i spent sunday making these hearts for valentines day...they are 3 in one - a card, a decoration and a removable badge with a tiny leather heart for wearing on your sleeve, or any other suitable area. they're available here, of course.
i won't bore you with details of the house (as i suspected, the builders haven't left yet, but things are looking super...) but i did have an epiphany about a wall in the kitchen the other day...as i speak it's being painted with blackboard paint, but not just any old blackboard paint. it's only bloomin' magnetic too! you can find it at this shop for the very reasonable price of £9.99 for 750ml. i'll post pics when finished.
