  1. Just got back from collecting my photos from Venture Photography.
    I have had a play with some of the images and I would love to share a few with you.

    This one features a posy made out baby sock buds and the colours really compliment my dress (yes that's me!!).

    Lovely shoes, ladies sock cupcakes and baby sock bouquet.
     
    Unfortunately running around with cakes (even pretend ones!) attract unwanted attention from certain people....

    eeeeeek!!  We really enjoyed our photoshoot and we have got some lovely shots, not only these, but some nice natural shots of me & Mr FFC that we will cherish forever.  Thanks Venture Photography x
  2. As well as the many fairs I have been attending and preparing for, I have also had a number of commissions to complete.
     
    The first was for another Golden Wedding Anniversary Towel Cake.
     
    Gold Anniversary 1
     
    A Towel cake like this would cost from £32 + P&P.  See shop for more information or email me with details.
     
    The next commission was a baby cake to be sent to France for a new baby boy.  The client did not want the cake to be made out of nappies, but clothing and blankets, but a few nappies had to find their way in to help keep the cake shape!
     
    France 5
     
    This cake costs £40 + P&P because of all of the special ingredients.
     
    And lastly but by no means least, is the gorgeous Ladybug Nappy cake.  This was commissioned for a very premature baby so included some very small nappies and also lots of useful baby items.  The ladybug itself was personalised with the baby's name in a very tiny cross stitch.
     
    Ladybug 3
     
    I think this cake is one of my all time faves x
     
    If you would like a cake like this one, one similar would cost £39.50 + P&P please email me with details.
     
    Had a great time at Bloxfest this weekend and was really pleased with how my stall and gazebo looked, decorated with my gorgeous handmade bunting.  I now have a couple of weeks off until Deddington Farmers Market.

  3. Well today saw the first time I used my new table cloths and homemade bunting.  I was at Bourton-on-the-Water's craft fair at the Victoria Hall.  Whilst the stall took a little longer than normal to set up, I was very pleased with how the finished stall looked.
