The One Show - Vera Lynn

A quick one today just to say if you missed The One Show's Vera Lynn 100th Birthday Special on yesterday check it out on BBC iplayer here - The One Show 

Not only did they project Vera Lynn onto the White Cliffs of Dover, a stone's throw from my seaside home town of Deal, but they also used our Gramophone in the opening shots of the segment - skip to 23mins 27secs to check it out.

Take a look at our gramophone here -  Gramophone and browse through our other hire items.

Scrap Fabric Rosettes - Crafty Recycling

Today I want to share with you something I have been doing with my tiny scrap fabric strips.  It is a little fiddly but instead of just throwing away my scraps, or hoarding them away, I have been twist and rolling them and then pinning them.  

I'll be uploading some photos of finished scrap fabric rosettes and different uses for them in the coming weeks so keep remember to check back with us...

Love xx 

These are ready to have a few stitches through them and glued onto small felt circles (good use for scrap felt I have too!).  I use a small amount of fabric glue as I find it doesn't leave a hard lump of glue like hot glue and it means I won't burn my fingers and they can be washed if needed.

It is something that can done in the evening whilst watching TV or whilst the children are playing in the garden.  Whilst waiting to adorn a cute little head band (another use for larger scrap pieces) or summer dress for my little girl I think they look pretty on the shelf in a recycled jar too.

A few ads...

After a few busy weeks of a photo shoot for our latest hire items, our 4 year old's birthday party and one old and exhausted computer finally giving in, we are back with our weekly blog.

This week we thought we would share with you a few commercial jobs that we are proud to be involved with.  

First is a very fun eBay online advert, my daughter simply cannot get enough of watching this...check it out...

One of several beautiful relaxing ads for Yankee Candle, which instantly makes me want to book a holiday...

And the super cute Specsavers for Kids magazine....

That is all for this week, but remember to check in next week to see what we got upto on our photoshoot
