I have had the worst flu EVER so have been resting, drinking lemsip and losing money due to being ill and not being able to go into work >.<
I also finally got a dining table (yay!) haha, I never thought I would get excited over furniture! But now my living room looks like a proper home ^__^ We also got another sofa so we have lots of seating for guests.
I am planning on doing some custom sets of false nails which I think I will trial either on facebook or the shop website. Im torn though, do I offer 20 nails (2 of each in every size) or take a customers measurements for each nail which means there is less wasteage? Hmm. Something to look into methinks!

I will be uploading new items to the shop including bag charms, hairclips and hairbands at the weekend. I got my halogen lamps fixed so its all good to go for product photos now! (yay!)
I am also planning on selling some handpainted false nail sets on the website, as I have had some great feedback on my nail art! I will only be putting a few sets up to begin with, and if it takes off I will be making more to sell! :)

I have also been making bag charms for CandyDoll Couture, which I was going to photograph tonight until I knocked not one but BOTH of my lamps over which made the bulbs go!
Hopefully I can pick some new ones up and get the pics took over the next week :)

I went to visit my friend today who I havent seen in a while. It was great to catch up and see her and her moggies :) She showed me some sketchbooks she has been working on, which made me realise I dont have to work on things that "fit" with CDC, I can look elsewhere for ideas and branch out into new things.
I have some great ideas now for a new area of CandyDoll Couture, which I will start working on but it wont be available for a while yet. I'll *try* and keep you posted, if I remember to update the blog!
I also finally figured out how to create a mosaic out of flickr images, so I put together a cool mosaic of my super cute craft room. I really wish I could always keep it that tidy though, it's covered with fabric, buttons and god knows what else at the moment!

I decided to put my photoshop skills to the test and created some yummy sweets which are now the background of the shop website!
I also have finally uploaded some hairclips to that section of the site, after numerous failed attempts due to Mr Site being crappy as usual!
There is also a cute Locket for sale on the site, with more to come in the next few weeks <3

It was super easy and pretty fun to make! All you need to do is download the clip to polyvore button and then start adding your stuff to the site in your items, and shazzam, start creating a funky set with your own goodies on!
This is my first one, next time I think I will create a sale set :)

I was slightly panicked when I heard that the Odeon had said they wouldn't show it due to dvd release dates *blah blah blah*I have breathed a sigh of relief finally as they have since decided that was a bad decision and WILL screen the film. Hooray!
So, I decided, since I am slightly obsessed with the book and what with the film being released on Friday I felt it was quite fitting to do a feature on Alice In Wonderland themed Jewellery and Accessories!
The first show off is this gorgeous Cheshire Cat necklace from Swarovski. I have to say though, the necklace is even more amazing looking in real life, it's worth checking it out at your nearest store!
Now, I love all of these pieces but as we know it isn't just big companies who are celebrating the new release, of course it's us Indie Designers!!
Next is a designer who I have featured before, PinkyToast on Etsy! She does the cutest illustrations, featuring lots of pink, big eyes and babydoll dresses!
Feel free to add your personal favourites of anything Alice in Wonderland via links on the comments page and enjoy the film when it comes out! xoxo
