an apple for the teacher

I've just come back from a great BrisStyle Committee meet (they are such a fantastic bunch of super dedicated BrisStylers!) and am feeling really positive about all the 'good things' . And it's well and truly time for another blog post .... now that Christmas, summer holidays and 'back to school' are out of the way it may be time to get back to the blog ... even though life continues on in it's crazy, frantic fashion.

Today, the (very) lovely Helen from Ruby2GoGo gave me this gorgeous brooch for my birthday - 'an apple for the teacher'. Isn't it lovely? It's made of camphour laurel wood (mmm smells good!) by Sam from Jetta's Nest. I love these wooden brooches - I hope she has more for sale at the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market!

Speaking of BiDM, it's the first of the year and it's in 3 short weeks! I'm quite excited making new little gift tags, 'Little Loxies' and eco- envelopes. I'll be in the same spot as last year; next to Little Chrissy. Yay!

Oh Ali I didn't realise that was a birthday present....and I didn't even wish you Happy Birthday!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a gorgeous and thoughtful present. I feel like an insensitive boar now. And thank-you again for the gorgeous present you gave me - you inspire me to actually get off the emails & write real letters instead :)

Oh how gorgeous is that apple! Happy Birthday Ali, I completely missed it as I haven't been in the forum much lately. I hope you have a fantastic year with markets and teaching! xx
