Cupcakes

I am not sure if you will remember but a while back I posted about an invitation I had designed for a friends Wedding. Well anyway we just went to the wedding and she had had these made......




how cute edible Belle & Boo!

Not content with eating one of every design! I spent a gorgeous day with a good friend and her adorable children & yes you guessed it made more cupcakes,
mmmmmmmmmm, mine was the one with the most sparkles!

Press & Pebbles

Last week was a GOOD week.
Last week Belle & Boo were featured in the fabulous Junior magazine.
I have LOVED this magazine from the start. My studio is stuffed with copies old and new, well thumbed and sticky noted, for endless inspiration.
So you can imagin how proud and slightly pink cheeked I was when I read the stunninly generous review of Belle & Boo, it really is a dream come true.
Thank you Junior one hundred times over.


I also wanted to share with you a new Etsy shop that my wonderfully talented friend Wendy opened a few weeks ago. It is called Letterfest and if like me, you love typography, letters, numbers, great design, beautiful craftsmanship & something unique, you will LOVE her shop. Here are some of my favourites below, now I must ask her if she will make me a custom boo pebble....how cute!

New Mirrors

At last, new mirrors, yey!
They are hand pressed by the lovely Mindy & this time we decided on cream organza bags, which I am very pleased about. In the shop now.







Also thank you to Nicole for emailing me these photographs. She choose 3 pieces from Belle & Boo for her friends baby shower gift & I think you will agree, she has presented them beautifully.

Pirate Party

aahhhh I'm back, I've been on 2 holidays, sshhhhh don't tell any one!

1st Russ & I went to the beautiful remote, turtle nesting ground, Olympos beach in Turkey.



Where it was so hot we could nothing but eat



& lounge


& lye


& sit


& rest


I did log on a couple of times (with help)


but even that proved too much in the heat!


Then I joined the girls in Spain, for a VERY mellow hen do indeed. We were in bed before midnight every night, which I was secretly ever so pleased about!


Anyway enough of my holiday snaps, at last I have finished, a piece that has taken me a long time to get just right. I do hope you like it, it is called 'Pirate Party' & is in the shop now. We will be offering it in a larger size, just as soon as we have sorted out larger mounts and frames.
