Welcome to the Toadstool Cottage Crafts blog.

Hi I'm Pip and this is my blog about the behind the scenes goings on of my business - Toadstool Cottage Crafts. I've always loved craft and sewing but last year I thought I'd see if I could make it into a business.

This blog is a way of sharing my journey with you the ups and downs the successes and disasters (and there have been a few!). I know it will at least give you something to laugh at, but hope it will provide you with tips and inspiration for your own craft endeavours! If you have a question or something to say just leave me a comment.

Goodbye to 2016

Surprise! It's me, I'm back.

I must apologise, to those of you who were reading my blog, for my absence, but life got in the way.
This time around I am going to attempt to keep up to date with my ramblings.

Having spent weeks preparing for Christmas and being so excited about everything ....... I had to go to bed very early on Christmas Eve because I felt poorly. I had a lousy night and just wanted to stay in bed on Christmas Day but managed to drag myself out of bed when I heard my husband trying to cancel all the arrangements.  Nooooooooo.

Currently still wrapped in my dressing gown but beginning to return to normal, although my family would probably not agree with the 'normal' bit.

I have some fantastic presents that I will be using in 2017 and a massive list of exciting things that WILL be done and I will keep you informed all the way.

Just to whet your appetite......
  • I am going on a stained glass workshop course - so excited.
  • We are having secondary double glazing put in. You may not think that is very exciting, but believe me it is.
  • My husband and I are going to attempt to landscape our garden and build 3 (yes 3) patios.
  • I have a Dremel 3000 - can't wait to use it.
Plus there are a million other things on the 'To Do' list.

But I won't be starting any of these until 2016 has finished.
So Goodbye 2016.
Roll on 2017 and a very Happy New Year to one and all.
