Surprise parcel!

I got a lovely surprise in the post this morning, a little parcel of gorgeousness from Lynsey of Swirlyarts!
There are some fab Christmas robin gift tags and a set of ten nursery rhyme envelopes, all handmade by Lynsey using recycled paper. The envelopes even come with a plain white label so they're post-friendly.
They all came packaged inside another recycled paper envelope, I particularly enjoyed the cautionary tale of 'Choirboy Jim"...
(Apologies for the dodgy photos, it's pretty dark & stormy here today).
Make sure you check out Lynsey's shop on Etsy for more handmade and ecofriendly items!

Peace & Crafts Fair

Just a quick blog post to recommend an event happening this Saturday (20th November) in Saltaire. This will be the seventh Bradford Peace & Crafts Fair, 'for peace, justice & the environment' - a fantastic family friendly day organised by Yorkshire CND.

All the details you need are in the image below, please feel free to spread the word!

Ruby Spirit Designs and Dig The Earth will be there in the Evans Room, so don't forget to come & say hi...

If you need directions you can find them here. If you want to travel by train the hall is only a few minutes walk from Saltaire station, on the Airedale line.

New recipe?

I had a conversation on Twitter the other day with the massively hilarious and always entertaining Mrs Gibson. We were discussing the similarity between our childhoods, and naturally our thoughts turned towards Vesta Chow Mein, Viennetta, marrowfat peas and Findus Crispy Pancakes.
As is often the case, one of the tweets was picked up on and I got a 'follow', the email is shown below...
It made me laugh so much, apparently you can report crispy pancakes for spam! Is that a new flavour then?!

Red Skies Tomorrow...

Forgive me father for I have sinned, it's been eight months since my last blog post... but I'm back! Ta-da!
I just wanted to share with the blogosphere my first ever Etsy Treasury, which I am enormously proud of. (Although I must admit to having had a Treasury West a few weeks ago...)
It's called 'Red skies tomorrow' and it's simply a big fat gorgeous slice of all things gloriously red. I decided not to attempt to wrangle a theme around any of my own shop items or use it as a self-promoting exercise, I just wanted to curate a good Treasury. What do you think?
