"Showcase Saturday"

Well bit of news for you all, I am in mid process of setting up a website were you can purchase and get a detailed view of what Arts of Amy is all about! I have literally been living and breathing all things computer the past wk. Loads learned but an up hill climb!
No creating this week, however have been doing a fair bit of photography for the web page. So here for Showcase Saturday I will show you a pic of a scene I set up. I dont think I will be using this one on the site however it's pretty all the same. On the site I have a vintage treasures section - my idea behind this photographic scene.


"Fabric Friday" (a little later!!)

A Very Busy week! Sorry this Fabric Friday is late! Enjoy X

Ready To Revamp . . . .

Hallo All,

I have been v.busy the past few days, trying out lots of different techniques to give my blog that bit of spark!
It's been a learning curve, but a satisfying one at that!

Isn't it great when you have been struggling to figure something out for a while and then you stumble accross the right way of doing it!

This was me, for the past few wks I have been bamboozled with how to change the blog background and how to add headers, yesterday if you have noticed I succeeded - My blog now looks a bit more decorative! Let me know your thoughts?!

I have also come up with a plan to keep me more active on my blog - Keep your eyes peeled for my "Named Days Of The Week" e.g I will be naming all Friday's "Fabric Fridays" my posts on Fridays will be connected to ...... Yep you guessed it Fabric! One which I am most excited about is Moodboard Monday - You will have to stop by on Monday to see what I'm talking about! X

A very cheap find for £2.00!! My idea is to paint it for my daughter's room, to be used by her as a little tea party table!

I've found some gorgeous china cups to complete this little tea party, very vintage and oh so cute! Take a look below............

Positivity Brings Rewards!

Wow much excitement, have had the editor from Dolls House magazine get in touch. They would like to use my Dolly Dimples in a future feature about peg dolls! This has been a great pat on the back for me and I intend to keep ploughing forwards - Positivity can seriously work!

I would like to thank Dolls House for presenting me with this opportunity.
Feature due out around September, I will keep you posted! X
