SWEETVINTAGE78 The lovely and talented Jodie makes the most beautiful embellishments. If you haven't seen Jodies shop pop on over and check her out. But be quick, last time she sold out in a matter of a week and be careful her creations are hard to resist so I hope its pay week for you.
Jodies customer service is always impeccable. I can highly recommend Sweetvintage. You wont be disappointed.

OK here are two other shops that I have been drooling over recently. Get ready to wipe the slobber from your keyboard.

LILLALOTTA has the most gorgeous printed cotton tape. YUM gotta get me some. They are to die for. You have got to pay her a visit.

PRETTYLITTLESTUDIO. Now if you are going to pay Prettylittlestudio a visit please don't buy every thing, cause I want some too. I am IN LOVE with those retro vintage flash cards.
So many awesome things so little money 'SIGH'.
But guess what YOU get 10% off. See post above.

OK that's about all I have to share with you today. If you've got the time I strongly suggest you check out these 3 fabulous stores. But leave some for me OK. TFL

More sneaks...

Here's something cute for all you sweet tooth's out there. Cup cake buttons. YUM!
This design comes in 2 colour ranges. Yellow and pink.
I hope to have these uploaded into the shop some time tomorrow afternoon.

09 February 2010

New designs

Well I don't know about you but I love Robots. Must be the nerd in me showing through. LOL.
When I saw this fabric I knew I just had to have it to make some cute robot buttons for the shop.
So here they are 'Rockin Robots'.
There are 2 colour packs, a red and a blue. They are not listed in the shop yet. I just wanted to give you the sneaky first.
They will be limited because unfortunately as with all import fabric its expensive for me to purchase and there is a lot of wastage with this one as the images are few and far between, how ever the price will remain the same as all my other button packs.
I hope to have them listed in the shop by tomorrow lunch time.
If you have a sweet tooth stay tuned I have more cute, new buttons to share with you soon
