I celebrated my birthday this month and I thought I would share some of the treasures I received, starting with this sweet Rilakkuma Re-Ment birthday cake from Tokyo. ❤

I was also given a Clover mini iron which I’ve been coveting for years! I can’t wait to try it. This beautiful pincushion was handmade for me by a friend. ❤

BlytheCon UK 2012 Manchester

I had a great time at BlytheCon UK in Manchester this weekend! It was a fantastic event, the organisers did an amazing job! It was great to see friends old & new. I always feel really inspired after BCUK each year! Thanks so much to everyone who visited my stall! It was cool to meet so many lovely people & see so many gorgeous dolls! I was very very tired after traveling all the way to Manchester (at 29 weeks pregnant!) and didn’t take that many photos this year so I’ve borrowed a few from my Flickr contacts along with a few photos I took myself. ^_^

My Dolly Mixture stall! Photo taken by the lovely Laura/Liquiriziadolly just before the doors opened. Massive thanks to my bf & helper Jutt who carried my suitcases, navigated & served a few customers for me too. ^_^

My Circus Princess dresses made especially for BCUK sold out!

One of the coolest Blythe dolls I saw at the con, this amazing anatomical model Blythe on the Dutch Blythe Fashion stall. I got to chat to the maker of the doll and he showed me some photos of the making process. She is really amazingly detailed! I love the skull in particular.

Gorgeous miniature Alexander McQueen dress made by the talented Leo Couture.

Yummy birthday cupcakes!

My BCUK loot! I was very restrained this year and managed to resist all the beautiful outfits & dolls on offer as I need to save money for baby things! My modest purchased were a very cute tape measure hair bow (for me!) from Millie Made and some tiny Japanese buttons and snaps (for future creations!) from Leonidas. I also did a trade with the lovely Liz/Woollyrockers for one of her awesome Blythe carry cases and two cute little knitted dresses. ^_^ I also got some wonderful presents from my friend Lisa who was visiting from Japan! Halloween Hello Kitty Pez, beautiful Japanese cloths and some lovely rooibos tea, can’t wait to try it! Also a new type of Japanese fabric pen from Momolita that I can’t wait to try!

I bought home 3 of the 25 dresses I made for BCUK, and they are now available in my Etsy shop! Thanks again to everyone who visited my stall, I’m glad so many dresses went to good homes & I can buy some nice things for my baby room now. ^_^

I am now 30 weeks pregnant!! This week I’m back in my studio making baby things and getting ready for my next craft event, The Made-It Market in November. Can’t wait!

Nesting!

I’ve been having fun lately working on some DIY & sewing projects for my nursery. ^_^

This is baby’s room so far. I went for fresh bright rainbow colours to brighten up the room, since we can’t paint the walls.

I got some pretty sample pots of Crown Vintage paint and revamped this old chest of drawers that I got from the Hope Street Yard years ago when moved in to my first flat. I had been planning to repaint them and change the handles but it was a project I never got ’round to until now.

Each handle has a different design. ❤

I raided my stash and made some rainbow coloured bunting to decorate the room. I’ve used all sorts of scraps up and included lots of fabrics donated to me last summer by my friend Paula. ^_^

Some vintage toys & books I’ve been hoarding for years have finally found a home too. ❤

Baby’s shoe collection so far! These were all gifts from friends & family. ❤

Cute changing bag from my friend Lou! Thank you! ❤

Baby has been given some beautiful clothes by her Granny too. My favourite so far is this absolutely gorgeous dress by Catimini. ❤ My next project will be making some baby sized dresses. ^_^

The Made-It Market Christmas Special November 2011

This weekend I took my big bag of Jezebelles Boutique goodies to The Made-it Market Christmas Special, and I exhibited alongside more than 60 fantastic artists, designers and makers. It was the biggest and best Made-It Market to date, filling two huge halls at the Cambridge Guildhall! There were also groups offering workshops for the first time. A great day was had by all!

My stall ^_^

I shared a table with the fabulous Laura/PinkAppleJam and Selina/Bento Smile. I loved both their stalls!

There was so much temptation at the market with so many wonderful stalls, but I managed to resist most things… couldn’t resist purchasing from these two though. ^_^ I got a Bento Smile bunny plushie & PinkAppleJam felt carrot brooch! ❤

Bento Smile table!

Selina’s plushies & amigurumis are sooooo kawaiiiiii! ❤ ❤ They almost all sold, but I think she will be adding the ones she has left to the Bento Smile Etsy shop sometime soon!

Laura with her awesome PinkAppleJam stall! I made her dress from cute Pretty Cure fabric she bought back from Japan. ^_^

Laura was selling her fantastic comics & illustrations as well as kawaii handmade goodies!

I love her felt accessories! Laura will also be adding these to her PinkAppleJam Etsy shop soon!

The Cambridge Guildhall is a fantastic venue.

My loot from the day! Sad Bunneh & Angry Carrot! ^_^

Thanks so much to everyone who came to say hello, it was a great day! It’s always good to spend time with awesome creative friends. ^_^ I hope everyone likes the Christmas presents they get from people who shopped at my stall! For those of you who couldn’t make it, I’ll be adding some vintage style aprons, pin cushion wristbands & other accessories to my Jezebelles Boutique Etsy shop very very soon. ^_^ I think the three of us will be sharing a table again at the next Made-It Market in March too. ❤
