Its hard living away from my husband, so I fill my time with emilythepemily stuff and have adopted some seeds and a piece of the vast welsh countryside. I must say I was hoping this would be a past time, but its taking over my LIFE!
I do love getting organic food from a few seeds. Its way cheaper than buying veg in the shop, and way more fun than shopping itself- especially when the nearest shop is 8 miles away.
Im currently growing:
various fruit bushes (not doing to well)
My Broad Beans have started to flower, which means they're one step away from the pods. that is the closest I've got to a vegetable so far...
Believe me there will be much more about this later.
Fabulous emilythepemily followers!
I love it when i get a photo of my hand printed goodies on people... and since my sale I've had a bit of an influx or newly satisfied customers. Here are my latest few. ..
|Little Things i Make|
Lately I've lost my confidence a bit, I dropped out of the creative scene, left the lights of Brighton and London behind and moved to the countryside. Ive hardly blogged, tweeted or even read other people blogs. (mainly because the welsh house has only just - this month- got the internet for the first time. A must for an online business) I've missed all the latest exhibitions, trade shows and markets. My peers are now so far ahead I can never catch up. I feel like Ive held back to recuperate from my terrible 2011 finale but in the process I've been left behind. I need to push things forways and stay motivated. My wholesalers are going out of business, but my loyal customers are still coming back and Im so thankful to them for buying hand made, supporting independent designers and keeping my tiny business going. Im thinking of become a freelance illustrator, but I have no idea where to start.
Im experimenting with loads of different things at the moment, but I'm going to get some advice and get things moving again, ready for when Im back in the thick of it- living in Manchester full time.
In the mean time Im so inspired by these people- not sure why. I think I'm love colour again...

p.s i had my hair cut to make me feel more confident- it was shite- I reshaped it myself- I now look a bit like a boy. Not sure what to do. I will show you all when I look less like a boy
