Somewhere along the banks of the River Thames lives a small group of Mice and Bunnies...they are brightly coloured and believe in food, tea parties and hot summer days. They are the Briesberry Mice and Carrotby Bunnies and wish to welcome you to their colourful world...

Cambridge Handmade! (So much to do, So little time!)



As you may already know, on the 5th December I'm going to be exhibiting at Handmade Cambridge craft fair. Its my first ever craft fair, so to say I'm nervous is a bit of an understatement! I've been busy sewing christmas mice, and have designed some new cards to go with them....



The nice thing is, if no - one buys the cards I can give them all out to my family and friends for Christmas as I'm sure they will appreciate them ( good old family and friends : ) As I work part time too, I've only really got two days to finish making stuff (eek!) My plan is to have some little mice and bunnies with detatchable reindeer ears ...

So, the other nice thing is that I will get to meet some other sellers and hopefully get some Christmas present shopping done too! So everyone, please come along and say hello! Here is my shopping list are some of the other lovely things that will be on sale  .....


This gorgous little purse is by 'The Print Tree' who make fantastic purses, brooches and earrings. I love colour and they use just the most fastastic printed fabrics for their creations.





'See the World' - Letterpress Notecards by 'Bread of Many'. Another of my loves is illustration and these are just perfect.





Bunny Solar Lantern by 'Glowbox' . Bunnies? In lantern form? No batteries required?! How could I resist! And made by a fellow folksy seller too.





Awww, what a cutie! This little robbin by Claire Hurd Design would make a perfect tree decoration, I feel.

There are many, many other lovely artists, craftspeople and designers exhibiting! Should be a date for your diary :)


In other exciting news, I recently purchased some knitting needles as I wanted to make some animals from this book.



I love Donna Wilson and have a soft spot for her quirky knitted creatures! If you haven't heard of her, please check out her website. She also makes lovely cushions and rugs...I want it all! But can't afford it, so I'm going to make my own...I'll keep you updated to how its going!
