200 Ideas to get you into Fashion Design by Adrian Grandon
In some ways might this book might sound likes it's a little redundant for me but there are lots of handy little tips in it. Since I was never formally trained in fashion there are lots of things that I missed out on learning, and I've picked a few things up from this book already. And it's also very pretty which immediately makes me like a book. So it's now living beside my computer with all my reference books. Looking at them makes me want to buy more.

As usual I've been pumping lots of energy into my supplies shop, and I'm quite chuffed with how sales have been tipping away lately. So all the good work is paying off, for once :) . I've also been doing lots of sewing, developments are afoot with the shop that sells my work in Kilkenny....more exciting news of that next week I promise.
I've also been trying to get together some St.Patricks Day themed items for the upcoming celebrations. Etsy have made some noises about focusing their attention on this green holiday and I thought I'd hop on that bandwagon and see where it led me. During the week I made these quite sweet patriotic pincushions. I'm happy with how they turned out, they have the tricolour but they don't look like mantle piece decoration from the house of Darby O Gill.
Add on top of that Valentines Day, and myself Johns 3 year anniversary, all in all it's been a pretty hectic week!! Phew, I even feel tired typing all that.

The restaurant that I work a couple of days in is next door to a shop called Carrig Donn. For the past two weeks I've been walking past the cutest display of ceramic cakes. Eventually yesterday I had to go in and buy one! I normally never buy things for the house, especially kitchen ware but somethings are too cute to leave in a shop, it needed a home that would love it. I figure I'll use it for a sugar bowl...and it was a steal at only 5 euro (about $7)

Gosh thanks so much for the lovely spam you pickled my blog with today. I have so much time on my hands I really don't mind wasting an hour going through all the posts and deleting them. It was so thoughtful of you to consider how much I would appreciate your effort.

When I was setting it up I found it a bit clunky, and it's pretty annoying that I can't sign on seperate from my personal account. When I eventually connected to the 'My Etsy' tab though it works a lot better. I'm rather impressed with the live feed to my blog too. Hopefully this drive more traffic/sales etc and make everything link together a bit better. There are loads of people I know who are on facebook who are otherwise internet/computer clueless so maybe it will reach a different market.
So if you wanna become a fan click here, or go to the shiny new button I made for my sidebar.
Note: I love this picture, I typed in internet networking into getty images and this is what popped up...I love it!
