A Weary Traveller..

Hello! I’ve been a bit quite the last few days as I’ve been travelling to Bournemouth and back for this lovely promotion I’ve been given!

It was all very exciting and I had an amazing time, I learnt so much about the business I’m very proud to be a part of, I have to pinch myself sometimes!

Travelling by train was exhausting though, a lot of sitting and panicking that I was changing to the right train but it was totally worth it and I got to finish my book as well which was a brilliant read!
On the way back I had to cope on the London underground which was terrifying because not only was I alone, I had no mobile reception and it was my first time as well so I was a little terrified but I made it out alive thank goodness 😁 proud moment for me! haha!

The meeting itself though was brilliant, meeting the team, my fellow artisans and the CEO. We had the chance to learn more about the position we had accepted and what we will be involved in, it all sounds fantastic.
I’m so excited to be taking this journey as this is a brand new position they have just created and we are the pilots in a term. A lot of trial and error I believe is ahead but was that thing someone said about breaking a few eggs 😁🍳

After the meeting we made our way to a stunning hotel where we where all put up for the night, no joke it was incredible! I had an entire apartment to myself on the top floor over looking the river. And when we had all settled in we where taken for a walk down the river to a beautiful restaurant where I think we all stuffed our faces a little too much but it was incredible. I slept so well that night!! 😴

I’m so motivated now to push myself to make this work, I’ve already started planning a workshop to host in my local store. I’m going to start off with one of my super passions, crochet! πŸ’–
However I wont reveal too much but I have quite a bit of planning to do so let’s hope some people turn up otherwise I’ll be ugly crying in the toilets for a while 😭🀣 but let’s hope it doesn’t get to that!

Along with planning workshops I’ve just enquired about a textile apprenticeship as well which has also just become available within the company so that’s all very exciting too.

And I’ve also just started a teepee inspiration too which is going to look fantastic when finished so I’m excited to share that with you all too.

But with all that being said I was ecstatic to be home and with my boys again, you don’t realise how much you miss them until you see their gorgeous little faces again and hold them in your arms! πŸ’•
There where lots of hugs, kisses and maybe a few tears.. but no ugly crying thankfully!

Apart from that though I will be uploading some more crafts and things very soon as I have SO much to get on with but it is all exciting! 😊

Thank you for reading!

Here we go again..

I am back, I am sorry for my absence but unfortunately life engulfs you sometimes and it is hard to fit everything in.

Lots has changed in such a short space and I won’t bore you with the details but the positives definitely out weigh the negatives and I am full of excitement for what the future holds!

If you are currently following my website or have visited before you may notice a lot has changed as I have completely wiped my website and changed it quite a bit.
But in all honesty I just wanted a clean slate and I feel so good for doing it, I have removed all of my gaming stuff but that isn’t to say I won’t be posting about it in the future I just have to prioritise at the moment and unfortunately gaming is going to have to take a back seat. πŸ˜”Β 

On a happier note though I have lots of things to share with you as I have been a busy little bee 🐝 so I will be posting lots of previous makes to catch you up on what I have been creating and I have a list as long as my arm for future makes! But it is all very exciting stuff and I would love to hear what you think about them so drop me a comment or message me through my contact page.

I’ve also very recently accepted a job offer at the company I currently work for which means that I will have so much more to share with you in the way of arts and crafts which is super exciting for me but I am not sure how much I can say about it currently so I will leave it at that but I hope you are all as excited for me as I am for myself!! πŸ˜πŸ’–

I will leave this post short and sweet but I hope you all have a great day & you will be hearing from me super trooper soon!!Β
