Spooky Spooky Halloween

Well the year seems to be running away with me lately - where has the time gone and when was I on holiday again???

With Halloween just around the corner decided to make some lovely little cup cake candles with spooky hand painted pumpkins on them. They are really very cute actually and not scary at all would make an ideal gift to take along to any Halloween Party this year.

Back in the Swing of Things

Well it has been a while but after our fantastic holiday in South Africa I had a months worth of orders waiting for me when I got home - so it has been nose to the grind stone for me.

You can see more of our holiday pics here.

What a fantastic time we all had. The Kruger National Park is out of this world. It is roughly the size of Scotland and all the animals are free to wander about as nature intended. It is the humans who need to be caged in at night. We stayed in a fantastic lodge and it is unbelievable how bright the stars are when there is absolutely no street lighting for hundreds of miles around!!!

We ate and drank far too much of course (it wouldn't have been a holiday if we didn't!!) hubby even tried snails but I'm not brave enough to try that I'm afraid.

Anyway back to reality. Thoughts are now turning to the winter months and we will be getting in a batch of new winter scents soon - will post and let you know when they have all been tested. I am developing a new range of personalised wedding favours at the moment and hopefully will have these on soon.
