Oh well, y'know. A bit of this and a bit of that

People keep asking me, "What are you doing, what's happened to the blog?"

Ok, I know. I'm sorry. Just for you here's a whistle stop tour of the last few weeks.

The studio. Oh my Lordy Lord. The studio.

It's been battered, bashed, changed, painted, decorated, and generally pulled around so it bears no resemblance at all to how it used to look.

Bob has boxed in the roller shutter door which will make the place much lighter, warmer and quieter. He's also made a dressing and prop room for me. That's going to be amazing. I got the flooring for in there last week and once it's down I can get all the props I'm currently storing in baskets out on display.

The new studio flooring has gone as well and I've been running round and picking up some gorgeous new props while Bob's been doing all the hard manly work.

Carla made me this brilliant cushion. Isn't she clever?

You can't tell how big it is from the photo but I can tell you it's big enough to pose not one but two six week old babies on.

Well, we all know how much I like shoes so how could I not buy this?

I saw it in a shop one day while I was out walking the dog. Obviously I couldn't take the dog in the shop so I practically dragged him back to the studio so I could go and buy the chair. It's not often he struggles to keep up with me, it's usually the other way round.

Then when I was out having a posh coffee with Carla at the Darwen Gift and Furniture Centre (well worth a visit if you find yourself in Darwen ). I'm always in there,  it's just so jam packed full of gorgeousness.

While we were there we saw this:

As you can see, even the dog is worshipping it! It's going to go against my new red rose wallpaper (the chaise longue, not the dog) .

For the 'urban corner' in the studio, Carla got busy again. This time she drew some graffiti for me. As you can see by the hair, the girl she drew is obviously herself.

I can't wait to see the finished result.

While all this has been going on I've been having to hide all the debris every time I've had anyone in the studio so it's been a constant round of tidying up, which mostly consists of hiding everything behind the screens.

We've painted the kitchen and got loads of new samples images to show you. Watch this space for details of an open day with lots of goodies and special offers coming soon.

Aside of all this we've also had a steady stream of Cherubs through the studio and the wedding season is well and truly underway. Our feet have hardly touched the ground. It's been a busy year so far.

Over the next few weeks I'll be posting lots of images from weddings that we've shot recently and keeping you up to date with what's going on so don't forget to keep checking back. These are exciting times!
