Hello Thirties!

So I have had a birthday. A big birthday. I have now entered my thirties (no, don't worry, I didn't make myself a card - this was an order for a fellow 30-turner a few months ago)! Actually my mother-in-law did hand cut me a card. It's a purposely rubbish attempt at copying my cards complete with a spelling mistake and fingerprints. 'Tis brilliant (I'll have to take a photo and add it in later)...

Anyway, the big day was last Thursday (thank you very much for all the birthday tweets!) and we celebrated by heading off for a long weekend in the Lake District. We stayed in a little cottage in Bowness-On-Windermere and spent a lovely few days walking, wandering, shopping (lots of charity shops!), relaxing and eating. Perfect. One of the highlights was The Jumble Room restaurant in Grasmere. Amazing food and lovely, hectic decor with mismatched furniture and loads of cushions. A little gem which we'll definitely be returning to!

My present is going to be a super duper new camera which I have been wanting for ages. I haven't got it yet though so these snaps from my trusty little point-and-shoot will have to do for now...

This week has been really busy with fitting in cutting orders with freelancing on a magazine over in Newcastle. Looking forward to catching up with all things Storeyshop over the weekend and next week. If you're waiting for a hand cut order, they should all be posted by Tuesday at the latest. Other exciting news is that I have a couple of new potential stockists wanting to stock Storeyshop goodies. Woo!
