It's a busy time for us designer/makers

This time of year is a mixed blessing. I'm so happy to have lots of orders but finding the time to make them all is challenging to say the least. Today I made lamps from 8 til 6 non stop and I came home with an aching body and so so tired. Got lots done though! Lots of personalised lamps being ordere as prezzies this year! I am now a little restored after a rest and a bit of yoga (WHAT would I do without a bit of yoga) and some tea cooked by my darling daughter, so I just thought I'd say hello as I haven't managed to blog for ages!

There's all sorts of stuff going on. This Saturday Radiance, Hat Therapy and Snug Gallery are having our annual 'Handmade Christmas Fair' ...basically mulled wine, interesting nibbles from Lidl (like those lovely German, gingery biscuits with the thinnest icing on... yum) and a prize draw with great prizes from all three shops! Come along if you're about. 10-5.

The Art Market is having a satellite event at The Huddersfield Festival of Light. There will be lots of artists and makers having stalls. I won't be there but a couple of my lamps will be present! For more info visit the website.

...and I will be making lots more lamps!!! Bye for now.x

Stockists Map

I made this Google map of all my stockists for the new website which was fun to do ( I thought this would be really hard to do but it was really really easy). Nice to see how my stockists are spread out across the country (or not so spread out if you look at Yorkshire/Lancs). I can also see where the gaps are. Ireland? I need some lamps in Ireland don't I. Anyone got any ideas of pretty shops that might like some lamps???

I love that I have some right up in Orkney. That's like the cherry on the top!

Christmas Treasure Hunt at The Secret Arcade

The Secret Arcade is all dressed up and decorated for Christmas (look at Radiance's lovely Christmas wreath) and to get us into the festive spirit there is a treasure hunt to participate in. If you take a wander down the aisles you will find hidden letters that make up the words HAPPY CHRISTMAS. If you click on the letters you will find some treats and surprises from the shops. Go and have a play! Radiance is in the Home Decoration aisle.

Crafts In the Bay Festive Feast

I've just sent some lamps off to Cardiff to the Craft in the Bay Christmas Exhibition. There's a list of exhibitors here. Looks like it's going to be nice! Wish I could make it down. I like Cardiff!
