and 'like' me.

Sadly, within the last week, we said a final goodbye to our beautiful Mellie cat. We are saddened about this beyond words. We will miss her with all our hearts.

I'm instagramming! It's kind of been my mini blog whilst I've been away from my big blog. Come and say hello, but be warned, I post lots of pics of my cute little chick  :)

And in the time I have written this, the chick has had her nap and woken up. Time to go and be mummy again.

yay! you're back - I've missed my Monda blogs, but your time away from blogland has obviously been well spent, she's a little cutie :-)
