Jolly Good

Today was just generally a jolly good sort of day. I met up with lovely Fran for coffee and second hand kids book shopping, and she gave me my incredibly awesome Lyptis jumper that she made me, I'm so excited about it! Basically I either lost all my warm clothes since last winter, or I was just very cold, as I've got nothing. Until now! If you want your own, ask Fran (she normally makes dresses but she made a jumper specially for me!)

This is me, wearing my Lyptis jumper, holding an original illustration I just listed on Etsy. Pea Pod.

Another reason my day was Jolly Good is that when I got home, I had 1, 2, 3! packages waiting for me. One of them was this gorgeous Chirpy bird name Oleander (cute!) from Cath. Cath had an awesome giveaway on her blog, and I won! You can seek your own Chirpy from Cath's shop, Chunky Chooky.

Number 2 waiting for me in my mailbox was this totally gorgeous silver earrings from Jess at Epheriell Designs. This was another custom order, Jess makes gorgeous brass, copper & silver hand forged jewellery. My poor little ears only tolerate silver, and my face generally only tolerates round earrings, so I was so happy when Jess made this for me. Get your own here.

Then, finally, Chris & I did some tote bag printing. The colour's a bit off, but they're gonna look awesome! Hopefully if I'm not a total slack-arse I'll finish some tomorrow.

I also got an amazing package (number 3, for those of you counting) from Emma at benconservato... more on this tomorrow!

You look gorgeous in your Lyptis dress...especially given you're hiding behind artistically held items in order to hide your face. Nice work!

"Jolly" and "Good" are two words that should be used together more. Especially to describe a rad day! Thanks for sharing!

oh tote screen printing... yeah!
You do look gorgeous in your jumper, you look a little shy too, funny. I know all about putting stuff in front of your face. Sounds like you had a nice day.
